12 Ways To Use Padlet In Your Classroom Tomorrow!

12 Ways To Use Padlet In Your Classroom Tomorrow! | Arts |
Let me introduce you to one of my new go-to tech tools: Padlet. It's free, it's easy-to-use, and it's awesome. Oh, and did I mention... no signup needed? Padlet is essentially a digital poster that can be individually or collaboratively created. Simply visit the website and click "Create" to get started building your "wall" today. Then,…

The Padlet is good to use when all the students have an internet connected device, a tablet, for example, and they have go in for audience polls, and short answers. The results and the responses can be seen by all on a screen in the classroom. All our classrooms have wifi and projectors which can be connected to laptops.

Padlet, c'est un chouette outil. A utiliser, surtout aussi pour son aspect visuel.
Leslie Varela's curator insight, November 14, 11:47 PM
In my opinión this interesting tool contributes to create a good atmosphere where students can interact and share their knowledge and investigations with the whole class. Personally, I would like to use this tool in three different ways: 1) Create a feedback wall where students can post suggestions and express concerns anonymously. 2) Build a matching exercise on the wall and have students rearrange the photos and text to solve, and 3) Create a digital map and have students post their findings about new cultures. The main idea is to teach the topics using other alternatives in order to motivate students participation.

What are 'thinking skills' and can we teach them?

What are 'thinking skills' and can we teach them? | Arts |
It’s tempting to believe that if we teach children how to think, then they’ll think better. After all, when we teach children to read, then they read better and when we teach them to juggle then they get better at juggling. Why should thinking be any different?

Well, first we have to identify what we mean by thinking. In What Every Teacher Needs To Know About Psychology we say this:

This article is different from the one previously scooped because of two prevalent reasons. One of these being it is written by a doctor in education and the other being what ideas are being presented. The doctor first begins by defining what 'thinking' is and then using these definitions he goes on to list the actions that come about when 'thinking'. These include: organizing information, linking ideas together, analyzing, deciding, and so on. The author then explains how these things are carried out based on the knowledge one has and we unconsciously do much of it without realizing it. So, in contrast to the previous article the author in this article discusses what thinking skills we already have and  can improve upon, while the other article addresses the lack of skill when thinking, learning, and acting upon uncertainty.
