Doing Science... Anytime, Anyplace: Using Web and Mobile Technologies to Support Nomadic Inquiry between Science Classrooms and Museums

Current national K-12 science education recommendations envision expanding beyond classroom-based scientific inquiry to include out-of-class contexts, such as science museums, nature parks, etc. Such "nomadic inquiry" can help students incorporate a broader range of information and explore scientific questions, but it can also be challenging for students and teachers alike. Christopher Quintana, Associate Professor at the UM School of Education, shares how he and others are exploring how to support such nomadic inquiry with Zydeco, a scaffolded system for science inquiry that combines iPhone/iPod Touch devices with a web-based component. The Zydeco model uses mobile devices to scaffold nomadic inquiry and a web-based component to coordinate the data and observations students gather "on-the-go," thus creating a bridge between classroom and museum contexts.

Part of the UM Museum Studies Program's "Reimagining Engagement" series.
