Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. team term projects. Each team will have approximately 40-45 minutes to present a report.

In the Spring 2003 version of the DAE2 course, each student is involved in three term projects:

  1. Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. Here, teams of about five students each are focussing on the current and potential impact of ICT on lower-order and higher-order knowledge and skills. The emphasis is on spending more elementary school student learning time and effort on critical thinking and problem solving, and on students learning effective uses of ICT in adding critical thinking and problem solving.
  2. Staff Development. Class members are divided into teams based on the schools in which they are doing their spring term field placement practicums. Each team is doing an extensive school-based project of planning for and implementing staff development within their school.
  3. Hit the Toad Running. Each class member is doing an individual term project in which they better prepare themselves to integrate effective use of ICT into their teaching job.

This is the last class meeting of the term. The time will be devoted to team presentations on the topic Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. Some objectives for this assignment include:

  • Participants will develop increased understanding of the critical thinking and problem solving components of the K-5 curriculum.
  • Participants will develop increased understanding of roles of ICT in the lower-order and the higher-order knowledge and skills in the K-5 curriculum.
  • Participants will develop and do a high quality multimedia presentation designed for helping their peers learn about the topic of ICT in Critical Thinking and Problem Solving.
