Using Thinking Routines with Remote Learning

Over the last decade, there has been an explosion of interest in how teachers can best build a culture of thinking in their classrooms, nurture students as powerful thinkers and learners, and make thinking visible. These goals are more important in times of disrupted learning than ever. Furthermore, teaching at a distance and engaging students’ actively in their learning requires much more than simply delivering content and providing assignments. This seminar will explore how we can adapt thinking routines to online learning and what technology tools, sites, apps and programs we might pair thinking routines with to better engage students in their learning.


 About the Presenter: Dr Ron Ritchhart


FINAL Ritch022 reducedRon Ritchhart is a Senior Research Associate and Principal Investigator at Harvard Project Zero where his work focuses on the development of school and classroom culture as prime vehicles for developing students’ as powerful thinkers and learners. Ron's research and writings have informed the work of schools, school systems, and museums throughout the world. His research is largely classroom based, learning from the best practice of teachers to better understand how they create conditions for powerful learning.

Ron’s seminal research presented in the book Intellectual Character, identified thinking routines as a core instructional practice and laid a framework for understanding group culture that is widely used by schools and organizations. His internationally best-selling book, Making Thinking Visible, co-written with Mark Church and Karin Morrison, has popularized the use of thinking routines to facilitate deep learning and high engagement. Ron’s book, Creating Cultures of Thinking, takes readers inside a diverse range of learning environments to show how teachers create classrooms where thinking is valued, visible and actively promoted as part of the day to day experience of all group members. Howard Gardner has called the book “ a tour de force” for Ron’s ability to seamlessly merge theory, research, practice and application together in a highly accessible and engaging manner. Ron’s most recent book is The Power of Making Thinking Visible, which he co-authored with Mark Church. This book presents new research on the power of thinking routines to transform learning, teaching, and schooling while sharing with readers what Ron and Mark have learned about how to use routines most effectively.

Ron splits his time between Santa Fe, New Mexico and Santa Barbara, California when he is not working in Cambridge or with schools around the world.
