Eton X Critical Thinking Course
The prestigious Eton College has offered Year 10 and 11 pupils an opportunity to complete an online course in Critical Thinking.
To keep up with our rapidly changing world and stand out from the crowd, students need to be great communicators, great collaborators, adaptable, resilient and creative. EtonX delivers courses that bridge the gap between academic success and life in the real world.
The Critical Thinking course will help students to analyse arguments, recognise problems with reasoning and logic and evaluate the evidence used to support an argument.
A number of pupils have met the criteria for this course which is due to start soon. The following is a student’s reason for doing the course:
"I have previously completed the EtonX Research course and it taught me a lot of useful skills that will help me not only in Year11 and college but in university and later life too. I think Critical Thinking is another essential skill that you will need your whole life so I think this course would be very beneficial for me. I know I will make the most of it and benefit from it as I understand how the course works and the time and dedication necessary."
