Questioning In The eLearning Environment

Questioning In The eLearning Environment | Science Inquiry Questioning | Scoop.it

"As discussed in A Primer in Effective Questioning, Part I, it is important that traditional and eLearning teachers employ a variety of question types that address a range of intellectual skills.

 

Questions should not only be used to assess student comprehension of the material, but also to help students extend their thinking and creativity skills by connecting ideas to each other and applying concepts to the real world. For teachers, this means first having a clear understanding of the hierarchy of lower order to higher order intellectual skills, and then using questioning techniques in the classroom that address the full range of cognitive abilities."

Innovations in Education - Create a Culture of Questioning and Inquiry

Innovations in Education - Create a Culture of Questioning and Inquiry | Science Inquiry Questioning | 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.

I agree Teri. It encourages reading and encourages students to be in charge of their learning.

Using the Socratic process the educator is a tutor.  The process  encourages evaluative and analytical thinking.
