"If Nicholas Negroponte can achieve his ambition of distributing $100 laptops to the world's disadvantaged children, he will help redefine philanthropy and see his name added to a list alongside the likes of Carnegie, Ford and Rockefeller." Technology Review
One of the great problems in today’s education systems, is that students are not trained to think critically. In other words, students are not required to think in the classroom; rather they are induced to memorize. Memorization of zillion of facts is what is currently called good education. I don’t think so.
In real life, you have to think how to solve a problem in a given situation, not to memorize all the different historical events similar to the situation you have before you, before you make a decision. That doesn’t work.
In my opinion, an excellent way to promote critical thinking is by asking questions and then trying to obtain an answer. There are no stupid questions in the classroom or the workplace.
Isaac Newton asked why did the apple fall down and not up or sideways, and by answering this “stupid” question, came up with the law of universal gravitation.
Everyone thinks; it is our nature to do so. But much of our thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed or down-right prejudiced. Yet the quality of our life and that of what we produce, make, or build depends precisely on the quality of our thoughts. Misleading thinking is costly, both in money and in quality of life. Excellence in thought, however, must be systematically cultivated.
