An Enquiry ‘Product’ from the Social Experiment Day in July 2010

Last July we held a social experiment. Thirteen professional educators came together to undertake their own authentic enquiry. We all went up to Brandon Hill and had to select an object, artefact or place which was of interest to us.  We worked through the nine processes of authentic enquiry and on day two, each person had to present their new knowledge and reflect on their learning.  This slide show was Tim Small’s enquiry product.
