36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | IPAD Apps for education | 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)."

Sam Burden's curator insight, June 16, 2014 4:58 AM

EarthViewer is a free iPad application which provides its participants with an inside look at implications and data reflecting climate change and to follow the continental drift throughout a 540 million year period. I was amazed by its multi-functional  uses and how inviting the resource was as I learnt useful information about Ancient Earth and could travel through different eras and time periods.

 

Students in Year's 7 and 8 can "Investigate the ways in which products, services and environments evolve globally"(ACTDEK030) (ACARA, 2014) as they use this app to expand their views of the environment, in particular the shifting of continents, with data on atmospheric composition, temperature, biodiversity, day length, and solar luminosity reflecting  our dynamic planet being available .
