Abstract

This paper analyzes the uses of the Inquiry Page in the National Science Foundation GK-12 Fellowship Program, where scientist-fellows and K-12 teachers partner to integrate the use of computer-based modeling, scientific visualization, and informatics in science and mathematics education. The Inquiry Page is a web-based, knowledge-building tool and community that facilitates and fosters real-world application of inquiry-based learning. The Inquiry Page, then, becomes the nexus between theory and application. This is particularly noted in the sciences, and evident in the context of the GK-12 Fellowship Program.
