Webinar 1 - 21st CS

As part of our 21st Century School Programe with the British Council programme, we are organising a series of Education dialogues, which will help you connect with colleagues from Albania and Kosovo and share your experience. 

On 19 June 2020 we will host a live session on ‘Teaching critical thinking and problem solving in the classroom’.

As educators, we often hear about the importance of teaching critical thinking skills to our students. What we hear less, however, are the most effective techniques for teaching those skills and how teachers can implement them in the classroom—especially now that schools are forced to provide virtual instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  1.  What is critical thinking and why it is important in the classroom?                                                         
  2.  What are some of the instruments that we can use to improve critical thinking in the classroom?          
  3.  What are some of the platform online that we can use ?                                                                    
  4. How this platforms can help us as teachers to improve critical thinking of our students?

We tried to answer all these questions during our session.
