The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking | Knowledge Engineering | Scoop.it

"Big idea: Teaching kids to ask smart questions on their own

A four-year-old asks on average about 400 questions per day, and an adult hardly asks any. Our school system is structured around rewards for regurgitating the right answer, and not asking smart questions – in fact, it discourages asking questions. With the result that as we grow older, we stop asking questions. Yet asking good questions is essential to find and develop solutions, and an important skill in innovation, strategy, and leadership. So why do we stop asking questions – and more importantly, why don’t we train each other, and our future leaders, to ask the right questions starting from early on?"

A four-year-old asks, on average, 400 questions a day. By the time he or she reaches adulthood, they will ask very few per day. Speaking as someone who’s probably never going to grow up, allow me to emphasize that:

  • Why questions help to find the root of a problem
  • What If questions open up the floor for creative solutions
  • How questions focus on developing practical solutions
Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, February 9, 11:11 AM

Anything that gives students a chance to ask their own questions is a good idea in my opinion.  When the questions invoke critical thinking, it's a double bonus!  Also, writing these questions on any pre-made box would work.  No need to be crafty with scissors and tape.

Simon Awuyo's curator insight, February 11, 2:04 PM

The student teachers need these tips to help them cultivate skills of asking probing questions to become better teachers tomorrow.

This post shares the story of one teacher and her implementation of a research project which culminated in an infographic. After a brief introduction (which includes an excellent interactive infographic, 13 Reasons Why Your Brain Craves Infographics). Following this introduction there are six components that are shared:

* Select an Infographic-Friendly Topic

* Begin the Drafting Process by Hand

* Choose the Right Templates or Software

* Refine Content and Design

* Infographic Resources and Tools for Educators

* Share and Critique

Virtually unlimited classrooms: Pedagogical practices in massive open online courses

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 25, 2014 11:35 PM

Abstract:


Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become a prominent feature of the higher education discourse in recent years. Yet, little is known about the effectiveness of these online courses in engaging participants in the learning process. This study explores the range of pedagogical tools used in 24 MOOCs, including the epistemological and social dimensions of instruction, to consider the extent to which these courses provide students with high-quality, collaborative learning experiences. Findings suggest that the range of pedagogical practices currently used in MOOCs tends toward an objectivist-individual approach, with some efforts to incorporate more constructivist and group-oriented approaches. By examining MOOCs through the lens of engaged teaching and learning, this study raises concerns about the degree to which MOOCs are actually revolutionizing higher education by using technology to improve quality, and challenges educators to strive for more creative and empowering forms of open online learning.

Today, social media is enabling everybody to increase the visibility of their views on topics they care about. This can foster dialogue, but does not automatically turn anyone into a subject matter expert or even a thought leader as such. Still, if you are, you will get found and your reach and impact will increase, thanks to the connected globa nature of social media.

This graphic provides a good categorization of different degrees of influence  you may acquire thanks to your use of social media. Where would you place yourself on it? Where do you want to be?

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, February 22, 10:22 AM

MOOCs seem like a simple concept, but they demand a new way of approaching education--it means REALLY letting the learner be in charge of their learning rather than having professors be both the font of knowledge and gatekeeper/policeman.  The design structure to accommodate large numbers of participants, deliver content at multiple levels, different learning styles and demanding different time investments while including assessment strategies that evaluate a reasonable level of expertise and provide feedback of any value for the participant, while precluding cheating, is nearly impossible.  This traditional model is behind the Certificates offered for a price.  They are a clever way of monetizing MOOCs, but not a very reliable representation of knowledge acquisition.   The movement toward peer assessment is an interesting permutation, but still begs the question of how (or if) knowledge should be demonstrated and documented.

Verso is a new tool that come to us from teachers in Australia. It provides teachers the ability to create a 'challenge' and provide a prompt, which may be a video, document, website, etc. Add some thought provoking questions and students may answer within Verso. Students must post their own answer before they can respond to others, and all answers are anonymous.

Verso provides a number of resources to help you get started, including:

* Getting Started - This section "shows you how to Verso in 90 seconds", providing a number of examples (and you may choose one to try with your students).

* Strategies to Support Deeper Thinking - This section is very robust, and it is worth the time to check it out. They provide nine strategies to support deeper thinking, including:

     - Ask for more than one type of response from your student

     - Be explicit about how you want your students to respond, model an answer in your instruction

     - Be provocative to promote debate amongst your students

     - Let your students answer the questions. This section has an excellent resource "Asking Googleable vs NonGoogleable Questions"

*Verso Strategies: Building Deeper Collaboration Using Google Drive

* How To - Discover a range of videos and examples to help you get started

* Example Provocations - Find a wide variety of examples that you may choose to use.

They also have a blog that provides additional resources.

Their website uses three key words: Challenge, Engage, Learn. This website will allow your students to be challenged, engaged and learn and is worth taking some time to explore.

"Killing a learner’s natural curiosity doesn’t happen overnight. It can take as long as 12 years, and in some rare cases even that isn’t long enough.

Learning environments focused on standards, assessment, and compliance allow for the implementation of research-based strategies in pursuit of streams of data to prove that learning is happening. Curiosity is nice, but it’s a monumental challenge to measure."
