Richard Paul: Socratic Questioning Series [Part 1] - YouTube

Discourse on critical thinking for teachers and educators in all grade levels and in all societies. This channel contains video footage, interviews and clips...


Dennis T OConnor's insight:

One of my Critical Thinking Gurus is Richard Paul.  I met him in a bar in Arizona a few years before I left the classroom to teach online. We had one of the great discussions of my life. His thinking and teaching transformed my questioning style when I was a classroom teacher and seeped into my DNA when I went into online work.  Here is a series of videos available on YouTube that I would turn to if I were teaching a class devoted solely to Critical Thinking.

'Asking questions that takes thinking apart'! This is very useful as a reflection tool. I appreciate highly the connection made by Richard Paul between thinking and content.

A Simple Strategy for Teaching Students How to Think We believe that knowing how to ask questions is a foundational skill that is essential for all learning.

 

Students who ask questions, who ask good questions, and who can set and follow a line of inquiry will succeed at a far higher rate than those who either do not know how to formulate their own questions or simply fail to regularly generate their own questions.

The 6 types of Questions your Students Need to Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

 

"Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions."

TEDxSomerville - Dan Rothstein: Did Socrates Get it Wrong?

Published on May 19, 2012 by TEDxTalks


Where did you learn to ask questions? Did you know the skill of asking questions is not used, shared and definitely not taught very well? Even worse, educators are given little training and often indirectly discouraged from spending time on teaching the skill. There's good news with a deceptively simple solution to the problem. Its called the Question Formulation Technique™ and you have a chance to learn and experience it!

 

Speaker Dan Rothstein is co-director of the Right Question Institute which had its first offices in Somerville. Dan and co-author, Luz Santana, wrote the book Make Just One Change: Teach Students to Ask Their Own Questions published by Harvard Education Press.

How to Develop Effective Discussion Questions

How to Develop Effective Discussion Questions | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"A distinguishing feature of online education verses the face-to-face environment are class discussions. Face-to-face discussions are typically spontaneous interplay with the minority of students being actively involved, haphazard in their preparation, with the appearance of mostly the verbal-oriented and self-confident members of a class. Discussions are often a presentation technique to avoid lecture lethargy or sleepiness, and are not considered a prime facilitator of the education process

 

In an asynchronous online environment, discussion questions are planned and students and faculty respond with considered answers. Faculty carefully craft questions to fit content and student needs. Respondents, both students and faculty, can take the time to carefully research and develop their responses. Therefore, the achieved learning from online discussions is potentially much greater than in a face-to-face environment."

 

This is a three part series that will help any online practicioner to better understand the complexities of writing discussion prompts and facilitating threaded discussion.  This is a university level research effort with a solid bibliography.  Well worth reading! ~ Dennis T. O'Connor
