Standards-Based Digital Critical Thinking

Today  you’ll examine your content area standards and begin to reflect upon ways that technology can open new doors to implementing them.

Then you’ll explore the new literacies that technology has brought upon us.  Employers are looking for candidates who can navigate, critically evaluate, and make sense of the wealth of information available through digital media. These are the skills that we as educators must be focusing on in our classrooms. Today’s students need to be able to think critically and effectively solve problems while using technology, going beyond simply searching for information. They also must evaluate the legitimacy of the information, put it in context, and then apply problem-solving and decision-making skills.

Finally we will explore conceptual age presentations and review the requirements for your next major assignment:  delivering a Pecha Kucha.
