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. 

 

Jheny Cifuentes Tobon's curator insight, May 26, 3:24 PM
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.

Therefore, it is our responsibility as teachers and educators to fully understand the components of this set of skills in order to better focus on them in our instruction.Enokson has created for us a kind of road map containing all the major critical thinking skills we need to know about.

Synthesis is about incorporating it and flows with evaluation. We tend to get to analysis and no further. The fragments at that level need to be assessed and incorporated into a useful package. It is a form of wisdom.

We need to teach our students to have a critical eye when navigating the web.  Below are a few ideas and resources to help you teach your learners about digital literacy.

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Passion-based learning in action: Brian Crosby at TEDxDenverEd | Critical Thinking and Active Learning | Scoop.it

Do you consider yourself a passionate person? What are the things about which you are passionate? Are you passionate about kids and helping kids learn? Are you passionate about opening up new vistas of experiences and understanding for others which – absent your intervention – they might never experience? Are you passionate about creating moments of unforgettable learning? Learning that is SO engaging, so motivating, so interesting, and so fun – that those fortunate enough to experience it will NEVER forget it? Nevada elementary teacher Brian Crosby is this kind of person, and this kind of educational leader. Brian gave the world a seventeen minute glimpse into his 4th grade classroom a few weeks ago in Denver at the TEDx event.
