Use of Information Technology in Teaching Semiconductors Physics


Background/Objectives: The article discusses the possibility of studying the physics of semiconductors using information and communication technologies to improve teaching efficiency. Methods/Statistical analysis: For the study purposes, the authors have analyzed the content of semiconductor physics educational programs, the appropriateness of using information technologies in the study of the properties of semiconductors, and also 30 tests have been used. Findings: The authors have demonstrated the effectiveness of the course combining traditional and innovative educational technologies. The principal directions of the computer simulation use have been studied. The authors have presented four types of lessons based on the use of computer tools and have briefly described their features. The results of the control test have been shown, and based on these results the effectiveness of the semiconductors physics teaching has been analyzed. Teaching the semiconductors physics using a set of various modern computer technologies enhances the level of fundamental education of students, the formation of certain types of professional activities. Applications/Improvements: The study results show that the experimental group of students have more comprehensive and in-depth knowledge on the physics of semiconductors.
