Critical and Creative Thinking in the Blended Learning Classroom

Do you struggle in providing your students depth in their learning? Implementing critical and creative thinking strategies can allow for students to analyze, assess and reconstruct their thinking. We have found that technology and resources have enhanced our students' ability to analyze, assess and reconstruct their thinking. We want to share ways that our students have developed their critical and creative thinking skills in our blended learning classrooms so that you can do the same!

We will look at different tools and resources that teachers will be able to immediately incorporate into the classroom. Come explore and join in on an interactive guide to connect critical thinking while using technology in the blending learning classroom.

While all teachers will benefit from this session, it will be geared for teachers in grades 4 and up. we will touch on several TSIP standards, but will focus on C/T 6-8.7 Plan and apply strategies for gathering information, using a variety of tools and sources, and reflect on alternate strategies that might lead to greater successes in
future projects.
