Καλό καλοκαίρι σε όλους σας…
Χρειάζεστε οπωσδήποτε ξεκούραση, νέες παραστάσεις και … τροφή για σκέψη!

Dr. Tony Wagner, co-director of Harvard’s Change Leadership Group has identified what he calls a «global achievement gap,» which is the leap between what even our best schools are teaching, and the must-have skills of the future:
* Critical thinking and problem-solving
* Collaboration across networks and leading by influence
* Agility and adaptability
* Initiative and entrepreneurialism
* Effective oral and written communication
* Accessing and analyzing information
* Curiosity and imagination.
With increased societal polarization, especially political, where people are bombarded with «facts» and opinions by pundits and experts, too many people choose to blindly follow their pundit of choice like rats following the Pied Pipers, without really thinking and questioning. I’ve felt that if more people were exposed to critical thinking principles, they might at least be able to identify when statements, opinions and actions aren’t completely rational. This video is about teaching some very basic critical thinking standards with the intent to intrigue the viewer enough about critical thinking to learn more about the subject.
This is the first video in the series on Critical Thinking. In this short video, I provide a simple overview of the topic.
