Puzzles - The Puzzle School

Puzzles - The Puzzle School | technologies | Scoop.it

Puzzle School's goal is to foster a love of learning while educating learners.

 

Creating environments and products that teach through puzzle-like situations can make learning an enjoyable experience where learners often experience "Flow" as they take on harder and harder challenges.

 

To solve puzzles individuals, or groups, create theories or hypotheses about what will work and then test those hypotheses, learning from both successes and failures to form better hypotheses.

 

In order to develop hypotheses efficiently they need to look for patterns that will inform their hypotheses.

 

These pattern-matching skills are at the heart of our ability to communicate, be creative, problem-solve, empathize, and many other abilities that are enormously beneficial throughout life.

 

I particularly liked Refraction which many Functional Skills practitioners may want to take a closer look.
