Round table on critical thinking
At Jovan Jovanović Zmaj Grammar School in Novi Sad, with 3rd year students, we organized a round table on critical thinking.
Approximately 20 students attended the event, and discussion lasted 1,5 hours. As a starting point we presented two opposite sides from the climate changes debate (alarmist vs. denialist). We went through several prominent arguments from both sides and analyzed how and to what extend they distort scientific facts. Towards the end we discussed general critical thinking skills: what are they and how they can be applied.
