6 Questions Every Critical Thinker Should Ask ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ESL, Secondary Education, Common Core | Scoop.it

They key to critical thinking is the ability to pose challenging and provocative questions to yourself. To think critically is to delve deeper into those hidden layers of meaning and dissect the message in a comprehensive way. Of course, critical thinking is a very important skill mandated by the cognitive demands of a highly conceptual era.

Chris Carter's comment, December 14, 2014 9:46 PM
Thank you Suvi and Dean for spreading the good word. There is a good deal of smoke in the education community concerning this discussion. Some articles based on unscientific, deeply flawed studies have created a lot of buzz. What I see bubbling up through more rigorous studies is this common thread: When kids simply take dictation, either typing or handwriting, then their brains do not retain the information. It is all short-term memory. When kids redact, apply their own coding, modify the material, then the information is much more likely to be retained. At this point, kids are actually interacting with and engaging the content.

10 tendencias para a aprendizagem mista

Minha tendencia favoita  é :

Aumentar o engajamento e motivacao do aprendiz.


e a sua ?

#avancee

Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 2014 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.
