Personal Inquiry: lessons learned

By Stamatina Anastopoulou, Mike Sharples, Michael Wright, Shaaron Ainsworth, Charles Crook, Bronya Norton and Claire O'Malley

Abstract

The paper describes a school trial carried out to support inquiry learning between formal and informal settings supported by personal mobile technology. The aim of the school trial was to explore how a first version of the PI Toolkit facilitates secondary school students in performing a personally relevant scientific inquiry both in a science classroom as well as at home. An analysis of classroom video and interviews has resulted in a set of incidents from which we have derived design guidelines and challenges for implementing technology-supported inquiry learning where personal technology is used and within which personally relevant investigations are conducted by students
