Towards the integration of computer simulators in the teaching of physical sciences in DRC: case of Ista / Kinshasa
Keywords:ICT, technological innovation, computer simulators, ISTA/Kinshasa.
A country like the DRC considers scientific and technological training as a sure means for professional insertion and for its economic development. Science education remains a fundamental issue for its citizens. This article attempts to identify, through the analysis of data collected from all teachers of physical sciences at ISTA/Kinshasa, the merits of using computer simulators in the teaching-learning of sciences. This type of teaching will greatly promote the professional development of future engineers of this school. Indeed, considered at the present time, as pedagogical tools, computer simulators do not yet occupy an important place in teaching-learning of this academic subject in DRC. Hence, the question of the necessity of an adequate technological equipment in this institution and of a techno-pedagogical training of the teachers. This is the major concern of the Congolese state authorities.
