Learning from a question week: Day 3 – In the lab

Today is our third day in answering our questions and we returned to the computer lab to carry on with our research. I noticed that the students were generally choosing the first Google result of their query and accepting that as ‘the’ answer. This promoted a discussion on the value of multiple resources and viewpoints, especially in response to an ‘open’ question. This also necessitated a quick review on gathering and writing notes, as well as citing sources.

The students were focused on their work and wanted to share what they were learning with me. It was great to learn more from each question, and they started to see the value of sharing this with the larger world once we post our learning on our blogs.
