Barry Kayton's insight:

John Lloyd references this quote from Alice Wellington Rollings: “The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer.”

What are questions? by Jason Fried of Basecamp

Barry Kayton's insight:

Jason Fried paraphrases Clay Christensen as follows: “Questions are places in your mind where answers fit. If you haven’t asked the question, the answer has nowhere to go.

Confuse Students to Help Them Learn

Confuse Students to Help Them Learn | The role of questions in learning | Scoop.it
Forcing them to work past impasses can promote deeper levels of comprehension, researchers find.
Barry Kayton's insight:

I don't agree that our aim as educators or trainers should be to confuse learners. But this article describes a technique that makes perfect sense. Where tutors "provide some leading questions but no clear answers" students/trainers struggle to wrap their heads around a concept. And this leads to students to learn more than in cases where concepts are explained straightforwardly.

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer | The role of questions in learning | Scoop.it
In a traditional classroom, the teacher is the center of attention, the owner of knowledge and information. Teachers often ask questions of their students to gauge comprehension, but it's a passive model that relies on students to absorb information they need to reproduce on tests. What would happen if the roles were flipped and students asked the questions?
