Inquiry and Discussion: Increasing Student Engagement and Achievement with Technology and Literacy

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

Tired of facing students’ blank stares? Teacher-centered discussions getting stale? Using effective questioning and critical thinking techniques with carefully selected technology creates lively discussions and, as a result, positively impacts students’ learning. These strategies encourage independence and discovery that even your most reluctant and quietest students will love. We include key ideas inspired by Right Question Institute (Question Formulation Technique, QFT), Stephen Brookfield (author of ‘Teaching for Critical Thinking’) and Susan Cain (author of ‘Quiet’).
