Abstract

To develop lifelong learning skills, we argue that students need to learn how to learn via inquiry and understand the sociocognitive and metacognitive processes that are involved. We illustrate how software could play a central role in enabling students to develop such expertise. Our hypothesis is that sociocognitive systems, such as those needed for collaborative inquiry and reflective learning, can best be understood as a community of interacting agents, who each have expertise in accomplishing particular high-level goals. We introduce a system, named SCI-WISE, that houses a community of software agents, such as a Planner, a Collaborator, and an Assessor. The agents give strategic advice and guide students as they undertake collaborative research projects and as they reflect on and revise their inquiry processes. Students can easily modify SCI-WISE so that it expresses their own theories of how to do inquiry and how best to coach and scaffold the process. We describe curricular activities in which middle school students use SCI-WISE to engage in ãinquiry about inquiry,ä thereby making inquiry and metacognition topics of investigation. Finally, we discuss how such activities should lead to improvements in their inquiry learning skills as well as to their metacognitive development in general.
