Development and Evaluation of An Investigative Learning Support Program for Elementary School Students to Search and Understand Subjects in Social Studies from Multiple Dimensions
Keywords:investigative learning, Japan
This study developed an investigative learning support program that had two steps with multiple features including pillars of investigation for searching and grasping subjects of learning from multiple dimensions and then evaluated the goal achievement of the program. We examined literature and included reference materials and image maps, both with and without clues, and incorporated the tasks of revising or adding pillars of investigation in the program. Although there are some issues such as the consideration of instructions and prior support methods for students who have little experience in investigative learning, some students met the achievement goals of the program.
