Abstract

A prototype Web-based environment, called the Web of Inquiry, was developed that built on previous work in science learning and technology. This new system was designed to meet constructivist-learning principles, support self-reflection, and meet specific interaction goals within the classroom environment. The system was tested it in fifth, sixth, and seventh grade (ages 10-13) classrooms. Mixed methods results suggest that the system met many of the initial design goals and also identified areas that could be improved in future iterations of the system.
