Why It's Time To Start Teaching Students How To Think - Edudemic

Why It's Time To Start Teaching Students How To Think - Edudemic | eLearning & Education | Scoop.it
As an elementary teacher, I can’t help but notice that children today want quick answers and do not take the time to think things through.

Kymberley Pelky's insight:

In an age where children expect everything to be instant, their responses become the same without taking time to process the information first.

We need parent buy - in on this at our school. They are just interested I rewards, not process or  hard work.

Analysis and synthesis take time...and are critical to problem solving, as we all know. How to teach these higher level thinking processes is key to helping students become successful independent learners.

K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy - Edutopia

K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy - Edutopia | eLearning & Education | Scoop.it

"In this six-part series, I will highlight apps useful for developing higher order thinking skills in grades K-5 classrooms. Each list will highlight a few apps that connect to the various stages on Bloom's continuum of learning. Given the size and current exponential growth of the app market, I will also assist educators in setting criteria necessary to identify apps that maintain the integrity of teaching for thinking."

Great information!
Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, June 21, 2014 6:23 PM

This looks like a great series - I reviewed a few of the posts and they are very well organized. Each one provides a summary review of a component of Bloom's Taxonomy and an explanation of connections with apps. Then there are specific examples of apps provided. A great resource for diversifying your instruction.

La revisión de este material facilitará la elaboración de la Secuencia Didáctica.  No hay duda que la taxonomía de Bloom sigue vigente

Fascinating and useful developments, but this is worth looking at for the Dynavox Eyemax alone.  The ability to successfully communicate must lift a great burden off those unable to articulate or gesture their needs.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 14, 2013 10:54 AM

This shows hoe growing technology increases to help people with and without disabilities. Compared to Rhodes that has limited access and help for the dissabled, these inventions offer great support overcoming these obstacles. A story can be done on why these objects are not made readily available to more disabled people.
