Critical Thinking Workshop

During the year 2011 - 2012, Mathematical Sciences students have participated in a  long-term workshop covering 10 urgent topics, notably,

  1. Redefining Illiteracy
  2. Dropping out of High School! Why?!
  3. Critical thinking
  4. Thinking outside the box
  5. Public speaking
  6. Logical Fallacies
  7. Equipped For the Future (E.F.F)
  8. Job interview
  9. Culture shock
  10. Google Search
Below there is a link to the reports. We hope they will trigger new ideas to enrich the discussion. The 21st century type of learning has to cope with the technological boom which obliges youngsters to face the huge flood of information. School should provide them with tools and methods susceptible to fit for the era. To question and evaluate material - print, audio or video - is all that they need to update. The epoch doesn't need the learned - that's an outdated and archaic term-, it needs learning people instead; I mean life-long learning. So it's a lot of hard work and patience. Students should start questioning and teachers should start listening, hence negotiating content on a global scale with a wider vision using critical thinking. This project never ends; it will regularly be checked, rectified and eventually recycled. The rapid change is waiting for no slow main stream thinkers to make their minds on a decision to be taken. Critical and creative thinking will surely allow the learners to go beyond conventional approaches and surf in the cloud. See what I mean. Thanks for your patience...
