No. 2242: The Flying Circus of Physics - 77 views

  •  
    "That's how science works at its best. A question answered is a question killed, unless the answer leads to the kind of understanding from which new questions spring."

    Question - How many assignments in science, social studies, etc. end with an explicit list of new questions versus a project or test full of "answers"?

88 Teacher Interview Questions | Teacher Catapult - 91 views

  •  
    "Below are some sample teacher interview questions. These questions are quite common for high school, middle school, and elementary teacher interviews.  The difficulty level of these questions vary from easy to more difficult, but all of which are typical of a standard interview.  When given an interview as a teacher, it is important to realize that you can prepare for it just as you would for an important test.

What questions shall we ask? - 11 views

  •  
    A posting inspired by Patrick Rothfuss - 'It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer all he gains is a little fact but give him a question and he'll look for his own answers. That way, when he finds the answers they'll be precious to him, the harder the question, the harder we hunt, the harder we hunt the more we learn, an impossible question . . .'

What are questions? by Jason Fried of 37signals - 43 views

  • “Questions are places in your mind where answers fit. If you haven’t asked the question, the answer has nowhere to go. It hits your mind and bounces right off. You have to ask the question – you have to want to know – in order to open up the space for the answer to fit.”

      I really like this acknowledgement of the role questions play in our cognitive process. They aren't just the knowledge equivalent of a meal ticket...they're our dinner date!

  • Questions are your mind’s receptors for answers. If you aren’t curious enough to want to know why, to want to ask questions, then you’re not making the room in your mind for answers. If you stop asking questions, your mind can’t grow.

    Interesting statement about the role of questionging in acquiring new infomation. Your mind has to ask the question in order for your brain to have a place to hold onto the information.....interesting perspective. 
  •  
    I frequently say a similar thing when I talk about having students share their questions after a first reading. Their questions are such a great diagnostic of what they are ready to learn! Having students ask and answer their own questions not only gives them the info. they need now, but teaches them to be self-directed learners for a lifetime.

A driving question is the most important element of a PBL unit « EduRuminate - 1 views

  • Questions generated for research were based on the provocation and a focus question why do teens make stupid choices? As the questions generated for this task were generated by the students themselves they found them intrinsically motivating.
  • If you want students to have a voice and to have choice as well as developing a need to know about some area of content, then they should be generating their own questions.
  •  
    "While I agree all are important, I feel the most important factor in good PBL is a great driving question. If you find the right questions then most of the other factors identified are covered automatically. How do you generate a great question and who is the right person to generate that question?"
