Make Sure it Adds Up – Critical Thinking
29th November 2021
The Make Sure It Adds Up campaign aims to get more people from across the Bradford District to practice and promote ‘critical thinking’ when receiving and sharing uncertain information either online, in person, or over instant messaging apps.
Critical thinking might be described as the ability to reflect and think independently. When we think critically, we’re able to safely and respectfully question ideas and assumptions rather than simply accept them.
Toolkit and Resources
As part of the campaign there is a toolkit and other resources that you can download to help you understand critical thinking and share the campaign and its messages with others. Download from: https://bradfordforeveryone.co.uk/make-sure-it-adds-up/
