Abstract

In this study we followed a narrative approach to investigate the function that digital, interactive tools can fulfill in inquiry teaching and learning. Such a narrative can be conceived as 'talking through' a lesson in which a teacher supports inquiry with technology. By subsequently coding these narratives we studied the functions that tools can fulfill related to certain learning activities and instructional settings. We have created a template by distilling the coded functions of these tools. This template can be used to find alternative functions for tools, alternative learning activities to support with a tool, and alternative instructional settings for use of the tool as educational support.
