Commentary by Stephen Downes

Link to and discussion of an article on critical thinking education (unfortunately locked away from normal people by a subscription wall). A sample: "The introduction of high-stakes testing into schooling has played into the agenda of an extreme rightwing government by fostering a mentality in schools of cramming for tests that measure knowledge but not critical thinking about this knowledge." I'm not done with this issue: new technologies call for a new approach to critical thinking, and I would like at some point to lay out the foundations of that.
