Jennifer Schwelik’s session, “GO!INFOhio: Ask, Act, Achieve Step-by-Step Help for Inquiry”
Description: Big research projects can be daunting, especially for students who are just learning the skills they need to work through a long-term project. This new INFOhio website guides middle and high school students to tools and databases to help them learn how to use the tools necessary for thorough academic research. Join us to learn more about this site that helps students excel at research, and helps teachers introduce inquiry-based learning to their students.
Jennifer hopes attendees will be able to: Create collaborative inquiry-based lessons.
Create lessons incorporating research databases as critical houses of information.
Use open-source tools for research such as Zotero.
Use open-source tools for presentations such as VoiceThread.
Use assessment tools to determine student learning growth such as TRAILS.
