Abstract

This study aims at evaluating the learning outcomes of using computer-mediated learning resources in the learning and teaching of subject knowledge adopting the inquiry approach. The computer-mediated learning resources include an audio-visual database of the nomenclature of a typical Chinese family tree for initial understanding, and an interactive interface for building nomenclature knowledge. A pre-test/post-test evaluation study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of using the computer-mediated learning resources for building knowledge of family trees. Result of the study indicated that the computer-mediated learning resources could assist learners to build knowledge of family trees in the inquiry process. The role of the teacher is to encourage learners to use the learning resources to generate knowledge of their family trees. Copyright © 2005 AACE.
