i wonder… | Teach Skills, Not Facts

Why are critical thinking and science literacy skills important among students? How can teachers help students learn these?

I wonder webinar 13 Dec 2023 LN

Why is science a compulsory subject in elementary and high school? Is it to introduce students to facts that are likely to change or become obsolete with time? Or is it to equip them with skills like critical thinking, information literacy, and scientific literacy that can be useful in meeting many real-world challenges? How can teachers help students develop such skills? 

Join us as we explore these and many other questions in an interactive discussion with Melanie Trecek-King and Vijeta Raghuram.

The discussion will be in English.
