In my quest to… how did I put it? “…end world hunger and. . . .[solve] other large problems” I have advanced a step or two. (For some background behind this quest, please read my previous blog post here.)
- I have made arrangements with several schools, educators, and other programs to incorporate problem seeking classes into their existing offerings.
- At EdCampCT [ http://EdCampCT.org ] this week, I lead a workshop on Problem Seeking & Problem Solving where together we:
- …used Brad Ovenell-Carter’s draft of a problem seeking flow chart (linked on this blog post) as a foundation to create a more complete algorithm for how to seek and solve problems (image shown right).
- I am starting up a non-profit organization for students and central to its mission will be a large Problem Seeking and Problem Solving component.
As I make progress, I will continue blog more about my thoughts and experiences. In the meantime, I am looking for feedback for the process outlined in the flow chart displayed on this post.
Thank you to everyone at EdCampCT who participated in this workshop – I hope you found it as helpful as I did! A thank you also to Brad Ovenell-Carter [ http://ovenell-carter.com/ ] for his blog post and for creating what became the first draft of this flow chart.
