Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

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.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, January 16, 12:46 AM
School librarians have always taught how to evaluate websites and today it's no different. The public are now more aware of the fact that there is news out there that needs to be questioned. In that way it is making librarians jobs easier because we have the skills to teach evaluation and are now being asked to do so.
