With the world around us changing so rapidly and with a constant focus on the importance of value education, students must learn the techniques of critical reasoning and problem solving. It’s a similar situation and challenge for adults and young learners as they need to develop these skills to negotiate the constantly evolving environment around them.
By definition- the ability to find solutions to a problem by identifying an issue or a challenge, investigating the root cause of that problem, prioritizing it, and examining the best possible options to find and implement a resolution or multiple resolutions, constitute problem solving skills.
If we talk about the reason why problem-solving strategies or skills need to be taught to young learners, the first thing which comes to mind is that it helps students understand what is happening in their environment, identify what they would like to change, and then make problem-solving strategies to find a solution to create or generate the desired outcome. Problem solving strategies also provide a sound foundation for continuous improvement, communication, and learning. A wonderful way for ensuring that students are aware of the happenings of the world is the morning assembly where news and relevant trending topics are discussed.
Every student has his own set of talents and skills and learns at their own pace. Therefore, it is necessary to teach students to be determined and creative in their approach towards problem solving and challenges that come their way —whether at a global international school like GGS, at home, or later in professional life. It is also important to encourage problem solving at home for students to understand how to handle situations on a personal front as well.
We at Genesis Global School continue to help students to enhance their problem-solving abilities through several games and activities.
