What Do I Do Next?


The editor of Junior Skeptic magazine, Daniel Loxton wrote an influential essay in 2007, "Where Do We Go From Here?" (linked here) that got all of us interested in the promotion of science and critical thinking excited about the future of this movement.  It has been now followed up by a massive undertaking and published here as a quick list and a longer pdf as "What Do I Do Next?"

Many of them are relevant to us as parents and educators wishing to increase the scientific and critical thinking literacy of our students and future citizens.  Ten suggestions for your community. Eleven for our schools.  Four more for libraries.  Thirteen for online activsm.  105 great ideas all together.

As a teacher and future teacher-librarian I think this kind of critical thinking and science literacy promotion is essential.  Check it out.

Cool! Glad you liked it. :) It was great to get together with the team and throw in some education ideas too. :)

Thanks, Podblack! I've tried to start engaging on some skeptic discussion boards as well. Not much time for that, unfortunately, but good to stay connected with the community.
