Nicholas, Howard; Ng, Wan
Journal of Research on Technology in Education, v41 n3 p305-328 Spr 2009
This paper investigates the use of online technologies to extend the learning of a group of junior secondary school students after attending a Sun, Science, and Society camp. The students were of mixed ages and came from metropolitan and rural schools. Their teachers described them as students of high ability or students interested in science who required extension work. These students were engaged in online learning for a period of 6 months after the camp. This paper reports on how they engaged with the extended and open learning supported by online technologies. (Contains 2 tables and 1 footnote.)
