From Lucky Life Lessons to Effective Problem Solving

By: Jaime Neely - Sep 20, 2014
This collection of presentations on critical thinking discusses the growing problem of people possessing knowledge, but not being able to apply it and make a difference. Today's student is unable to critically think. It is too often the case that students will simply memorize a list of formulas and facts, and when given a project without specific or distinct instructions, they are unable to move forward and solve.

This doesn't just happen within the classroom -- many work environments are also experiencing it. Too often are people behaving in ways that are reactive as opposed to proactive.

Many brand experts and innovators credit organizations such as Apple for its ability to anticipate what consumers' needs without having to discover them through dissatisfaction and complaints.

These presentations on critical thinking not only offer effective problem-solving methods, but they also demonstrate the need to approach knowledge differently.
