The final one of Halpern’s skills that needs to be learned in fostering higher order thinking skills is consensus seeking.

As I have written articles about the need for higher order thinking skills (cognitive enablers), I have stressed the need for a way to formally learn these skills. There is no argument that these higher order cognitive enablers are some of the skills that will remain, for the foreseeable future, exclusively human and highly valued in the world we now find ourselves in.
