Abstract: Everyone is aware of the important role and the considerable educational interestin the use of information and communication technology in teaching (ICTT). It has a transversal and generalized use in the teaching/learning process. Thus, it was necessary for Morocco to integrate ICT in a pedagogical system and use it as a didactic tool. To carry out this research, we have devised pedagogical scenarios that integrate three digital resources named« RN.resp16 », « RN.dig16 » et « RN.abp16 »the goal of this integration is to evaluate the comprehension and assimilation level of three biological concepts namely respiration, digestion, and intestinal absorption. For data collection, we have utilized a questionnaire, an observation grid, and three tests; each one has been filled out by students by the end of the lesson. The sample of this study would be two classes of middle school, the first and the third year. The main results of the tests in relation to the use of digital resources « RN.resp16 », « RN.dig16 »and« RN.abp16 »have shown that: - The results of our research have shown that 82 % of teachers face problems when explaining certain biological terms such as respiration, digestion and absorption. It also showed that most of these teachers 98 % agreed about the use of ICTT to improve the students’ comprehension and the assimilation of difficult concepts. - The use of ICTT improves students’ behavior vis-à-vis information (attention, calm, participation…) - Decrease in the number of students with very low marks (-8, 15 % resp ; -7, 69 % dig and -9, 81 % abp), and low marks (-15, 63 % resp ; -17, 95 % dig and -29, 08 % absp) - increase in the number of students with average marks (+2, 55 % resp ; +7, 69 % dig and +3, 95 % absp) good marks (+10, 53 % resp ; +12, 82 % dig and +16, 97 % absp) and very good (+11, 65 % resp ; +5, 13 % dig and +16, 05 % absp). These results show the importance of ICTT in improving comprehension and assimilation of
