Critical thinking is an essential tool in today’s highly complex and confusing world. Without explicitly taught structures to reasoning, thinking is ill formed, disorganized, biased, narrow, and without direction. By using a critical thinking approach to learning, your students build background knowledge, strong academic vocabulary, and enhanced content understanding.
In this edWebinar, learn how to construct challenges that develop critical thinking throughout any content area, especially in an online platform. Assist your students in developing effective conscious thinking that is organized, open and fair minded, well reasoned, and communicated clearly. Additionally, this session highlights how virtual learning can enhance deeper learning.
This recorded edWebinar will benefit K–12 teachers, administrators, special education professionals, and gifted education professionals.
