Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) and Creative Thinking

Higher Order Thinking Skills include skills such as creative and critical thinking, analysis, problem solving and visualization.

Compedia is a world leader in teaching and enhancing Higher Order Thinking Skills and Creative Thinking through games. With the “Invention Highway” series, that includes interactive stories, riddles and games, Compedia introduced to the world of Educational Software an engaging method of honing and expanding these skills.

We begin developing thinking skills activities starting from pre-school age as we state that it is easier to teach kids fundamental concepts like critical thinking when they are young. Our thinking activities can be used to engage students, develop skills of analysis and reflection, encourage critical thinking from early ages and develop logical skills.

Educators world-wide, as well as U.S.A. Common Core Standards and the PISA international exams, now acknowledge Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) and Creative Thinking to be fundamental elements in the educational toolkit and key factors in successful education.
