The Importance of Creative and Critical Thinking in a Rapidly Evolving World

Jamaica Stevens407

More and more research shows that automation and artificial intelligence will be shifting the landscape of the world we know today. Creative and critical thinking will become increasingly more important as it informs job skills and life skills. In addition, ADHD, dyslexia and autism are all becoming more identified. As the world is changing, we as leaders have to ask ourselves if we are providing our teachers with the tools that they need to successfully teach our students. In this workshop we will talk about how to create an environment and curriculum that foster creative and critical thinking. We'll focus on how to train your teachers to become creative thinkers themselves so that they are able to lead by example and positively impact all children in their classroom helping them thrive in this ever changing world.
