Web tools to support inquiry-based learning | Eduwebinar | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

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.

Carly Pechal's curator insight, September 25, 2015 10:45 AM

What are the current trends in Emerging Technology and why  are popular today in the educational world? Well, from 3D printing to Augmented Reality, there seems to be a lot of different forms of technology taking place to enhance learning experiences, versus just learning. Think of reading a traditional book to your 2nd graders, instead, you bring an iPad into the mix, and you bring a book to life using augmented reality. There are reasons for each of the trends and why and how they are becoming so popular in the educational setting for learning experiences.

As things stand now, many teachers receive professional development around technology platforms that often turn over or are replaced by something else. The report notes, “This challenge is exacerbated by the fact that digital literacy is less about tools and more about thinking, and thus skills and standards based on tools and platforms have proven to be somewhat ephemeral.”

A Taxonomy of Reflection: A Model for Critical Thinking | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've led many teachers and administrators on classroom walkthroughs designed to foster a collegial conversation about teaching and learning. The walkthroughs served as roving Socratic seminars and a catalyst for reflection. But reflection can be a challenging endeavor. It's not something that's fostered in school - typically someone else tells you how you're doing!

Turtle projects are infrastructure projects that improve bandwidth in schools, the Open University, Janet & SuperJanet, Wikipedia, Khan Academy, YouTube, MOOCs. Moodle… I could go on all day. None of these initiatives are device-focused. They focus on cognitive ergonomics not consumer electronics. Lesson here – stop the largely wasted research on device-based projects, the endless stream of apps and do not keep on taking (and buying) the tablets.

A growing body of anecdotal evidence suggests that we may be in the early stages of an important trend in digital higher education, in which colleges and universities rethink and rework how they develop online course materials. The common approach, which took hold during the early days of online education in the late 1990s, and has its roots in classroom education, puts development in the hands of lone educators with limited time, expertise in course design, resources and incentives - what Tony
