I had a problem with the "synthesis" skills. Shouldn't it suggest example questions like "in what ways is person A similar to person B? How does report a, b, and c inform your ____ practices in the future?" Things like that.

For educators who believe that the worksheet is a necessary tool for learning, this website provides stimulating yet easy ways to replace worksheets while still gauging comprehension.  These methods allow scholars to become enthralled in deep and meaningful learning experiences through creative methods.

As future teachers, we have to think on the best way to teach content to our students. The traditional strategy that most teacher use to expose students to authentic material and the real world is by means of worksheets. However, nowadays, teachers need to acknowledge the fact that there are many tools that they can use to get students practice new knowledge. In this sense, teachers need to give students the opportunity to explore it through their environment and senses; teachers have to encourage students to draw, paint and feel what they are learning. Besides, teachers can also use technology that is one of the skills that students have to develop in this century. In short words, teachers have to give students a meaningful learning experience, which goes beyond the use of a worksheet.

Wondering and curiosity = posing questions. The first step of Inquiry learning and maximum student engagement...
jessica cascianelli's curator insight, May 19, 2014 11:02 PM

This resource is interesting as it discusses the use of questioning in the classroom. It explains how the teacher takes a step back and allows the students to ask the questions instead of simply answering the teachers questions. It also has steps or rules for teachers, to help their students to produce their own questions. It explores the concept that allowing students to create their own questions can develop higher order thinking skills as creating questions requires deeper thinking than simply answering questions. 

 

So, how does this fit in with the Design and Technologies curriculum? When students are conducting investigations, experimenting, exploring, deconstructing or even producing produces, they should be asking questions. One aspect of the Design and Technologies curriculum  (2014) is decision-making processes which is informed by ethical, legal, aesthetic and functional factors. To make decision effectively, students need to be able to question there plans or products to make sure it meets these different factors. 


While this article is a blog. The website has many useful ideas and discussions as well as learning strategies and games.

In a century where everything is changing, the educational system and traditional thinking of it has to change, too. Nowadays, students are taking a more critical stance on what they are being taught, and as teacher we must encourage them to do so. Students can be the ones who do the questions instead of teachers. In this order, students need to become more empowered in the classroom; they need to analyze and judge the content they are being taught and come up with analytical questions.
This is a strategy that has been used in many schools around the world and that has given good results; it is time that we use new methodologies in which students play a more important role in the learning process so that there can be a real change.
