10+ Terrific Resources for Teaching Questioning Skills to Your Students

10+ Terrific Resources for Teaching Questioning Skills to Your Students | teacher education | Scoop.it
Teachers are always on the lookout for ways to foster questioning skills in students. First of all, let’s define our subject. At skillsyouneed.com the topic of questioning is covered succinctly in this article. It asks us to consider why we question things. So why do we?
We question to gather information. It helps us learn. We communicate and understand others through questioning. It helps us explore the world we live in. We also test acquired knowledge with good questioning skills. They are skills that serve us in school and in everything beyond it. Curiosity and questioning are what keep us interested and engaged in life.

Each year, CORE Education’s experienced staff of researchers, education trainers, and technology experts pool their knowledge and expertise, and through a thorough process put together and publish CORE’s prognosis on what are the coming ten major trends in eLearning and education generally that will make an impact upon education in New Zealand (and other parts of the world) in the coming year.

Interesting while not attending to the fact that the education is becoming a market place where business principles and ethics will dominate and constrain education.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 18 Great Science apps for iPad

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 18 Great Science apps for iPad | teacher education | Scoop.it

"Gone are the days when you would have to attend those boring classes and spend hours listening to  the teacher lecturing about abstract scientific concepts that are more perplexing than illuminating. I said perplexing because they lack a very important  learning principle that make them unlearnable: they do not connect to the  ' embodied experiences ' of the learners and what James Paul Gee meant by this principle is that for learning to be effective it needs to connect to the learners life, experiences, and environment. When learners are able to make such connections their comprehension improves and becomes more solid."

The Connected Teacher - Personal and Professional Disenthrallment

The Connected Teacher - Personal and Professional Disenthrallment | teacher education | Scoop.it

"Now, I love the school where I currently teach; after all, I’ve spent 17 years there, which represents more than half of my teaching career. But, for the past 2 or 3 years I’ve suspected that the school has been suffering from what I might call amalaise. Up until recently, I believed the problem was that many of my colleagues lacked the skill set required to teach in a school which has a 1:1 program of Apple laptops. I was wrong; what my school needs is a new mindset; teachers need to bedisenthralled. There needs to be a fundamental shift; an acceptance that education and learning can and must be transformed. I can give my colleagues the skill set required to teach in 2013 and beyond but the new mindset must come first; disenthrallment is a personal and professional undertaking, a commitment to change."

Kristy Leong's curator insight, September 26, 2013 3:50 AM

I think this article was a really great read. I think that some of these ideas are great to help leverage the power of tech gadgets in the classroom and learning environment. Today technology is advancing and I think personally that it needs to be used more in the classroom situations. Kids today before reaching school have iPads or tablets to engage themselves with there learning skills. Specifically to this article they are looking at kids being able to use their tech gadgets in class. The ideas of using smartphones are to collaborate, communicate, create, curate and coordinate. One of the ideas for collaborating was embracing the power of augmented reality with apps like Planet Finder. This can make the kids really engage themselves into the study to try and find the planets by pointing their phones into the sky. The idea behind smart phones to communicate to communicate is great especially if you are in a PE class. Uploading videos and data straight away between the PE coach and student can take less time off and can be visual and accessed at all times. Getting students to create a Pinterest on a given topic is another good idea for the student to engage with technology and let other students see what they have done also. Lastly curate and coordinate is good for students to access PDF files, rather them all trying to get a book out having to go to a library. All these ideas are great for kids and teenagers make learning more fun and engaging themselves with technology.

Janessa Bartsch's comment, September 26, 2013 5:33 AM
This is a really interesting article, that could be seen as a real positive by teaching children the importance of appropriate internet behavior. On the negative side by incorporating such technology into young children in schools, it encourages marketers to target such young and vulnerable buyers and gets children hooked into using products such as tablets and other technologies which replaces the idea of exploring answers themselves
Jayden Cody Lamb's comment, September 26, 2013 5:46 AM
Relating back to Kristy’s post on the article, I highly agree that technology is rapidly changing and that it should be used more often in everyday situations such as the classrooms. Technology is around us whether we like it or not we should embrace it and make it smart to use in classrooms with apps on smartphones to advance learning.
