36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Malta Digital Curation and Learning | 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)."

Automation or empowerment: online learning at the crossroads | Tony Bates | Malta Digital Curation and Learning | Scoop.it
The key question we face is whether online learning should aim to replace teachers and instructors through automation, or whether technology should be used to empower not only teachers but also learners. Of course, the answer will always be a mix of both, but getting the balance right is critical.

I curate digital information. To do so I build and employ filters that help me sift through to find the gold.

 

One very simple filter is "When Tony Bates Talks -- Listen.

 

Love him or hate him. Agree or Disagree. Bates will get you thinking as he supplies historical context along with his thought provoking ideas.
