The socratic method problem based and independent learning

The Socratic Method: Problem Based and Independent Learning

The combination of the Socratic Method and well thought out questions sets students up for successful learning experiences. When students are asked questions that challenge the way they perceive a specific topic or issue, they are forced to independently search for the answers they need.

Socratic questioning also lends itself to problem based learning through group or peer discourse, debate, and research. With the complex questions of the Socratic style, groups must question each other and their findings to come to an agreed upon solution to the proposed problem.


Summary

Summary

The use the best possible questions, ones that forces students to go beyond a “yes” or “no” answer leads students on a discovery of new knowledge through independent research and discovery. These questions usually center on major concerns, problems, and interests of the student while also spurring new thoughts and questions in the student. This will provide the momentum for continuous need for knowledge.

According to Paul, Martin, and Adamson (1989), Questions define tasks, express problems and delineate issues. Answers on the other hand, often signal a full stop in thought. Only when an answer generates a further question does thought continue its life as such. This is why it is true that only students who have questions are really thinking and learning.
