Stimulating Critical Thinking through a Technological Lens - 15 views

    Stimulating critical thinking using technology has the potential to create more in depth understanding of science and math content by students when engaged in learning activities which integrate in-class and on-line technology resources. Technology tools support stimulation of both inquiry-based and critical thinking skills by engaging students in exploring, thinking, reading, writing, researching, inventing, problem-solving, and experiencing the world outside their classroom. This is accomplished through learning content through the lens of video to multimedia to the internet (Using Technology to Improve Student Achievement, NCREL, 2005).

Bernie Dodge's blog - 0 views

  •  
    One powerful use of computers is to sift through large amounts of data to find the patterns hidden within them. Take a list of countries, for example, and look for relationships between the dominant religion and birthrate; between GNP and literacy; between government type and continent. In this assignment, you'll identify a standard that could be met by such exploration, use an online database (or create your own), and describe how you would implement it with learners. This assignment can be done individually or by a pair.
