Critical Thinking App

Think-O-Meter is the name of Pearson’s Critical Thinking App. Pearson uses the RED-model for critical thinking. The App provides texts with multiple-choice questions. Answering the questions requires close reading, thinking and reasoning. The App provides useful feedback.

The texts and questions can certainly be discussed in pairs or small groups, which will make it more valuable as students have to argument with each other.

The level of the texts and the questions are at a high level. I would say pre-university or university level.

The App is difficult to find in the App Store. Go to Pearson’s website to get to the App in the App Store.

Historie

Nettstedet Digital History handler om emner fra Amerikanske historie. Hjemmesiden viser bilder og timeline samtidig.
Nettstedet tilbyr en enorm mengde av informasjon på tekst, bilder, filmer, historiske dokumenter o.s.v. I tillegg får du nyttig informasjon for lærere. Innholdet på nettstedet er produsert under ansvar av College of Education of Houston University (USA).

Innholdet er muligens for forseggjort til å bli brukt mye utenfor USA, men noen emner vil sikkert være av interesse, og er verdt å studere for studenter utenfor USA.

Tilnærmingen kan også tjene som et eksempel til å jobbe på et historisk prosjekt eller emne nærmere til studentene.

Dictionary App

Merriam Webster logo

We, and definitely our students, live in the 21st Century. They constantly use digital resources and equipment. We will loose them if we only offer them the good, old,  paper-based Dictionary. Teach them how to use Google Translate properly. Besides, there are very good (FREE of charge) dictionaries available for smartphones and tablets. In my opinion, Merriam Webster English Dictionary is one of the best.

Functions of the Merriam Webster App:

  • example sentences
  • thesaurus : synonyms and antonyms
  • audio pronunciation
  • voice search
  • when you type in the ´search field´ the App offers alternative suggestions
