Dr. Tim Sprod - Philosophical Community of Inquiry at Scienceworks
As part of the 2018 Victorian Association of Philosophy in School's conference, we held an In-action Day at Scienceworks. This day had students from grades 4-6 participate in philosophical communities of inquiry with expert facilitators, including Dr. Tim Sprod. The first CoI involved students investigating artificial intelligence systems and CSIRAC, the world's fourth computer, at Scienceworks. The second CoI was held after a planetarium show detailing Earth's place in the universe as a stimulus for discussion.
