Promoting Higher Order Thinking with Technology (Webinar)

Technology, if it is integrated in a purposeful and relevant way, can help students think critically, persist in ambiguous situations, and work collaboratively.

Join the LINCS Community on July 10, 2018, at 2:00 pm ET for “Promoting Higher Order Thinking with Technology (HOTT): HOTT Skills in the Adult Education Classroom.” Becky Shiring, a director of professional development and continued learning at a technology company with over 10 years’ experience working with a diverse set of learners including adults and ELLs, will demonstrate five different tech tools that promote higher order thinking skills in the classroom (e.g., creative thinking, collaboration and cooperation, and self-regulation and monitoring). Session participants will learn how to create their own HOTT activities to engage learners and prepare them for the challenges of the modern workplace.

After the webinar, the discussion will continue in the LINCS Community Integrating Technology Group from July 10 – July 13. Becky will answer questions and LINCS Community members will share how they use higher order thinking strategies and HOTT strategies in their own classrooms. Bring your favorite examples! 

Register now - and be sure to invite your colleagues!

The webinar and following discussion are freely accessible and perfect for teachers, program staff, trainers, and other adult education stakeholders. To join the webinar and the discussion, please join the Integrating Technology group in the LINCS Community.
