"Across the world education for 'thinking', or '21st Century Skills' or 'Creativity' is seen as the key to thriving in the Internet Age. This book provides a much needed introduction and guide to this critical subject. The OECD suggest teaching thinking as key to growing a more successful economy, others claim it is needed for increased democratic engagement and well-being. Teaching for Thinking and Creativity questions what we mean by 'thinking' or 'creativity'in the context of teaching and takes a global perspective incorporating contributions from neurocognitive, technological, Confucian, philosphical and dialogical perspectives"-- Provided by publisher.
