Personal Inquiry and Online Research: Connecting Learners in Ways That Matter
Coiro, Julie; Castek, Jill; Quinn, David J.
Reading Teacher, v69 n5 p483-492 Mar-Apr 2016
This piece introduces a framework for how to envision Personal Digital Inquiry (PDI) in K-8 classrooms. To conceptualize what teaching and learning might look like in these classrooms, important practices are situated along a two-dimensional continuum of digital inquiry that varies in terms of levels of support and purposes of technology use. We then offer several examples of what teaching and learning within a PDI framework can look like; visions that move from teacher directed to student directed inquiry, always informed by purposeful choices about the role that technology plays along the way.
