The feedback point is interesting. It is about information given to students relative to their learning goals. Feedback also means feedback for the teacher. What do we mean by student goals? What does this mean in relationship to curricula-as-plans. It suggests that teaching and learning are part of complex conversations (Pinar) and that the curricula-as-lived (Aoki) are important considerations.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 14, 2014 8:20 AM

Have you used Blabberize in your classroom? It is a free tool that allows you to upload an image and then create a talking picture. This post provides may suggestions on how to use it across disciplines as well as a video playlist that will showcase many examples of student work.

Below are a few ideas.

* Research a historical figure and use Blabberize to have them talk about their lives.

* Find a favorite quote from a fictional character and have the character say the quote (and explain it if necessary).

* Think about science and how you could use a talking image to explain an experiment, a change of phase, etc.

* Research an animal and have the animal talk about their habitat, what they eat, etc.

There are many ideas in this post and I suspect you can come up with more. Students need to able to create their own image (or find one that copyright free) and upload the image. It would be best if they wrote out what the image would say and practice it prior to recording using a computer.

The post also discusses how students could collaborate on projects, and notes that if you cannot record with a computer you can record using a phone. Find more information as well as  a link to a video tutorial in the post.

A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.
