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.

Interactive video platforms are the future of online learning

Interactive video platforms are the future of online learning | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Despite the leaps in technology that surround us, online learning is still not the success story that it should be. The old-school approach continues to produce better results. With today’s technology, there is no reason online learning can’t be revamped to compete with its traditional counterpart. Interactive video platforms can indeed enhance students’ experiences and increase engagement and retention.

When so many new technologies promise to transform education - what role is left to the teacher?  Why is the teacher still important?  This powerful clip effectively presents compelling arguments for the importance of teaching students in a 'social' classroom setting - with reference to 'how' students learn; making the best of all types of tools to aid what goes on 'in the student's head'.
