6 Great iPad Apps to Enhance Students Critical and Strategic Thinking Skills

6 Great iPad Apps to Enhance Students Critical and Strategic Thinking Skills | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
In today’s post we have curated for you a collection of some wonderful iPad games to boost students critical thinking skills and enhance their cognitive abilities. Playing these games, students will be able to engage with a variety of mental and abstract forms of reasoning where they will need to use their strategic and problem solving skills to find answers. While they are so much fun to play they are also a great way to help students approach the world from a critical thinking perspective. Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, April 20, 9:56 PM

Tables are turning. You’ve been tapped to be the teacher. But your “students” aren’t children. They’re professionals who want to know more about your area of expertise. It’s time to prepare. Here’s a roadmap for how to do it.
