Question Formulation Technique (QFT)

The QFT is a simple but rigorous step-by-step process designed to help students formulate, work with, and use their own questions.

The process is as follows (working in groups):

  • question focus - this could be a photo, video or text;
  • create questions - the group creates the questions, not the teacher;
  • prioritize questions - choose the most important questions;
  • reflect as a small group
  • gallery walk/report back to view other groups’ questions

This could possibly be combined with Google Classroom:

  • as a Question activity;
  • or by making a class slide show: slide 1 is the question focus, then each group has a slide to record their questions, deleting the non-prioritised ones after discussion.
