Enquiring Minds – Inquiry Based Teaching Resource
Enquiring Minds explores how students’ ideas, interests and experiences can inform the content, processes and outcomes of teaching and learning in schools. At a time of curriculum reform in primary and secondary schools, Enquiring Minds provides guidance and research to help support schools through the process of change.
It shows how schools can develop enquiry-based approaches to the curriculum, teaching, and learning. This site features all of the materials, guidance, research evidence and resources produced during the project.
A place of note within the site would be the digital tools section. Digital tools are an integral part of the Enquiring Minds approach. They provide some examples of the kinds of new technologies that they think may benefit learners and teachers. The fantastic thing is that you can filter your search to what stage of inquiry you are up to.
Some of the digital tools available are quite amazing in what they can generate and produce. If you’re tired of the same old resources and want to incorporate some more ICT’s into your units – then this is the site for you!
