Inquiry-starters & PBL: Constructing Digital Narratives

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

Student inquiry can form a basis for the development of deep understanding of a content area that will result in students having a solid grasp of the “facts” of a subject. Through inquiry facts are learned, not by rote, but by the process of in-depth exploration resulting in greater retention. Students may also develop a passion for a subject that can last a lifetime. This session explores how to present content in a way that serves as a springboard for student inquiry. Learn how to craft “hooks,” scenarios and digital narratives that highlight those events or phenomena that can lead to good questions and research. Emphasizing the use of primary sources, digital resources, and a problem-based learning approach, this session offers the opportunity to enrich curricular units and integrate technology.
