Microsoft Gets into the ‘Critical Thinking’ Game

Being pushed by Google and Apple to get more academic-minded and begin supporting education at the grassroots levels in North America, Microsoft in collaboration with ISTE (International Society Technology in Education) put together a thirty-seven page “Critical Thinking in the Classroom” teacher’s guide and program. The document is loaded with lesson plans include prerequisites, rationale, essential concepts, and descriptions of related National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) and are designed for beginner, intermediate, or advanced levels, aimed at middle school and secondary students.

Now, I just need the time to go through the document, digest it and attempt to share with my teaching colleagues.
