Abstract

The study focuses on how best to foster the science process skills and improving achievement of secondary schools students in Riau Indonesia. This research used a quasi-experiment method which involved two experimental groups and one control group. The first experimental group used an environment learning module based on Information Communication Technology (ICT), whilst the second experimental group used the environmental module without ICT. The third group went through the teaching and learning process using conventional methods. The instruments used were the Science Process Skills test and students' achievement test. Analysis of the findings was done descriptively followed by subsequent inferential analysis using ANOVA and MANOVA tests. It was found that there exist significant differences in science process skills and achievement between the two experimental groups and the conventional group. Based on the findings, it is suggested that science teachers need to be adroit in varying their teaching approaches as well as orientating themselves in using ICT in their teaching.
