This infographic looks at science,specifically the value of teaching students science from a young age because of the many skills that are developed. These skills include developing questions, collecting evidence, forming decisions, constructing information and communicating. It also discusses the FERA cycle, as in:

* Focus

* Explore

* Reflect

* Apply

The infographic then explores how STEM has the ability to impact her choices throughout her lifetime. This infographic was created by the Smithsonian and provides great information throughout (including a more detailed explanation of the FERA cycle).

5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn: Inquiry Learning | Inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

"Helping students learn how to learn:  That’s what most educators strive for, and that’s the goal of inquiry learning. That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers. "

Project-based learning and inquiry go hand in glove--particularly important for those of us who struggle with traditional forms of academic production and the restrictive formats that promote conformity and compliance over creativity and problem solving.--Lou

 

Excerpt:

".....Inquiry learning is an integrated approach that includes kinds of learning: content, literacy, information literacy, learning how to learn, and social or collaborative skills. Students think about the choices they make throughout the process and the way they feel as they learn. Those observations are as important as the content they learn or the projects they create.

“We want students thinking about their thinking,” said Leslie Maniotes a teacher effectiveness coach in the Denver Public Schools and one of the authors of Guided Inquiry: Learning in the 21st Century. “We want them reflecting on the process and the content.” Inquiry learning works best on longer, deep dive projects when students have to create something of their own out of what they’ve found.

PDF of presentation from Mobile Learning Experience 2012 (http://mobile2012.org)

Presented by Felix Jacomino, Director of Technology at St. Stephen's Episcopal Day School, with Inge Wassmann

 

Description: “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move
with it, and join the dance.” -Alan Watts
Learn what one technology team experienced from initiation to implementation of iPads in a school in the heart of Coconut Grove, Florida.
“Computer teachers” have transformed into “technology integrators” and move from within the lab to the classroom, the campus, and beyond.
Integrators must understand the 4 C’s of 21st century skills and how project based teaching and learning supports it.
• What comes first? Teachers? Students? Devices? Professional
development?
• Obstacles to overcome
• Resistant teachers: “This is just a fad!”
• Hardware/Software logistics

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, August 18, 2013 5:14 AM

"As you begin to imagine these topics in the context of a project, ask yourself, what might you ask of students? How might you push past rote learning into investigation, analysis, and synthesis? Consider how you can engage critical thinking in a project by asking students to:

  • Compare and contrast
  • Predict
  • Make a well-founded judgment or informed decision
  • Understand causal relationships (cause and effect)
  • Determine how parts relate to the whole (systems)
  • Identify patterns or trends
  • Examine perspectives and alternate points of view
  • Extrapolate to create something new
  • Evaluate reliability of sources"

The 21st Century Principal: Establishing a PBL-Friendly Culture in Your Classroom, School or District

The 21st Century Principal: Establishing a PBL-Friendly Culture in Your Classroom, School or District | Inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

“PBL (Project Based Learning) offers a unique opportunity for teachers and students to join together in the inquiry process.” Thom Markham, Project Based Learning: Design and Coaching Guide

 

With the advent of Common Core Standards, there's a great deal of talk from school districts about moving to Project Based Learning because the kinds of learning asked for in those standards can better be approached through a PBL model. 

 

 I have heard several districts speak about this change in instructional approach as if it were some kind of basic cosmetic change that could make to their schools. Many still view PBL as instructional strategy that can be added or bolted into their existing schools and classroom systems. Unfortunately, Project Based learning won’t work that way. It can’t be bolted on top of the existing classroom practice.

 

To be successful with PBL requires a fundamental change in teaching philosophy for everyone, from the teacher in the classroom to the school board member.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Inquiry based learning | 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)."

Twelve Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking | The Creativity Post

Twelve Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking | The Creativity Post | Inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

Yes - each one of us is a special kind of artist. Michael Michalko writes about believing in yourself and not letting someone else talk you into believing you are not creative. 

 

This article explains what happens in school which from the very beginning kills creativity. Children are supposed to be quiet, obey the teacher expert, and follow rules that dampen any creative spirit. Just imagine Mozart at 6 sitting in a first grade classroom and told to stop making noise. We would never have his music. Michalko lists 12 things about creativity that build creativity in each of us.

 

I come from a family of artists. My mother never let me color in a coloring book. There were no lines for me to color in. She painted or drew every day. My daughter is an artist and feels the importance of putting that idea she has to the canvas or computer. It's there. You cannot deny it. If you do, you squash it. I love to write. I want to write every day. 

 

I never knew I could write because I was told to write a specific way that didn't make sense to me. As soon as I left school, I did it my way. I'm never going to stop. I write poems, post to my blog, curate articles, write a column. It is creative and that's who I am. 

 

Who are you? How are you creative?
