4 Wonderful Critical Thinking Graphics ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching | Scoop.it

Over the last couple of years I have been sharing several awesome graphics covering a wide range of topics from language mechanics to higher order thinking skills. The archive is open to everybody to access and I welcome your contributions and feedback on it as well.

Bryan Hartsig's curator insight, February 21, 2013 6:22 PM

The article has two different threads, the work of Doug Lemov, now of the school charter organization Uncommon Schools, on identifying the framework of what comprises excellent teaching/classroom management more generally (he has 49 factors, and is publishing a book on his method next month), as well as identifying subject-specific teaching frameworks, such as in math. On the latter, the article features the work of people at the Michigan State University College of Education, as well as a professor at the University of Michigan School of Education.

Here's an argument in favour of a social and emotional construct  for a balanced education - one that uses technology to enhance learning and cultivate social and emotional skills as part of larger varied patchwork that includes all other literacies - not just digital.
