Ideally, students would perform at least one inquiry project each semester. Inquiry projects demand new teaching methods and technology offers promising solutions. Supporting 15 small groups engaging in a new practice rather than one larger group following established routines means that teachers need to develop new techniques to keep track of progress and responding to questions. Learning environments can amplify the effectiveness of teachers by handling routine requests as well as offering new representations, models, collaborative activities, complex resources, and learner supports.
Investigation projects such as “Thermal Equilibrium” (D. Clark, chap. 8, this volume) emphasize diagnosing problems, researching conjectures, planning investigations, constructing models, and forming arguments. Ideally, students would perform at least one inquiry project each semester. Inquiry projects demand new teaching methods and technology offers promising solutions. Supporting 15 small groups engaging in a new practice rather than one larger group following established routines means that teachers need to develop new techniques to keep track of progress and responding to questions.
Such instruction helps students engage in the process of reconceptualizing ideas, an activity that leads to lifelong learning. Following the principles, designers provide curricular supports, social supports, and technological supports to ensure that the curriculum is maximally successful in promoting knowledge integration. KIE AND BEYOND When the partnership created the KIE, the National Science Founda- tion proposal called for converting Internet resources into knowledge integration partners for science learning.
