3.1.5 Scenario performance: Creating new options for demonstrating problem solving for children beyond the square

The options available to educators to develop problem solving skills in students tend to be focused on communication skills around the written word, or are based around 'Western' conceptualisations that are specific to certain cultures. However, the use of futuristic story telling performances enables students from cultures where oral storytelling is prized or students who have learning difficulties such as dyslexia, to develop and demonstrate their problem-solving skills. This presentation outlines one such option: Scenario Performance, which is part of the global non-profit Future Problem Solving Program.
