Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore how technology was used as a tool for inquiry and civic engagement in an urban middle school in the United States through an interdisciplinary school-wide project. Specific goals of this project were to: (a) implement an interdisciplinary school-wide project with the entire faculty and all the students at the middle school; (b) integrate technology as a tool for inquiry; (c) raise student awareness of children’s issues around the world and in the local community and (d) engage students in higher order thinking and civic learning.
