Description - Inquiry-Based Learning by Teresa Coffman
Inquiry-Based Learning: Designing Instruction to Promote Higher Level Thinking focuses on learning and pedagogy around inquiry using technology as a cognitive tool. Specific inferences and applications of learning through an inquiry approach are explored and illustrations are drawn from educational settings.
This third edition text explores realistic approaches and encourages reflective practice through the creation of instruction around a variety of curricular topics, to include digital citizenship, information literacy, social media, telecollaborative activities, problem-based learning, blended learning, and authentic assessments. Emphasis is placed on developing 21st century skills within a thinking curriculum.
Readers consider a scenario that continues throughout each chapter in the design and development of inquiry lessons. Chapter reflections and skill building exercises assist readers in developing competencies around the inquiry process as well as the pedagogy required in using this approach with authentic tools.
