Innovations in Education - Create a Culture of Questioning and Inquiry

Innovations in Education - Create a Culture of Questioning and Inquiry | Maryland School Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it

"I have often suggested to teachers that when students have access to technology, whether it is provided by the school in a 1:1, BYOD, or simply the smart phone in their pocket, there should never be a question that goes unanswered –or un-followed. These are teachable moments for how to effectively search for information (information literacy & digital literacy) ...What I discovered in the 300+ observations I have done for our 21st Century Learning grant work was that the problem isn’t necessarily about allowing time for students to answer questions. The problem is that they rarely ask questions beyond simply clarifying what needs to be done for the assignment."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 12, 2013 8:43 PM

As teachers we ask our students questions all the time...but how often do your students ask questions...perhaps a better question would be do they know how to ask good questions? This post provides some background material as well as ideas for "how you might begin to shift from a culture of compliance, to a culture of questioning in your classroom." 

One of the ideas she suggests is looking at information from the Right Question Institute and purchasing a book "Make Just One Change: Teach Students To Ask Their Own Questions." I have been reading this book and find it an incredible resource.

“When you are able to read closely you are doing three things at once:

Lens – What am I looking for? (examples:  text evidence, word choice, structure, figurative language)Patterns –  What patterns do I notice?  (Not to pick out one just one word, but to look across the text to determine ‘What does the author tend to do?’)Idea -What is the big idea that this author is writing about?   (not just confirm previous thinking)”  (Kate Roberts, 6/26/2013, Teachers College Writing Institute)

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 19, 8:46 AM

Richard Byrne has created an eBook that provides step-by-step directions on creating a simple comic using the free version of Storybard That. You will find information on how to create the following projects:

* Project #1 - Crafting Fiction Stories with Comics and Crafting Short Stories with Comics

* Project #2 - Telling True Stories with Comics

* Project #3 - Turning Comic Strips into Movies

* Project #4 - Book Trailer Comics Videos

* Project #5 - Publishing Multimedia eBooks

Storyboard That also has a premium version (which costs money) and this version allows you to create and manage student accounts for your classroom. If you plan on using comics as a tool for students to demonstrate their understanding you will also find screenshots on how to do this in the eBook.

Striking a Balance: Digital Tools and Distraction in School

Striking a Balance: Digital Tools and Distraction in School | Maryland School Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it

When my students leave high school, they will need to know norms and etiquette for their devices. They will also need to know themselves -- specifically, their own limits when it comes to distraction. Eventually, they should know when to put their phone away because it's distracting them, or when listening to music while they work is slowing them down.
