Why Inquiry Learning is Worth the Trouble

Why Inquiry Learning is Worth the Trouble | 21st century skills & learning | Scoop.it

INQUIRING ABOUT INQUIRY

Lehmann said it’s important to question whether alleged “personalized,” “project-based,” or “collaborative” learning efforts are actually helping students and teachers to “hold ourselves in a state of questioning.”

“Inquiry means living in the soup. Inquiry means living in that uncomfortable space where we don’t know the answer.” I like the 'soup' analogy used here...what do YOU think about Inquiry Learning?

Kath Murdoch Blog: Just Wondering...Letting go, shedding skins and teaching as trapeze…. | 21st century skills & learning | Scoop.it

One of the great privileges of my job is bearing witness to the process of ‘reconstruction’ that teachers experience as they transit to more
inquiry-based practice.  Becoming an inquiry teacher can mean a significant degree of ‘unlearning’ as beliefs and roles are reconsidered and re-shaped.

The SAMR Ladder Through the Lens of 21st Century Skills - Getting Smart

The SAMR Ladder Through the Lens of 21st Century Skills - Getting Smart | 21st century skills & learning | Scoop.it

"This summer I have been digging deeper into the SAMR  model of tech integration to help educators embrace 1:1 learning and the changes it will bring about. SAMR is a truly useful tool for helping teachers identify their current comfort zone in order to build expertise in designing efficient and effective student learning experiences. To reach higher levels on the SAMR ladder, teachers can make some planning and instructional shifts. A look at the big picture is helpful when trying to understand how to help students develop important 21st Century Skills at each level."

20 + Things you can do with QR codes in your school | 21st century skills & learning | Scoop.it

QR codes are possibly one of the most underused useful features of new technology. Perhaps one of the main reasons for this is that many people see them as a form of barcode and wrongly believe that they can only be produced by companies, but the reality is anyone can produce a QR code within seconds.
