Assignments That Promote Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus

Assignments That Promote Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
"Teaching students to think critically has long been a goal of education. Some, like the authors of the article highlighted here, think it’s a goal whose importance has increased. When today’s students graduate, they “must fend for themselves in an information environment characterized by a fragmented media establishment, blurb-driven news coverage, and an increasingly polarized political system. Given the normative bias, questionable logic, and contorted facts that people face these days, it is essential that students learn to discern and evaluate different types of information.” (p. 619)

The authors follow with another important point. Advice on assignments that promote critical thinking is pretty generic. “Most suggestions … offer vague advice: allow students to discuss matters, tell students they need to think critically, ask them to rewrite.” (p. 624) Concrete examples that have been used in the classroom and assessed for their effectiveness are not commonly available. And one goal of this article is to remedy that deficiency..."

JOTS v38n2 - Gender Difference of Confidence in Using Technology for Learning

Past studies have found male students to have more confidence in using technology for learning than do female students. Males tend to have more positive attitudes about the use of technology for learning than do females. According to the Women’s Foundation (2006), few studies examined gender relevant research in Hong Kong. It also appears that no studies have examined these gender differences in the perception of confidence in using technology for learning specifically in Hong Kong. The aim of this study was to examine gender difference regarding confidence toward using technology (e.g., AutoCAD, SPSS, Compiere, Arena, and programming language, such as C, Java, Visual Basic, etc.) for learning in higher educational institutions in Hong Kong. The study employed a survey methodology collecting 211 questionnaires from one specific university in Hong Kong. The findings confirmed that male students have more confidence in using technology for learning than do female students because gender imbalances in computing are socially constructed and not related to a learner’s innate ability. It is recommended that the universities should set up training courses for female students so these students can build confidence in using technology for learning.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, December 14, 2012 8:36 PM

I found that reviewing a new CMS helped me define exactly what I need in a course management system.  Eudstruct isn't there yet, but they are very open to critical comments that will help them improve the product.  


If you've never done a beta test, be prepared to react to an environment in a 'growth phase'.  I suggest you approach this test with an open mind. Create a list of features you want.  Explore the Course and Discussion elements.  Let Mark know what it would take to temp you into investing the time and effort needed to create and teach online classes using this CMS.   My guess?  Everyone will learn something by going through the process
