Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to present how the technology-infused learning environment (TILE) research team in Taiwan developed and evaluated innovative learning environments for science education. The three environments presented in this chapter cover important scientific topics and involve real-life issues such as the seasons, air pollution, and water reservoirs. These learning environments aim at facilitating students’ conceptual understanding, cultivating their inquiry abilities, and contributing to the goal of developing independent learners. To achieve these goals, the features of these environments include: (1) helping students visualize scientific concepts and principles to enhance their conceptual understanding; (2) providing multiple linked representations and web-based sharing tools to promote sharing and communication; and (3) integrating innovative and advanced technologies that enable teachers to utilize digital resources and support students in conducting authentic scientific investigations. In the past 5 years, multiple sources of data were collected to evaluate the effectiveness of these environments, and the results suggest that by providing well-designed features, TILEs could support students’ engagement in authentic inquiry and demonstration of desirable learning practices.
