Developing Powerful Questions

Managing Infoglut

The full version of this workshop takes three full days. This is a quick introduction meant to emphasize the power of questions.

The full version involves teams in the challenge of completing a full problem-solving investigation.

How can powerful questions and the use of Inspiration help students to manage infoglut?
The challenge during the gathering stage is to find some way to organize the findings.

The goal is coherence. We want students to arrange findings in ways that will cast light on the main question.
