Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"Critical thought is a cognitive process that proposes the systematic analysis of information, opinion and statements that we accept in our daily life as valid or true. It is a basic skill for a competent, free and responsible citizen."

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Susan Walker-Meere's curator insight, November 9, 2014 12:49 PM

I would add: Trans-disciplinary thinking; systems thinking for sustainability. Most people can not see the forest through the trees so miss the larger connections of the impacts that action, goods & services have on both environmental systems and human systems.

44 Prompts Merging Reflective Thinking With Bloom's Taxonomy

44 Prompts Merging Reflective Thinking With Bloom's Taxonomy | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"It’s been four years since I first published my “Taxonomy of Reflection.” My interest in reflective thinking is rooted in a simple but powerful statement by Donald Finkel who wrote that teaching should be thought of as “providing experience, provoking reflection.” (Teaching with Your Mouth Shut)."

Love the title: "Teaching with your mouth shut"

Fantastic resource, especially if you take time to really reflect on the sample questions posed.

How Technology is Changing Students Study Habits

How Technology is Changing Students Study Habits | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

People in their 30s now are born before the technological revolution and have in a way or other learned how to use technology in their life and work. This category of people are called digital immigrants. If you are one of them then take a moment and think back to your university or college days when litttle or no technology was available.

How a Nobody can become a Somebody

How a Nobody can become a Somebody | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

This is a great post by Raymond Morin on how Social Influence and Curation are tightly interconnected. "The key to influence is based primarily on the quality and relevance of the content offered", he writes, "Only by adding value to the maelstrom of content on the Web can a blogger reveal themselves as an influence within their network".

 

And he finishes with a precious tip: "always ask whether our contents are worth sharing".

 

This is precisely one of the drivers we had for creating Scoop.it: creating Social Media for the rest of us. Not the celebrities or the movie stars (we like them too!) but the people who - in spite of not being famous - had expertise to share. Everyone has a favorite topic they care passionately about and that is worth sharing. 

 

What is yours?
