Young children now days tend to question all the things around them, and it is part of development. one of the important part of children development is to improve their cognitive skill include their critical thinking. This capability uses in daily life that give the children ability to communication, decision making, solving problem and take some action for that. There are so many things to improve children’s critical thinking, such as games, socio-dramatic play, and technology. Some said, you can use technology to improve many aspects of critical thinking and some say it is only worst the things. Some claim that using technology such as video interactive, games, television, digital tablet or else can trigger children’s critical thinking, but some said technology can squash child’s critical thinking. Now days kid tends to depend on gadget in daily basis, such to spend some lazy time another, that make that affect their critical thinking’s skill. Critical thinking is like a pathway, it will lose its skill if you are not use wisely and continuously. So they conclude if children don’t use their memory and analytical skills, they will lose it over time.
