dc.description.abstractThe eduLab-vl project is initiated by four secondary schools in Singapore (Beatty Secondary, Chung Cheng High, Regent Secondary and Yishun Town Secondary). It is an educational research project seeking to combine the technology of virtual laboratories (vi) and the pedagogy of Knowledge Building (KB) together. The objectives of the project are to investigate the effects ofvl and KB on students' planning skills of scientific investigation. Two classes (one treatment class and one control class) with equivalent standard and background were selected from each participating school. Students from the treatment class were enculturated in the use of virtual laboratory and knowledge building for three months. The computer-based Knowledge Forum (KF) was used as a collaborative workspace, which allowed students to contribute theories, build on new ideas and provide evidence to support their hypothesis. We observed that the students' knowledge in science was advanced and the planning of scientific investigation was improved during the KB enculturation. Content analysis on students' discussions postings was performed. Pre-tests and posttests were conducted · with the same rubric. Surveys on self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL) were conducted. The analysis of the results illustrated that the diversity of ideas, the competencies in planning of scientific investigation, and the CoL of the treatment classes were significantly improved and were better than the control classes.en_US
