The Power of Technology to Get Students Thinking

Educators now largely agree that listening passively to a talking head – electronic or live – is not how children (or adults) learn best. From early years on, students need to engage their intellects with peers, by sharing and thinking through ideas. Doing so serves as invaluable practice for the communicative and collaborative demands of adult life. To support this effort technology is at the ready; indeed for now communicating electronically is the sole option available to very many students and teachers. Yet it has served at most scattered use for this most important purpose of serious student-to-student talking and thinking. In March 2020, we quickly adapted for online implementation our week-long, full-day, in-person workshop immersing middle-schoolers in extended debate of serious topics. Moving entirely online, we observed anticipated positive outcomes plus some further unexpected benefits.
