The Art of Asking Questions

The Art of Asking Questions | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
At one time or another, most of us have been disappointed by the caliber of the questions students ask in class, online, or in the office. Many of them are such mundane questions: “Will material from the book be on the exam?” “How long should the paper be?” “Can we use Google to find references?” “Would you repeat what you just said? I didn’t get it all down in my notes.” Rarely do they ask thoughtful questions that probe the content and stir the interest of the teacher and other students.

This could also be 14 Little-Known Ways Anyone Can Get More Out of Google - I'm sure there are little tips or tricks that will be new to us. While we in school library land encourage students to use academic databases, some of these suggestions may just help them find decent information and weed through the junk. You know... because they're going to Google it anyway... ;-)

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it

A major criticism I have of most educational institutions is that their primary focus is on students’ intellectual and cognitive development.  Too often individual learner’s needs do not enter into the equation of their educations.  Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a useful model for educators to use to help insure that they are addressing more of the whole child.

David Baker's curator insight, March 15, 2014 7:21 PM

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

The Awkward 'Privacy Talk' Parents Should Have With Their Kids

The Awkward 'Privacy Talk' Parents Should Have With Their Kids | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
Parents across the world today need to have a new conversation with their kids. No, it’s not about behaving in class, not talking to strangers, or having sex. But in so many ways, it's just as important. It’s data permanence. How we can preserve our reputations in the digital era?

 

It’s a conversation that will look very different in different parts of the world. In some places, kids will have to think twice before posting photos of teenage escapades, given how such photos may look to others in a professional environment even many years later. In other places, kids will have to be careful of posting any items that may “dishonor” them or their family in some way.


In still other places, kids will have to think about whether what they post on sensitive political, ethnic, or religious issues may define them long after they have changed their views.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, March 5, 2014 9:05 AM

We have been having these types of important discussions with our students in digital literacy classes. What is interesting to note is that it becomes a parent piece that often schools have to provide to help them keep up with their children and  the good, bad and the ugly of technology.

 

Noeline Laccetti's curator insight, March 5, 2014 9:47 AM

Data permanence must be addressed with ALL children, and well before the "sex talk" 

Jenny Ritchie's curator insight, March 5, 2014 7:36 PM

New technologies have exposed behaviours of young people which have put their future success at risk.  Are these new behaviours created by the opportunities that are provided by new technology?  Or are these behaviours that would have been typical of young people even without the technologies they use as a vehicle to display them?

Cat's Chronicles: Educating Parents on iPads being used in Classrooms | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it

As a past administrator I fully understand the value of communication and it is one that I consistently see overlooked in schools by teachers and administrators.  I am not sure the average joe in schools gets how important communication is between home and school.  As an administrator almost everything I did, or everything that came up, came back to communication or lack thereof.  Not once has communicating with a parent or guardian as teacher, principal, or coach ever turned out to be a bad situation for me in the end.
