8:40 PM Quinnovator a1) Greenfield’s research says that it is, as we don’t do more reflective activities any more #lrnchat
8:40 PM JD_Dillon @JaneBozarth @TheRealAirton please make an “LMS staff” shirt to wear to work … #lrnchat

8:40 PM TheRealAirton RT @JD_Dillon: @JaneBozarth @TheRealAirton please make an “LMS staff” shirt to wear to work … #lrnchat
8:40 PM tomspiglanin A0) hello all, joining mobile @JD_Dillon style #lrnchat
8:40 PM SLDoyle67 A1) I would argue critical thinking has improved. Need to weed out truth from fiction given all that is out there. #lrnchat
8:40 PM brunowinck @Elham_ab Hi Elham glad to see you back on #lrnchat must be very very early for you ?
8:40 PM Quinnovator a1) however, we can consciously choose to be reflective about using tech and perhaps when not to (I still love reading a book) #lrnchat
8:40 PM TheRealAirton .@JaneBozarth you are the “system” #lrnchat
8:41 PM annasabramowicz RT @lrnchat: 1) Is our critical thinking declining because of technology? Why? #lrnchat

8:41 PM TheRealAirton RT @lrnchat: 1) Is our critical thinking declining because of technology? Why? #lrnchat
8:41 PM britz RT @AdamTilted A1) I think yes and no. Depends on the tech. #lrnchat /which tech do you think helps/hinders?
8:41 PM ryantracey A1) I do think “just Google it”, while incredibly useful, is subverting deep understanding. #lrnchat
8:41 PM samsavela A1) No way. We’re getting way smarter. Embodied cognition theory sez local info is just as good as info in our heads. #lrnchat
8:41 PM rjpanetti RT @Quinnovator: a1) however, we can consciously choose to be reflective about using tech and perhaps when not to (I still love reading a b…
8:41 PM mpetersell RT @lrnchat: 1) Is our critical thinking declining because of technology? Why? #lrnchat
8:41 PM trainersleaders q1) I don’t believe our critical thinking is declining because of technology; how we use tech is the key element #lrnchat
8:41 PM Elham_ab @JaneBozarth: Fine thanks. SANTA CAME EARLY WITH A NEW ELECTRIC UKULELE. #lrnchat” wow! I got a Ukelele too :)need to learn how to play it
8:41 PM AdamTilted A1) I can’t remember any phone numbers, but I have no excuse for not backing my opinions with facts. #lrnchat
8:41 PM SLDoyle67 @SLDoyle67 Unless dealing with people who believe because it’s on the Internet it must be true… #lrnchat
8:41 PM MMTingley Q0) I’ve learned that 2015 is exhausting already! #lrnchat
8:42 PM britz @ryantracey or does it launch us into directions we would never have gone? #lrnchat
8:42 PM gkozdrowski A1) The best technology wants to be intuitive which, by definition, isn’t really critical thinking #lrnchat
8:42 PM tomspiglanin RT @lrnchat: 1) Is our critical thinking declining because of technology? Why? #lrnchat
8:42 PM jyoti__gupta #lrnchat a1) Not sure tho I wonder when I see parents at playground absorbed with their phones and not engaging with kids.
8:42 PM Quinnovator a1) one question is what critical thinking do we care about? Do we make critical choices about what tech to use when? #lrnchat
8:42 PM AdamTilted A1) As a former teacher, I know that tech can enhance learning if used correctly, but it’s not a magic pill. #lrnchat
8:42 PM TheRealAirton A1) Yes. people instinctively look for the quick win, answer, cheat code or redo without thinking it through. #lrnchat
8:42 PM ryantracey @gkozdrowski Perhaps intuitive technology enables critical thinking? #lrnchat
8:42 PM urbie #lrnchat A1 Depends. In the schools where PD some Saturdays with #edcamp critical thinking is on the rise.
8:42 PM LnDDave RT @lrnchat: 1) Is our critical thinking declining because of technology? Why? #lrnchat
8:42 PM Quinnovator a1) can we or do we choose to think what the answer will be before we get the Google answer? #lrnchat
8:42 PM brunowinck A1) When I read (quickly) the article I think there is a confusion between technology and the use of it #lrnchat
8:43 PM gkozdrowski @samsavela Being smarter and being a good critical thinker aren’t necessarily the same thing #lrnchat
8:43 PM trainersleaders q1) #lrnchat is a great example of how we use technology to (sometimes) foster critical thinking; always makes me read more on a topic
8:43 PM Elham_ab Glad to be join tday’s #lrnchat. Good day to everyone. Just got to the office.
8:43 PM chrisstjohn Q1: Do we tend to make up for lack of ability/good judgement by relying on tech? Just cuz the techn says so, doesnt make it right. #lrnchat
8:43 PM JaneBozarth Did y’all read the article on this? There’s research… http://t.co/or9graiXpk #science #lrnchat
8:43 PM krinhoh RT @Quinnovator: a1) can we or do we choose to think what the answer will be before we get the Google answer? #lrnchat
8:43 PM odguru Q0) Learning about visualizing tasks and finding true capacity in #goalattainment research with @nlachapelle and @nrandall #lrnchat
8:43 PM gkozdrowski @ryantracey We have to encourage as well as enable that critical thinking #lrnchat
8:44 PM annasabramowicz A1) Tech is enhancement, so you choose what to enhance – ignorance is amplified or critical thought has more resources. #lrnchat
8:44 PM AdamTilted The article, to me, seemed to almost argue both sides. For me, it’s most important HOW the tech is used, not WHAT tech. #lrnchat
8:44 PM Quinnovator a1) better, worse, or the same? Research shows ‘digital natives’ no better than older folks at *using* tech #Lrnchat
8:44 PM trainersleaders Great opp for reflection: RT @Quinnovator can we or do we choose to think what the answer will be before we get the Google answer? #lrnchat
8:44 PM LnDDave A1) Our critical thinking skills can decline if we don’t adapt them to change, be it technology-based or another evolution. #lrnchat
8:44 PM JaneBozarth Can’t see firsthand about critical thinking, but rapid-fire waves of info seem to cut into reflection time. Does for me, anyway. #lrnchat
8:44 PM Elham_ab I learned I should avoid thin slice judgments #lrnchat.

8:44 PM AdamTilted A pen is more technologically advanced than a pencil, but a pen is not always the best tool for the job. #lrnchat
8:44 PM willconstantine Hello all, sorry I am late! #lrnchat
8:44 PM urbie #lrnchat A1 Technology is a night-light w/o someone curious/intelligent/motivated to make it go. Probably isn’t technology at fault.
8:44 PM JonRedeker A1: our critical thinking has disappeared with the reset button on our machines. If it doesn’t work, just reboot #resetgeneration #lrnchat
8:44 PM JaneBozarth @willconstantine Mr Constantine… #lrnchat
8:44 PM Quinnovator a1) seems we’re critically reflecting in 140 chars, eh? #lrnchat

8:45 PM brunowinck A1) IMHO there is a trend that it’s better as little as possible of us use criitical thinking, tech is just used 4 this purpose #lrnchat
8:45 PM odguru RT @Elham_ab: I learned I should avoid thin slice judgments #lrnchat.
8:45 PM AdamTilted Hi @willconstantine #lrnchat
8:45 PM tomspiglanin A1) tech isn’t the problem, it’s feeling rushed that gets in the way #lrnchat
8:45 PM Elham_ab “@AdamTilted: A0) I (re)learned that music can improve my mood. #lrnchat” same here. Have recently started listening to it in the morning🙂
8:45 PM TheRealAirton Is there a short version that doesn’t make me think? #lrnchat
8:45 PM samsavela @JaneBozarth Yes, let’s talk about the research. I say bogus. We’re not less literate: We’re looking at WAY more people. #lrnchat
8:46 PM chrisstjohn Sometimes I find my thoughts are more cogent if I write a letter using a pen than bang it out on a keyboard #lrnchat
8:46 PM npmaven RT @JaneBozarth: Article being referenced tonight is http://t.co/or9graiXpk #lrnchat
8:46 PM trainersleaders MT @annasabramowicz Tech is enhancement…you choose what to enhance; ignorance is amplified or critical thought has more resources #lrnchat
8:46 PM willconstantine RT @lrnchat: 1) Is our critical thinking declining because of technology? Why? #lrnchat
8:46 PM hummel0033 A1) The individual has to drive the thinking. #lrnchat
8:46 PM urbie RT @Quinnovator: a1) Greenfield’s research says that it is, as we don’t do more reflective activities any more #lrnchat
8:46 PM MMTingley Q1) I think niche news detracts from critical thinking. Some of that is due to tech. #lrnchat
8:46 PM trainersleaders Another call for fostering reflection: RT @tomspiglanin A1) tech isn’t the problem, it’s feeling rushed that gets in the way #lrnchat
8:46 PM willconstantine Q1) I think it is because instead of using our brains to to think it through, we use Google to do it for us #lrnchat
8:46 PM trainersleaders RT @hummel0033 A1) The individual has to drive the thinking. #lrnchat
8:46 PM rjpanetti Its easier to medicate with endless data. e.g. this is my brain on the box. need to filter out the noise #lrnchat http://t.co/iGI3p6YExA
8:46 PM urbie #lrnchat A1 If the question is.. is critical thinking during learning in decline because of technology, then yes. Too much tools focus.
8:47 PM Quinnovator a1) odd thought: digital mentor/coach that suggests interesting ways to augment tech w/ infer, synth, analy, prob-solve, etc #lrnchat
8:47 PM ryantracey @Quinnovator Connects to @tomspiglanin’s point of feeling rushed. #lrnchat
8:47 PM Elham_ab @brunowinck thanks! I’m very glad too. Wasn’t feeling good that I couldn’t.🙂 #lrnchat
8:47 PM samsavela @JaneBozarth Slim margin of population has ever read for fun, but majority uses the web. #lrnchat
8:47 PM JaneBozarth @samsavela article is discussing that. print reading is down. #lrnchat
8:47 PM kmarranzino RT @lrnchat: 1) Is our critical thinking declining because of technology? Why? #lrnchat

8:47 PM britz RT @lrnchat 2) Do you find reading for pleasure beneficial to critical thinking? Why? #lrnchat
8:48 PM gkozdrowski A1) Tech makes things easy and can also encourage laziness and lack of rigour – not always, but certainly frequently #lrnchat
8:48 PM Elham_ab RT @lrnchat: 1) Is our critical thinking declining because of technology? Why? #lrnchat
8:48 PM The_NthDegree @brunowinck I’m around… saw me where!! #lrnchat
8:48 PM willconstantine RT @lrnchat: 2) Do you find reading for pleasure beneficial to critical thinking? Why? #lrnchat
8:48 PM annasabramowicz @Quinnovator At my house we force each other to think of the answer, then ask for clues, we check in with almighty G to confirm #lrnchat
8:48 PM JaneBozarth @samsavela what about before the web? #lrnchat
8:48 PM chrisstjohn RT @lrnchat: 2) Do you find reading for pleasure beneficial to critical thinking? Why? #lrnchat
8:48 PM AdamTilted I have so much to say but 140 characters. blah! #lrnchat
8:48 PM Elham_ab 1) I think yes, we’re doing too much of multitasking #lrnchat
8:48 PM willconstantine Q2) I find reading good because the author has taken the time to explain the thinking behind the problem #lrnchat
8:48 PM The_NthDegree A2 I find reading for pleasure beneficial for me. That puts me in a better frame of mind for everything so… yeah, I reckon🙂 #lrnchat
8:48 PM brunowinck @Elham_ab usually at that time of year I’m India and the chat takes place before my first cup of tea #lrnchat
8:49 PM TheRealAirton RT @tomspiglanin: A1) tech isn’t the problem, it’s feeling rushed that gets in the way #lrnchat
8:49 PM britz Yes. I reading industry news, research and stimulating blogs… all for pleasure #lrnchat
8:49 PM TheRealAirton RT @lrnchat: 2) Do you find reading for pleasure beneficial to critical thinking? Why? #lrnchat
8:49 PM trainersleaders Why is web not “reading for fun”? MT @samsavela Slim margin of population has ever read for fun, but majority uses the web. #lrnchat
8:49 PM AdamTilted A2) Reading for pleasure is beneficial to all kinds of thinking (and vocabulary!) #lrnchat
8:49 PM kmarranzino Yes. Technology is distracting. Leaves little time for focus and reflection; skills necessary for critical thinking. #lrnchat
8:49 PM odguru q1) Multitasking and technology r 2 different things. 4 most, switching time in multitasking is a problem whether using tech or not #lrnchat
8:49 PM JaneBozarth RT @lrnchat: 2) Do you find reading for pleasure beneficial to critical thinking? Why? #lrnchat
8:49 PM npmaven RT @lrnchat: 2) Do you find reading for pleasure beneficial to critical thinking? Why? #lrnchat
8:49 PM willconstantine Q2) there is also something enticing about a story and completion vs flipping to the answer. #lrnchat
8:49 PM gkozdrowski a2) I read less for pleasure now, in part because tech has made it so easy to get absorbed in work #lrnchat
8:49 PM The_NthDegree @Elham_ab I don’t think we all multi-task too much – it’s a very individual thing🙂 #lrnchat
8:49 PM kmarranzino RT @lrnchat: 2) Do you find reading for pleasure beneficial to critical thinking? Why? #lrnchat
8:49 PM LnDDave A1) I’m surprised when people say Google kills our critical thinking; I feel thinking about the best search terms enhances it. #lrnchat
8:50 PM lrnchat thx @Elham_ab for our #lrnchat topic & article: Is Technology Producing A Decline In Critical Thinking And Analysis http://t.co/gVsUgpE0Wl
8:50 PM audioswhite RT @JaneBozarth: Article being referenced tonight is http://t.co/or9graiXpk #lrnchat
8:50 PM urbie #lrnchat A2 Lately I’ve been an impatient reader. Fiction’s about whodunit. Mostly i read non-fiction, new-ways-of-knowing stuff. awesome.
8:50 PM The_NthDegree @gkozdrowski Do you watch less TV too? #lrnchat
8:50 PM PaulSolarz Please join us for #ICEilchat in 10 minutes! We’re discussing teaching and learning in the digital age! #mdeschat #gaed #denchat #lrnchat
8:50 PM LnDDave RT @lrnchat: 2) Do you find reading for pleasure beneficial to critical thinking? Why? #lrnchat
8:50 PM willconstantine Q2) a writer is the ultimate critical thinker #lrnchat
8:50 PM ryantracey A2) I find my reading for pleasure often sparks critical thinking about some tangential aspect. #lrnchat
8:50 PM gkozdrowski a2) I agree with many others. Our definition of reading for “pleasure” has changed #lrnchat
8:50 PM SLDoyle67 Q2) Yes. Often, it presents a situation in a way I’ve not thought of before. #lrnchat
8:50 PM JaneBozarth q2 yes other reading often takes me into areas not always in my line of vision wrote about it this month http://t.co/JHP0oVqEqg #lrnchat
8:50 PM Elham_ab @Quinnovator me too. I still love books. Reading on phone/iPad is on my rides, but books for home. #lrnchat
8:50 PM brunowinck A2) Must admit I almost stop reading for pleasure but no I don’t think it relates to critical thinking, never felt that #lrnchat
8:50 PM odguru q1) Lack of training in logic and problem solving also why critical thinking can be lacking… #lrnchat
8:50 PM ryantracey RT @SLDoyle67: Q2) Yes. Often, it presents a situation in a way I’ve not thought of before. #lrnchat
8:50 PM TheRealAirton A2) to me reading is the only way to learn where I filter info by without visual intrusions #lrnchat
8:50 PM trainersleaders q2) Reading for pleasure feels beneficial to critical thinking since it inherently offers info I want to think about #lrnchat
#lrnchat
8:51 PM annasabramowicz @tomspiglanin deduction, assessment of the process – yep, most takes some good focused time #lrnchat
8:51 PM britz RT @TheRealAirton A2) to me reading is the only way to learn where I filter info by without visual intrusions #lrnchat
8:51 PM urbie #lrnchat A2 So, yes.. non-fiction titles grow critical thinking because it’s mostly being exposed to new ideas from different disciplines
