How critical thinking can support pupils in their ability to question and think for themselves.
Critical thinking is an important skill in 21st century learning. Education's overall goal is to produce students that will be able to think critically and not just absorb information.
Critical thinking is the ability to think clearly and rationally, and includes the ability to engage in reflective and independent thinking. Critical thinking also builds higher order thinking, speaking and listening skills. It creates respect for others, promotes engagement with learning and enhances educational development. Consequently, this webinar will help teachers:
- Understand the benefits of training pupils in critical thinking;
- With ideas to promote critical thinking in the classroom;
- Demonstrate how critical thinking supports interfaith activities between pupils.
