ABSTRACT

Much of knowledge about the world comes from indirect experience such as, obtaining information/knowledge from others, rather than direct experience. Growing up in an environment, filled with information and claims made by the media and on the internet, it is essential to understand how children come to develop skills of evaluating various sources of information. Recent years have seen much increase in the amount of research related to this topic, regarding the development of critical thinking. The aim of the present paper is to provide an in-depth review of this growing field, involving the development of selective trust, a bias in trust in testimony, and evidential reasoning. Based on the extensive literature review, encompassing papers published internationally as well as domestically, the paper aims to provide a comprehensive and thorough introduction to the major discoveries made in this field and to suggest future studies that can help further illuminate the development of critical thinking.
