A visual guide to critical thinking. Can print for classroom display

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 8:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.

Australia: Dealing with BYO computers in schools | ABC Technology and Games

Australia: Dealing with BYO computers in schools | ABC Technology and Games | Utilising technology in teaching | Scoop.it

With the proliferation of mobile devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones, the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend is increasingly spreading in Australian schools, transforming the way students learn and how, where and when they consume educational information.

 

The BYOD strategy in schools has been at the centre of many debates around whether students should be allowed to bring their own smartphones and tablets - especially now that the laptops supplied by the federal government have reached the end of their lifespan. And while there may be naysayers, the benefits of schools adopting a BYOD strategy are numerous - for schools and for students.

 

The reality is most kids now carry a mobile device in their backpacks and they interact with technologies such as tablets, smartphones, laptops, the internet and social networking sites at home as part of daily life. Students have access to various resources online, beyond the typical classroom and hardcopy textbooks and they can access them through any mobile device anytime, anywhere. With the new generation of kids being exposed to mobile devices basically from birth, there is an expectation educational institutions will allow access to these technologies to support learning in the classroom.

Anne-Maree Johnson's insight:

This is the direction we are being pushed to take so we need to become a lot more informed.  The lack of good quality internet access and the lack of control over what students can access is a major obstacle. 

Creative solutions needed!

Jake Cumner's comment, June 4, 7:50 AM
Thank you for posting this article. I agree that schools are not yet equipped with adequate internet access to gain the full benefit of individual laptops in schools. I do also hold concerns for students who cannot afford access to these types of technologies which are expensive and outdate very quickly (often in less than a year)
