Abstract

This paper proposes curation as an inquiry method for young learners who are learning history using web-based heritage resources and other online content. It introduces the QrAte tool, similar to many online social curation tools, but with added functionality for creating and supporting historical inquiry tasks. QrAte assists a learner in identifying key concepts related to an inquiry process, in asking inquiry questions and in locating and analyzing data sources, then extracting relevant information. QrAte helps the user to organize and visualize collected data and to curate an output that provides an answer to the question of the inquiry. The curated stories can be shared, whereby the content can be a 'seed' for future learners to use in their own inquiry and curation processes.
