Project description
IFuCo-project has three main objectives: to build a deeper theoretical understanding of studentsí online inquiry competences, to develop novel instructional model to enhance learning and teaching of future competences in online inquiry in primary education, and to create a long term research network and collaboration between Finland and Chile to meet the global challenges of future education. To reach these goals we will conduct two multidisciplinary studies: a large scale cross-sectional survey for students and teachers and an intervention study to test the efficacy of the developed instructional model for promoting online inquiry competencies. The results on studentsí online inquire competence, teachersí pedagogical practices, and the effectiveness of the instructional model can be used in developing future school curricula and teacher education both in Chile and Finland.
