1995-present, Inquiry-based learning

This research has contributed to the development of theory for inquiry-based learning. It draws from John Dewey’s theory of inquiry and the broader pragmatist tradition, including the work of Jane Addams, William James, Ella Flagg Young, and others, and on studies situated in community action.

It is represented in books, and in papers such as “The disappearance of technology: Toward an ecological model of literacy,” “Credibility of the web: Why we need dialectical reading,” “Literacy technologies: What stance should we take?,” “How media ecologies can address diverse student needs.”
