Taking Inquiry Strategies to the Next Level: Developing Student Thinking with Mobile Learning 

This session will provide an overview of specific ways teachers can incorporate questioning strategies and inquiry experiences using the latest iPad Apps and G-Suite.  This work will be guided by Common Core Standards ELA standards, Next Generation Science standards and other inquiry-focused practices. Specifically, we will introduce how different iPad Apps, Google Apps and Extensions can be leveraged to implement these learning experiences.  Further, we will demonstrate how these strategies along with the use of technology provide ways for educators to check for understanding and modify instruction.  Our goal of this session to have educators leave with specific strategies for helping students to develop questions, apply content specific knowledge, and support the synthesis of content knowledge.
