Resumen

Este artículo examina los desafíos y oportunidades para desarrollar el pensamiento crítico en la era digital, con un enfoque en la necesidad de una "epistemología digital" nueva. Revisa la literatura actual sobre el estado deficiente de las habilidades de pensamiento crítico y los retos particulares de los entornos digitales. Delinea un marco conceptual para una epistemología digital que priorice el pensamiento crítico integrado con alfabetización digital e informacional. Destaca estrategias pedagógicas efectivas como instrucción directa, aprendizaje basado en problemas, verificación de hechos, reflexión metacognitiva y comunidades de indagación digital. Concluye con un llamado para reformas sistémicas y mayor investigación para cerrar la brecha entre la visión de un pensamiento crítico robusto y la realidad educativa.

Abstract

This article examines the challenges and opportunities for developing critical thinking in the digital era, with a focus on the need for a new "digital epistemology." It reviews the current literature on the deficient state of critical thinking skills and the particular challenges posed by digital environments. It outlines a conceptual framework for a digital epistemology that prioritizes critical thinking integrated with digital and information literacy. It highlights effective pedagogical strategies such as direct instruction, problem-based learning, fact-checking, metacognitive reflection, and digital inquiry communities. It concludes with a call for systemic reforms and further research to bridge the gap between the vision of robust critical thinking and the reality of education.
