Mixed method was employed to critically explore how the integration of a specific PASCO-designed technology (SPARK Learning System) is meaningfully integrated into the teaching of selected topics in Science: Earth and Environmental Science. It is focused on the feasibility as well as the effectiveness of using the SPARK Learning System as a primary tool in learning science to result to better learning and achievement on the part of the learning driven by a highly developed intrinsic motivation to learn on the part of the students. An evaluation is conducted to correlate the ability of the technology to develop high intrinsic motivation on the learner leading to a better student achievement to achieve the end goal to learning as well as learning how to learn. Instruments used in this study were adopted from standardized questionnaires available on literature. Other instruments were developed and standardized for use in this study which included the Achievement Test and the Evaluation Form. Interviews were done to delve into the deeper thoughts and emotions of the respondents to validate all numerical data culled from this study. Cross-case analysis of the data gathered were employed to reveal some recurring themes, problems and benefits derived by the students in using the SPARK Learning System to further establish its effectiveness in the curriculum as a forerunner to the shift towards the 21st Century Learning.
