This study aimed to investigate the impact of using google applications as a vehicle to increase sixth grade students’ scientific concepts acquisition and their attitudes toward the acceptance of technology in tulkarm governmental schools. The study employed the quasi-experimental design with two groups; experimental and control groups. The sample size of the study is 140 students; 84 females (42 control, and 42 experimental), and 56 males (28 control, and 28 experimental). The control group taught using the regular method, and the experimental group taught using google apps. The researcher constructed the following tools: website, achievement test, and attitudes scale. The researcher used ANCOVA test, and Spearman correlation coefficient to analyze data. The results revealed that there were no statistically significant differences at (α≤0.05) level between the mean scores of the experimental group, and the control group in achievement test. According to the results, the researcher recommended the ministry of education to adopt google apps for one year at least to show more accurate results, in addition to develop the infrastructure of schools in technology issues. Finally, the researcher recommended the ministry to create culture of research between students and school staff. Tags: Google Apps for education, Attitudes, e-Learning, School, Technology.
