Abstract:
There are many approaches to fostering authentic inquiry in educational settings and communities, but many suffer from the inconsistency inherent in top-down approaches. What happens when users are not merely recipients of a design for inquiry, but take an active role in creating that design? This presentation examines three examples: (1) Chickscope, a K-12 science education project, (2) Paseo Boricua, a community in Chicago, and (3) Ethnography of the University, a project in which undergraduates research the lived experiences within the university.
