The present research is a quasi–experimental one with the aim of determining the effect of information and communication technology- based (ICT-based) teaching method in creating sustained learning in experimental science course of third grade secondary school students in Ramsar in 2010. The statistical population included all the third grade secondary school female students about 395 people. Considering the statistical samples available, 50 subjects were selected and divided into experimental and control groups based on random sampling method. To evaluate the comparative effectiveness of ICT-based teaching method and traditional one on students’ sustained learning, a retest was administered in two phases. The first phase was done one month after the initial administration, and the second one was done after three months. To perform ICT-based teaching methods, classes were arranged with two students, each class was given a computer which was connected to the others and to the main computer (that of the teacher) in a network. To control the users and for the purpose of class management," Net School Support" software was used and the subject matters were presented in three different ways: a) electronic content produced by the teacher, b) connection to internet, and c) the use of educational software's. Analysis of the obtained data was done with SPSS software, and the statistical method used t test two independent groups. The results of the research confirmed the effect of ICT-based teaching method in creating sustained learning in experimental sciences course in third grade secondary school students. Therefore, based on tests performed and the obtained results, the rate of sustained learning through ICT- based methods was more than the traditional methods.
