EdTech: Developing digital problem-solving skills


Developing independence in solving practical problems is an important life skill and essential for employment.

This module looks at how we can go beyond reliance on chance and build some of these events into the assignments, tasks and experiences we create, making a controlled space for confronting and coping with such problems, as individual learners or as groups.


To improve learners' digital problem solving


After completing this module you will:

- be able to adopt a range of teaching approaches to help learners develop skills in solving problems with the digital tools and media they encounter
- design learning activities that encourage the development of these skills and their application to other contexts or situations

The ipsative, 'forced choice' approach, where learners have no choice but to continue working 'unplugged' throughout parts of their assignment is both imaginative and at the same time models the 'real world' where work cannot stop when the internet goes down.

Our Response: A comment is always helpful, thanks.
