check out Ablon's adjustments for the use in schools. I think it is still a work in progress. It's powerful in that teachers can take the time to learn the steps and assessment instead of enrolling in a Masters in counseling program. http://www.thinkkids.org/learn/about-thinkkids/

A Principal's Reflections: Forging Ahead With Change

A Principal's Reflections: Forging Ahead With Change | Leadership in Schools | Scoop.it

"As the school year comes to an end at New Milford High School, I can’t help but begin to think about sustaining the many changes that have taken place over the past few years as well as identifying other areas where change is needed.  My school is a shell of what it once was when one looks at how far we have come in terms of effectively integrating technology, re-envisioning learning spaces, and providing a foundation for a more relevant and meaningful learning experience for all of our students."

This resource may be of help for those in writing, education, and other fields where critical thinking is necessary for production and for producing value. Add this as a resource with rhetorical fallacies to keep at hand.

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp | Leadership in Schools | Scoop.it

"Educators are beginning to see the potential of using mobile devices and apps for ongoing professional development as well as to improve literacy and cognitive development for learners. Apps are equipped with several features that motivate learners to create stories, presentations, and projects that are hands-on and use their creativity as well as their critical thinking skills. Once an app is downloaded, many features can be accessed without an Internet connection. Educators can also use various apps at conferences to connect with other educators or capture a presentation. Below are the various apps nominated by teachers for an Edublog Award so they must be worth checking out. Each has a link and a description. Make sure to check out the Edublog Awards for blogs, wikis, and web tools that teachers worldwide have recommended."
