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

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

A Framework for Differentiation

A Framework for Differentiation | Learning Apps | Scoop.it

"Differentiation is adjusting and modifying what skills and concepts student learn, what materials the use, and/or how their learning is assessed based on the needs of the students.

Our students are not all the same, so we cannot expect that teaching a lesson one way will reach every student."

Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 

 

Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through.

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers | Learning Apps | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.

 

“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.

Teaching Practices Inventory Provides Tool to Help You Examine Your Teaching

Teaching Practices Inventory Provides Tool to Help You Examine Your Teaching | Learning Apps | Scoop.it

Maryellen Weimer, PhD:

 

Here’s a great resource: the Teaching Practices Inventory. It’s an inventory that lists and scores the extent to which research-based teaching practices are being used. It’s been developed for use in math and science courses, but researchers Carl Wieman and Sarah Gilbert suggest it can be used in engineering and social sciences courses, although they have not tested it there. I suspect it has an even wider application. Most of the items on the inventory are or could be practiced in most disciplines and programs

4 Free Apps That Teach the Basics of Coding - We Are Teachers

4 Free Apps That Teach the Basics of Coding - We Are Teachers | Learning Apps | Scoop.it

"If your class is like mine, the kids are always talking about playing video games! Rather than discouraging that interest, I want to harness it to encourage a higher level of thinking in my class. That is exactly what happens when kids explore coding. I love watching their faces as they try to process that people have to "tell" technology what to do in order for a game to work. 

For many kids, the thought of creating games is even more exciting than playing them. Supporting their interest in gaming is important because the process of coding promotes problem-solving, creativity, collaboration and communication skills. Below I have listed four apps that are great places to start learning about coding with young kids. '

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 4:23 PM

Games don't grow on trees. They have to be created by a human droid that writes thousands and thousands lines of code. Ask your class,"If you want to make video games when you grow up, raise your hand "? I'd bet as you glance around the room, most of your students' hands would be up. Coding is the source that makes it all possible. Introducing coding concepts at an early age also makes it easier to learn-- much like learning a foreign language as a kid is easier than learning as an adult. These apps are free and can provide a platform to at least introduce the beginning concepts of gaming. What should the character be doing, how do I end the story, who saves the princess, etc. One I've used in my classroom is Daisy the Dinosaur.

How to Use Scratch for Digital Storytelling - graphite

How to Use Scratch for Digital Storytelling - graphite | Learning Apps | Scoop.it

"Digital storytelling involves combining digital media (images, voice narration, music, text, or motion) to tell a story. Over the past few years, digital storytelling has become an increasingly popular and effective way for students to meet a range of learning goals in the classroom. Scratch, a programming project from the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, might be an unexpected tool for digital storytelling. But using Scratch to tell a story is a “twofer”: Students practice important ELA skills and at the same time use computational thinking."

"Below we’ve gathered a diverse list of learning apps across iOS and Android from giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, as well as upstarts like Brainfeed, The Sandbox, and Knowji. None of the apps are perfect, but each app does something special, and in that talent represents what’s possible as we careen towards 2020 and beyond.

 

Learning through play. Self-directed learning. Flipped learning. Mobile learning. Collaborative learning. Social learning. It’s all here. Alone, none offer the turn-key approach to education that textbooks have traditionally turned to. But this is a strength. As education technology grows, we can adapt to new learning models that take advantage of the fragmented but enormous potential of self-directed, creative, collaborative, and almost entirely mobile learning."
