Developing critical thinking in environmental education: a video study of classroom discussions on socio-ecological issues in secondary schools


Kyburz-Graber, R; Wolfensberger, B; Hofer Kurt, K (2003). Developing critical thinking in environmental education: a video study of classroom discussions on socio-ecological issues in secondary schools. In: 4th ESERA conference "Research and the Quality of Science Education", Nordwijkerhout, The Netherlands, 19 August 2003 - 23 August 2003.

Abstract

An important task of science education is to develop the ability to judge the meaning and significance of scientific progress and future perspectives. It is widely agreed that students should be enabled to deal with scientific innovations and to utilize them in a critical and responsible way. This process demands integrating scientific knowledge, knowledge about social processes and awareness of personal and social values. Increasing judgement skills by applying critical thinking is thus a relevant element of science education today.
