The Inquiry Process
Transcript of The Inquiry Process
The process of inquiry is a foundational piece of the
Digital Literacy Framework.
Inquiry is used to explore a topic, solve a relevant problem, create new knowledge, and find a solution to a challenge.
Inquiry is a process that continues throughout the
life of a learner. Students use their current skills
and knowledge to explore and learn.
Inquiry adds to a student's life experience and competencies as they work through
challenges and successes.
Technology can facilitate and accelerate the process of inquiry by enabling access to various sources of information, providing engaging tools for students to demonstrate their learning,
and extending collaboration opportunities
to beyond the classroom.
In the framework, inquiry represents the "moving gears" that set the learning in motion.
What does inquiry look like?
The process of inquiry moves through a series of 5 steps:
1. Question & Plan
2. Gather & Make Sense
3. Produce to Show Understanding
The following definition of digital literacy resonated with the digital literacy working group:
Digital literacy is “the interest, attitude and ability of individuals to appropriately use digital technology and communication tools to access, manage, integrate, analyze and evaluate information, construct new knowledge, create and communicate with others”.
Students learn with technology by investigating, exploring and inquiring about topics that are authentic and relevant in the learner’s community. This is represented in the circular inquiry process that is in constant movement at the center of the framework. At the base of the framework is the Citizenship and Safety piece. Through Authentic Inquiry and purposeful learning experiences, students shape their understanding of digital citizenship and demonstrate safe practices. At the core of the model are ICT Skills and Concepts necessary for engaging with diverse technologies.
Enjoy the process of inquiry with your students as they prepare to meet their 21st Century futures. Bon voyage!
