It just got easier to learn the ABCs of working with PDAs, CBLs, GPS systems, and other technology-based inquiry tools. The activities in this practical compendium—a collection of 27 articles published in Science Scope, NSTA’s member journal for middle school teachers—will show you how.

Technology-Based Inquiry covers graphing calculators, calculator-based labs (CBLs), personal digital assistants (PDAs), global positioning systems (GPS), graphical information systems (GIS), and other emerging technologies. Each chapter provides a list of online resources, including where to purchase the devices discussed in the book, where to download programs (often at no cost), and where students can go to conduct further research.

A bonus feature: Editor Edwin Christmann has developed a website with updated chapter reviews, outlines, sample test questions, and activities. It will even include a PowerPoint presentation for teaching the text.

But don’t worry—you don’t need a Ph.D. in IT to use this clearly written collection. Thanks to its non-threatening, practical approach, Technology-Based Inquiry is perfect for use as a supplement for classroom science teachers, in science-teaching methods courses, or as an educational reference in virtually any library.
