Abstract

This is the final version of the 'Enhancing science appeal in learning through argumentative interaction' (ESCALATE) project white book. The pedagogical idea brought forward in the ESCALATE project was to bring technology to the service of education so to provide environments that make the integration between argumentative and enquiry-based strategies possible. ESCALATE made use of specific learning tools in order to investigate the potential of introduction of new methods in education.

The document begins with general information on the project's objectives and tools and then goes into great detail about the experiments conducted in various countries. Conclusions follow, focusing on problems occurred during the project's implementation and potential for future use in each case. Finally, the document concludes with general reflections and recommendations.
