App to support fieldwork inquiry

  1. 1. an app to supportinquiryinvestigation
  2. 2. current problemsMobile Devices are not used tomaximise its potential forcollaboration between students
  3. 3. current problemsMobile Devices are not used tomaximise its potential forcollaboration between students Current use of mobile devices does not support inquiry learning
  4. 4. current problemsMobile Devices are not used tomaximise its potential forcollaboration between students Current use of mobile devices does not support inquiry learning Consolidating data from fieldwork for discussion in class is cumbersome.
  5. 5. eg of current use of mobile devicesin the field S N Q S AN App pushes questions forstudents to answer at specific locations to the cloud
  6. 6. eg of current use of mobile devicesin the field FO S N IN Q S AN App pushes questions for App pushes information aboutstudents to answer at specific specific locations to students locations to the cloud
  7. 7. where is the learningif students are not curious and want to learn?
  8. 8. inquiry fieldwork process ? ? Get students curiousand excited about something and want to investigate it
  9. 9. inquiry fieldwork process A-> B? ? ? Get students curiousand excited about something Formulate Hypothesis and want to investigate it
  10. 10. inquiry fieldwork process A-> B? ? ? Get students curiousand excited about something Formulate Hypothesis and want to investigate it Students do fieldwork to gather data to test hypothesis
  11. 11. inquiry fieldwork process A-> B? ? ? Get students curiousand excited about something Formulate Hypothesis and want to investigate it Consolidate data, make sense of it, see if hypothesis stands, Students do fieldwork to gather acquire understanding. data to test hypothesis
  12. 12. currentproblemswith the process
  13. 13. inquiry fieldwork process A-> B? ? ? Get students curiousand excited about something Formulate Hypothesis and want to investigate it Consolidate data, make sense of it, see if hypothesis stands, Students do fieldwork to gather acquire understanding. data to test hypothesis
  14. 14. inquiry fieldwork process A-> B? ? ? Get students curiousand excited about something Formulate Hypothesis and want to investigate it Consolidate data, make sense of it, see if hypothesis stands, Students do fieldwork to gather acquire understanding. data to test hypothesis
  15. 15. inquiry fieldwork process Data are recorded on paper. Consolidating takes time. A-> B? ? ? Difficult to categorise and classify data in class discussion to help students make sense of it and to see if hypothesis stands. Get students curiousand excited about something >> Easy to see data across space or time to drawFormulate Hypothesis conclusions more easily and want to investigate it >> Faster way of consolidating data >> Easy to categorise and classify data Consolidate data, make sense of it, see if hypothesis stands, Students do fieldwork to gather acquire understanding. data to test hypothesis
  16. 16. inquiry fieldwork process A-> B? ? ? Get students curiousand excited about something Formulate Hypothesis and want to investigate it Consolidate data, make sense of it, see if hypothesis stands, Students do fieldwork to gather acquire understanding. data to test hypothesis
  17. 17. inquiry fieldwork process A-> B? ? ? Manpower constraints to take students out to the field. >> Students able to research on their own and yet access to what teacher ask Get students curiousand excitedto look somethingwhat tips them about out for or Formulate Hypothesis and want to investigatefor them. classmates have it Consolidate data, make sense of it, see if hypothesis stands, Students do fieldwork to gather acquire understanding. data to test hypothesis
  18. 18. key requirement Facilitate data consolidation and discussion in post-fieldwork phaseother requirements Help students to do fieldwork independently
  19. 19. how theappcomes in
  20. 20. in the field
  21. 21. in the fieldField Site A
  22. 22. in the field I don’t quite get what I’m seeing. Let me checkField Site A
  23. 23. Teacher: Breakwater Student John: This was submerged in high tide!Field Site A
  24. 24. Teacher: BreakwaterNow I have a better idea Student John: This was submerged in high tide! Field Site A
  25. 25. >> Students able to research on theirown and yet access to what teacher ask them to look out for or what tips classmates have for them. Teacher: Breakwater Now I have a better idea Student John: This was submerged in high tide! Field Site A
