Abstract: It is understood that although critical thinking and problem solving are recognized as skills that are essential for success, particularly in the 21st century Digital Economy, they are not explicitly taught as part of the curriculum in many educational institutions. To make a contribution to an understanding of how critical thinking and problem solving can be taught effectively, the present paper draws upon the work of one of the leaders in critical thinking and problem solving to illustrate how these skills could be taught using De Bono's Six Thinking Hats Model. Following an exposition of the key tenets of De Bono's Model, the paper discusses how each of the Six Thinking Hats could be used in an effective pedagogy.
