Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.

Critical Thinking is Thinking On Purpose!
Critical thinking involves mindful communication, problem-solving, and a freedom from bias or egocentric tendency. It’s clear, rational, logical, and independent thinking. It’s about improving thinking by analyzing, assessing, and reconstructing how we think.
You can apply critical thinking to any kind of subject, problem, or situation you choose.

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens | Educommunication | Scoop.it

In working with students, critical thinking encourages and promotes:

Humility to accept criteria that is not their own.Courage to defend their own criteria against others.Responsibility to contrast and take into account the appropriate information.Commitment to filtering out and separating valid from useless information.Respect for the group and for the individual when the time comes for debate and contrasting ideas.

To educate an individual in critical thinking is to educate him or her to be capable of governing or controlling their own personal and professional life and to be able to find answers and solutions to problems. It is the road to forming critical and responsible citizens who are capable of confronting the challenges of the future.

Excelente reflexão sobre a importância do Pensamento Crítico para a educação de cidadãos competentes. O que ele implica e o que promove.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, February 22, 2014 8:45 PM

So many students simply want the answer...no thinking involved, the easy way. We are doing our youth a tremendous injustice not emphasizing both the metacognitive and critical thinking processes. They need to be able to explore a problem, then analyze, explain, and evaluate it in order to survive as adults.

Debunking Handbook: update and feedback

Debunking Handbook: update and feedback | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"When we published the Debunking Handbook, I have to admit, we completely underestimated the impact it would make. A few days after the launch, it suddenly went viral with over 150,000 downloads in a single day. This week, it just ticked over 400,000 downloads. We always planned that the Handbook would be useful not just for climate myths but for communicators having to deal with any type of misinformation."
