WESPOT

Working Environment with Social, Personal and Open Technologies for Inquiry Based Learning

The weSPOT project, supported by the European Commission, aims to propagate scientific inquiry as the approach for science learning and teaching in combination with today’s curricula and teaching practices.

weSPOT will create a “Working Environment with Social, Personal and Open Technologies” that supports users (from 12 to 25) to develop their inquiry based learning skills by means of:

* a European reference model for inquiry skills and inquiry workflows,

* a diagnostic instrument for measuring inquiry skills,

* smart support tools for orchestrating inquiry workflows including mobile apps, learning analytics support, and social collaboration on scientific inquiry,

* social media integration and viral marketing of scientific inquiry linked to school legacy systems and an open badge system.

In inquiry-based learning co-learners take the role of explorers and scientists and are motivated by their personal curiosity, guided by self-reflection, and develop knowledge personal and collaborative sense-making and reasoning.

weSPOT will work on a meta-inquiry level in that it will:

1. define a reference model for inquiry-based learning skills,

2. create a diagnostic instrument for measuring inquiry skills, and

3. implement a working environment that allows the easy linking of inquiry activities with school curricula and legacy systems.
