The Think-Pair-Share strategy is a versatile and simple technique for improving students' reading comprehension. It gives students time to think about an answer and activates prior knowledge. TPS enhances students' oral communication skills as they discuss their ideas with one another. This strategy helps students become active participants in learning and can include writing as a way of organizing thoughts generated from discussions.

Effective educators understand that what happens in educational systems must align with the world students will face in the 21st century. Although it is impossible to know precisely what the future holds, educators do know that students will live in a rapidly changing world where knowledge and information increase exponentially. Individuals will need to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and flexible, creative problem-solvers who work well collaboratively and independently. Students will need to develop habits of mind that help them embrace change with enthusiasm, wonder, and a sharp critical eye.

 

Dr. Allan Luke is an educator, author, activist, and international researcher and policy change agent in all Australian states as well as New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong. His work has influenced educators globally, including in Canada and the United States.

In this webcast, Dr. Luke presents his views and provides an international perspective on the new literacies, with a focus on the importance of helping our students develop critical thinking.
