You want to inspire and challenge them to demonstrate learning through Application, Analysis, Evaluation, and Creation. Educational technology offers a unique suite of tools that aids in accomplishing this goal, 2 and your Learning Management System (LMS) is one of them. Below are best practices for using it. 1 Prep students for high-order interaction with class pages. Higher-order thinking requires time and personal attention—both are maximized if students engage with content prior to class. Use your LMS class pages to post reading, video, audio, and image content that students access online before they walk through your door. They will show up with an understanding of foundational concepts, and you can ask them to Analyze, Evaluate, and Create responses to materials they've already digested— challenging them to collaborate and Apply material right away.
