I've just finished presenting the interim results of my e-fellows research at the Ulearn conference in Christchurch. I have updated my website Inquiring Mind with my latest findings. I will be adding to this as I work on my research report.

Here are some useful sites and references from my presentation:
Galileo site:
Opoutere Schools' KnowledgeNet (and the case study groups' work): (View the work in the public pages or use the login and password: exgroup2 to view all the pages)
Herron's 4 levels of inquiry:
Galileo's inquiry rubric

References for the quotes I used (I thoroughly recommend the first book):
