Higher-Order Thinking & Problem Solving “ Research and evaluation shows that technology can enable the development of critical thinking skills when students use technology presentation and communication tools to present, publish, and share results of projects” (Cradler 2002). Higher-order thinking skills developed with the use of educational technologies 1. Researching skills 2. Comparing and contrasting skills 3. Synthesizing skills 4. Analyzing skills 5. Evaluating skills
“ Research shows that when students learn to use and apply applications used in the world of work, such as word processors, spreadsheets, computer-aided drawing, Web site development programs, and the Internet, they acquire some of the prerequisite skills for workforce preparedness” (Cradler 1994).
Teachers are the key, and professional development must be constantly analyzed to determine the most productive way to help teachers understand the importance of innovative ways to make the use of technology foster learning” (Harvey-Woodall 2009)
Use of technology can help teachers understand the individual learning styles of the students they teach (Harvey-Woodall 2009).
