The ability to think critically and constructively, to tolerate a diversity of opinions is the key to successful social integration. The term ”critical thinking” is used with various meanings in various fields. Experts claim that critical thinking is manifest in two fundamental dimensions: a social one, which asserts that collaborative learning and work contributes to the edification of human solidarity, and a pragmatic one. According to the latter, learning is based on the development of critical thinking, which gives way to the dynamic involvement of students in activities, by challenging their curiosity.
