Edited By Biljana Mileva Boshkoska

In social sciences the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) is an ever growing phenomenon. Emanating from the need of knowledge about society and economy, we are constantly striving to create ideas and methods for a better use of information. This study analyses different practices such as business process management, business process modelling or relationship marketing. It also discusses the use of ICT in a variety of examples taken from different fields such as education, web clipping, public safety, tactic knowledge, or protection of intellectual property and offers an outline of state-of-the-art applications of ICT in social sciences.

Secondary School Students and Printed Textbooks


Abstract: Modern information and communication technologies suited to be used in the educational process have to bridge the gap between the desires of today‘s students for modern educational content and compulsory literature in the form of printed textbooks. This paper presents the results of research on use of printed textbooks in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences and Engineering in the third and fourth grade of secondary school. The survey was conducted among 806 students from 21 secondary schools from 9 Croatian counties. An analysis of research on the use of printed textbooks in the final years of secondary school shows that a significant number of textbooks are used on a small scale during the day at school and even to a lesser extent during independent work at home. The aim of this paper is to highlight the need to find alternative and complementary solutions whose application should modernize the educational process and present courses to students in an attractive and motivating way on a variety of devices that today‘s students have at home, at school and on the move.
