Inquiry Spaces

An Inquiry Learning Space (ILS) offers science students the opportunity to engage in inquiry learning in a structured and supportive manner. Inquiry spaces are learning environments that can contain labs, learning resources, and apps that support inquiry learning processes. Learning resources are typically texts, videos, and other materials to assist students to grasping a basic understanding of the learning material and to prepare them for investigations or performing experiments. Teachers usually set up an inquiry space for their students. An inquiry space can be shared with other teachers who can repurpose and adapt it to fit their own needs and goals.

How to create an inquiry space? An inquiry space can be created directly from an online lab by using the “create inquiry space” button at the page at Golabz that describes the lab. This button opens the Go-Lab authoring platform ( with an inquiry cycle defined, the lab in the investigation phase, and the other phases ready to be filled with learning resources and apps. An alternative route is to select an existing ILS here and use the button “copy and use this inquiry space” to create a new version of the inquiry space that can be adapted a personalised. You could find more support information here.

Use scenarios to create Inquiry Spaces.
The Go-Lab experts have also prepared a few senarios to help teachers create inquiry spaces based on a specific pedagogical idea. Check out the scenarios

Publishing Inquiry Spaces: Many teachers have been publishing their inquiry spaces in various languages besides English. Thanks to teachers' support, Go-Lab is able to share plenty of educational resources with you. You can also share your own inquiry space by using the "Publish inquiry space" button once your ILS has been completed in the Go-Lab authoring platform.

We would be glad to hear from you if you have any question or feedback.
