6 Great iPad Apps to Enhance Students Critical and Strategic Thinking Skills - EdTech & MLearning

6 Great iPad Apps to Enhance Students Critical and Strategic Thinking Skills - EdTech & MLearning | 7th-8th grade Language Arts | Scoop.it
In today’s post we have curated for you a collection of some wonderful iPad games to boost students critical thinking skills and enhance their cognitive abilities. Playing these games, students will be able to engage with a variety of mental and abstract forms of reasoning where they will need to use their strategic and problem solving skills to find answers. While they are so much fun to play they are also a great way to help students approach the world from a critical thinking perspective. Have a look and share with your colleagues.

smart phones are very popular these years, people use is in studying and working, the appropriate app helps people work and study effectively, it also provide such a good channel of communication with friends and colleagues. As a kind of social media, smart phones provides a good channel for the promotion of many brands and products.

Brooke Carver's curator insight, February 4, 2014 8:25 PM

This article allows any teacher to see what tips and ideas they can use with smartphones within their classroom. This is leaning more towards middle school and high school, due to the students in elementary not having phones.

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp | 7th-8th grade Language Arts | Scoop.it

"Educators are beginning to see the potential of using mobile devices and apps for ongoing professional development as well as to improve literacy and cognitive development for learners. Apps are equipped with several features that motivate learners to create stories, presentations, and projects that are hands-on and use their creativity as well as their critical thinking skills. Once an app is downloaded, many features can be accessed without an Internet connection. Educators can also use various apps at conferences to connect with other educators or capture a presentation. Below are the various apps nominated by teachers for an Edublog Award so they must be worth checking out. Each has a link and a description. Make sure to check out the Edublog Awards for blogs, wikis, and web tools that teachers worldwide have recommended."

The Flipped Classroom model is changing the ways students learn and teachers teach. When you flip your classroom, you offer your students rich, engaging material to consider at home, and you use class time to help them interact with the ideas. Lecturing during class time is minimized and students have a teacher nearby when they are doing work and most likely to need guidance.
