What Questions Did You Ask Today?

"The average five-year-old asks 65 questions per day, most of them starting with "why." The average 44-year-old manager only asks six questions per day; most of them starting with "when," "where," or "how much."

The number of questions we ask per day doesn't increase until retirement. Why retirement? Because that's when we start asking, "Where are my keys?" and "Why did I walk into this room?" 

In this animated three-minute video, Chic Thompson the author of What a Great Idea!, will help you "jump start" your question asking ability."

I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.

Many people learn one tool and then move on to others. I like to analyze each and use the best features of that particular 2.0 project. I use twitter as a push tool to share info for the most part.

Tracee Orman's curator insight, May 13, 2013 6:03 PM

Great article explaining how the brain interprets text in two different formats (on screen vs. on paper). I knew there had to be a reason why reading from a book has advantages over a screen and this article offers great explanations. In my own classroom research, those who read the paper copy of books do far better on assessments than those who read the digitial copies. Also, students score better on paper tests/quizzes than on online assessments. Knowing how long the quiz or test is and being able to look back or look forward on assignments and in books really is important.
