Blended Learning And Critical Thinking
These modern days are undoubtedly the time of information and communication technologies in all spheres of human life, education and learning processes being not the exception. It is impossible to imagine a person who is in some way outside the information flow. The abundance of information existing and continuously appearing in this flow requires us to be able to analyze and systematize this information, evaluate it for reliability and cut off everything invalid or inessential. These skills are sure to be developed by critical thinking. But how are they learnt and sharpened over time? And how can you become a better critical thinker to make improved decisions, process information more effectively and express yourself more clearly? What measures and tools should be used to advance your critical thinking abilities? Blended learning is believed to be one of these tools, which, in addition to our common teacher-student educational path, also uses the information space, organizing it to maximize its involvement in creating our own educational strategy. The article discusses the possibility of using blended learning for the formation of one of the most important components of critical thinking - the ability to apply analytical skills in various life situations.
