Erudito Licėjus is a School of Thinking
“Learning without thinking is meaningless. Thinking without learning is harmful.” Confucius
At Erudito Licėjus, attention is paid to developing thinking skills. Each member shares general commitments and constantly thinks about what is going on in the educational process.
The entire community is involved in learning to think effectively, critically and creatively, and adapt these abilities and techniques to the joint design of an effective teaching program and activities.
English professor Guy Claxton compares the thinking habits with skills and describes a difference. According to him, abilities are what a person can do but does not necessarily do, and thinking habits are what a person chooses to do. Thus, the habit of thinking means the tendency of a person to behave in a certain way.
Thinking habits are not yet another “discipline” added to teaching curriculum. Thinking habits are “embedded” into school life and curriculum.
