A growing tenet of innovative and thoughtful learning environments is to determine how to provide learners the time, confidence and mental space to create meaning. Students making sense of information is not a new idea, but the advent of the Internet has created a sense of urgency for students to become critical and engaged members of our global society, who ask the right questions, listen intently, intellectually filter information, and invite further discussion, in order to bring people and ideas together.
Back by demand and inspired by Danielson’s Framework for Teaching, the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile and Alan November’s Six Questions for Transformational Learning, this session is specifically designed to consider effective questioning techniques and student-led discussion strategies as vehicles for advancing student learning, rather than simply assessing or checking their understanding.
Join us as we address the urgency to explore strategies and share resources for developing questioning techniques and learning routines to:                                                               
  • make students’ questions and thinking more accessible for exploring, discussing, synthesizing and connecting to the world
  • enhance student-led discussions where all students are engaged in the conversation and thinking      
  • nurture a learning community that fosters inquiry, communication and connections
