10 Great Critical Thinking Activities That Engage Your Students

10 Great Critical Thinking Activities That Engage Your Students | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
How can students own their learning with critical thinking activities they’ll really love? Allowing our students to take stands on issues that matter to them engages the classroom in a way that fosters great critical thinking. Who? What? Why? When? Where? How? When they can relate these questions to themselves and exercise personal self-reflection, we build community and “heart-centered” learning.

What's Next for the LMS?

What's Next for the LMS? | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
If current LMS designs are tied to a teaching and learning model that is being replaced with new approaches, then what should come next? Because the successor to the LMS needs to support a very different model of learning, it seems unlikely that we can get there by updating the current LMS with incremental improvements

Nik Peachey's curator insight, April 10, 2:24 PM

Yes. The current LMS model seems to be based upon the 'tech as homework' model of blended learning, whereas nowadays the blend is happening in the classroom and even in the environment.

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
When students learn to reflect meaningfully about their learning, they can participate in a dialogue with the teacher that allows them to work together to determine the actual level of mastery. No longer working in isolation, the teacher can now adequately discuss depth of learning, thereby helping students to communicate particular knowledge that is too often absent from their final products. After students provide the teacher with thorough information about their process, the teacher is in a better position to assess student learning.

Supporting Deeper Learning in the Classroom

Supporting Deeper Learning in the Classroom | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
For today’s students to effectively compete in the global workforce, they must develop the skills, understandings, and mindsets necessary to prepare them for the careers and challenges of tomorrow. This means more than learning to read and write – it means being able to master academic content and apply that knowledge across contexts in a meaningful way.
