Creating a Culture of Inquiry in the Classroom

It is essential in this time to change the ways we teach– whether we work with children or adults. They need the opportunity to develop skills needed to scrutinize, dig deeper, and ask hard questions! In the process, perhaps they avoid taking information they receive at face value, and can better understand the importance of scientific, evidence-based approaches. And these skills and mindsets prepare them to be future researchers!

Social Media or Social Web?

I contributed an article, “Social Media or Social Web?” As part of a special issue of a UK online magazine called Discover Society. The special issue is about “Social Science & Social Futures: Fast Scholarship, Emerging Technologies & The Future Of Inquiry.” You might find the editors’ article of interest: Mark Carrigan is a prolific writer and one of the leading thinkers about social media and academic life.
