We present the design and evaluation results of an innovative teaching approach with the use of ICT regarding Light Reflection and Diffusion in Greek primary school. First, we present a survey, which investigated 140 students’ initial ideas about light reflection and diffusion, and vision. Then, we describe the design of digital educational materials including a Toolbook software application, a Greek physics educational software, and an applet simulation on the web. Appropriate printed worksheets were also developed for the students. Teaching was implemented in 4 Greek primary school classes, in which 81 students participated. Another 59 students were taught the subject traditionally. Before and after instruction all students answered a written questionnaire. Data analysis revealed that students of the experimental group achieved statistically better performance and manifested conceptual change but the control group students presented only a minimal evolution in their initial ideas.
