Three Brain Teasers to Spur Logical Thinking and Collaboration - Mindshift

Three Brain Teasers to Spur Logical Thinking and Collaboration - Mindshift | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
There are lots of ways to stretch student thinking and get them talking to each other about ideas. One fun way is through riddles that require inductive reasoning, critical thinking and hopefully some good collaboration around student ideas. The three brain teasers below created by TED-Ed have fun visuals and include an explanation at the end. All the videos also include lesson plan ideas to deepen the conversation and start discussion.

This article and infographic share over two dozen ways to help your students be innovative thinkers.
Stewart-Marshall's curator insight, May 15, 8:21 AM
Innovative thinking in students will flower when we design classrooms that absolutely can’t survive without it. Same with critical thinking, self-direction, creativity, and so on. Until we reach that point, it’s on the shoulders of the classroom teacher to tease it out of students through a combination of inspiration, modeling, scaffolding, and creating persistent opportunity.
Emma Vanstone's curator insight, May 15, 7:05 PM
This is a really practical short article focusing on the 'how' of incorporating innovative thinking in the classroom.  I liked that it contained lots of suggestions and 'verbs' to create lesson objectives or learning targets; essential questions or understandings for units; assessment questions; scoring guides or rubrics for projects, for choice boards for differentiated learning, and so on.

Aurasma and ChatterPix: A fun way to bring photos to life with augmented reality!

Aurasma and ChatterPix: A fun way to bring photos to life with augmented reality! | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

"In Science, my class has been investigating paper and its properties. One of these invesigations involved writing on two different types of paper and then talking about which was easier/harder to write on and why. I decided to have the kids take photos of each other and then use ChatterPix to add their voices to the photos explaining their observations. Once I had done that, I used the ChatterPix videos as overlays in Aurasma and voila! You have an Aura where a photo begins to talk when scanned. To see how to create Auras using Aurasma visit my post on Aurasma here."
