    "What is CEQ*ALL? What happens when students are left to their own devices? In a WiFi Web 2 world, it could be many wonderful and amazing things? Web 2 empowers the self-initiated to learn more and more personally than ever possible before. But many students, well-trained in the "playing school" see free time a chance to goof off, to escape the boredom or avoid the stress. But what if students were truly free to learn as they wish in a supportive environment? CEQ*ALL provides a research-based, common sense approach to guiding personal learning to maximize intrinsic motivation, achievement and sophisticated thinking."

Thinking Dispositions: A review of current theories, practices, and issues - 0 views

  • Good thinkers certainly have thinking skills. But they also have more: Motivations, attitudes, values and habits of mind all play key roles in good thinking, and in large part it is these elements that determine whether people use their thinking skills when it counts.
    • Tom March
       
      This is the key behind "Dispositions." Yes, people need the skill/abiity to think critically, but this doesn't tend to happen unless they have a desire to do so.
  • What Kinds of Thinking Dispositions Are There?
    • Tom March
       
      This is where other frameworks for thinking could be used as well. If a school has been working with Art Costa's Habits of Mind or Robert Marzano's Dimensions of Learning, these can be used here. The main point is that "enculturation" is the solution, not "teaching" critical thinking.
  • a disposition is something we want students to evidence on their own ─ without being pushed or prompted to evidence it"
    • Tom March
       
      Suggestion: this is where an online space, focused on intrinsically motivating experiences is an asset. Changes in thinking and motivation require substantial time and repetition.
