Googleable vs Non-Googleable Questions

Googleable vs Non-Googleable Questions | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it
'Essential questions' are all too often lower order. And not that essential.

 

When we're working with schools on our Design Thinking School programme, one of the easiest ways to explain what we're looking for in the way a project is set, is whether the statement or questions being asked can be Googled easily: is this a Googleable or Not Googleable topic?


Via Dennis T OConnor
Karen Bonanno's insight:

A great exercise is included that will help students to determine the low order and high order questions.

Global Words | We are similar but different | Year 3 | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

This unit develops Year 3 students’ knowledge of children in different geographic places. It begins with learning about similarities and differences between classmates, and then extends awareness to wider contexts: rural and urban Australia, and globally, including Asia. Students learn that some differences which exist between children represent injustice, such as child labour; and that they can make, and persuade others to make ethical decisions as consumers which may help to end child labour.

4 Free Apps That Teach the Basics of Coding - We Are Teachers

4 Free Apps That Teach the Basics of Coding - We Are Teachers | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

"If your class is like mine, the kids are always talking about playing video games! Rather than discouraging that interest, I want to harness it to encourage a higher level of thinking in my class. That is exactly what happens when kids explore coding. I love watching their faces as they try to process that people have to "tell" technology what to do in order for a game to work. 

For many kids, the thought of creating games is even more exciting than playing them. Supporting their interest in gaming is important because the process of coding promotes problem-solving, creativity, collaboration and communication skills. Below I have listed four apps that are great places to start learning about coding with young kids. '

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 1:23 PM

Games don't grow on trees. They have to be created by a human droid that writes thousands and thousands lines of code. Ask your class,"If you want to make video games when you grow up, raise your hand "? I'd bet as you glance around the room, most of your students' hands would be up. Coding is the source that makes it all possible. Introducing coding concepts at an early age also makes it easier to learn-- much like learning a foreign language as a kid is easier than learning as an adult. These apps are free and can provide a platform to at least introduce the beginning concepts of gaming. What should the character be doing, how do I end the story, who saves the princess, etc. One I've used in my classroom is Daisy the Dinosaur.
