Abstract:In this paper we describe SINQ, a prototype mobile social media (SM) application that utilizes social participation to guide learners through an everyday Scientific INQuiry process. The paper outlines the motivation for SINQ based on learning theories of scientific inquiry, the challenges associated with scientific inquiry learning within everyday settings, the design of SINQ to promote science inquiry, and the implications for design and learning with social media that we learned from this development experience.
