Thinking

Thinking

In large part due to technology advances, the world as we know it has, and continues to change. The world that our students are navigating, negotiating and attempting to understand is now fundamentally different. The way in which knowledge is gained, built and shared requires students to think more critically and creatively than they have ever needed to before.

21st Century Learners require particular skills to equip them for a modern world of work, one of which is the ability to think, and think well.

At Sherbourne, we recognise how important it is for our students to develop complex thinking skills. Critical and creative thinking is one of our general capabilities integrated across the whole curriculum.

Through problem-based and inquiry-based learning programs, students’ at Sherbourne have increased opportunities to develop their independent thinking skills, manage new situations and solve challenging problems.
