A researcher, theorist, educator, Siemens is the digital learning guy.

You learned where things were – the nearby playground, all the shops where you could buy whatever you wanted or the park opposite.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: The 8 Elements of The Critical Thinking Process

So what is critical thinking all about ? Critical thinking is a cognitive process that requires disruptive patterns of thinking, ones that question the status quo of propositions and leads to the creation of alternative lines of reasoning. Defining critical thinking as a process signifies by implication the presence of different elements, stages, steps you name it that constitute and shapes its core. These elements are what I want to share with you today.
