Teaching Students to Solve Complex Problems

June 14, 2017 0:29

The leadership of the South Fayette school district, where just 13 percent of students live in poverty, has a clear vision for how teaching and learning with technology should look: “computational thinking,” “human-centered design,” “innovation mindset”—the district’s intermediate school is literally built to reflect its embrace of such concepts. Owens talks about the district’s goal of preparing students to solve the world’s most vexing problems by teaching them how to think in sophisticated ways.
