dc.description.abstract The landscape of education is changing. Rote memorization and retention of facts is no longer useful in this technology-driven era. The British Columbia Ministry of Education recognizes these changes and is developing a new curriculum with an emphasis on more inquiry-based learning. This project examines how to best support inquiry-based learning with technology while teaching science. The specific types of resources examined include digital videos, simulation activities, and teacher guides for utilizing social media and mobile technologies. The resource is a curation of technology resources available for teachers to access and implement in a website format. The website is organized by individual science courses and the current curricular organizers. Currently, the website is available only to teachers in the Delta School District but there are plans to share it globally. en_US
