πŸ’¬ 12 ‘Lesson Hacks’ to Nurture Inquiry

Replied to 12 'Lesson Hacks' to Nurture Inquiry by Kath Murdoch (Kath Murdoch)
Inquiry classrooms (and inquiry teachers) are constructed day by day, session by session. Being conscious of the choreography of our teaching and the degree to which it amplifies or diminishes inquiry is a powerful way to build culture over time. These β€˜hacks’ are simple but by making one change, we can gain insights to which we have been previously blind.
Great post Kath. I think that for some the idea of Inquiry can be so daunting, there are however so many starting points. Your use of the work ‘hack’ reminds me of a quote from a RN Future Tense podcast from a few years ago looking at civic hacking:

Hacker culture is about doing clever, creative things with technology; basically coming up with ways to apply our technical skills for the benefit of society.

I am also reminded of hearing Will Richardson talking about changing 10% at a time. Although he was talking about becoming a ‘connected educator’, the same premise applies here. If a teacher were to apply all 12 hacks, I think that they would be well on the way to changing the whole of their classroom.
