Conquering the Web and Empowering Students to Be Critical ThinkersMay 24, 2017; 9am - 12:30pm (includes lunch)at FEA Conference CenterPresenter: Alan NovemberSpecial Reduced Fee: $75We now know that our students are using the web for news, homework and test review. While students' access to vetted content is heading straight down, their access to any version of the truth on the Internet is heading straight up. Research from Stanford University shows that the majority of our students are phenomenally over confident about their skills to discern fact from fiction. A teacher's role in teaching critical thinking is now more important than ever. It is essential that we teach students how to question information across the curriculum and grades. This session will provide educators with:- Design principals to create lessons that teach students critical thinking; - Powerful new tools to make student thinking more visible; and - New strategies to reimagine assessment for learning.
