|Abstract:||EcoMUVE is a middle school science curriculum in which students explore an immersive virtual ecosystem and learn its causal dynamics through collaborative inquiry activities. Students work in teams of four to construct hypotheses about the relationships in the virtual ecosystem, using as evidence the data and observations collected through their virtual experiences. An analysis of the audio files of four teams demonstrates the ways in which their learning processes are situated within the virtual world.|
