Readiness Tomorrow’s thinkers are sitting in our classroom today. Today's students must expect to face serious competition in a global marketplace. "Readiness" in the 21st century is about helping students be able to take what they know and apply it to new situations and problems. Preparing students to succeed in this competitive environment is the challenge before us. Working together to bridge the gap between what businesses need, and how schools prepare students to meet and exceed those needs and become productive leaders is what 21st century learning and thinking is all about.

CoRT Thinking Programme Apply CoRT Thinking (PMI) Tools to get more information
Edward De Bono - CoRT Thinking The essence of the CoRT Thinking Method is to focus attention directly on different aspects of thinking and to crystallize the aspects into definite concepts and tools that can be used deliberately. The three basic principles underlying CoRT Thinking are as follows: Thinking is a skill that can be developed, Most practical thinking takes place in the perception stage. The tools method is used to teach thinking. The CoRT Thinking material has been introduced to Form 1 and 2 students at SainsKu, and is proving effective in getting them to think critically about a range of issues. Some of the most widely used tools are PMI (Plus, Minus, Interesting) CAF (Consider All Factors) and OPV (Other People’s Views).
Perpectives Thinking - Edward de Bono, Six Hats: "The quality of our thinking will determine with quality of our future" - Edward de Bono Early in the 1980's de Bono developed the 6 Hats framework for thinking. There are six imaginary thinking hats, each having a different colour. Each of the 6 hats represents a different type of thinking. When you "put on" one of the hats, you exclusively operate in that mode of thinking.
Things that make Sainsku as Thinking Skills School Method of ImplementationEvidence 1. The use of ‘Graphic Organisers’ such as: Mind Maps Fishbone Graphic Etc 2.
