Using Multimedia to Teach Inferencing Skills

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the most valuable skills our students need to develop is the ability to make careful observations based on what they see and observe. These are based on factual evidence and key details. Often times, the brain automatically jumps to conclusions based on previous life-experiences, so you must teach students to eliminate these biases and focus on the difference between an observation and an inference. Using different multimedia including texts, images, videos, and audio, teachers can promote meaningful conversations in which students will have to use higher level thinking such as reasoning and proof to justify their claims. Come prepared to learn an easy way to both engage and build students' scientific inquiry.
