York Region DSB 2013 – 2014

YRSDB Project Presentation 

Project Goal: Using the front matter of the revised Social Studies curriculum Document as our common content, what is the impact of a collaborative online community in assisting us to implement inquiry-based learning in our classrooms?

Our Goal: 

  • Telling our stories / journey using Google sites
  • Hoping to answer how we can begin to implement the introduction of the new Social Studies Curriculum through the lens of inquiry
  • Looking at how an online collaborative community supports teachers with its implementation
  • Looking to see how we can document the transition from teacher-directed learning to student-based inquiry
  • Keeping in mind how assessment fits into the inquiry framework
