In the modern era, what was adequate in industrialized education is no longer. Today’s workforce has no use for docile information retainers, trained only to memorize and regurgitate material. We need thoughtful thinkers, prepared to go outside of the box, solve problems, and continually learn.
To meet the demands of the ever-changing economy, educators are turning towards a new method: learning by inquiry.
Inquiry-Based learning is not about getting the “right” answer, but instead, how you get to it. Rather than stressing the accumulation of information, inquiry-based learning focuses on developing inquiry skills and curiosity in students.
Inquiry-based learning turns away from the one-size-fits-all approach and opens the doors of creativity and playfulness in education. Hands-on experimentation and life-like visuals can teach students to question not only what is in front of them, but how things functions, what they do, and more.
The process of learning by inquiry allows students to question, explore, and discover. Find out more about inquiry-based learning in with zSpace.
