Crafting Questions that Drive Projects

June 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Presenter: Tony Vincent

Not only do projects motivate students because they can be an authentic use of technology, they also facilitate active learning, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. Tony Vincent showcases several inspiring projects. Each project begins with a driving question—an open-ended question that focuses the project by creating interest and curiosity. Writing effective driving questions is surprisingly challenging. You want the question to be irresistible, which means it cannot sound like a test question. Tony Vincent gives strategies for refining driving questions that lead to student-focused inquiry during project-based learning, genius hour, or passion projects. The group will write and share some of their ideas for driving questions.
