Inquiry-based Learning

Follow two teachers as they explore and learn about inquiry learning. 

 

Join us as we investigate how to implement inquiry-based learning in our grade 5/6 classroom (grade 4/5  - 2013/2014). We've added a new tab on our website that is connected to the work we are doing in inquiry to support the curriculum roll-out of the "New Ontario Revised Social Studies, History & Geography" (2013) document. This document focus' on the inquiry process and concepts of disciplinary thinking. We are pleased to have the opportunity to be a part of the roll-out team for the Ministry of Education.

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.

Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | Library learning centre builds lifelong learners. | Scoop.it

Many students with weak decoding skills can read: with their ears. As teachers, we can make a strategic choice of differentiating in our lessons in order to allow a poor reader to ‘read with their ears’ in class until the time they can read with their eyes. As long as this occurs alongside additional intervention to address their decoding difficulties, we may be improving his or her life chances by providing this opportunity.

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.
