Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 28, 2013 9:24 PM

How do we get students to conduct inquiry-driven research where they cannot easily Google the answer? This post provides a look at how to teach teenagers by using questions that do not have an easy answer, specifically "Who is more popular, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, or Beyoncé?" It does not have a clear cut answer and requires that you look at trends. A description of what this question led to is provided and it shows that answering this question leads to a range of resources that students must also look at and evaluate.

But what about younger students? Two suggestions are made that will help you start thinking about how to do this and engage younger students in conducting inquiry-driven research. For more information on this click through to the post.

R. Alisha J. Hill's curator insight, December 28, 2013 10:16 PM

This blog  hits the nail on the head...reasearch papers must be inquiry based. In order to be college and career ready students must know how to  draw inferences and make conclusions using evidence to back up their argument. They must also know how to identify credible sources. Using this inquiry driven research approach teaches them "how to fish", which is a lifelong survival skill students will need To function in today's society.m

44 Education Apps For K-6 Open-Ended Learning On The iPad | TeachThought | Trending Information for School Librarians | Scoop.it

"Education apps are helpful for teachers because they refract content through engaging, colorful, and gamified approaches to content interaction.

 

They are also mobile, can offer data, and can be played at school or home, making them useful in a K-12 blended learning or flipped classroom setting.

 

With this kind of flexible utility in mind, it’s no wonder they’re in such high demand–so here are 44 education apps for K-6 students doing the best kind of learning math teachers hate and English-Language Arts teachers love: open-ended learning."
