Inquiry and the IB
Stuents do not learn by doing.
Rather, they learn by
on what they have done.
Inquiry involves students in observing and exploring a particular phenomenon, event or artifact to raise questions of interest. In inquiry situations, the process of seeking answers to questions usually results in expanding students understanding of a concept.
For what students come to know and to be able to do depends on the range of activities they are asked to engage in, on the challenges that these activities present, on the artifacts available to mediate their activities, and on the assistance they receive in meeting these challenges, both from teachers and peers and from more distant experts beyond the classroom.
