HIGH ORDER THINKING SKILLS – THE NEED OF THE HOUR

- ‘Your child is doing great in Mathematics? Nice’.

- ‘Your child is excelling in Science? Very Good’.

Glad to know that your child is doing well at their school. But ever wondered ‘Is that all”? “ Are we preparing for what the future needs are?” Have you stepped back a bit and wondered that the education system hadn't changed much from your school days?

Before dwelling deep on these questions, let’s have a quick look at a recent study by McKinsey, Global Research Institute.

  • Problem-solving,
  • Critical thinking,
  • Innovation &
  • Creativity
Are some of the essential, fundamental skills that are most lacked among the employees of today's generation.

WHERE IS THE GAP?

While being proven effective in so many ways, traditional systems of education lack a method of developing skill sets of the future.

There is a lack of focus in systemically developing the above-foresaid skills in demand, creating a gap in education system goals.

WHAT ARE HOTS?

Higher-Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) is a concept in education reform that distinguishes learning outcomes from the traditional education system. The skills include:

  • Synthesizing,
  • Analyzing,
  • Reasoning,
  • Comprehending,
  • Application,
  • Evaluation & More Importantly Creation!

WHY HIGHER-ORDER THINKING SKILLS?

Thinking is a cognitive process done consciously to get a sense of everything in and around us. By creating, examining, reasoning, applying, etc., HOTS transfers the knowledge and helps process these facts and information, which further enhances and kindles natural cognitive learning.

In an education age with easily accessible educational content, anytime anywhere teaching and flipped classrooms, students must apply higher-order thinking skills to actively self-learn, multi-skill, and level up to future demands.
