Hello,everyone, This is Chavellier. Today,Let's talk about applying critical thinking to my learning strategies.That begin.
There is a saying is the creation of the human can not do without critical. Critical thinking means weighing up the arguments and evidence for and against.Edward Glaser, who developed a test of critical thinking,defined it in this way:critical thinking calls for a persistent effort to examine any belief or supposed form of knowledge in the light of the evidence that supports it and the further conclusions to which it tends. In fact, can say that all human inventions have a common foundation, it is critical - creator of critical thinking.
Developed media so that people in the midst of a vast amounts of information surrounded by every day, but unable to distinguish authenticity. People are becoming more and more depend on experts. We often hang in the mouth is "TV" "newspaper said" "online", but there is no "I think". We are passively, uncritically accepted flocked to the large amount of information every day.This is a frightening trend, over time, we don't know the criticism, and even can't remember going to the criticism.
So, how to apply critical thinking,This is a problem,In my opinion,you should stand back from the information given,exam it in detail form many angles,then check whether each statement follows logically from what went before,last compare the same issue from the point of view of other theorists or writers.In the same way,in the aspect of learning also need critical thinking,teacher or book said not all is right,we can not blindly listen to what is what,we should learn to use critical thinking to accept knowledge.when you reading,writing or listening,you can work in a critical way, for example,you can ask yourself how do we know this is true,how reliable is this is true,or what could be going on below the surface.Therefore, criticism is not scientific giant's patent, our daily life also need to critical thinking
