A Case for Examining Pre-Service Teacher Preparation for Inquiry Teaching Science with Technology
Shively, Chris T.; Yerrick, Randy
Research in Learning Technology, v22 2014
Inquiry has been the framework for guiding reform-based science instruction. All too often, the role of technology is treated tacitly without contributions to this framework. This case study examines a collection of pre-service teachers enrolling in two educational technology courses and the role these experiences play in promoting inquiry teaching. Interviews, field notes, surveys, reflective digital narratives and student-generated exhibits served as the data informing the analysis of inquiry experiences which shaped the enacted lessons of science teachers. Implications for research and practices are discussed.
