What do we mean by share your evidence? It is a great question. What happens if something is said that does not fit with our expectations and pre-suppositions?

Sans questions pas de raisonnement. 

D'ailleurs, qu'est ce que la réflexion si ce n'est l'enchaînement de questions?

Et l'intelligence ne serait elle pas simplement l'enchaînement de bonne questions?

Smart Strategies That Help Students Learn How to Learn

Smart Strategies That Help Students Learn How to Learn | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

"What’s the key to effective learning? One intriguing body of research suggests a rather riddle-like answer: It’s not just what you know. It’s what you know about what you know.

To put it in more straightforward terms, anytime a student learns, he or she has to bring in two kinds of prior knowledge: knowledge about the subject at hand (say, mathematics or history) and knowledge about how learning works. Parents and educators are pretty good at imparting the first kind of knowledge. We’re comfortable talking about concrete information: names, dates, numbers, facts. But the guidance we offer on the act of learning itself—the “metacognitive” aspects of learning—is more hit-or-miss, and it shows."

As teachers do we emphasize what we want students to learn, or do we focus on how they should go about learning and the necessary skills? This post focuses on these issues looking at current research. It also provides two sets of questions, one where "Students can assess their own awareness by asking themselves which of the following learning strategies they regularly use..." and the other "a series of proactive questions for teachers to drop into the lesson on a “just-in-time” basis—at the moments when students could use the prompting most."

Another great article by Annie Murphy Paul that provides much food for thought.

A question of study rather than memorising ... how a student of a topic goes about constructing meaning and negotiating understanding.
