Sample text

Each field of inquiry has its own cultural tools and problem solving approaches that are particularly tuned to its subject matter. In Learning Sciences, this insight led to a search for ways of using computers to produce new ways of representing knowledge so that students might learn more easily. Many of the representations took advantage of the graphical, manipulable and dynamic aspects of modern computer technology, resulting in modeling, simulation, and visualization tools appropriate for learning a range of topics in mathematics, science and other subjects.

Probeware, used well, can open avenues of exploration for students as they use it to experiment with phenomena of their choosing. Students using probeware experience less tedium in setting up their experiments and focus more on the research questions and the data. This can focus students on the science meaning behind the data instead of the rote procedures for collecting data in a valid way. Students can also DESIGNING NETWORKED HANDHELD DEVICES 17 collect more observations than manual methods allow, permitting more comparisons and hence, better generalizations.

This sends students a very poor message about the nature of scientific inquiry. Consequently, the ability to collect, graph, and analyze a whole series of experiments in one class period is a radical innovation. By closing the gulf of evaluation, probes support the long-term pedagogical drive towards ‘inquiry-centred’ science classrooms [118]. Teachers can now purchase a variety of kits that enable students to collect data from experiments using a computer or graphing calculator with attached probes or sensors.
