Inquiry-Based Learning

Follow two teachers as they explore and learn about Inquiry-Based Learning
We are working on this project through the support of the TEACHER LEARNING and LEADERSHIP PROGRAM (TLLP) - Ontario Ministry of Education. Our project Uncovering Content-Integrating Critical Thinking into Social Studies for 21st Century Learners was developed because as teachers we felt we needed to enhance our knowledge of using critical thinking questions and inquiry-based learning in order for our students to become actively engaged in their learning.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 2, 2013 8:03 PM

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).

I really like this! It made me think again that we may be spoon feeding our students and limiting their thinking. I would love to hear how teachers are actually doing this in their classrooms.
Hessa Alsuhail's comment, November 12, 2012 11:41 AM
Yes, we shouldn’t under estimate how well our students can think. Actually when we let them ask, we are letting their inner voices out!
This could help teachers think about their role in the classroom and in the lives of their students. Being a facilitator in young children’s classroom could make a huge difference in their journey of learning. It helps them pursue that journey using their created learning map guided by their inner motivation.

Intro to Inquiry Learning | YouthLearn

Inquiry-based learning is not a new technique—in fact, it goes back to education philosopher John Dewey—but it does stand in contrast to the more structured, curriculum-centered framework of today's schools.
