Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Discovering Blended Learning | 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.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 38 Ideas to Use Google Drive in Class | Discovering Blended Learning | Scoop.it

This is the third post in a series of posts aimed at helping teachers and educators make the best out of Google Drive in classrooms. This series comes in a time when teachers are getting ready to start a new school year and hopefully will provide them with the necessary know-how to help them better integrate Google Drive in their teaching pedagogy. The two previous posts featured in this series were entitled consecutively "New Google Drive Cheat Sheet" and "Teachers Visual Guide to Google Drive Sharing". Today's post covers some interesting ideas and tips on how to go about using Google Drive in your classroom. This work is created by Sean Junkins from SeansDesk.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: What Teachers Need to Know about Depth of Knowledge (DOK) Framework

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: What Teachers Need to Know about Depth of Knowledge (DOK) Framework | Discovering Blended Learning | Scoop.it

Depth of Knowledge is a conceptual framework and a vocabulary reference developed by Webb (1977) to help with analyzing the cognitive demands and expectations students are to meet when engaged in Common Core learning. DOK categorizes the curricular activities into four major groups with each one of them corresponding to a particular cognitive level it addresses.

When writing an IEP for a student, are you considering their career path- especially if they are at the secondary level? School social workers teach these skills everyday.  Are they appropriately identified and articulated?

SageRave of Get Custom Content's curator insight, May 27, 2:15 PM

Alot of these skills cannot be taught. Your B.A., MBA., or Ph.D.may not give you the edge you thought they might.

The Future of Video Is About Learning How To Tell Great Emotional Stories

"...interviews with people from Vimeo, Adobe, Blackmagic design, Motionographer, Cinema 4D, Sehsucht, Mashable, Digital Bolex and many more."

Robin Good's curator insight, April 15, 2014 6:52 AM



In this SxSW set of video interviews captured by Wipster (a collaborative video review and approval service) with some of the "experts" in the online video publishing field, you can hear most of what you already know and expect from the future of video: 4K, real-time editing, effects, 3D, small screens and more. 

What instead emerges as the real challenge though, is to realize that no matter what kind of tools and services you use, the difficult part is to have a good story and to learn how to tell it on video.


Tools are great and easy indeed, but they don't make anyone a capable storyteller instantly. This is what we really need to work on.


No need to view all 12+ minutes of the video. Just check the first and the last interview in this clip and you will get the real meat.  



Insightful. Informative. 7/10

Understanding the structure of a URL helps students understand how information is stored and accessed online—it is one of the basic skills at the foundation of information and digital literacy. Teaching the ins and outs of servers and subdomains can be challenging, which is why we’ve been hard at work creating simple and engaging video tutorials to help you teach these imperative skills to students.
