Abstract :
[en] The sciPADS project is conducting empirical research with children age 8-12 of Luxembourgish elementary schools using a tablet-cloud system. The study centres on students’ processes mediated by ipads such as inquiry-based learning and multimodal creations. The cloud system enables students, teachers, and researchers to share generated content across multiple platforms and across the school borders. Our data collection, spanning a two-year learning cycle, comprises the students’ multimodal creations and related commentary; recordings of classroom activities performed with Ipads; data from questionnaires, polls and online surveys; audio-visual recordings of recall-interviews with the students and of regular project meetings with teachers. The presentation's driving question concerns the methodological framework for conducting this investigation, i.e., gather a broad spread of data about the project foci, but also gain some profound insights on the learning process of the students.
