Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking | Era Digital - um olhar ciberantropológico | 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?

Definitely a skill to master!

Chris Carter's curator insight, July 1, 2015 9:53 PM

Both nature and nurture is my experience, in that nature provides the potential but the skill remains under-developed without nurturing. 

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, July 4, 2015 11:54 PM

An interesting post on critical thinking.  The post debates whether critical thinking is a skill or whether it can be taught.....also contains a couple of videos.

Don't Forget Professional Development for Students

Don't Forget Professional Development for Students | Era Digital - um olhar ciberantropológico | Scoop.it
Teachers spend countless hours learning new tools to use in class, but do they set aside any time for students to learn these new tools as well?

 

Gust MEES: I said this already years ago and I used it also with adults, seniors + kids and it's working well! Just show them one of the tools YOU are using, tell them it's your secret tool (it makes them curious...) and explain how it works and then give them a challenge to do it better...  You will engage them and the challenge will bring out a lot of creativity... BUT, don't make a time limit, give them the time they need to work it out...

 

Tip: read the books of Howard GARDNER "Multiple Intelligences" + "5 Minds for the future" as also books from Daniel GOLEMAN about Emotional Intelligence and YOU will understand...

 

In one phrase: make a win-win situation with your learners, show them your "secret" Educational Tools and use them to engage your learners, they will learn "BETTER" ;) Best would be to make your own curation and share it with them, but also to ask your learners to create also in parallel their own curation about it...

Tech Transformation: Knowledge -v- Wisdom

Tech Transformation: Knowledge -v- Wisdom | Era Digital - um olhar ciberantropológico | Scoop.it

After a typical day on planet Earth ... the Earth will be a little hotter, its waters more acidic, and the fabric of life more threadbare. The truth is that many things on which your future health and prosperity depends are in dire jeopardy: climate stability, the resilience and productivity of natural systems, the beauty of the natural world, and biological diversity.

 

It is worth noting that this is not the work of ignorant people. It is rather, largely, the result of work by

===> people with BAs, BSs, LLBs, MBAs and PhDs. <===

 

Gust MEES: looks like there is a real need of "CRITICAL THINKING" in Education!!!
