We know students love to use technology, so how about using technology as a tool to encourage higher order thinking? This post explores three ways you might choose to do this.

* Develop a digital tool kit. Go out and find some great tools that will help students use higher order thinking skills. Given them a test drive first, and then create a digital playlist and some digital guides to help students learn how to use them.

* Design flexible learning experiences. "Grab your toolkit, embrace Essential Questions, then build lessons around them." And for information on Essential Questions you may want to check out Chapter 1 of the book "Essential Questions: Opening Doors to Student Understanding from ASCD at http://www.ascd.org/publications/books/109004/chapters/What-Makes-a-Question-Essential¢.aspx.

* Get out of the way and let students create.
This post also provides a number of links to additional resources.

#3 "shorten columns" is interesting. I've never read any evidence for this, though I have seen experiments showing that reading from the screen delivers lower retention than reading from paper.

Web design rules are pretty well developed. I personally like using Nielsen's Heuristics and tailoring them to specific projects http://www.nngroup.com/articles/ten-usability-heuristics/ Learning design and web design are very different though.
