Enhancing Student Learning: A Model for Technology-Enabled Inquiry with the Support of a Virtual Mentorship Program
Li, Qing
Journal of Educational Technology, v6 n1 p41-53 Apr-Jun 2009
Research is starting to show that an inquiry-based approach can positively impact student learning. In this paper, the author propose a model of inquiry-based learning with the support of virtual mentorship. They identify the key players involved, define each of their responsibilities and explain how they work collaboratively to develop curriculum-related programs tailored for individual classrooms. They then describe how this model was implemented in an urban school with the support of advanced technology including videoconferencing. This model provides a new direction for introducing inquiry and integrating advanced technology in schools.
