  8. 8. One of the enduring difficulties about<br /> technology and education is that a lot of<br /> people think about the technology first and the education later” (Schacter, 1995, p. 11).<br />• “…The true value of technology for learning<br /> lies not in learning to use technology, but in<br /> using technology to learn.” (Educational Research Service, 2001)<br />

  16. 16. Higher Order Thinking<br />What is Higher Order Thinking?<br />Identify your eLearning task<br />
  17. 17. What is Higher Order Thinking<br /> “Higher-order thinking by students involves the transformation of information and ideas. This transformation occurs when students combine facts and ideas and synthesise, generalise, explain, hypothesise or arrive at some conclusion or interpretation. Manipulating information and ideas through these processes allows students to solve problems, gain understanding and discover new meaning.”<br />
  18. 18. Continued…..<br /> “When students engage in the construction of knowledge, an element of uncertainty is introduced into the instructional process and the outcomes are not always predictable; in other words, the teacher is not certain what the students will produce. In helping students become producers of knowledge, the teacher’s main instructional task is to create activities or environments that allow them opportunities to engage in higher-order thinking.”<br />
