In this post I would like to share the experiences I had with my students with who I conducted the Eratosthenes experiment. During the implementation of this experiment I ran guidelines of Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) which are available on the ISE portal. To carry out this experiment students were using tablets.
Inquiry based learning can be applied to a range of subjects which are being taught in schools, but it is also possible to use this method of teaching for project-oriented topics that are interdisciplinary.
An example of that is the Eratosthenes experiment for which there are several scenarios designed for Inquiry Based Learning on the ISE portal. The scenarios are divided into five activities underlying the research learning (ask, create hypotheses, planning and research, analysis and interpretation, conclusions and evaluation).
