What Students Will Learn In The Future

 

That’s essentially what classes and content areas are–perspectives to make sense of the world. If the world changes, should they change?

 

These words and phrases that we now associate with schools, teachers, and assignments reflect our priority as a culture. This is the information and thinking we value and want our children to understand. It also implies what we think is useful, presumably (unless we’re intentionally teaching content that we think is use-less).

My feeling is that Critical Thinking is diametrically opposed to religion. It is difficult to teach a child this skill but then deny them to apply it to religious ideas that don't do well when examined in this way.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s comment, March 28, 2014 6:21 PM
Ian, you are entitled to your narrow, uninformed perspective but living and working in a Buddhist country, you could not be more wrong. The twisting of religious dogma to state that critical thinking is opposed to religion shows the ignorance within your statement and all religion scholars (PhD's) would laugh at your misinformed statement. ...critical thinking is a form of deeper learning "the process of purposeful, self-regulatory judgment.
Ian Korman's comment, March 31, 2014 3:58 AM
Rob, people that believe in religion often don't feel that they need to think critically about many things because the critical thinking has already been done for them. Even worse, for Buddhists, it can be considered a waste of time to think critically since they are placed on this world to suffer and no amount of critical thinking will change that. However, ignorance can be blissful.
