Abstract

This paper examines the perceptions held by 120 students and seven teachers of the learning environment in their inquiry‐based computer classrooms. The subjects responded to a classroom environment instrument before and after using a computerized database which has the potential for promoting inquiry skills. Generally, there was an increase in student‐perceived investigation and open‐endedness. Although teachers’ and students’ perceptions showed a similar trend, teachers’ perceptions generally were more positive than those of the students.
