there are some ways to encourage students to highly participate in thinking skills process in class such as computer-assissted instruction in class,research that supports the use of several specific thinking skills in class such as CoRT(cognitive research trust), HOTs (higher order thinking skills), etc.

besides the teachers themselves must highly enthusiasted in teaching and encouraging students to think.

plus, i think our ministry should change the syllabus into learning that requires students to think.shouldnt they?

Perhaps most importantly in today’s information age, thinking skills are viewed as crucial for educated persons to cope with a rapidly changing world. Many educators believe that specific knowledge will not be as important to tomorrow’s workers and citizens as the ability to learn and make sense of new information.

Lists of alternative definitions could also be generated for other terminology commonly used in the thinking skills literature. In an attempt to come to terms with these definitional differences, Alvino, in his 1990 “Glossary of Thinking-Skills Terms,” offers a set of definitions which are widely—though not universally—accepted by theorists and program developers. For purposes of the present report, these definitions are applicable. They include:

  1. BLOOM’S TAXONOMY. Popular instructional model developed by the prominent educator Benjamin Bloom. It categorizes thinking skills from the concrete to the abstract—knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation. The last three are considered HIGHER-ORDER skills.
  2. COGNITION. The mental operations involved in thinking; the biological/neurological processes of the brain that facilitate thought.
  3. CREATIVE THINKING. A novel way of seeing or doing things that is characterized by four components— FLUENCY (generating many ideas), FLEXIBILITY (shifting perspective easily), ORIGINALITY (conceiving of something new), and ELABORATION (building on other ideas).
  4. CRITICAL THINKING.The process of determining the authenticity, accuracy, or value of something; characterized by the ability to seek reasons and alternatives, perceive the total situation, and change one’s view based on evidence. Also called “logical” thinking and “analytical” thinking.
  5. INFUSION. Integrating thinking skills instruction into the regular curriculum; infused programs are commonly contrasted to SEPARATE programs, which teach thinking skills as a curriculum in itself.
  6. METACOGNITION.The process of planning, assessing, and monitoring one’s own thinking; the pinnacle of mental functioning.
  7. THINKING SKILLS.The set of basic and advanced skills and subskills that govern a person’s mental processes. These skills consist of knowledge, dispositions, and cognitive and metacognitive operations.
  8. TRANSFER. The ability to apply thinking skills taught separately to any subject

thinking skills in globalization period

•May 14, 2008 • 1 Comment

as world getting more globalized, people need to be critical as they can..as for instance, they have to think about the advantages and disadvantages when inventing something.is it highly impacted to the environment or not.information technology as the medium which people can express their thinking skills such as blogging.through this medium we can exchange ideas among peoples in the world.

unfortunately, some of this people are violating the benefit of this medium.they build porn web and even condemning others through their website.this is what we called as pros and cons of new inventing.thus,let’s ask ourself (evne me myself) whether i’m using it in correct way or not.

CoRT by Edward de bono

this programme was published by de bono in 1974.there are many types in this programme such as Consider all factor (CAF), plus,minus,interesting (PMI) and etc.

whether we realize or not some teachers use this method in class.and definetely, this programme is beneficial to the students and for some extent they can develop their creative thinking.i guess students nowadays are mofe creative and active.so,let them generate their ideas or opinion in class by using this method.

wonder if thinking skill is not integrated in learning.so how could the learning process is undergone?

it doesnt matter whether critical or creative thinking skills should be integrate in class.both of those thinking skills are crucial during learning process.thinking skills in learning can generate  ideas and even reflect on our thinking.students can actively involve their mind and thinking in learning.and for some reasons corporating thinking skills in learning are highly effected in learning process. teachers should also play their roles in class as the facilitator for the students.
