Q101 is a great website that teachers might want to use to develop student questioning skills.
True learning comes from authentic curiousity. Too often we spend time having our kids answer questions and not enough enticing them to ask their own. Dan Meyer’s 101 Questions helps us alleviate this issue. He offers an array of enticing images that ignite inquiring minds. The simple interface presents a photo, prompts students to ask a question and then allows them to share these with one another. Authentic problems can be presented in this way and students can dig into real life inquiry. Imagine having your class discuss a single photo and then sharing the question in small groups or as a team. After coming up with a question, challenge them to figure out if they can answer or solve it. Ta-da! Authentic inquiry-based learning!
