First “C”: Critical Thinking
Critical thinking is the evaluation of sources such as data, facts, observable phenomenon, and research findings. It also involves drawing reasonable conclusions from a set of information and determining useful and less useful details for solving a problem or making a decision.
Teaching children this 21st century skill allows them to be creators of their own knowledge. Spoon-feeding information does not nurture the natural capability of a child to learn, rather it makes the child dependent on others. Critical thinking, on the other hand, makes the child independent in finding answers to his/her questions. The great Jean Piaget once said “When you teach a child something, you take away forever his chance to discover it for himself.”
Here at Rainbow Room, we ensure that the children are active learners and critical thinkers to make them 21st century ready. The children always give meaning to what they are learning and not just get information from the teacher. The discussions are inquery-based to ensure that the children get involved in finding out answers.
