Critical Thinking for Primary and Intermediate Students (Y5–8) - Auckland

Professional development (PD) Northland, Auckland, Waikato

Posted: 25 February 2021
Notice reference #: 1HAHDT

For primary and intermediate school teachers and leaders:

Part 2 will focus on supporting our children from Y5–8 to effectively and safely interact with information and content online.

As we have all experienced in recent times, misinformation and disinformation are major challenges to our information ecosystem. If adults aren’t sure who and what to trust, then how can we expect our children to make sense of the world? Critical thinking is often cited as crucial to ensuring we, as educators, are giving our children the guidance and support they need. But where do we actually start?

This course will focus on building a foundation of critical thinking skills and dispositions to help our children and young people navigate and understand the digital world.
