23 Using ICT in Auce Secondary School Common use of ICT: Search information in Internet Part of our teachers create materials for lessons and homeworks – reading texts, presentations, exercises, lesson plans, tests, exams,.. Use of multimedia CD-ROM and DVD (English, Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Latvian Literature, History, Geography,...) Interactive online resources in Latvian – www.dzm,,,,,,,, Auce Secondary School websites –,, http://local.auce.lv http://fs-it.blogspot.com Other online resources Some teachers create study sets for different subjects, including online content multimedia learning objects

24 Use ICT in different subjects and school everyday life Latvian language and literature Latvian History English Russian Physics Math Chemistry Biology Economics Culture History In teaching students with special needs Geography Visual Arts Music Classroom teachers Out of classroom activities For contacts Informatics
