Questioning Techniques that bring about Change

Spotlight Educator: Kim Darche, Digital Learning Coach, SD113A
Day/Time: Wednesday - 10:50am - 11:40am
Audience: K - Post Secondary
Tech Level: All
Strand: Innovative Instruction
Room: Grand Ballroom C

What are the questions we ask in our classrooms? Are we supporting our student learning by teaching students how to ask questions during genius hour or in Makerspace or a book group? The fine art of asking questions which once seemed as simple as A,B,C at the age of 3 somehow loses its intensity and vigor as we grow older. Let's start a renaissance of questioning within our own craft! In this "minds-on" session, learners will ask the questions, explore how to leverage responses and build upon them as we flex our questioning muscles! We will modify traditional discussion techniques to understand innovative phrasing and practices that support a culture of moonshot thinkers.
