Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, January 24, 3:23 AM

It's interesting to see that content curation is evolving from an opportunity to a necessity as communication shifts from traditional methods (PR, advertising, old-style SEO...) to new ones (content marketing, inbound marketing, social media...). In this new world of communication many things have changed and professionals or companies who want to get heard need to consider this question:


Do people listen to you because they have to or because they want to?


As my friend Steve Rosenbaum, author of Curation Nation, puts it in his latest book, Curate This, we can't rely anymore on captive audiences. Consumers filter out spammy messages which is why, to be heard, we have to curate or die.

Marta Torán's curator insight, January 26, 3:46 PM

La curación de contenidos, casi un imperativo si queremos sobrevivir a la información. Muy bueno.

Dean Ryan G. Martin's curator insight, Today, 12:08 AM

It says "Content curation requires hard work." I disagree. Content curation is my hobby. I love curating contents even I'm not paid.

From helping kids develop artistic skills to tutorials on complicated numerical, apps are changing the way children are learning today, says Shantanu Prakash . 

Over the last decade, as information technology has revolutionized education, it has also spawned numerous inventive sub-cultures of software and hardware development that go to support education delivery. One of the most promising features of this eco-system has been educational apps.
