Webinar – Raising Creative and Critical Thinkers
13th August 2020, 8:30pm to 9:30pm (Singapore Time)
Creative and critical thinking are both listed as 21st century skills, with some believing that these are THE most important skills for the future.
In this rapidly transforming information age, it is no longer sufficient for our children to have solid academic or industry knowledge. They also need to possess the ability to think deeply through issues, work collaboratively in teams, communicate clearly, manage an unending flow of information and come up with novel ways to solve problems.
Gain the latest neuroscientific and parenting insights on how to nurture creative and critical thinking in your learners – essential 21st century skills that can determine their future success.
Attend this webinar to:
- Learn what the science says about creative and critical thinking being an issue of “right-brain” versus “left-brain” abilities
- Uncover the latest neuroscientific insights behind creative and critical thinking, including the 3 key brain networks involved
- Take home research-based strategies to help your learners develop stronger creative and critical thinking
Suitable for: School administrators, teachers, counsellors, psychologists, allied educators, therapists, parents or anyone interested in the learning brain.
Maximum Capacity: 1000
