Knowledge is a tradeable commodity and a driving force in global life. Modern learning is about using information to construct new understandings. Students need the ability to control knowledge - to access, organise, analyse, evaluate and use information effectively. This program looks at specific higher order thinking skills - those that can be applied both in the classroom, and life beyond it. Content must be rich and contribute to the use of thinking skills and strategies. We show how a thinking curriculum can be introduced to and applied in the classroom.
