How The iPad Can Promote The Development Of Non-Cognitive Skills

How The iPad Can Promote The Development Of Non-Cognitive Skills | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Although there are many reasons to use the iPads in the classroom, the development of noncognitive skills is one the educators should consider as well with the implementation of the device. Since the early 1980s, educators and employers across many disciplines have stressed the importance of noncognitive skills although the focus of most educational research has been dedicated to the relationship between cognitive skills and student achievement.

 

However, recent studies have demonstrated that noncognitive skills might be as important – or even more so – as cognitive skills in determining educational outcomes. Howard Gardner has gone even further by suggesting that in an increasingly interdependent globalized world “our survival […] may depend on the cultivation of this pentad of mental dispositions.”"
