Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Tools for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
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.

What type of brand resonates with you? | Tools for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
Visual identity is a powerful tool that enables a brand to differentiate itself from its competitors while simultaneously expressing a point of view and unique personality traits. Whether in the process of developing new or augmenting existing visual identities, typography often takes a back seat to logo design, or choice of color and imagery. However, typography plays a fundamental role in the development of a brand’s perception and should be paid as much attention as other elements of the visual expression. When making decisions about the typography of your brand, keep these considerations in mind:

REVIEW: 3 Best Free Flashcard Apps for Students | Edudemic | Tools for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

: According to an article on Time.com about the best and worst learning techniques, active learning methods (e.g. writing) are far more useful for long-term retention than passive learning methods (e.g. highlighting or underline words).

One of the best ways? Surprisingly enough: flashcards, according to research from the Association of Psychological Science.

Giovanni Sonego's curator insight, July 7, 4:52 AM

Un gioco lanciato da Google che mette alla prova la conoscenza della geografia. 

Viene posta una domanda, che ha come risposta una località. Google più o meno fa vedere una porzione di mappa che comprende anche la città/risposta. Per rispondere si prende il PIN e lo si posiziona nel luogo corretto. 

Molto divertente, ma ci sono due difetti che spero vengano presto corretti. Innanzitutto ci sono un po' troppe domande sulle vicende inglesi. Ma che cavolo ne so io, di quale città era Duca un certo ceffo dell'inizio del '900? Suvvia... 

E poi, anche google, maledetti, posizionano la mappa in modo che la città/risposta si trovi in un raggio di 1000 miglia (o 1600 km e rotti). Ma si può? Ragazzi (dico a Google) guardate che il sistema metrico internazionale è quello decimale basato sul metro, mica su miglia, pietre, piedi, pertiche, pollici e pezzoloni!

How technology rewrites literature

How technology rewrites literature | Tools for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

Fom typing on a rolling stream of white space to editing in a cloud, shifts in hardware have altered the way writers research, draft, refine and, ultimately, conceive of their work. The basic mechanism may stay the same, but new tools have led to new relations between authors and the words they use. With the internet, the barrier between the writer and the world has become as thin as skin.
