Identifying problems, brainstorming possible solutions, and conducting experiments are all steps in the process of inquiry learning. One school is taking the process even further, by adding video documentation to the mix. Thanks to a partnership with Crissy Field Center, environmental science students from Galileo Academy of Science & Technology in San Francisco have the opportunity to use video to capture data and present scientific findings. The video-production angle takes inquiry learning to a new level, bringing with it the potential to extend the end project far beyond the classroom walls. In this digital age, challenging students to develop some media production skills isn't a bad idea, either!
