Title Constructing the problem solving citizen
Author(s) Dahl, Jonas
Date 2013
Editor(s) Lindmeier, A. M.; Heinze, A.
English abstract
In the poster, I describe how different agents (curriculum makers, national test makers and teachers as test makers) make use of the different kinds of problems (pure/applied) in relation to the goal of producing problem solving citizens. I also report on a pilot study in which students were interviewed on their perceptions about problems and problem solving. My initial analysis shows that discussions of problem solving, as well as descriptions of the kinds of problems that are or should be used in policy documents are ambiguous. Applied problems seem more commonly used for teaching and assessing problem solving. The pilot study suggests that students can see the difference between pure and applied problems and recognise that this difference is important in regard to their future as problem-solving citizens.
