Enquiring Minds

Future Lab is a UK organization who look into developing new ways to deliver education and educational services. A few years ago they partnered with Microsoft to complete a study called Enquiring Minds. The aim of the project is to encourage teachers to use different language in their classroom along with project based learning to encourage students to enquire about their work and understand more about what is going on. The project encourages teachers to adopt the language and the methods and to introduce it to teachers in your school, where you can then introduce it to the administration (SLT) and become and enquiring minds school.

It’s worth a read even if you decide that it’s not for you, or for your classroom, it’s nice to see a different way of delivering content and of getting students engaged in their learning.
