The paper is a study in the usage of modern information technology (IT) in interdisciplinary teaching of notions featured in the physics and chemistry curriculum. It encompasses specifically the study of “The Ideal gas laws” and their real life application, as well as “The electrolysis of water” (8th and 10th grades, respectively). The crucial teaching-learning-assessment chain of lesson is comparatively analyzed within the “traditional” and “modern” lessons respectively, the last one by making use of didactical support such as: Interactive sequences of the “Elements of thermodynamics and molecular physics” (an educational software that is part of the AEL platform, a SIVECO product) and Virtual Physics Lab from the web-site The paper consists of the following sections: * The student-oriented didactics and learning - a crucial objective towards excellence in teaching; * Specific ways of using IT means within the physics or chemistry lessons or order to make the two natural sciences interdisciplinary; * An important point is the use of ICT in the training of teachers, this paper is intended to contribute to the development of independence and team work. This “ICT Revolution” will move the stress from teaching to learning new requirements for the educational system; * Pros and cons of the real and virtual experiments.
