what is critical thinking?

Teachers treat consultants like us as a “wild animal” in their domesticated zoo (I mean school), where there is times tested rules and regulations. So when we say new jargon words like critical thinking, creative thinking, it creates more sense of uneasiness than motivation for action. “How can we teach critical thinking to kids as young as six year old?” Teachers always wanted to teach (???) and I told provide opportunities that lead to critical thinking rather than teaching critical thinking.

what makes learning fun?

We had lively interaction with teachers. Normally teachers won’t be forth coming with correct description of problems they face. But this time, they opened up. Their question “what else we need to do to make sure the students taking their learning tasks and daily responsibilities seriously?”

Last week we conducted a workshop on creative thinking skills to both parents and children alike in Coimbatore. I always feel happy for interacting with children, since when I connect with them through their thinking process; I discover my own thinking process. At the end of the day, you feel satisfied to make children to talk, to discover the concepts and to be friend with strangers like us. The event was well covered by the Print media and you can look at the write up on miyav learning here in Deccan Chronicle and in The Hindu.
