Learning with collaborative inquiry: A science learning environment for secondary school students
Issue Date: 
Paper presented at the 10th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Madison, USA, 15 – 19 June 2013
The paper presents a study of science instruction using collaborative inquiry with
the CSI (Collaborative Science Inquiry) system which combines multiple learning design
features with CSCL design elements. The study reported here explores the educational value
of the system on students’ conceptual understanding, performance on inquiry phases and
collaborative work. Promising results have been received from the comparison of pre-test and
post-test achievements, the examination of artefacts, peer discussions, and interview
transcripts. The results indicate that the collaborative inquiry facilitated by the CSI system can
engage students in activities and promote their conceptual understanding in a progressive way.
