As part of our 21st Century School Programe with the British Council programme, we are organising a series of Education dialogues, which will help you connect with colleagues from Albania and Kosovo and share your experience.
On June30, 2020 we will organize a live session on the topic: "Using high level questions (for deep thinking) in classroom".
Using questions is the best tool to foster thinking in the clasroom. Using high level questions enables students to think deeply, fosters imagination and creativity. The clasroom where these questions are being used is characterised by fruitful discusion and brings creative ideas. This is why it is highly important for the teachers to demonstrate skills to use such questions. Moreover, they should create the appropriate environment in their clasrroms, so students may practice high level questions by themselves. This is how they learn to come out with creative solutions in different life situations.
In the first part of the session there will be a conceptual presentation of the diffrerent level questions, related to the levels of thinking. After that, a model of using the high level question in a specific topic will be provided to participants. They will have the opportunity to share their ideas and experineces on different level questions. In addition they will have the opportunity to make questions about the topic, namely using of high level questions in classroom.
