Better Questions Are Key

I saw this gorilla at the zoo this week-end and he seemed to be deep in thought.
Stuart Firestein said on TED that we should pursue better questions, rather than simple answers. “What we don’t know is what makes a good question. What do you know and how much do you know about it? What can you ask about it?”
This is the 21st Century critical thinking that we’re always hearing about. Kids need to learn to ask questions and seek answers…as they learn how to learn.
