"Educational technology use remains somewhat of a pig in a poke whose value is largely determined more by the perspective of supporters than any real data on learning outcomes. Edtech remains a sideshow for most faculty more interested in building a career than chasing fads.”

The 12 Characteristics of A Critical Thinker Teachers Should Be Aware of ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 12 Characteristics of A Critical Thinker Teachers Should Be Aware of ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in Educaton | Scoop.it

"We all want our students to be critical thinkers but when it comes to defining what it is that critical thinking is all about and what strategies to use to cultivate it in classroom things get a little bit muddier.Scholars across various disciplines define itdifferently. For Daniel Willingham critical thinking is "seeing both sides of an issue", Robert Wessberg views it as " an ability to use reason to move beyond the acquisition of facts to uncover deep meaning" and linda Elder sees it as a "self-guided, self-disciplined thinking which attempts to reason at the highest level of quality in a fair-minded way". At its essence, critical thinking does require an elevated form of reasoning that is not usually found in other forms of thinking and for teachers to raise critical thinkers  they definitely need to be well versed with the inner workings of this type of thinking. To this end, Edtech and Mlearning has this resourceful section full of materials and resources to help teachers integrate the ethos of critical thinking in their instructional pedagogy."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 13, 10:00 PM

Here is an up-to-date review of five tools that allow you to create infographics. Each tool is described. There is a list of pros and cons for each tool. All have free versions available, and some have more robust versions that cost additional money.

The five tools that are discussed are:

* Visme

* Canva

* Easel.ly

* Piktochart

* Infogr.am

Providing opportunities for students to create infographics allows them to create graphs, use a different style of writing, and have some fun while showing that they understand key concepts and ideas.

Juliet O'Connor's curator insight, September 7, 12:09 PM

This Article is about how schools are now using electronic devices like Ipads to help teach. However the articles main focus is that there are even more benefits to mobile devices in schools. The article provides 3 benefits of mobile tools. 

    I think that using Ipads in schools to help students take notes or even record teachers lectures is a great way to use technology. The benefits include using different apps in order to help students take notes or create project digitally. I can certainly see how students could benefit from these different ideas because today I think that children are a lot more technology savvy then I was 10 years ago. I think they get more and more savvy as more technology comes out. Personally I prefer to take notes on paper but I feel like younger generations prefer to do everything digitally. I use my computer primarily as a computer but I do know that some people use different apps in order to help them study like note card apps or organization apps. Children can definitely benefit from using their ipads for different reasons besides just using them at computers.

Flipped learning is a learning trend that is gaining in momentum within the education community. Whether this is a new trend or not does not matter here what matters is the fact that web technologies and digital media is increasing the potential of flipped learning beyond measures. Flipped classroom or flipped learning is a methodology, an approach to learning in which technology is employed to reverse the traditional role of classroom time.
