Inquiry Pedagogy and Smartphones: Enabling a Change in School Culture
Norris, Cathleen A.; Soloway, Elliot; Tan, Chun Ming; Looi, Chee-Kit
Educational Technology, v53 n4 p33-40 Jul-Aug 2013
In this project report, the authors describe the five transformations that a primary school in Singapore underwent as it adopted an inquiry pedagogy and curriculum along with a 1:1 deployment of smartphones. Based on the students' end-of-year test scores, not only did the students learn the prescribed content, but also they developed key 21st century skills. Taken together, the transformations have engendered a cultural change at Nan Chiau Primary School. (Contains 6 figures and 1 footnote.)
