How do we get students to conduct inquiry-driven research where they cannot easily Google the answer? This post provides a look at how to teach teenagers by using questions that do not have an easy answer, specifically "Who is more popular, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, or Beyoncé?" It does not have a clear cut answer and requires that you look at trends. A description of what this question led to is provided and it shows that answering this question leads to a range of resources that students must also look at and evaluate.

But what about younger students? Two suggestions are made that will help you start thinking about how to do this and engage younger students in conducting inquiry-driven research. For more information on this click through to the post.

This blog  hits the nail on the head...reasearch papers must be inquiry based. In order to be college and career ready students must know how to  draw inferences and make conclusions using evidence to back up their argument. They must also know how to identify credible sources. Using this inquiry driven research approach teaches them "how to fish", which is a lifelong survival skill students will need To function in today's society.m

* NewsELA is a website that provides students access to articles written at different lexiles, starting with Grade 3 or 4 and moving through Grade 12. It is free and you can create a classroom account and also assign articles to be read. Some (but not all) of the articles have quizzes attached that ask questions based on Common Core and you will be able to see the results. Questions are different for each reading lexile.

* EdWeb is a professional and social networking that provides a wealth of resources including free webinars. It is a great tool to help improve teaching and learning.

* Timelapse provides you a look at what is happening based on satellite photography taken over the last 30 years.

Click through to the post to explore these tools and seven others...and stay tuned for the release of the top ten!

Teachers can start using Hangouts simply by setting up a Google+ page and signing up for the Hangout feature. They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.

Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available tostudents wherever—and whenever—they need them. “Flipped” or blended learning offers students thepower of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace.
