Apps are dedicated software tools that help students in their inquiry learning tasks and help students to create hypotheses, design experiments, make predictions, formulate interpretations of the data, etc. Other learning apps present students, for example, with a quiz or allow students to view online teacher feedback. The apps can be combined with an Online Lab to create an Inquiry Learning Space (ILS). Learning Analytics apps give teachers an overview of students’ progress in the ILS.
A simple calculator which supports addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square root and exponentiation.
The Geogebra app enables teachers to embed Geogebra materials to their Inquiry Learning Spaces. Links for Geogebra materials can be retrieved from https://www.geogebra.org/
The teacher feedback app enables teachers to provide feedback to their students. This can be achieved by opening the link of the standalone user (available in the members section at the authoring view), proceed to the phase where this app has been located, and enter the comments in box
This app allows the use of Matlab in an Inquiry Learning Space.
In the report tool the learners can create the final report of their work. The learners can include the content of other tools, such as concept maps, hypotheses, questions, observations and data graphs.
This reflection tool gives feedback to students about their use of an Inquiry learning Space (ILS). The tool shows how students have navigated through the inquiry phases over time.
Add a social discussion in your class! SpeakUp allows you to create a chat room, which can be anonymous. Once inside, users can interact in it by writing and rating messages. It is also possible to create multiple-choice questions to poll the audience.
This app allows the teacher to see at a glance the list of files created by the students when they did it. Its aim is to have a real-time overview of the submitted files of each student in the ILS.
The GoModel modelling app allows you to create models and simulations. It can be used in various scientific domains to investigate complex phenomena. GoModel is based on the System Dynamics modelling language with stocks, flows, and feedback loops.
