Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it
I am interested in this post and post on critical thinking. Is critical thinking a skill?  Can one teach critical thinking? Stephen has delivered the course on Critical Literacies MOOC in the past....

 

Robert H. Ennis, Author of The Cornell Critical Thinking Tests
“Critical thinking is reasonable, reflective thinking that is focused on deciding what to believe and do.”

 

Assuming that critical thinking is reasonable reflective thinking focused on deciding what to believe or do, a critical thinker:

 

1. Is open-minded and mindful of alternatives
2. Tries to be well-informed
3. Judges well the credibility of sources
4. Identifies conclusions, reasons, and assumptions
5. Judges well the quality of an argument, including the acceptability of its reasons, assumptions, and evidence
6. Can well develop and defend a reasonable position
7. Asks appropriate clarifying questions
8. Formulates plausible hypotheses; plans experiments well
9. Defines terms in a way appropriate for the context
10. Draws conclusions when warranted, but with caution
11. Integrates all items in this list when deciding what to believe or do

 

What are the principles of critical thinking?

 

- Knowledge is acquired only through thinking, reasoning, and questioning. Knowledge is based on facts.


- It is only from learning how to think that you learn what to think.


- Critical thinking is an organized and systematic process used to judge the effectiveness of an argument.


- Critical thinking is a search for meaning.


- Critical thinking is a skill that can be learned.


- Do the above principles hold true and won’t change from one domain to the next?

50 Apps That Represent 50 New Ways To Learn

50 Apps That Represent 50 New Ways To Learn | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it
Modern learning is in a state of flux as it struggles to find out what it wants to become.

Schools continue to merely “add on” learning, while technology strongly suggests new possibilities for inside and beyond the classroom. From learning simulations and mobile learning, to adaptive apps, flipped classrooms, and self-directed learning through amazing digital channels, the possibilities for learning are almost overwhelming.

Below we’ve gathered a diverse list of learning apps across iOS and Android from giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, as well as upstarts like Brainfeed, The Sandbox, and Knowji. None of the apps are perfect, but each app does something special, and in that talent represents what’s possible as we careen towards 2020 and beyond.

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School?

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School? | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it

The only rational answer to the conundrum of curiosity is to disengage our educational system from standardized testing and common curricula. Curiosity does not hold up well under intense expectation. Give agency to teachers, with the explicit message to slow down and provide students time to wonder and be curious.

Cognitive Load Theory: Making learning more effective | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it
Cognitive Load Theory builds upon the widely accepted model of human information processing shown in Figure 1 (this was published by Richard Atkinson and Richard Shiffrin in 1968.)

It describes the process as having three main parts: sensory memory, working memory and long-term memory. Since then, many researchers have added to our understanding of this concept, but the basic model remains the same.

SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING: EQUIPPING STUDENTS FOR THE DIGITAL ECONOMY

SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING: EQUIPPING STUDENTS FOR THE DIGITAL ECONOMY | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it
In the report ‘New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning through Technology', the World Economic Forum explores how "character qualities" such as collaboration, communication and critical thinking will equip students to succeed in the swiftly evolving digital economy.

To thrive in the 21st century, students need more than traditional academic learning. They must be adept at collaboration, communication and problem-solving, which are some of the skills developed through social and emotional learning (SEL).

In 2015, the World Economic Forum (WEF) published the report New Vision for Education: Unlocking the Potential of Technology that focused on the pressing issue of the 21st-century skills gap and ways to address it through technology. In that report, WEF defined a set of 16 crucial proficiencies for education. Of those skills, 10 were labelled either “competencies” or “character qualities”. Competencies are the means by which students approach complex challenges; they include collaboration, communication and critical thinking and problem-solving. Character qualities are the ways in which students approach their changing environment; they include curiosity, adaptability and social and cultural awareness.

Learning From (Reflection On) Experience - InformED

Learning From (Reflection On) Experience - InformED | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it
“Within the world we find two dimensions, reflection and action, in such radical interaction that if one is sacrificed—even in part—the other immediately suffers.” –Paolo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Skilled learners are aware not only of what they’re learning but how they’re learning (or not learning) it. They stop a moment during their studies to consider how much they’re retaining, assess their methods, shift gears, and test their own understanding of new material. As we’ll see, doing so is crucial to any successful education. The good news is, making a habit of it is far less complicated than it sounds.

“When students are aware of themselves as learners, anything is possible,” says Starr Sackstein, a high school English teacher in New York and the author of Teaching Mythology Exposed: Helping Teachers Create Visionary Classroom Perspective. “Think about how much easier it would be to help students get their needs met if they knew exactly what to ask for help with. It has been my experience that teaching these skills to students enhances their learning experience exponentially.”

She adds: “Every kid is getting what he or she needs and the one size fits all approach isn’t the norm. I think kids are more independent learners now too because they realize they don’t need me for everything. I’m here to support, but not as the only one who knows how. It’s great to see kids trusting themselves more.”

Joshua Block, a humanities teacher at the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, agrees. “The end of a [course] period may often feel like a time to slow down and regroup before another set of students arrives. An alternate view is that these last moments, which usually occur when ideas have had a chance to marinate, can be a time when quiet thinkers finally articulate their ideas.”

The one thing deeper learning demands | CTQ

The one thing deeper learning demands | CTQ | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it
Deeper learning isn’t a 21st-century invention.

More than 100 years ago, American educator and philosopher John Dewey called for students to be taught in ways that helped them take charge of their own learning. But the idea of learning by doing has never really “stuck” in the United States.

Jal Mehta and Sarah Fine explain why not: "The qualities associated with deep learning— critical thinking, grappling with nuance and complexity, questioning authority, and embracing intellectual questions— are not ones that (have been) widely embraced by the American people."

Yes, that is right. Anti-intellectualism in the United States has been well documented. (Remember Richard Hofstadter’s 1963 book?)

But deeper learning has taken on a new urgency, Mehta and Fine point out. At the end of World War II, knowledge was doubling every 25 years—now it is doing so every 12 months. Meanwhile, today’s students are likely to hold a dozen or more jobs over their careers. And more and more of these opportunities will require them to work through complex problems rather than applying simple formulas to routine tasks.

In response, many venture capital and philanthropic investors are placing big bets on blended learning in which digital tools help students get the customized support necessary to engage them.


This commitment requires our schools and school systems to look very different, bringing about significant changes in the roles of those who teach.

But here’s the kicker: deeper learning will do precious little for our economy and democracy unless it is accessible to every student. We cannot continue to cultivate the curiosity and competency of the elite while leaving low-income students to make do on pedagogical scraps.


This commitment requires our schools and school systems to look very different, bringing about significant changes in the roles of those who teach.

In today’s interview, part of a series called "The Eminents," I spoke with that theory’s creator, Howard Gardner. We spoke not only about that but about his current work examining U.S. higher education and ethical issues in the professions, including psychology.

Howard Gardner is the Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at Harvard. He received a MacArthur "Genius Grant,"  and has received honorary degrees from 31 colleges. He’s twice been selected by Foreign Policy and Prospect magazines as one of the world’s 100 most influential public intellectuals.
