The Leonardo Project

NSF Awards: 1020229

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

The Leonardo Project is designing, developing and investigating an intelligent cyberlearning system for interactive scientific modeling in elementary science education. Students in Grades 4 and 5 are using Leonardo’s intelligent virtual science notebooks to create and experiment with interactive models of science phenomena. As students design, test, and share their models, Leonardo’s intelligent virtual assistants engage them in meaning-making exchanges in which students interactively devise explanations and make predictions. With a curricular focus on the physical sciences, Leonardo scaffolds students’ modeling experiences with advice and explanations that are tailored to individual problem-solving episodes.
