It always comes down to the questions we ask.

 

The role of questions in learning
Education should not be about questioning learners to test them, but rather helping learners to question.

Barry Kayton's insight:

A driving question is critical to project based learning.

 

"A good Driving Question captures the heart of the project in clear, compelling language, which gives students a sense
of purpose and challenge. The Question should be provocative, open-ended, complex, and linked to the core of what you want students to learn. It could be abstract (When is war justified?); concrete (Is our water safe to drink?); or focused on solving a problem (How can we improve this website so that more young people will use 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?
