Beth Dichter's insight:

This is a great interactive model of critical thinking. One circle has 8 elements of thought:
* Purpose

* Question at issue

* Information

* Interpretation and influence

* Concepts

* Assumptions

* Implications and Consequences

* Point of View

As you role over and selelct an element of thought you are hown additional information about the element. For example, if you were to select Point of View  you would be prompted to understand your point of view and provided with questions to further your thinking. In addition there are also prompts for intellectual standards to consider. The intellectual standards include: clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, logic, significance, and fairness. In each of these area there is a brief definition as well a three additional questions to consider. There is also one choice (more) that provides you with additional standards you might want to consider and suggests that you think of your own.

I'm thinking this is a pretty complicated model given that many of our very best critical thinking is done within the space of a blink!  However, it's useful to be able to break it down and explain it for undergraduates for whom universities have great expectations in criticial thinking but don't really explain how they know what it is when they see it.  And, sadly, in introductory courses too often professors don't expect critical thinking of their students - sticking too close to recall or lower levels of application thinking for their expectations of student performance.

terrific toy for educators to play with and use - would work great in a group discussion with a faculty scholarly community...

Exploring Interactive Visualization

Exploring Interactive Visualization | Technology in Art And Education |

We often spend time talking to organizations that initially believe developing one or more static infographics is the best approach. Many times, we discover that their objectives, narrative, existing content, and the profile of their target audience suggest we should be considering developing an interactive work product instead.
As infographics become a more prevalent form of communication, we look ahead to other meaningful ways to impart information. This article serves as an introduction to interactive visualizations, with more detailed articles on the topic still to come.

5 Ways to Make Your PowerPoints Interactive

5 Ways to Make Your PowerPoints Interactive | Technology in Art And Education |

A great way to review new concepts is to create a Tic Tac Toe game slide in PowerPoint. In the example from a foreign language class to the right, images are used to represent new vocabulary.  However, this could be easily applied to other content areas as well: in a math class with formulas, in a history class historical figures or dates, in a science class with symbols from the periodic table...
