Mull Over Monday is a time we will encourage curiosity and creative thought, while working on "Critical Thinking Skills" like:
Inquiry - a seeking or request for asking the truth, information, or knowledge
Questioning - an act of instance of asking
Claim - an assertion of the truth of something
Evidence - the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid
Reasoning - the process of thinking about something in a logical way in order to form a conclusion or judgement. : the ability of the mind to think and understand things in a logical way.



Critical thinking
• is the ability to think clearly and rationally, understanding the logical connection between ideas.
• is the ability to think clearly and rationally about what to do or what to believe. It includes the ability to engage in reflective and independent thinking. Someone with critical thinking skills is able to do the following : understand the logical connections between ideas.
• is thinking about things in certain ways so as to arrive at the best possible solution in the circumstances that the thinker is aware of. In more everyday language, it is a way of thinking about whatever is presently occupying your mind so that you come to the best possible conclusion.



Critical thinking might be described as the ability to engage in reflective and independent thinking.

In essence, critical thinking requires you to use your ability to reason. It is about being an active learner rather than a passive recipient of information.

Critical thinkers rigorously question ideas and assumptions rather than accepting them at face value. They will always seek to determine whether the ideas, arguments and findings represent the entire picture and are open to finding that they do not.

Critical thinkers will identify, analyse and solve problems systematically rather than by intuition or instinct.

Someone with critical thinking skills can:


  • Understand the links between ideas.
  • Determine the importance and relevance of arguments and ideas.
  • Recognise, build and appraise arguments.
  • Identify inconsistencies and errors in reasoning.
  • Approach problems in a consistent and systematic way.
  • Reflect on the justification of their own assumptions, beliefs and values.



BREAKOUT CHALLENGES:


How do you play a Breakout EDU Digital game?
Breakout EDU Digital games come fully loaded and ready to play - no setup required. Simply navigate to the page and begin looking for clues. Our best advice - click on everything possible. If you see something clickable, it’s worth a look. Other clue types include bolded letters, Google Apps documents, invisible text, and whatever else we can come up with! The games require a degree of critical thinking and will not always be completely straightforward. Additionally, some clues act as red herrings.

How do I know when an answer is correct?
When an answer is correct, the box on the Form will no longer be outlined in red, and the red error text will disappear. You must have all the lock answers correct before you can move on to the second part of the form to receive your badge.

How do I get a hint?
We have a hint hub hidden in plain sight on every page. Look carefully! Speaking in multiple languages is always a valued skill

What is the educational value of these games?
All of the games promote the 4 C skills: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity, which are valuable skills students need as we progress through the 21st century and beyond.
