Oh, if only were that easy. problem solving skills are critical, and a structured way of thinking. For many kids, I think this is where we fall short. Not scaffolding these processes sufficiently

Problem solving is not an innate process (in this context). Just as they do in Maths, I think we need to teach key Problem Solving skills.

HyperStudio - The Digital Humanities Laboratory at MIT

HyperStudio - The Digital Humanities Laboratory at MIT | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

.Located at an intersection of the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciencesand the Comparative Media Studies Program at MIT, HyperStudio is at once a group of scholars and developers, a laboratory, and an idea: to bring cutting edge digital technology to the humanities. HyperStudio works with innovative educators at MIT to integrate technology into their research and teaching with original content and media delivery platforms, or to imagine new, dynamic ways to innovate humanities learning with contemporary tools in tech. In addition to the project-based approach that is meant to conceptualize, support, produce, and otherwise shepherd digital humanities ideas brought to them for development by other members of the MIT community, HyperStudio continually works on in-house projects that offer knowledge, services, and tools for public consumption, increasing awareness in the new ways modern humanities scholars can interrogate their fields.
