Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | iEduc | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

I like the breakdown presented in this article as well as the emphasis on using apps as critical thinking tools, not just creation tools.

Formative Assessment Is Foundational to Blended Learning -- THE Journal | iEduc | Scoop.it
Formative assessment began long before blended learning. But formative assessment is particularly in the spotlight now because it features so prominently in emerging blended learning programs.

I don't agree with the "third party" reference to NWEA, DEA, Acuity, etc.  To me these are more interim instead of formative. 

Still, there is some good information about formative instruction and blended learning in this article.

Credly is a new online tool from the thinkers at LearningTimes.org.  This is the first truly user friendly, online system for creating digital badges and issuing those badges to acknowledge the special skills and abilities of people working both academic and open resource venues. 


This is a technology to watch!

Content Mastery and Problem Solving Skills

Content Mastery and Problem Solving Skills | iEduc | Scoop.it
Most of the specific questions were on quizzes. This is because in my AP and gen. physics classes I give all quizzes on Canvas. I have quiz banks set up, from which Canvas pulls random problems, and the students do their best to answer them. Most of these questions came after I said that I gave the students multiple attempts on the quizzes (up to 5, at their own pace in AP, and as many as needed by conference in gen. physics).

One question went something like this, “Well, how do they take the quizzes? In class or at home?” I could tell right away that the concept of multiple attempts was throwing the teacher.

I'm no fan of high stakes quizzes/tests.  Instead I prefer the method advocated in this blog piece:  unlimited attempts.  


For me a quiz is a highly motivating opportunity for some guided review.  In an online environment where test security is always an issue, unlimited attempts removes the pressure.
