Wicked Problem

In the movie, Argo, coming up with a the best worst solution was the goal to rescue the hostages from Iran.

It was a wicked problem that had only bad solutions. This week in my Applying Technology to Education practice class we had to take a wicked problem in education and find the best solution out of what seems like impossible solutions. My group was charged with rethinking teaching in the 21st century. Take a look at our solution to the wicked problem.

  1. Sarah,
    I thought your group did a great job on the white paper. I could easily tell what problem you researched and the solution to your problem. The multimedia component was very informative. I liked how you used video footage from your google hangout! The only suggestion I have is the visual representation. I had a hard time understanding what point you are trying to get across. Maybe a title and short explanation of what the words on the left means, what the arrow represents, and then what the words on the right mean. Maybe it’s just me but that is the only part of the project I had a hard time understanding!

    • Thanks, Heather! My group is working on that as we speak. A little more information and research will be added to the white paper as well. Thank you again for the feedback-its apprecitated.

  2. Hi Sarah,

    Your group’s project looks great. I think a little bit more elaboration/tie-in regarding with one the questions being asked would enhance your argument. How do you inspire/train/teach students to become lifelong learners with PBL? This is a difficult issue to tackle and I think you guys did well in identifying PBL as a possible solution.
