Text version of image in Olympics blog

This image is a photograph of teacher Vic Hygate with the following quotation written over the image: 

I think the biggest thing in inquiry, as a teacher, is it's changed the way we plan. So when I sit down with my team and we think about our inquiry, we think:

  • At the end of this, what is the understanding that we want our children to walk away with?
  • What do we want them to understand about their world, and why do we want them to understand it?

Because if we can't pin down that ‘this is what we want them to get from it’ and ‘this is why it's important; this is why they need to know that’, then there's really no point doing that inquiry.
