Integrating Palm Technology Into Wise Inquiry Curriculum: Two School District Partnerships
Slotta, J. D., Clark, D., & Cheng, B. H. (2002). Integrating Palm Technology into WISE Inquiry Curriculum: Two School District Partnerships. In Proceedings of CSCL
We describe a program of research to explore how Palm Pilot technology can facilitate inquiry activities in K-12 science and mathematics curriculum. This research was conducted within the context of the Web-based Inquiry Science Environment (WISE) project, which addresses fundamental questions concerning the role of inquiry and technology in science education. Working in close collaboration with two large school districts, we developed new approaches for integrating the Palm applications into existing WISE curriculum. We developed a sophisticated and generalized solution to enable hand held survey and observation forms that can be uploaded into a class data set.
