The changing economy of the 21st century has placed an increased demand on critical thinking skills.
Critical thinking occurs when students analyze, evaluate, synthesize information and apply thought to form an argument, solve a problem, or reach a conclusion. Students must be able to analyze information from diverse sources and devise working solutions in a changing world. Mind Missions challenges require critical thinking to engage successfully in the creative problem solving process. Each element of Mind Missions lessons informs students of a step taken during critical thinking and problem solving.
“The biggest challenge for our front-line employees is having the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills they need to be effective, because nobody is there telling them exactly what to do. They have to figure it out.”
