(Posting on NE—NASBAT English also being the Center for Critical Thinking; by one NEB)
Critical thinking is one important skill that must be trained. It is an ability that cannot be acquired naturally; it should be nurtured in education. And as (critical) thinking is realized in language—and, therefore, they both are intertwined, NE—NASBAT English is also best a place to train this capability. Thus, we render you the Center for Critical Thinking, abbreviated into CCT. We offer this both in Indonesian and English. In the program, critical thinking dispositions are taught, trained, and put in today’s context where it is most needed such as understanding mainstream media hidden agenda, analyzing mainstream media content so as not to be misled, understanding how social media works, knowing how people sell and propagate also deceive others using social media, knowing hoax from true information, and influencing people the correct yet effective way. This program is mainly intended for teenagers going to junior and senior high school because they are the ones mainly exposed to different kinds of information; the program also targets others in need of critical thinking skills such as university students, company employees, and people at large http://nasbat-english.com/?s=critical+thinking.
