Defining Critical Thinking

Defining Critical Thinking | Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it
Everyone thinks; it is our nature to do so. But much of our thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed or down-right prejudiced. Yet the quality of our life and that of what we produce, make, or build depends precisely on the quality of our thought. Shoddy thinking is costly, both in money and in quality of life. Excellence in thought, however, must be systematically cultivated.

When Does Real Learning Happen? | Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it
Learning, the real learning, happens… When you are intentional about learning When you are driven by an intrinsic need to advance and not only by external triggers and rewards. When you ask more questions to get to the WHY of things (and then to what and how) When you carry an open frame of mind

Sylvianne Parent's curator insight, September 6, 2015 1:09 PM

Lorsque les élèves éprouvent de grandes difficultés à l'école, il est primordial de leur enseigner à développer un esprit de croissance personnelle axé sur les efforts et les défis personnels. Le concept de growth mindset est vraiment intéressant pour illustrer aux enfants que l'intelligence et le succès n'est pas fixe mais relié aux efforts aux tentatives et aux réajustements. Voir Carole DWECK l'auteure de ce concept.
