Critical Thinking with Garfield Gini-Newman
Teachers and 21st century curricula recognize critical thinking as one of the most important educational goals. Yet it can be challenging to embed in everyday teaching. Teachers ask, "What are practical and effective ways to invite critical thinking? How can I use technology to help my students develop critical thinking? How are creativity, entrepreneurial thinking and critical thinking related?" Join Garfield Gini-Newman, Senior National Consultant with The Critical Thinking Consortium, as he explores these questions and provides concrete examples of inviting critical thinking across Alberta programs of study.
