Games and Higher Order Thinking Skills

Minecraft iPad Pocket EditionNew Bloom Triangle

For my dissertation, I am investigating Higher Order Thinking Skills (analyzing, evaluating, and creating) in digital games.  I would like to find games, on the iPad, that develop these skills.  Unfortunately, I have not found many games for middle school and High school students which develop Higher Order Thinking Skills.  If you have discovered some of these games, please let me know, so that I can include them in my dissertation.

Thanks.

About Gaming and Education

Through my research, I have found that games are a powerful tool for learning for players of all ages. Last year I earned my doctorate in Educational Leadership at Azusa Pacific University. My dissertation was entitled - Higher Order Thinking Skills in Digital Games. I have presented my research at the annual convention of the California Educational Research Association. In addition to teaching, I assist other researchers who are working in the field of games and Learning.
