Keynote Title: Critical Thinking 2.0 : Thinking, Doing, Changing
Description: What’s wrong with traditional models of critical thinking? How can we take critical thinking to the next level so it deepens learning and leads to real-world action and changes in behavior? We’ll explore these questions before looking at some projects designed not only to encourage critical-thinking but also to break down the classroom walls while creating real change in the lives of our learners and making the world a little bit better in the process.
