Common Knowledge (2)

  • Knowledge comes from accumulation of ideas.

  • For mature learner, we had to provide more rooms for high order thinking.

  • Include different opinions.


Higher order thinking

Higher Order Thinking

  • Higher order thinking is thinking on a level that is higher than memorizing facts or telling something back to someone exactly the way it was told to you. When a person memorizes and gives back the information without having to think about it, we call that rote memory. That’s because it’s much like a robot; it does what it’s programmed to do, but it doesn’t think for itself.
