|Abstract:||Inquiry-based instruction is a focal point of recent research and Next Generation Science Standards, but students have difficulty connecting evidence to claims, especially when data are highly variable. We explore a blended curriculum that supports inquiry activities in a virtual world, followed by inquiry activities in the real world with first-hand collection of authentic, variable data supported by mobile devices. This study characterizes how students use and interpret data across these two instructional contexts.|
