Collaboration in communities of inquirers: an example from a geography field trip.
In: 9th International Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Conference, 04-08 July 2011, Hong Kong.
Technology supported inquiry learning is a situation rich with possibilities for collaboration and the resultant collaborative learning which may ensue. However the complex settings in which it takes place give researchers a challenge in selecting the appropriate analytic lens. This paper is based on the work of the Personal Inquiry project (PI) which is exploring inquiry learning conducted by students aged 12-15 years across formal and informal settings, and the technology toolkit (nQuire) we have designed to orchestrate the inquiry process. We draw on a case study of geographical inquiry incorporating a field trip and describe the possibilities for collaboration which resulted in this setting. We use a range of data collected before, during and after the field trip to examine the learning behaviours which occurred. We found shifts in behaviour during the field trip, identified different working patterns enabled by the toolkit and identified future areas for research.
