Reference: Critical Thinking in Education



  1. The current system of education must advance from Industrial Age approach of one size fit all.

  2. It must meet the need of critical thinking in the Information Age.

  3. The needs of Information Age may be called E-Learning.

  4. E-Learning is not only learning online but it is also about development of the ability to self-learn.

  5. E-Learning is about developing the course content that is divided into modules.

  6. The beginning module should provide a simple overview of the subject. It should clearly state its fundamental postulates and teach its basic concepts.

    For example, please see Remedial Math Level 1.

  7. The subsequent modules should teach advanced concepts of that subject according to their logical development.

    For example, please see Remedial Math Level 2.

  8. The student must learn each module with 100% mastery before moving on to the next module. The advance must be based on understanding and performance.

  9. If a student cannot master a module 100%, then he may simply audit that course. That course shall not be deemed as part of his official curriculum.

  10. E-learning is about learning with understanding. Putting stress on the student to pass a certain grade at a certain time is not part of E-learning.

  11. E-learning is about putting the student through a customized curriculum that explores his potentials to the maximum.

  12. E-Learning is about filling the holes in the student’s understanding as and when confusions arise.



  1. You don’t have to wait for the education system to change for you.

  2. Go out and take responsibility for your own education.

  3. Don’t just rely on the formal education system to make the most important decisions of your life–of what you learn and how you learn it.

  4. Listen to the following talk by a successful student:

  5. You may read the following book of an unusual student:
