The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum

The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum | library life | Scoop.it
As an administrator, whenever I walk into a teacher’s classroom, one of the first things I almost always subconsciously look for is whether or not the students are engaged in inquiry. However, telling a teacher, “Your students need to engage in more inquiry,” is comparable to letting a comedian know she needs to be funnier or asking a pizzaiolo to make a better dough. And, vague directives in the absence of explicit instruction typically generate anxiety.

To avoid these anxieties, and for progress to actually take place, we need to drill down to the nitty gritty and be as explicit as possible. In other words, we need to be explicit about being explicit and leverage specific strategies to comfortably move forward for the benefit of our students.

With these thoughts in mind, I’ve been obsessing over inquiry’s common denominators – the strategies or drivers we should always consider when implementing an inquiry-based lesson.

That being said, here are the six drivers of inquiry-based learning. And, while I don’t think every lesson or activity must have all six, I do believe that once we (and our students) become comfortable with an inquiry approach, all drivers will naturally find a way into learning experiences on a regular, if not daily, basis.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, November 2, 8:06 AM

El aprendizaje basado en la indagación (inquiry-based learning) se puede definir como aprendizaje que comienza planteando preguntas, problemas o escenarios, en lugar de simplemente presentar hechos establecidos o describir un camino liso, sin obstáculos aparentes, hacia el conocimiento. En resumen, descubrimos material, en contraposición a la cobertura de contenido y a la memorización y regurgitación de hechos y conocimiento.

How To Make Learning Visible: A Spectrum - TeachThought

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, November 1, 8:31 AM

"Las credenciales (badges), como evidencia de logro son interesantes, pero insuficientes porque son residuales, efectistas, simples artefactos. Pero si las usamos como la primera "etapa" de una idea en crecimiento, entonces podemos iluminar y catalizar el aprendizaje como un proceso mientras está sucediendo, y en el proceso, conectar a los estudiantes con alguien más que sólo el docente.

La gran idea, entonces, es desarrollar el pensamiento detrás de las calificaciones, los certificados y las credenciales en pos de una ecología genuina de aprendizaje, empujando al pasado el compartir simplemente evidencia de un "dominio" (que es perecedero), para enfocarse en cómo hacen preguntas los estudiantes, buscan la información, aplican sus propios pensamientos y ven el aprendizaje como un proceso fluido y completamente personal." (Terry Heick)

Technology Alone Won’t Transform Education – We Need A Whole New Approach To Teaching And Learning

Technology Alone Won’t Transform Education – We Need A Whole New Approach To Teaching And Learning | library life | Scoop.it
Perhaps the main reason for this disappointing impact is that the inclusion of technologies in schools has done little to change the ‘tell and practise’ approach to teaching and learning – the predominant pedagogical practice of our time.

In this model, teachers tell students what knowledge is and what is worth knowing; meanwhile, students invest their limitless capacity for investigating, thinking critically, creating, hypothesising, and collaborating by memorising and practising what they’re told.

7 Reasons You Need to Try Voice Typing in Google Docs | Shake Up Learning

7 Reasons You Need to Try Voice Typing in Google Docs | Shake Up Learning | library life | Scoop.it
As a former ELA teacher, I am naturally drawn to technology that supports reading and writing. Google Docs is fully-loaded with some features that can save us time in and out of the classroom, and often times can even save us a little heartache when it comes to supporting students.

One tiny little feature that packs an amazing punch is Voice Typing in Google Docs. This is a speech-to-text feature that is built-in to the most popular word processor in the world, and it is available to you and your students if you have a microphone in your devices.

You can dictate all kinds of words, lists, and writing into Google Docs. You can also dictate formatting, punctuation, and editing. But wait…there’s more! YOU CAN DICTATE IN OTHER LANGUAGES!!!!! WHOA!!!!
