Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Elearning & ELT | 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.

Teaching With QR Codes

Teaching With QR Codes | Elearning & ELT | Scoop.it

"So, what are QR Codes, you ask? Well, you know what barcodes are, like when you buy something at the store and the clerk scans a code to enter the item and amount into the till? The QR (Quick Response) Code is kind of like that, except that it offers much more information. Quite often the QR Code will give you a link to a website, or a text message, image, etc. To read the QR Code, you need to install a QR Code Reader onto your device. There are many available for free. I like using i-nigma, seen below. Simply open the app, point it at a QR Code and your device will do the rest. Try it with the code above. It should take you back to this blog."

K-12 Virtual Schools: Is anybody learning anything?

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 23, 2015 4:15 PM

If you are an online k-12 teacher, or hope to be one: READ this article.


Reporter Darren Samulesohn provides a non-partisan overview of k-12 virtual schooling.  This is a refreshingly in depth story about the recent history of k-12 online schools. You'll also get a good sense of current political, economic and educational realities in this booming field.


There are a number of researchers who would contest the claim that "Nobody knows how well it works".  But it is more than clear that the results are mixed and far from complete.
