Summary: This is a TEDxBrisbane talk with Jesse Richardson, the founder of schoolofthought.org. In his talk, he discusses the need to stop teaching students information and to start teaching them how to think. His thinking is that we need to teach children how to think creatively. By doing so we will be teaching students not only how to think, but how to be adaptive and how to innovate in order to solve problems. Along with this, we need to teach critical thinking skills to teach students to be able to change their thinking and be able to be wrong which then leads to growth.
Evaluation/Opinion: I found this TEDx to be engaging and I liked his view that thinking creatively and critical thinking skills are two sides of the same coin. The School of Innovation is intriguing as is yourlogicalfallacyis.com and yourbias.is. I agree that this is what we need to be teaching our youth so they will be ready for the world we are leaving them.
