Experience the Question Formulation Technique: a simple, powerful strategy that can spark curiosity and deepen remote learning by teaching students to ask their own questions.
Participants will learn about the QFT and how it came to be. It’s a technique meant to help all people gain access to the fundamental skill of question asking through a step by step, completely learner-led process that can spark curiosity and collaboration. Participants will have the chance to see the QFT in action using a scientific phenomenon as a prompt for asking, improving upon, and prioritizing scientific questions. They’re welcome to follow along to experience the process. Science teacher Nicole Bolduc will take participants through samples of student work to show how she uses the QFT in her classroom to drive NGSS storylines and how she’s adapted it to a digital environment.
