Description

“In an era where personalized learning has often come to be associated with isolated one-to-one device technology, we thirst for this personal, constructivist, collaborative approach to digital inquiry.” —Stephanie Harvey

From Curiosity to Deep Learning: Personal Digital Inquiry in Grades K–5 reveals the powerful learning that results when you integrate purposeful technology into a classroom culture that values curiosity and deep learning. The centerpiece of this practical guide is Personal Digital Inquiry (PDI), a framework developed by Julie Coiro and implemented in classrooms by her co-authors, Elizabeth Dobler and Karen Pelekis. Clear, detailed examples offer ideas for K-5 teachers and school librarians to support their teaching.

Personal emphasizes the significance of the personal relationship between teachers and students, and the role that students have in the learning process.

Digital reflects the important role that digital texts and tools have come to play in both learning and teaching with inquiry.

Inquiry lies at the core of PDI, because learners grow and change with opportunities to identify problems, generate personal wonderings, and engage in collaborative dialogue, making learning relevant and lasting.

From Curiosity to Deep Learning: Personal Digital Inquiry in Grades K–5 shows you how to integrate inquiry with a range of digital tools and resources that will create a dynamic classroom for both you and your students.
