Abstract

In this presentation, we will describe a project recently funded by the National Science Foundation to develop Virtual Environments for Learning (VELs) for middle school science. VELs are designed to engage students in student-directed inquiry within the context of a complex task. All resources students need to address the task, including virtual scientific tools and scaled versions of information technologies, are contained within the environment. Design guidelines with examples drawn from two VELs will be presented.
