Publication: VSMM 2003 Conference Proceeding

The field is a simulated virtual enviroment designed to help elementary school students learn the basic skills of observational science in the context of mathematics and science.

Over the last four years, we have iteratively developed technical aids for navigation and data collection based on observations we have conducted in an elementary school.

This paper discusses the problems students encountered in the Field, the augmenting tools developed to address the issues, and theirs impacts to students’ behavior.
