Abstract

Abstract: Finding information in a large database can be challenging, especially when students are not familiar with the information domain. Even when information has been retrieved, it often marks the end of the process rather than the beginning of a reflective process that supports learning. The highly original system described here, iFISH, addresses this problem by presenting a playful and explorative environment to students. The aim is to engage students to explore more widely and for longer than when using a conventional system and to reflect on their findings in terns of the inputs they used to obtain them. Preliminary research informing the development of iFISH is described as well as a description of the design prototype.
