It's time to stop hating Google Glass - 10 views

    "In the nearly two years since Google began testing its augmented-reality eyewear, public reaction has progressed from "that's amazing" to "those look stupid" to "if you wear them, you deserve to be physically assaulted." Google always said people would need some time to adjust to the concept of smart glasses, but this probably isn't the evolution the company had in mind.

Educational Leadership:Writing: A Core Skill:Teach Critical Thinking to Teach Writing - 36 views

  • critical thinking doesn't come easily for anyone
  • writing does not necessarily teach critical thinkin
  • the best way to help students learn critical thinking may be to actually teach it
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • although writing and thinking may be linked, students don't learn to think just by learning to write; rather, to learn to write, they need to learn to think.
    An excellent article on the challenges we all face in become better at thinking critically and writing well. I have found that most students do better presenting arguments in written form when they have engaged in in-depth discussion, as then questioning and peer responses can prompt deeper thinking and make real the need to both cite and explain evidence. The Shared Inquiry method used in Great Books programs provides a focus on open, interpretive questions that require students to make an defend claims about the meaning of complex texts. The model lessons suggest a sequence of activities that supports multiple close readings, collaborative discussions, and writing throughout the process.

    I have a few students who have a very difficult time asking questions and contributing to class discussions, so I thought I would try out a backchannel tool to help them find their voice. I was amazed at how much more these students participated during the lesson. I used this site, it was very easy to use and you don't have to sign-up for an account. Also, the students do not have to sign-in to the site, they just put in the class name I set up.
