|Abstract:||This paper describes experiences of youth and their mentors with authentic problem solving in an Internet-based Shared Environment for Expeditions (iExpeditions). The key questions examined are in what ways and to what extent do youth become engaged in an Expedition. First we examine parents attitudes toward the iExpeditions project, and youths motivation for these online activities. Then we present the design for youths first two-weeks of activities and then the reality of what occurred. After that, we present results of an active group of fourteen youth and analyze why they were more engaged than others were. We describe four cases from this group to further explore this question. Our discussion summarizes youths status of participation as a whole, factors that have affected youths engagement, and what we should do to ensure a good startup for the second round of the project.|
