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.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, February 22, 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.

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.

UNESCO Global Media and Information Literacy Assessment Framework Country Readiness and Competencies

"UNESCO’s Global MIL Assessment Framework encourages Member States to take concrete actions to help citizens to become media and information literate. It also invites them to assess how favourable the national environment is for MIL initiatives and to determine existing
competencies among key social groups, such as teachers in service and in training. In this way, it brings us ever closer to the vision of a world in which all persons may achieve their potential in their personal, professional and societal lives."

While the potential of distraction is there, the right social media teaching strategies can lead to creative learning, and a productive approach to making social media part of ongoing professional development.
