...this is where we need to drive education from this point forward.
Laurie Guyon, Instructional Specialist
For Laurie, the proliferation of online information is one of the main reasons why inquiry-based learning is shaping the future of education. “It’s no longer a time for you [the teacher] to ask the basic question and for the student to memorize an answer and respond to it, because they can just Google an answer at this point.” Recap’s new tools put student questions first and drive instruction forward through a process of inquiry, supporting what Laurie sees as the new objective for teachers, “having the student come up with the question and then finding the answer for themselves and exploring it through conversation and collaboration, I think that’s the goal for us as educators moving forward.”
Laurie is creating a series of Journeys for some of her upcoming summer PD sessions to bring some of her previous teaching practices online and help train educators how to use the technology. Watch some of them by clicking on the icons below.
