Bloom's Critical Thinking Questions to Use in Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Bloom's Critical Thinking Questions to Use in Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Handy Online Tools for Schools | Scoop.it

Critical thinking is an essential skill in the cognitive development of students. It is probably the number one skill teachers would mention when asked about the skills they target in their instruction. Critical thinking is also the key to developing other equally crucial thinking habits such as divergent, lateral  and convergent thinking. Critical thinking starts with asking and answering critical questions. By critical questions I mean those questions that enable students to categorize, infer, synthesize, evaluate and apply the knowledge they have accumulated in the past to solve existing problems and learn new information. This is a well thought-out process in which students get to challenge their cognitive capacities and explore novel thinking paths.

Charts like these always make great resources to use in the classroom. Laminate a copy and walk around the classroom to ask better questions. Post a large version in the room to have a constant reminder that there are levels to questions. Give each student a copy to help them ask better questions in seminars!

"Summer 2014 brought a sight that had not been seen since 1941: the Charles W. Morgan leaving the Mystic River for the Atlantic Ocean, stopping at several New England harbors before eventually arriving in New Bedford, Massachusetts where the ship was built in 1841. The Charles W. Morgan is the last remaining wooden whaling ship in the world, and a National Historic Landmark."

Mapping World Religions


Via Seth Dixon

Chris Plummer's curator insight, January 7, 8:18 AM

Summary - This video shows the birth places of religions and their diffusion over time. It shows the diffusion of the major wold religions by expanding their color, and using a timeline giving a great representation by their spread over time. No religions began in America or any other countries in the western part of the world. They all began in the east. Throughout diffusion, you can see christianity is the major religion that crossed over the seas spreading widely in the west.

 

Insight - In unit 3, one of the major concepts is religion and its diffusion. This map shows just that. By showing the different  world religions and their diffusion over time it is easy to tell where and when these religions became popular.

Jason Schneider's curator insight, January 26, 9:22 PM

I just finished scooping the belief in God morality chart and it's kind of confusing to know that Christianity started in Europe because 70% of Europe does not believe that the belief in God is moral. I guess it's more of a technicality regarding the difference between Christianity and spirituality. Even though Hinduism started before other major religions, it appears to not have as much impact throughout the world like Christianity and Islam does. It's interesting to know that at the same time Islam was overpowering Christianity and overpowering most of the world, Christianity started going overseas to the United States.

Brett Laskowitz's curator insight, January 28, 12:01 PM

Plan to use this as an introductory piece for the Religion unit.  Have students watch the video and make a series of observations.  Then, divide the class into groups, with each focusing on one religion.  Have them make observations related to their religion.  Have students share their insights using "speed dating" discussions.
