36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Inquiry Learning isn't something I do that often.

Martin Debattista's curator insight, February 28, 2:30 AM

Many of these app are also available for Android - Dropbox, Evernote, Skype, all Google apps obviously etc. 

Mick Huiet's curator insight, March 15, 2:06 AM

This is a very logical organization of apps.  It would be interesting to compares other schools or districts app usage in this manner.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 5, 9:28 PM

This infographic looks at Bloom's Taxonomy (the original version) and the cognitive dimensions and also looks at the Depth of Knowledge which focuses on the "cognitive demands (thinking process) of instruction, tasks, and/or assessments."

In the second visual the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy is in the center and Webb's Depth of Knowledge is the outer circle, providing a visual view of how the two may work together. The infographic is also available to download as a pdf on the website.

Common Core tests use Webb's Depth of Knowledge for the four levels, which are designed to increase rigor. This visual may help increase your understanding on how Webb's DOK moves beyond the verbs of Bloom's (which focus on the level of thinking) beyond the "what" to the "how" of thinking (as seen in the levels of DOK).

Tony Guzman's curator insight, December 9, 3:05 PM

This infographic combines Bloom's Taxonomy to the Depth of Knowledge model. Anyone using this?

A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

Facilitating discussions between students is one of those things that is infinitely easier when you’re teaching in a physical classroom rather than online. When the students are all in one room, discussions happen more naturally. Facilitating the same type of productive, useful discussion when teaching online is more of a challenge.

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"This morning I was thinking about the things that all young people should know how to do regardless of income, geographical location, life goals, etc.  I started a list – see below.  Some have “always” been true – some are unique to this century of learning.  Let me know of any other universal skills you believe young people should know how to do."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 6, 9:48 PM

What do young people need to know? Jackie Gerstein provides a great visual as well as a list of 18 ideas, and each has a link for additional information. She also requests that you send her additional ideas.

After you review the list you might consider how many of these skills are taught in your school, or consider which should be taught in school.
Five of her ideas are below. Click through to the post for the rest.

* How to be a self-directed learner – finding and using resources (both face-to-face and online) to learn and improve personal interests

* How to evaluate websites and online tools for credibility

* How to work in mixed-age groups

* How to code

* How to set and achieve goals

Kimberly House's curator insight, December 7, 12:16 PM

The best question she asks is 'Which are taught in school? Which should be?' These are great questions to explore as a staff in looking at these universal skills.

No sólo se debe enfocar en la cantidad de herramientas tecnológicas o recursos digitales que los docentes de determinado nivel educativo puedan implementar en su práctica pedagógica, sin antes se reflexiona la manera como las tecnologías pueden ser de utilidad para generar aprendizaje de manera individual o colaborativo, todo depende del tipo de estrategia o técnica a ser empleada, si se va a centrar en resolver problemas o desarrollar proyectos. Es parte de lo que propone el modelo TPACK, integración de diversos conocimientos que atiendan de manera transversal la realidad cotidiana de los alumnos, de la sociedad y del mundo.
