Inquiry learning and the Australian Curriculum

  1. 1. Inquiry learning & the Australian Curriculum: A birds-eye view Dr Mandy Lupton Co-ordinator: Master of Education (teacher-librarianship) Queensland University of Technology mandy.lupton@qut.edu.au Twitter: LuptonMandy http://inquirylearningblog.wordpress.com/
  2. 2. birds-eye view http://www.research.qut.edu.au/
  3. 3. blog
  4. 4. inquiry learning vs information literacy Isn’t this what TLs have been doing all along…..?
  5. 5. inquiry skills vs inquiry learning Inquiry skills – information literacy, ICT literacy, information process, discipline specific skills (e.g. data gathering, maths, measurement, data analysis, presentation of data) Inquiry learning – principles, philosophical stance, pedagogy The Australian Curriculum deals with inquiry skills, NOT inquiry learning The inquiry skills strands are different in each subject area TL role in school: Birds-eye view - marry inquiry skills, CCT & ICT with inquiry learning Advocate for a whole school inquiry approach
  6. 6. problems Teachers may be implementing the Australian Curriculum without knowing how inquiry skills relate to inquiry learning Within ACARA there seems to be no recognition that many teachers (TLs, primary classroom teachers, heads of curriculum) need a bird’s eye view of the curriculum http://pixabay.com/en/parrot-ave-captivity-animals-birds-55293/
  7. 7. principles of inquiry learning natural universal authentic real word holistic constructivist outcomes empowerment life-long learning
  8. 8. pedagogy ‘any conscious activity by one person designed to enhance learning in another.’ (Watkins and Mortimer 1999, p. 3) Pedagogy is the way teachers organise learning, underpinned by the values and beliefs that they have regarding teaching and learning.
  9. 9. 3 elements of inquiry learning pedagogy questioning frameworks information literacy process action research cycle
  10. 10. questioning frameworks
  11. 11. types of questions essential/big questions evaluative/critical questions disciplinary questions (e.g. geographical questions, historical questions) process questions (relating to each stage of the information seeking process)
  12. 12. information literacy / information seeking process
  13. 13. steps in the process Big 6 ISP IP ILP Define Initiate Define Define Search Select Explore Formulate Collect Locate Select Locate Select/analyse Locate Use Present Organise Present Organise/synth esise Create/present Synthesise Evaluate Assess Assess Evaluate
  14. 14. Point of reflection Information literacy vs ICT literacy TL – ICT coordinator – eLearning coordinator – digital pedagogies coordinator Politics of having certain skills & knowledge in the ICT general capabilities vs in inquiry strands
  15. 15. action research cycle http://nursingplanet.com/Nursing_Research/action_research_nursing.html
  16. 16. scaffolding inquiry learning National Research Council (2000) Martin-Hansen (2002) Bell, Smetana & Binns (2005) Teacher- directed Confirmation •Results are known in advance Structured •Teacher question •Teacher prescribed procedure Teacher & student directed Guided •Teacher question •Student procedure Coupled • Progresses from guided inquiry into open inquiry Student- directed Open •Student question •Student procedure
  17. 17. disciplinary approaches to inquiry Science - scientific method, gathering data History - use of primary & secondary sources, constructing a narrative ( an account of the past) Geography - taking action at a personal, local, national or global level
  18. 18. how is inquiry represented in the Australian Curriculum? Inquiry skills are explicit in: Science F-12 History F-12 Geography F-12 Civics and Citizenship 3-10 (draft) Economics and Business 5-10 (draft) CCT (Inquiring, identifying, exploring and organising information and ideas) ICT (Investigating with ICT) Inquiry is hinted at in Mathematics: F-10 - Data representation and interpretation - Stats & probability Senior General Maths – statistical investigation
  19. 19. inquiry strands questions, information literacy, evaluating information
  20. 20. General Maths (senior) Unit 2 Univariate data analysis & the statistical investigation process “The statistical investigation process: review the statistical investigation process; for example, identifying a problem and posing a statistical question, collecting or obtaining data, analysing the data, interpreting and communicating the results. implement the statistical investigation process to answer questions that involve comparing the data for a numerical variable across two or more groups; for example, are Year 11 students the fittest in the school?” Also: Unit 3 Bivariate data analysis Unit 4 - The data investigation process
  21. 21. to come… Civics & Citizenship (draft): Inquiry and research: “inquiring and investigating information and ideas, using research skills in reviewing the literature & collecting data, questioning existing situations; preparing reports & critiquing research” (p. 10) Economics & Business (draft): Research, analysis & synthesis “identifying & clarifying ..from a variety of sources…selecting & organising economic & business info…interpreting & critiquing media messages” (p. 12)
  22. 22. problems Lack of alignment across year levels E.g. critical evaluation of information: Year 5 Geography Year 7 History Year 9 Science Terms: Science: pose, identify, formulate, construct History: pose, identify, formulate, frame Geography: pose, develop, formulate Scaffolding sequence is different e.g. Year 7 Science students 'individually plan', Year 9 Geography students' independently design' investigations
  23. 23. Science-History-Geo-CCT-ICT http://pixabay.com/en/seagull-bird-beach-bill-nature-183303/
  24. 24. Questioning: Sc, Hist, Geo, CCT
  25. 25. teacher or student directed
  26. 26. finding, selecting, accessing sources
