Inquiry Research & Website Evaluation: Due Friday, 19th Sept



Purpose: to research for our systems inquiry topic and to find and share relevant, useful sources.


– Using the website evaluation tool shared with you, evaluate three websites that you have looked at, used or considered using in your inquiry research. Remember, they don’t necessarily have to be great, that’s why we’re evaluating them.

– On your blog, write a post about your inquiry including: your focus, your big question, a brief statement as to why you chose this topic (what interested you, what are you hoping to find out), some interesting/surprising/unusual/cool things you have found out so far and a link to your website evaluation document explaining why it is important to evaluate sources.

Asking the big questions.

This term students are taking even more of an active role in their learning and developing their own inquiry based around evaluating systems, models, plans and products. This is so broad! Like our surrealism work, we’ve started with some class thinking time to brainstorm ‘ungoogleable’ questions that could have many different answers (first two slides, the questions for the third are still to come) as well as challenging ourselves with divergent thinking by free association style brainstorming about a random topic and then making connections and extending our thinking down different paths (fourth & fifth slide).

What questions or ideas do these things make you think of?
