IScience: A computer-supported collaborative inquiry learning project for science students in secondary and tertiary science education is a 2014 journal article written in English by Anderson K., Kennedy-Clark S. and published in International Journal of Innovation in Science and Mathematics Education.
Pre-service teachers come to teacher education programs with a range of experiences and understandings about inquiry in Science. The IScience project aims to assist pre-service teachers to develop an understanding of the issues and skills required to guide students through an open-inquiry process. In addition, the project provides opportunities for pre-service teachers at the beginning of their teacher training to develop their skills in mentoring high school science students in an open-ended inquiry process. In this study, wikis were used to support the interactions among the pre-service teachers and school students, who were from geographically diverse locations to collaborate on the open-inquiry project. A mixed-method approach to the data collection was used. Data sources included surveys, reflective journals, and pre-and post-tests. The impact of the project on the pre-service teachers' understanding of how to teach science by inquiry is discussed in this paper. The results of the study indicate the pre-service teachers felt more confident in their understandings of scientific inquiry and their ability to teach inquiry.
