Beyond the Far Cliffs - Thinking Clearly | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it

"All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think. The trouble is that men very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work."   (Thomas Watson, IBM)

James Schreier's insight:

The items on this topic are related to thinking and information on brain research.  The items posted are frequently directly related to one of my most popular management training programs -- Thinking Clearly and Analytically.

Multitasking is an essential skill in the era of email, text messages, Facebook and Twitter. But, argues neuroscientist Daniel J Levitin, it’s actually making us less efficient

The reality is -- as this article correctly points out -- is that it is impossible to "multitask."

A nice article with some important principles for Socratic seminar. One of them, "Avoid doing all the work for them," is a key component to any seminar experience. This often takes the form of "gradual release of responsibility," since students need to be taught skills first before they get a chance to practice.

Gaming Boosts Children’s Math Reasoning as Effectively as Studying

Gaming Boosts Children’s Math Reasoning as Effectively as Studying | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it

In a study of thousands of children ages 3 to 18, a 1-hour-a-day increase in video-game time on weekdays was found to increase mathematical-reasoning scores by 9.3% of a standard deviation — about the same as spending the time studying, either inside or outside of school, says Agne Suziedelyte of Monash University in Australia. The effect is larger in families that invest more time in their children. Video games appear to improve children’s problem-solving ability, a skill that is useful in many life and work situations, Suziedelyte says.

Critical Thinking Requires Knowing What Questions to Ask

Critical Thinking Requires Knowing What Questions to Ask | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it

The ability to think critically, as conceived in this volume, involves three things:
1. an attitude of being disposed to consider in a thoughtful way the problems and subjects that come within the range of one's experiences,
2. knowledge of the methods of logical inquiry and reasoning, and
3. some skill in applying those methods.”
Critical Thinking is most often required when we have a ‘problem’ to solve and a knowledge gap preventing us from reaching a sound conclusion or making good judgments. Because there are as many, or more, interpretations of the word ‘problem’ as there are for diversity, big data, or critical thinking, it is not always clear what questions to ask to close the gap. Fortunately, because the word ‘problem’ is often used when we need to manage change, we can use the three fundamental types of change to define three distinct types of ‘problems’ and the key questions we need to answer to close the knowledge gaps:
a. Past change that has occurred - What did change to affect performance achieving expectations?
b. Present change we are considering - What should change to enhance performance achieving expectations?
c. Future change that might occur - What could change to affect performance achieving expectations?

How to Develop 5 Critical Thinking Types

How to Develop 5 Critical Thinking Types | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it
Great leaders think strategically. They can understand and appreciate the current state as well as see possibilities.

Sharrock's curator insight, March 22, 7:57 PM

This type of strategic leadership requires five different types of thinking. Knowing when and how much to utilize each one is the hallmark of great leaders.

Critical thinking is the mental process of objectively analyzing a situation by gathering information from all possible sources, and then evaluating both the tangible and intangible aspects, as well as the implications of any course of action.Implementation thinking is the ability to organize ideas and plans in a way that they will be effectively carried out.Conceptual thinking consists of the ability to find connections or patterns between abstract ideas and then piece them together to form a complete picture.Innovative thinking involves generating new ideas or new ways of approaching things to create possibilities and opportunities.Intuitive thinking is the ability to take what you may sense or perceive to be true and, without knowledge or evidence, appropriately factor it in to the final decision.

Here’s Why People Trust Human Judgment Over Algorithms

Here’s Why People Trust Human Judgment Over Algorithms | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it

People think they learn faster than machines, according to research. When research participants were asked to bet on either their own prediction ability or the clearly superior acumen of an algorithm, they were more likely to bet on their own ability if they had seen that the algorithm was imperfect, according to a team from The Wharton School. This is a case of algorithm aversion, Walter Frick writes on HBR.org: People don’t like to rely on algorithms, especially if they’ve seen them fail, even a little. To err may be human, but when an algorithm makes a mistake, we’re not likely to trust it again.
