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

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | early childhood education and more | 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.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 13, 3:08 AM

Kathy Schrock has been looking ahead with technology and a librarian's instinct for organization for years. She's still hitting it out of the park.

Assessment Feedback via Screencast — Examples

Assessment Feedback via Screencast — Examples | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

I wrote a blog post about using Jing to provide assessment feedback to my students. A few readers got back to me and requested examples. In class, I explained to my students that I had blogged about what I was doing, and that some other educators were interested in seeing some examples. I selected a few to share with you here. These are fairly strong essays.The goal of posting the work here is to demonstrate the use of screencasting as an assessment tool. It’s powerful.

The originalPDI chart has been downloaded over tens of thousands of times around the world. We received feedback and input from educators who helped us revise the chart so it clarifies the differences between the terms. We welcome your feedback and to share your stories of personalizing learning.

 

If you have our older version of the chart, please replace it with this version.
