why higher order thinking
Why higher- order thinking?

Bloom’s Taxonomy

Higher –order thinking skills involve the learning of complex judgmental skills such as critic and problem solving. According to Bloom’s Taxonomy, analyzing, evaluating, and creating are the most complex kinds of thought. These three more complex kinds of thought are called higher-order thinking.

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a widely accepted psychological theory that categorizes different kinds of learning in ascending order from least to most complex.

pedagogical documentation
Pedagogical Documentation

Our Set Up…

- Each Kindergarten Classroom has:

- 2 64 GB iPads (One for the teacher and one for the ECE)

- 5 iPad Minis

- 1 Mac Book Pro

- 55” Flatscreen Smart TV

- TV

*Also our French teacher and Music Specialist have a 64 GB iPad to document learning

our learning to date
Our Learning to Date
  •  Involvement
  • Creation of Student iPortfolios
  • Photo Streaming - to Mac Book
  • iPhoto - Face Recognition
  • Photo Booth - used to capture learning such as, a reading conference, PM Benchmarking
  • Adding Audio Files to Photos
  • Flagging Files to indicate that reteaching is required
  • Air dropping with  TV onto flatscreen TV to highlight the student’s thinking and learning. This technology can easily be used throughout the day for consolidation
how is our project different
How is our project different?
  • Our students are going to become part of documenting their own learning.
  • With explicit teaching and modeling our students will learn how to capture their work using the mini iPads.
  • Our hope is that our youngest learners will be able to: take photos of their work, interview a friend, explain their creation or work in a video clip so that it can then be saved to their iPortfolio.
  • At the end of the year, we intend to take key pieces from each child’s iPortfolio and add them into their ePortfolio which can then move with the child to their new classor new school if he or she moves or is posted somewhere in Ontario.
