Critical Thinking

Think-O-Meter is the name of Pearson’s Critical Thinking App. Pearson uses the RED-model for critical thinking. The App provides texts with multiple-choice questions. Answering the questions requires close reading, thinking and reasoning. The App provides useful feedback.

The texts and questions can certainly be discussed in pairs or small groups, which will make it more valuable as students have to argument with each other.

The level of the texts and the questions are at a high level. I would say pre-university or university level.

The App is difficult to find in the App Store. Go to Pearson’s website to get to the App in the App Store.
