Abstract

Inquiry learning is an effective approach in science education. Complex technology-enhanced learning environments are needed to apply inquiry worldwide to support knowledge gain and improvement of inquiry skills. In our study, we applied an ecology mission in the SCY-Lab learning environment and tested with 54 students (aged 14–18 years) how its rich technology and complexity could be applied in supporting students’ general inquiry knowledge, transformative inquiry skills, and domain-related knowledge. Reflection questions were applied in supporting inquiry. In this article, we show how different skills and knowledge improved and how these are related with each other.
