H.O.T. / D.O.K.: Teaching Higher Order Thinking and Depth of Knowledge - Project-Based Learning

H.O.T. / D.O.K.: Teaching Higher Order Thinking and Depth of Knowledge - Project-Based Learning | Cognitive Rigor | Scoop.it
Like the Transformers, we're focused more on the spectacle or presentation of the project than the level of thinking the student demonstrated and depth of knowledge the student communicated in designing the project.
John R. Walkup's insight:

This article by Erik Francis correlates closely to our own blog article on project based learning.  Erik cautions readers about confusing the rigor of project-based learning activities that may seem fun and engaging but offer little in the way of cognitive challenge.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Cognitive Rigor | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.
John R. Walkup's insight:

Although not explicitly linked to Cognitive Rigor, this paper discusses critical thinking and its relation to constructionism, with extensive discussion of the Maker movement.  Offers interesting insights into the role of writing in critical thinking as well. Those interested in project-based learning, Making, constructionism, and inquiry should read this article.
