A simple link. That's all it took to unleash a hailstorm of angry emails, messages, tweets, and comments. Why? I dared wonder if libraries will continue to exist in the future.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads | School Librarianship | 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)."

Of course (to me) this article begs the question of why Mighty Writers waited until AFTER the school libraries were closed to jump into action. I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth - I appreciate what they're doing and admire the efforts to keep books in the hands of children. I do have to wonder why this amount of energy didn't seem to be spent on keeping school libraries open and certified school librarians on the job. I'd love to find a more complete timeline...

Good, clear infographic comparing different learning theories alongside connectivism. Interesting to consider, whether you appreciate the theory or not.

I think I could read this article several times and come with new ideas for those 4 phases every time. This is an EXCELLENT article with visual to share with teachers who either want to implement a more inquiry-based structure or are curious as to what it means.
