Introduction to Problem Solving in the Information Age: New, free book by Dave Moursund
(Moursund, D.G. (October, 2007). Introduction to problem solving in the Information Age. Eugene, OR: Information Age Education.
This free, short (99 pages) book is intended primarily for preservice and inservice teachers of K-12 students, and the teachers of these teachers. In this book, the term problem solving includes posing and solving problems, posing and accomplishing tasks, posing and answering questions, and posing and making decisions.
Problem solving is an integral component of every academic discipline. Humans solve problems using their physical and mental capabilities, and tools that they have developed. The Information Age has brought us a wide range of computer-based tools that are powerful aids to problem solving. Now, more than ever, it is important to stress problem solving and higher-order critical thinking throughout our educational system.
