Digital Note Taking Strategies That Deepen Student Thinking | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Organization is a critical academic skill and one that many students struggle with in both the physical and digital worlds. Parents and teachers already help students get organized and now need to extend that to the digital world. Given the influx of technology in their academic lives, students need to develop an effective organizational system for their digital notes, projects and thinking.

5 Strategies for Team Brainstorming to Use in Your Next Meeting

5 Strategies for Team Brainstorming to Use in Your Next Meeting | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

Team brainstorming seems like a good idea--at least, on paper. What usually happens is this: the company is experiencing a tough problem that no single person seems able to solve, so someone decides that more minds means more processing power, and before you know it you're all gathered in the conference room.

 

One or two people churn out bad idea after bad idea, while everyone else stares at the wall or multitasks. There are no major breakthroughs and most of you are irritated at the waste of time.

 

Sound familiar? Why is this such a problem?


Via The Learning Factor
Chris Carter's insight:
Useful frame through which to construct a brainstorm session:
1. Choose only necessary participants
2. Know the goals beforehand-and give people time
3. Keep the session brief
4. Mandate participation
5. Encourage "bad" ideas

These Bloom's Analysis Tools are Perfect for Higher-Order Thinking

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, November 9, 12:08 AM
Many examinations and activities place emphasis on skills like remembering and understanding. Unfortunately, this leaves little room for incorporating the Bloom’s taxonomic levels of higher order thinking like analysis, evaluation, and creativity. We know from research that teaching our students higher-order thinking skills is one of the most beneficial steps we can take. After all, these are the skills they truly need to succeed beyond school, after all. But do our examinations and activities reflect this need? To help you find out, educator Andrew Churches has devised two very useful Bloom’s analysis tools that are available on his website Edorigami. These two tools specifically analyze the Bloom’s taxonomic levels of activities and assessments. Moreover, they investigate the balance between higher-order thinking skills (HOTS) and lower-order thinking skills (LOTS). In doing so, they help you improve the taxonomic focus of your exams and activities or units. Download each tool by clicking on the image or the link below it.

Muchas veces, el aprendizaje se basa en recordar y comprender. Sin embargo, Bloom añade algunos elementos, como, el análisis, la evaluación y la creación para realmente dominar el concepto.
