Compelling Reason

I recently read a post from George Couros. If you don't already subscribe to his newsletters then I'd recommend you do, they don't take long to read and are inspiring and informative. This one resonated with me because it contained this reminder: "when you have a compelling reason, you can learn anything". There was also a delightful video, an advertisement for whisky but with a strong message about the power of purpose.As…See More

I'm a Genius

Yes, it's true, I'm a genius! How do I know this? because Facebook told me so it must be true. Apparently my geniusness (my own word - because I'm a genius and allowed to make up words) is demonstrated in my ability to notice the missing number in this sequence and type it in the comments below.  Or because I can think of…See More

Andragogy vs Pedagogy - Makes me want to scream!

Cross-posted from my Inquiring Mind blog.There is nothing more likely to get me to screaming point than an article about the supposed differences between androgogy and pedagogy. Why, you may ask? It may be helpful to start with a definition of both terms:Pedagogy: The method and practice of teaching (…See More

Leigh Hynes commented on Jan-Marie Kellow's blog post UDL and Task Design
"Nicely summarised, Jan Marie!  Like you, I find it incredulous that many seem to not have any idea of WHY they want their learners to learn about specific topics, and they find it difficult to design a task/inquiry that will allow a wide…"

UDL and Task Design

Cross-blogged from Inquiring Mind.I listened to Lynne Silcock* last week talking about Universal Design for Learning (UDL). There are a few misconceptions around UDL with probably the most common one being that it is only for students with "special needs". The U in UDL however stands for universal, meaning it is for everyone. Lynne talked about two…See More

Ask Don't Tell

Posted on July 28, 2017 at 12:01 0 Comments

I hear a lot of questions from teachers about how they can develop learner agency and also how to foster an inquiry disposition in students. On the flipside, and surprisingly sometimes from the same teachers, I hear questions along the lines of:

What should I call my reading groups?

Our big topic next term is change. What should I do around this?

We're doing inquiry next term, what are some topic ideas?



I find myself saying 3…

If you were hoping to get other folks to contribute inquiry examples, I would recommend setting up a discussion. However, if you were going to share a number of your own inquiry examples, a blog post inviting sharing and contributions in the comments would be a good way to go :)
