The world is rapidly changing, children need to be able to do much more than repeat a list of facts. There’s too much information available at the touch of our fingers than we could ever need, read, know and understand. The problem is that not all of that information is accurate and it can be very easy to get sucked into believing something. Our children need to be critical thinkers who can make sense of information, analyze, compare, contrast, make inferences, and generate higher order thinking skills. Critical thinking is the ability to analyze information to establish it’s veracity or truth.
Teaching our children to question facts and seek more information is very important. Sadly, most Filipino kids they don’t know how to question facts or even raise questions if they don’t understand a matter. Let’s face it, most schools here, they have a lot of kids in the classroom about 40-50 students and only one teacher. The teacher simply can’t have all the kids questioning and challenging each fact. But teaching kids to mind numbingly follow directions leaves them open to many dangers.
Kids need to learn to ask questions, to analyze information and recognize facts. If they learn to ask questions properly, which means asking the right questions to parse down to the facts, then they can filter it to get to the truth. Guiding your child’s critical thinking process can have a positive an impact on their problem-solving skills and leads to greater creativity and curiosity.
Developing a critical mindset is becoming one of the most important skills for success in our information saturated world. Let us arm our child, protect them, and teach them how to think critically while analyzing the world around them. This is what exactly encouraged our CDO franchisee to franchise SAM Singapore Math. “It’s the thinking math that encouraged me to get this program not just for my kids but to able to share it to my community where I belong.”
