1)I think the dimension I am most likely to miss in number 7. When you act, monitor the implication of your action as they begin to emerge. I have a tendency to not look back after I think I have solved the problem. I am working on this problem of mine and taking this class has helped me take a look at how I have handled solving some of life’s problems. I have had many of the years and now see I could have handled some of them better with critical thinking. In the future I will try to look at what action my problem solving has caused and rethink some of my answers to problems.

  • 2)How do I approach a problem I would have to say depending on what the problem consists of I would calm and collectively approach it. Use my critical thinking skills and experience to avoid certain pitfalls and to complete what I set out to fix on the problem of the task at hand. All of these videos since day 1 of week 1 have helped me get a more understanding of critical thinking and how to approach each subject task at hand in a calm and collective manner. I believe that each video has made me more aware and gave me a better understanding which is very helpful
  • 3)Hi Samuel,I agree with your post. I also approach a problem in a calm and collective manner, at times we are presented with a problem to solve, and automatically our brain reacts, and we tend to stress out and get nervous. I used to get like this when I first became a computer technician. I was presented with all these issues at once, and it was an overload for me. I couldn’t think straight, and my mind was running a mile a minute because I was trying to problem solve about ten different issues at once. As time went on, I learned to be calm, and just approach things one at a time, and not all at once. I agree the videos we have been watching the past few weeks have been so helpful and has given me more of an awareness on what I need to fix in my critical thinking skills, especially at work.
  • 4)If you would like to address the question asked in the description of this Learning Activity, please respond to this post.

The question is:

What actions can you take to ensure your own arguments and solutions do not contain fallacies? Discuss how believing certain fallacies can present disadvantages when making decisions or solving problems.

5) As part of my troubleshooting training, I continuously stress the importance of testing their logic and avoid statements like, ”You shouldn’t see that error again!” Or thinking like “The Internet MUST be down since I can’t get to the Internet either.” Making these kinds of statements as “Facts” can come with credibility damaging consequences. If we take the “Math Equation“ approach and show our work methodology, we will see if our decisions & arguments hold up under scrutiny ourselves, prior to announcing to the world “Eureka, I’ve solved it!”

A method I use is a good, repeatable process of “IF/THEN“ checklist approach..

6) I really like the Pearson critical thinking video, it really breaks everything down for you in a five minute video. The video talks about the steps the solve a problem and things that are important in problem solving. It also talks about how “any subject can be thought about critically” and how critical thinking is used everyday. The video reminds us of the importance of asking questions and to analyze information. This video is a very good explanation of critical thinking and I have found that this topic is coming up more and more. We talked about thinking critically in the class I teach in today and how to analyze, research, and come up with a conclusion which were all talked about in this video.

7) I had rewatched the videos, and I like the Problem-solving video. I noticed how they had an issue with the product, then they quickly got the best people together to analyze, brainstorm, and come up with a better plan to fix the issue. They use critical thinking during this process and have to find a conclusion to the problem to keep customers happy.

I will use this technique in my daily life all the time. Every day I have to problem solve at work, I will always have computer issues, meetings with doctors to come to up with ideas for our department. Outside of work, my family life, we discuss dinner plans, things to do on days off, and figure out bills. These are some things I would use every day and also learn to make critical decisions.
