We now live in an interconnected world, where the Internet and global communications are simultaneously uniting and isolating us as a society. How do we raise critical thinkers to best face the challenges that face our modern society?"

This infographic provides a look at how we may develop 21st century critical thinkers. Using an image of a brain with eight areas that look at skills we need to know how to use,and that correspond with 21st century skills found in the Common Core and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.

In addition there are six that we as teachers should be doing within our classrooms including:

* Integrate critical thinking skills within and across all content areas

* Establish safe, intellectually risk-free learning environments

* Allow time to develop critical thinking skills.

There is also a section called "Your Students' Path to Critical Thinking" that includes 25 recommendations.

To Get Students Invested, Involve Them in Decisions Big and Small

To Get Students Invested, Involve Them in Decisions Big and Small | Japanese Extension Issues | Scoop.it

"When asked why he became a scientist, Nobel Laureate Isidor Rabi attributed his success to his mother. Every day, she would ask him the same question about his school day: “Did you ask a good question today?”

“Asking good questions – made me become a scientist!” Rabi said.

Questions are critical, and how to manage and navigate a good question requires practice. “Coming up with the right question involves vigorously thinking through the problem, investigating it from various angles, turning closed questions into open-ended ones and prioritizing which are the most important questions to get at the heart of the matter...”

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 4, 2013 10:30 PM

How do we as educators, and our students ask the "right questions" and have our students stay on the question (and learn how they can ask pertinent questions)? How do we do this as more technology is embedded in our schools?
This post states that our questions need to be deeper, "to be open ended, elastic and invite multiple interpretations. Learning outcomes based on the question need to be defined and articulated,  and experiences to achieve those outcomes need to be created with student engagement in mind. Engagement alone is not enough. But engagement matched with outcomes around a carefully worded question propels student learning."

With the Common Core using the Depth of Knowledge as guide, the need for students (and teachers) to understand that we need to move students to Level 3 - strategic thinking and Level 4 - extended thinking, the ability to have students learn how to ask deeper questions is critical.

Did you ask a good question? How many parents motivate their children with this question?
