About This Project

Think About it Thursday was designed as part of the Connected Voices Project

Today's digital tools can 
  • make thinking visible
  • connect student and educator voices
  • be used to create, construct, connect, and collaborate
  • help us think more deeply, critically, and creatively
Connected Voices Think About It Thursday provides you with monthly opportunities to use today's  digital tools to connect with students and educators around prompts and mini projects in 5 categories
  • Early Elementary
  • Upper Elementary
  • Middle School
  • High School
  • Professional Educators

On the First Thursday of the month, four new prompts will be posted.  The prompts will encourage students to THINK critically, THINK creatively, THINK more deeply.

The prompt /mini project will ask other students to take action and communicate that action using a digital age tech tool.   Actions may be could involve
  • reflecting and responding 
  • asking questions
  • collecting data
  • creating a digital artifact
  • or any other action that connects student voices and supports deep, critical, creative thinking
The prompt or mini-project can last anywhere from one day to one month.
