20 Questions To Guide Inquiry-Based Learning

[Covers the] breakdown of the inquiry process for learning on 21stcenturyhsie.weebly.com (who offer the references that appear below the graphic). Most helpfully, it offers 20 questions that can guide student research at any stage, including:
 

What do I want to know about this topic?
How do I know I know it?
What kinds of resources might help?
How do I know the info is valid?
Does my research raise new questions?
And, in a nod to digital and social media, How do I use media to express my message?
 

...overlaps with ...self-directed learning...

Always useful to find visual learning frameworks that guide inquiry, including self-directed inquiry.    These questions could also be helpful with co-learning, group and individual coaching, and appreciative inquiry. ~  D

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 3 Awesome Apps for Teachers to Create their Own Apps | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"I have been doing a lot of apps review here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but I have never posted about the tools you as teachers and educators can use to create your own apps. Just lower your eyebrows down, you can do it without any coding knowledge. Of course Android and Apple do provide tech savyy guys with the tools necessary to create their own apps but for us who know nothing about SDK and app development skills, platforms like the ones below will serve the purpose. You can create your app in less than a minute and the process is completely free." - from the Source: 

ghbrett's insight:

This article introduces teachers to three applications that will permit them and their students to innovate and tinker with programming to create their own applications.
