Beyond Hardware: Using Existing Technology to Promote Higher-Level Thinking

This title provides a systematic approach for educators eager to promote higher-order thinking skills in the face of limited technology budgets. The author, who has been a school administrator and classroom teacher as well as researcher and national consultant, demonstrates why decision makers should invest technology dollars in teachers rather than in fancy new hardware. He provides a framework for using existing technology to develop and revise lesson plans that promote critical thinking skills. The book includes the author's empirically validated assessment tool and a detailed vision for future applications of instructional technology.FEATURES
