ABC's Big Ideas 9 June 2020

Big Ideas

"Confirmation bias. It’s enemy number one of all balanced and evidence-based debate. This urge to believe what you’re already convinced of, regardless of the facts.
The solution is ‘critical thinking’ – the skill to discern emitted variables and wrong causalities, to look at all sides of an issue.
And then to align your point of view with the evidence."

Critical Thinking presented by Gresham College. April 22, 2020.

Speaker
Alex Edmans - Mercers’ School Memorial Professor of Business at Gresham College, Professor of Finance at London Business School

Duration: 54min 5sec
Broadcast: Tue 9 Jun 2020, 8:05pm

This is a Rich Task challenging students to design a survival pack for families whose homes are under threat from fires. They are to decide which items to take with them according to a limited budget.

TeacherTeacher: Caution. Do not use this activity where fires have devastated communities.

Duration: 6 - 8 Lessons.

Introduction from a BTN video
https://youtu.be/sRdY3xhr2wc

 

Scenario:

"You are a team of volunteers designing survival packs for families whose homes are under threat from the fires.

You will be using a budget allocated to your team to create a survival pack. All items selected must fit inside a 2x1m trailer.

Each family which your team is assigned to lives in a different area and has their own needs.

You will need to be creative and show critical thinking (and your budgeting skills) to determine which items will best support your family.
"
