Middle-School Students' Reasoning about Alternative Hypotheses in a Scaffolded, Software-Based Inquiry Investigation
Cognition and Instruction Vol. 27, No. 4 (2009) pp. 277–311
The examination of alternative hypotheses can initiate students into scientific practices and equip them with scientific literacy skills that will help them participate in ongoing debates involving complex socio-scientific problems. Hypothesis...
Understanding reflection-in-action: An investigation into middle-school students' reflective inquiry practices in science and the role that software scaffolding can play
Understanding reflection@-in@-action: An investigation into middle@-school students' reflective inquiry practices in science and the role that software scaffolding can play (2004) pp. 1–285
Recent calls to reform science education propose changes in the content and structure of the learning of science. At the classroom level, these calls emphasize investigations that are inquiry-based and parallel the nature of scientific work....
An Inquiry-Based Augmented Reality Mobile Learning Approach to Fostering Primary School Students' Historical Reasoning in Non-Formal Settings
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 26, No. 1 (2018) pp. 22–41
This study investigated the contribution of a location-based augmented reality (AR) inquiry-learning environment in developing 3rd grade students' historical empathy and conceptual understanding. Historical empathy is an important element of...
Sixth Graders' Co-Construction of Explanations of a Disturbance in an Ecosystem: Exploring Relationships between Grouping, Reflective Scaffolding, and Evidence-Based Explanations
International Journal of Science Education Vol. 33, No. 18 (2011) pp. 2489–2525
We report on a study investigating the relationship between cognitive ability grouping, reflective inquiry scaffolding, and students' collaborative explanations of an ecosystem disturbance which took place when a number of flamingo birds died in a...
Collecting Ecologically Valid Data in Location-Aware Augmented Reality Settings: A Comparison of Three Data Collection Techniques
International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning Vol. 11, No. 2 (April 2019) pp. 78–95
Collecting data in a mobile augmented reality (AR) settings is challenging, as participants are dispersed in the physical space and move often; therefore, it is imperative that new techniques are investigated to facilitate richer and more...

Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 13, No. 3 (2004) pp. 337–386
The notion of scaffolding learners to help them succeed in solving problems otherwise too difficult for them is an important idea that has extended into the design of scaffolded software tools for learners. However, although there is a growing body...
