Kuropatwa - Providing “Permission To Wonder”: Inquiry as thinking and learning tools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In a world where knowledge is more a verb than a noun how do we foster deep learning in our students? Good questions cause thinking. Unfortunately, many of the questions regularly asked in classrooms focus on knowledge as a noun. This presentation will explore inquiry as a pedagogical stance and the effective use of thinking and learning tools in the classroom. We will work together to model teaching practices that lead to students co-constructing a networked (real world) rather than hierarchical (artificial) understanding of their world regardless of grade level or discipline.
Participants will leave this workshop with a toolkit of research based questioning and thinking strategies they can begin using with their students tomorrow.
