The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking

"Big idea: Teaching kids to ask smart questions on their own

A four-year-old asks on average about 400 questions per day, and an adult hardly asks any. Our school system is structured around rewards for regurgitating the right answer, and not asking smart questions – in fact, it discourages asking questions. With the result that as we grow older, we stop asking questions. Yet asking good questions is essential to find and develop solutions, and an important skill in innovation, strategy, and leadership. So why do we stop asking questions – and more importantly, why don’t we train each other, and our future leaders, to ask the right questions starting from early on?"

I agree with the fact that recently,students have been 'trained' to give the correct and not ask smart questions.In school ,teachers usually ask us questions and if we answer that correctly, we get praised.For subjects sciences and humanities require a lot of questioning and thinking in order to understand and to learn  more quickly.In my opinion, i think that teachers should give students a chance to ask questions that they have and not go through a topic blindly.If the students is shy to ask, the teacher could create a website so that the whole class can ask questions whenever they feel like and both the teachers and students themselves can answer the questions.This would enable the student to think out of the box to ask and answer questions by themselves

The power of the Infographic is that it references both teacher and student actions and habits. I have shared it with my teachers. This might become a solid self-assessment tool for coaching conversations with teachers.
