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.
