Education And Critical Thinking In Australia – Part 1: A Valuable Argument

You’ve heard of something called the Australian National Curriculum? Perhaps you’ve heard of my friend Michael McRae, who has been contributing resources to a super sekrit project?

Animated and directed by James Hutson, Bridge8. Written by Mike Mcrae and James Hutson:

Part 1 of the TechNyou critical thinking resource.

The resource covers basic logic and faulty arguments, developing student’s critical thinking skills.
Suitable for year 8-10, focused on science issues, the module can be adapted to suit classroom plans.
The resource is found here: http://education.technyou.edu.au/ - more info will appear here later.

    Nice. I think the political landscape in Australia would be much better if more people had a better handle on critical thinking (rather than just blindly following the shock jocks etc.)
