The Four C’s in STEM: Critical Thinking with Visual Ranking Tool

Intel’s Visual Ranking Tool helps students to think critically about a question or task.  Students can discuss the option and use the ranking tool to put responses in order of importance.

This free, customizable application allows the teacher to input possible solutions and discussion points or for the students to create and rank different solutions on their own.  Once students have ranked their choices, teams can compare their rankings with another team or class, thus sparking a deeper discussion on the chosen subject.

Throughout the process, the teacher can provide comments, questions for students an feedback on progress as he/she communicates with students.  And, the Visual Ranking Tool is also available on iOS and Android, to encourage mobile learning.
