Thinking skills can be defined as patterns of thinking that can help learners go beyond the mere recall of information and enable them to explore and make sense in their world, to reason and problem solve, as well as to plan, create and invent.

Although we are all born with a capability to think, there is ample evidence to suggest that we can learn to think more skillfully. Thinking skills refer to processes of thinking and learning in a wide range of contexts.

Developing thinking skills is therefore a part of learning!
