BUILDING PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT IN TODAY’S WORLD

“As repetitive tasks are eroded by technology and outsourcing, the ability to solve novel problems has become increasingly vital.”

“Across the world, an OECD study found a strong and positive correlation between performance in problem solving and performance in maths, reading and science.”

According to the World Economic Forum : “Digital resources to teach and measure foundational subjects like literacy, math, and science are well represented, but ed-tech for higher-order competencies like critical thinking and problem solving, and character qualities like grit and initiative, are not adequately covered by existing education technology, the researchers found.”

“.. it teaches students HOW to think in a systematic rational manner. The ability to apply logical reasoning and deduction directly impacts a student’s performance in math, science, and daily life. Playing not only improves attention but also self-regulation and executive functioning skills.”

“Students must first establish the rule to a group of puzzlers, hypothesize and try out a course of action, and adapt their response accordingly. This teaches flexibility and the ability to remain open to possibilities, but with your feet planted firmly on the ground.”
