21st Century Problem Solving in the Classroom (St. Mary's Parish PS)

This innovative course for 2019 by PDST TiE introduces teachers to the concepts of 21st century problem solving in a practical manner, using a range of structured activities that can be easily transferred to the classroom. Participants will explore a combination of “offline” and “online” tasks that will focus on the development of pupils’ problem solving abilities.

Teachers will also explore how the methodologies of computational thinking outlined in this course are fundamental in developing the problem solving skills of reasoning, integrating and connecting and communicating and expressing, the improvement of which positively impacts pupils’ learning right across the curriculum. Throughout the week, teachers will use and develop a variety of offline lessons that can be used without any need for computers or tablets. The course will also introduce teachers to the use of STEM-focused manipulatives such as Lego WeDo, Bee-Bots and Spheros which can be incorporated into teaching, learning and assessment from the infant classroom up to sixth class. While primarily focusing on problem solving skills and coding for mathematics, this course will also look at ways that 21st century problem solving methodologies can be used in a variety of other curricular areas.

Other key areas of course content to be discussed and explored during the week also include digital citizenship and internet safety, finding and selecting good quality digital content online and exploring the newly constructed Digital Learning Framework and how a school may go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.
