Critical thinking D1-2 Eta

Both sessions were worthwhile and fascinating. I learned more about critical thinking over the course of two days, and I want to thank Bhargavi ma’am and Bhumit sir for their contributions to knowledge-sharing.I also found the sessions interesting while learning about the importance of critical thinking in life with real examples.We also engaged in group activities.Using examples, we also learned about systems 1 and 2..I particularly liked how our facilitators pushed everyone to participate in the deep discussions that took place over the course of these two days.We watched the film ¨Oppenheimer¨, and after that We had an in depth discussion on how we could relate the movie to other

Critical Thinking – ETA

The interactive approach and sharing of diverse perspectives enhanced my understanding. The Oppenheimer movie was like a catalyst that changed my perception. It emphasized on ethical considerations in critical thinking. The cases that were discussed and various perspectives helped us to understand situations cases through various lens.


There must be no barriers to freedom of inquiry … There is no place for dogma in science. The scientist is free, and must be free to ask any question, to doubt any assertion, to seek for any evidence, to correct any errors. – Oppenheimer

On the similar lines – Being open minded and look for diverse perspectives and gaining knowledge, correcting errors is how we humans grow. That is the essence of life and that is what we are trying to do through the Critical thinking classes.


Critical thinking

This life class helped me to realise the importance of active listening. Rather than merely waiting for my turn to speak, I now engage in active listening, focusing on understanding the speaker’s perspective fully. This shift has helped me identify any potential biases or assumptions that might influence my response. By acknowledging these biases, I can respond more thoughtfully and present my ideas in a manner that is both respectful and persuasive.  Also on day 2 experiencing dramatic experience by Christopher Nolan was super fun!

Critical Thinking Day 1 and 2 (July 2023)

Great learning, great resources shared. There’s a shift in perspective. Both days were mind opening. Will definitely read the book Thinking Fast and Slow, having kept in my reading list for a while now. Like the body needs rest for rejuvenation, the brain needs Life Classes to think clearly.

Oppenheimer was good too, thankyou for the experience and for thinking and planning so meticulously. I will definitely be more mindful, analyze every piece of information and then form my opinion / perspective. Also, Critically Thinking ≠ Being Critical.


Thankyou Bhargavi Ma’am, Bhumit Sir and all the Life Class Participants.

Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is a vital skill that involves analyzing, evaluating, and synthesizing information to make informed decisions and solve problems effectively.
We start out first day with activity like secret code ad sharing this secret code with other othet participate. And then we start start What is Critical thinking? When apply in our life. And we also learned about system 1 and system 2 of thinking process with our daily life.
Day – 2 We watched a movie “oppenheimer” where the whole movie was about atom bomb. And discuss on the different perspective of the participants.

Think Hard! Critical Thinking1

Recently had the privilege of attending my life class on critical thinking. The two-day workshop covered an array of essential topics that left a profound impact on my teaching approach. Additionally, the experience of watching the thought-provoking film “Oppenheimer” added a new dimension to my understanding of critical thinking and its real-world implications. In this blog, I will share my insights from the two days session and the connections I made with the movie. The day 1 kicked off by emphasizing the undeniable importance of critical thinking in today’s world. We were reminded of our responsibility to equip students with the skills to analyse information objectively, question assumptions, and approach problems from various angles. On day post movie a thought-provoking decision unfolded during the balance between scientific research and ethical considerations. We must address the ethical dilemmas that may arise when scientific advancements clash with societal values. The discussion inspired us to  weigh the implications of their decisions beyond the scientific realm and consider the broader consequences of their actions. The movie screening of “Oppenheimer,” a captivating film that delves into the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist often called the “father of the atomic bomb.” As I watched “Oppenheimer,” I couldn’t help but draw parallels between the movie’s themes and the topics we explored during the training. J. Robert Oppenheimer’s story exemplified the complexity of critical thinking and the ethical challenges scientists can face.

The movie “Oppenheimer”  reminder that knowledge without ethical considerations and critical thinking can lead to unintended and destructive outcomes. We have a crucial role in nurturing the next generation’s ability to think critically and consider the impact of their decisions on the world.

Overall, the session and the film provided a powerful combination of theory and real-world application, motivating me to approach my teaching with renewed passion and commitment to fostering critical thinking skills among my students. I am grateful for this enlightening experience, and I’m excited to integrate these insights into creating a positive ripple effect for years to come.

Critical Thinking – ETA : ” A deep thought for any thought”

“Thinking in depth with valid and logical reasoning” is what critical thinking is about.

Fountainhead always takes care of the personal & professional development of their employees. Bhargavi Ma’am & Bhumit Sir as our facilitators for critical thinking gave us really good topics and keywords to have a lot of discussion on the first day of our life class. We got to learn about how actually critical thinking plays a major role in our lives. The questions asked by them as to how, when, where, why and what critical thinking is, the answers were within us only, we just did not know to apply them.

Now since that we have the basic & generalized knowledge about it, we can start thinking and taking decisions though critical thinking. Having group discussions is a plus point in these life classes because we get to know many other perspectives and opinions which might not happen to come in our minds.

Secondly the movie which we saw the other day “Oppenheimer” was a great movie and it truly had a lot of critical thinking involved in it. After doing life classes the movies which we watch makes a lot of sense as we see it from a different perspective. This movie showed how certain times we are bound to take decisions in pressure despite of our own self denying to take those decisions. Here the actor J. Robert Oppenheimer was very passionate about his work and when he found a path shown by his professors to turn his theories into implementing it practically by making a nuclear bomb, he achieved what he always imagined and dreamt of but knowing the consequences he was devastated internally by the thought of it. But since it was for his country he could not put a foot backward, as his superiors didn’t allow him to. Moral ethics of the actor was clearly shown in the movie, but certain times despite of critically thinking about the situation he could not do justice with his moral ethics. The movie had a lot of political & government involvement in the making of the nuclear bomb.

Also when it comes to duty towards country and law, one has to go with the duty ethics. The movie was worth a watch and made us also think how thinking critically is applied when taking any kinds of important decisions of life.

Critical Thinking _ Eta

Critical Thinking life class for the first two days was extremely helpful in knowing about the what, when, why, how, where, and who of the involved subjects. We require Critical Thinking in all walks of life for better decision-making and living a life with less of barriers. The facilitators in the class were helpful and gave extended knowledge on the topic by taking real-life examples. Though personally, I am a critical thinker, light was thrown on various dimensions like politics, media, ethics, and moral character from different perspectives. There was a debate kind of on topics such as Astrology, Vastu Shashtra, and politics. Day two started with the movie Oppenheimer. Being the movie based on scientific invention, it was more of critical thinking on ethics versus the value of knowledge, politics, duty biases, decision making, and student-teacher approach to the field of education that we are in. Both days were enjoyable along with tons of perspectives.
