International Community of Enquiry

What is the International Community of Enquiry?  

P4C schools around the world exchange enquiry stimuli and share the questions and concepts that come out of the enquiry with each other online. SAPERE started this pilot initiative in the summer 2016.

Which schools are involved?       

Enquiry stimuli that the schools used:

Gym Jumping Boy for ages 9 – 11 (A Japanese boy age 4 attempts to jump large gymnastics horse, and gets some help from his friends)

Beegu for ages 4 – 7 (Animation based on the book Beegu by Alexis Deacon)

More about the schools involved:
