In the newspaper a story of an Afghan boy. (The boy in the picture is not connected to the real event) He left his little village and went to Pakistan and there a religious person told him to do a suicide attack on his fellow Afghans. The boy listened and went to do this duty. In Afghanistan he met another religious person, this one told him suicide attacks are forbidden. So he did not pursue. (He was arrested)
The Afghan boy is just an example. This story is an example of the need for critical thinking.
What did this Afghan boy need to think critically?
And is it possible to acquire that asset with help of a mobile device?
MNovel: “… The story, called Kontax, was published in English and in isiXhosa. Readers were invited to interact with it as it unfolded – teens could discuss the unfolding plot, vote in polls, leave comments, and finally submit a written piece as part of a competition for story sequel ideas. The project aims to contribute to the understanding of mobile literacies, and teen reading and writing using their mobile phones…”
One could use this method to present a story about a critical thinking person, give discussion opportunities, and ask the readers for ideas for the next story.
Is reading and writing a mnovel way to learn to think critically? http://www.shuttleworthfoundation.org/projects/m4lit/is it possible to start a mnovel project without a big budget (m4Lit has a 77.000,– dollar funding)
