Dynamic representations (e.g., dynamic geometry software GeoGebra for mathematics learning and PhET simulations for science learning) offer excellent opportunities for students to conduct investigations and to formulate explanations for the visualized phenomena. In order for this to be effective, students need guidance, for example, for planning their investigations and reflecting on their actions. One way to support students is by prompting them by using questions that are adapted to the students’ current situation. This chapter focuses on how pre-service teachers provide guidance for students through questioning and by both structuring and problematizing student learning. Data comes from science lessons taught by pre-service primary school teachers and mathematics lessons taught by pre-service subject teachers. The analysis focused on the different question types the pre-service teachers used as well as how their questioning was adapted to students’ situation. The results show how the pre-service teachers used questions both to structure student thinking and to problematize their answers and reasoning. Questioning was not always adapted to the students’ needs. We propose that adapting teacher questioning to student thinking requires balancing between structuring and problematizing and high level of interpretation from the teacher. Teachers’ skills for interpretation are still beyond the skills of software. Implications for teaching with dynamic representations are discussed. ...

The connection between forms of guidance for inquiry-based learning and the communicative approaches applied : a case study in the context of pre-service teachers Lehtinen, Antti; Lehesvuori, Sami; Viiri, Jouni (Springer Netherlands, 2019)Recent research has argued that inquiry-based science learning should be guided by providing the learners with support. The research on guidance for inquiry-based learning has concentrated on how providing guidance affects ...
Student teachers’ types of probing questions in inquiry-based mathematics teaching with and without GeoGebra Hähkiöniemi, Markus (Taylor & Francis, 2017)Previous studies have produced several typologies of teacher questions in mathematics. Probing questions that ask students to explain are often included in the types of questions. However, only rare studies have created ...
Pre-service teachers and guided inquiry-based science teaching with simulations Lehtinen, Antti (University of Jyväskylä, 2017)The aim of this dissertation was explore the beliefs and practices of pre-service primary teachers on using simulations as a part of guided inquiry-based lessons. Even though research has shown that using simulations ...
Comparing Guidance via Implicit and Explicit Model Progressions in a Collaborative Inquiry-Based Learning Environment with Different-Aged Learners Lehtinen, Antti; Nieminen, Pasi; Pehkonen, Salla; Hähkiöniemi, Markus (MDPI AG, 2022)There is a need for research on the effect of different types of model progressions and learner age on learning and engagement in inquiry-based science settings. This study builds on the Scientific Discovery as Dual Search ...
Enriching primary student teachers’ conceptions about science teaching: Towards dialogic inquiry-based teaching Lehesvuori, Sami; Ratinen, Ilkka; Kulhomäki, Otto; Lappi, Jousia; Viiri, Jouni (Universitetet i Oslo & Umeå universitet, 2011)Inquiry-based teaching has been at the heart of science education since it was first outlined in national standards over a decade ago. The general idea behind the inquiry guidelines is that pupils would adopt ways of ...
