Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, February 1, 2014 2:40 AM

It is hugely important that school libraries and librarians keep pointing out what our role in education is.  I recently had a conversation that allowed someone in education to see the important connection of librarians and ICT to help teach information literacy and good research skills. Conversations must keep happening.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | School Library Matters of Interest | Scoop.it

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)."
