Puzzles , Problems and New Learning
John Jenkins
I wholeheartedly agree about the difference between 'puzzles' and 'problems'. However, for me, there is a problem of context. The AL sets I have been involved with all take place in the workplace, or the community, in which the 'problem' is seen to belong. So often this predisposes participants, and often the audience, to view the issues in purely 'local' terms.
If a 'new problem' requires truly 'NEW LEARNING' then the set members need to raise their thinking to a new level. In the past I have struggled to achieve this, often with limited success.
