Creating Critical Thinking and Collaboration Activities

Describe how you would create two learning activities that require students to utilize a technology tool to create something to assist with learning a new topic.

Critical thinking requires students to apply their knowledge of course content to show you what they know or that asks students to transfer understanding from one learning event or lesson to another learning event or lesson. Activities may involve the use of problem-based learning, problem-solving, metacognitive activities, inquiry (including scientific or historical methods), and/or computational thinking. Collaborative learning requires your students to work together to learn content and show you what they have learned. The collaborative activity may involve either pairs working together or small groups of 3-4 students.
