leave a comment »

Today’s children are growing up into an ever-changing and unpredictable world. As educators we need to respond to this by equipping young learners with the skills required to face those challenges. One of the most important assets to be developed is critical thinking, as it enables people to assess new information, understand unexpected challenges, think ‘outside the box’, make decisions, solve problems and evaluate their own performance – in other words, to develop tools for lifelong learning. In this session, Herbert demonstrates how we can enrich young learners’ language learning through engaging them in real-world thinking tasks that lead up to the development of critical thinking skills.
