Abstract

This paper describes a course designed for K-8 science and mathematics teachers to learn how to teach using an inquiry approach within a technology-rich environment. The World Wide Web and calculator-based data collection devices are the primary sources of inquiry-based technology we will share. We will describe the World Wide Web as a resource for assisting teachers to learn the art of problem posing, to increase their repertoire of problem solving strategies, and to enrich their sources for data collection. The calculator-based data collection devices are useful tools for generating real data from natural phenomena. Elementary and middle level teachers are often unfamiliar with the use of these tools much less their effectiveness as tools for inquiry.
