Teaching resources: questioning

How have you used questioning in your classroom? On this step we’d like to see your teaching resources to show us and other teachers how you’ve implemented the ideas we’ve discussed this week.

Post your ideas on the Padlet for this step. Padlet is an online pin-board where you can upload your documents. You do not need to register an account to post to Padlet. Anything you do post is publicly accessible. If you are happy for us to included it in our video diary, please included “I consent to STEM Learning sharing” on your post. Guidance on how to use Padlet.

We’re hoping to see a wide range of subjects covered here, so it’s worth adding what topic and age you are teaching.

Resources shared on Padlet

Share your resource

  1. Upload your resource to the Teaching Resources (Questioning) Padlet
  2. Link to it from the discussion below saying how you used it.
  3. Review two other learner’s contributions, provide feedback or ask a question about how it worked. What might you change for your context?

Technical guidance

Creating a resource

If you wish to create and share your own resources, please note you will need to save as a PDF or image format. Word documents, PowerPoint files and Publisher files do not work well with Padlet.

  1. Create your resource. It could be hand-drawn, scanned, photographed or using whatever software works best for you.
  2. Save or export images in PNG or JPG file format. If using Word, PowerPoint or Publisher, save as PDF (you can do this using the Save As… option).

Note: You must have permission to use any third-party content. Do not include images of students or other people.

Uploading a resource

You have to create a Padlet post before you can upload. This is done by clicking an empty space on the Padlet wall or clicking the+ icon at the bottom right of the Padlet.

  1. Go to the Teaching Resources (Questioning) Padlet (you don’t need a password or account).
  2. Create a new post on the Padlet and click the upload file icon at the bottom of the new post.
  3. Click away from the post and the post will be saved to the Padlet.
