LC Module: Scenario Solutions

“To learn problem solving is to learn how to learn. Problem solving develops students’ high level thinking/critical thinking and scientific thinking skills. It merges old knowledge with new knowledge and unites theory and practice. (Akınoğlu and Özkardeş, 2007).
“Problem-based learning research shows a slightly positive effect on achievement scores with much larger positive gains on indicators such as: critical thinking and problem solving skills, abilities related to accessing, analyzing, organizing, and communicating information, student attendance patterns and disciplinary behaviors.” (Glassgow, 1997; Jones, Rasmussen & Moffitt, 1997 as stated Haney, 2005).
