Garfield Gini-Newman on...Inspiring Wonder through Learning and Thinking

Sunday, August 12, 2018

How can schools remain relevant in a digital world? This is a question Garfield Gini-Newman has been asking and looks to answer, based on his work and research around developing critical thinking skills with students. He argues that schools must inspire wonder and help students develop the intellectual tools for deep learning with suggestions on how educators can bring this about to prepare our students for an undefined future.
Garfield Gini-Newman is an associate professor at OISE/University of Toronto and the senior national consultant with The Critical Thinking Consortium. He has worked with thousands of teachers across grades and subjects, helping them to frame learning around engaging and provocative activities and authentic assessments.
