Krajcik, Joseph; Marx, Ron; Blumenfeld, Phyllis; Soloway, Elliot; Fishman, Barry
Inquiry is an essential component of science. Furthermore, what students learn and how they engage in inquiry supported by technology is important to understand in order to promote science education reform. This paper presents an overview of work in curriculum and technology development and professional development. Collaboration with the Detroit Urban Systemic Program is described, and focus is placed on a study of the performance of urban students on pre- and post-tests in four different inquiry-based and technology-rich curriculum units.
