In the summer of 2013, I started using Evernote to collect and curate resources for planning and pursuing inquiry learning, as I blogged in the posts, Inquiry with Evernote vol 1 and Inquiry with Evernote vol 2 . Since then, my collection of notes has expanded. More importantly, the channels from which I collect these images, videos, and articles have become much more diverse and poignant. Most importantly, I am slowly refining my tagging strategies to make the collection more conceptually connected and social and environmental action oriented.
Now, I would like to introduce the Inquiry Learning Resources Project. The effort to build a digital notebook of inquiry provoking notes continues, but I have expanded the project to social media.
The project’s primary home is the public notebook, Inquiry Learning Resources
. Feel free to join, search, and utilize it for your classroom or personal inquiries.
This project was inspired by a desire to organize the fascinating content I discovered on Tumblr. Resources are shared on the Inquiry Learning Resources
blog and using the tag #inquirylearning
. That blog accepts submissions, so if you’re on Tumblr, feel free to contribute.
I set up the account @provokinquiry
to share resources on Twitter, and also using the #inquirylearning
tag. Hopefully it will also be a great way to raise awareness for the project.
My immediate goal is to get in the habit of updating regularly, although completing projects is always a challenge due to the crunch of the school year before January. Hopefully, more inquiry educators will want to collaborate to help expand the project further!
