    Making Critical Thinking Real with Creative Coding, Digital Games, and Movie-Creation Tools
    Sunday, March 25, 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

    Everyone from employers to educators is talking about the need for today's students to develop effective critical thinking and problem solving skills, but few people know what that really looks like in a classroom or how to measure student competency in a meaningful way. This session is designed to take the conceptual understanding of critical thinking to a more practical reality. In a session grounded in research about employers' expectations and educators' challenges in this area, the presenters will use innovative digital content and games to demonstrate how students can effectively develop problem-solving muscles and how teachers can measure student competencies. Come ready to engage with digital tools and discuss pedagogy for application.
