The process of inquiry is a foundational piece of the Yukon Education Digital Literacy Framework. It is used to explore a topic, to solve a relevant problem, to create new knowledge, and to find a solution to a challenge. Inquiry continues throughout the life of a learner. Students use their current skills and knowledge to explore and learn. Inquiry adds to their life experience and competencies as they work through challenges and successes. Technology can facilitate and accelerate the process by enabling access to various sources of information, providing engaging tools for students to demonstrate their learning, and extending collaboration opportunities beyond the classroom. In the framework, inquiry represents the "moving gears" that sets the learning in motion.
