We know this connected generation loves technology and wants to be in charge of their learning. Inquiry-based learning is a perfect match! New standards, such as the C3 Social Studies, NGSS, ISTE and AASL Standards, and the Common Core, all embrace inquiry research, so educators need to understand the differences between finding information and finding answers. This webinar will help teachers and librarians repackage old research models for Gen-Z students.
Paige Jaegar spotlighted why inquiry works and how to build learning adventures that spark imagination and enable your students to uncover and discover essential understandings of any discipline.
Gain an understanding of how to package content with an inquiry mindset using digital and print resources. Topics included:
- Why inquiry works for your students
- What inquiry learning is and what subjects can use it
- How to build an Essential Question (aka Umbrella Question or EQ)
- Vital building blocks of inquiry learning
- Weaving technology into knowledge products to ensure students synthesis and that they are not merely reporting
This recorded session will benefit school librarians, classroom teachers, and curriculum leaders at the elementary and middle school level. Learn how to bring inquiry-based learning to the Gen-Z student!
