The national agenda of making all 10,000 Malaysia’s primary and secondary schools to be Smart Schools by 2010, and being directed to teach Science in English starting in 2003, science teachers all over are facing a monumental task of transforming themselves to realise these agendas. One of the ways to alleviate this problem is to keep abreast of current issues and practices. Thus, new opportunities for professional development ought to be presented in order that the science teachers will be able to optimize usage of the ICT facilities that can help these teachers to contribute to their students’ growth and development. The Internet holds promise to host effective professional development programmes. This paper describes the development of the Science, Mathematics and IT Teacher Resource Centre or SMIT-TReC and how the platform could be used for teachers’ professional development.
