Supporting the Development of 21st Century Competencies: Letting Technology do the Dirty Work

A session at Bring IT, Together [ECOO & OASBO]

Thursday 24th October, 2013

1:00pm to 1:45pm (EST)

Cognitive skills, like those associated with critical thinking, creative thinking, self-reflection, and meta-cognition, are just like physical skills: they develop through repeated effective practice. Researchers and educators have long known that self- and peer-assessment, while highly effective at increasing achievement, also provide exactly this kind of practice in developing 21stcentury competencies. Learn why peer and self-assessment are such effective strategies and how new digital innovations, such as Cogneeto, can manage peer- and self-assessment seamlessly while also increasing student engagement. All participants receive a free classroom trial.

Steve Joordens, (Professor at University of Toronto and Cognitive Psychologist specializing in memory and consciousness), is a highly sought after keynote presenter with several television appearances to his credit. He has won numerous teaching and lecturing awards as well as the National Technology Innovation Award for his work in researching and developing PeerScholar and Cogneeto
