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.

The brain's active processing capacity is finite, so unless knowledge is encoded in long-term memory, having to search for it actually crowds out other forms of cognition. Knowing things helps you think and read successfully.

Embedded non-fiction when reading fiction with students helps with understanding not only of the fiction but how non-fiction is a useful tool for learning. Interesting read.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, February 3, 3:13 PM
This is a powerful article from Educational Leadership that provides research to back up the fact that prior knowledge is a key component to reading instruction. We tend to think that knowing something is less important nowadays because we can simply Google the answer. Not so, according to author Doug Lemov. This is my take-away: "The brain's active processing capacity is finite, so unless knowledge is encoded in long-term memory, having to search for it actually crowds out other forms of cognition. Knowing things helps you think and read successfully."
This has implications for libraries and how we support reading instruction. To me, it also solidifies the practice of allowing students to check out books that interest them as they emerge as readers and not pigeon-hole them into Lexile ranges. Those little nuggets of information could be just that piece of prior knowledge needed to "think and read successfully" in the future. Enjoy!

Developing digital literacy in learners | eWorks

Developing digital literacy in learners | eWorks | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
“Digital literacy involves finding, using and disseminating information in a digital world” (Deakin University, 2016). Digital literacy is also a transversal skill, which means that by having good digital literacy, a person’s ability to learn and improve other skills increases through the use of technology.

In the next 5-10 years, a number of routine jobs will be taken over by automation and artificial intelligence (AI) (ACS, 2016). This automation and AI will also be ingrained in workplaces, homes and everything we do, due to the increased productivity and lifestyle gains that these technologies provide. In order to remain current in the workplace, and to be able to fully function in society, the need for good digital literacy has never been greater.

Create Your Own Custom Search Engine

Create Your Own Custom Search Engine | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
When I work with elementary teachers, one of the biggest concerns I hear about is the fear of what students will find online. Teachers know it’s important to teach students how to search effectively, evaluate website credibility, and cite their sources, but it can be scary when teachers are working with younger students.

One way to teach these important skills, while keeping students safe online, is to create a custom search engine. This way teachers can identify appropriate and safe online websites to include in their custom search engines.

Here’s how you can create one to use with your students:

Blogs: Do They Serve Any Real Purpose? | #Blogging #ICT #Communication #LEARNing2LEARN #LEARNingByDoing | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
Does the average person even know or understand what a blog is? Do professionals understand how blogs influence their profession? Are teachers using blogs as both relevant reading and writing tools? Are students using blogs to create their voice? Do people in general see any importance in blogging to reflect, question, criticize, or improve the world in which we live?

Do blogs have a value in our world today that is at least understood, if not appreciated, by those who should? Does the access to blogs require too much tech savvy, critical thinking, and a mindset different from the 20th Century to prevent the acceptance of blogs as a change force in our 21st Century world?

 

Will a large enough group of people even read this post to make a difference or will people need to print it out to share copies with others?
