The picture above is from a collection of Egyptian art showing a farmer and the resulting bountiful harvest of his labor. I have been nurtured with a mentality of a slave that says only by plowing and man’s sweat can provision be had.
While my site offers visitors the ability to converse, I have a few ground rules so that our conversations will remain civil and courteous.
In short, my goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest, and respectful people. FDG served as Executive Administrator and Program Manager for this highly accelerated design-build project. Continuing a successful relationship with Kennesaw State University, FDG provided services for simultaneous construction of two new parking decks for the University. FDG provided services for the new $28 million Social Science Classroom Building. The Social Science building was the first on the campus to achieve LEED Certification, receiving 39 out of 69 possible LEED points making the project LEED Silver status.
As the graphic illustrates, this is a cycle for learning, it looks pretty close to that of inquiry.
What I really wanted to comment on is how nice and tidy the Problem Based Learning Process is in this graphic.

Having been slaves in Egypt for many years, the Israelites picture of provision is not very far from this picture. Technology plays a role in problem based learning in my class as a tool to find information and ideas.


Im new to this but finding a problem to solve in addition to a solution seems pretty powerful. One thing weve done is to try to problem shoot before we problem solve if that makes sense. My G1 kids didnt really like it at first but got used to it, especially once I stopped giving the kids the answer!

A doctor friend pointed out that for my height and age I need a mere 2100 calories a day to survive.
I love them because a lot of times they are similar to someone else’s questions and can even trigger other questions from others.
I do not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. Thinking is HARD and I can tell when my grade 1 kids are challenged and they all react to challenge and problem solving in a different way. We’ve used Google Forms to help find information from community members and used the data in a similar process to the cycle about (but in an inquiry cycle. I must be giving them intermittent reinforcement by answering too many questions…my own fault. However, whether it is with me or any other visitors of my site, my rule is this: disagree if you must but keep things civil.

Ive observed that some kids give up (initially), use drawings to sort thoughts, talk to others, engage in quiet reflection, or just keep trying even if they keep failing. Often we dont find a solution to the problem or challenge, but the whole point is we tries, practised strategies to help us. Rodney Dietert, professor of immunotoxicology in the College of Veterinary Medicine, co-created a new course, Tools for a Lifelong Career in Research, to give students practical tips to make the most of their research careers by activating creativity. As a human being, you may enjoy the freedom to express your opinions on your own site but not on mine. Its hard to support this but I have to, its the job of the teacher and problem based learning really gets to the meat how we think differently, how we problem solve and use strategies to figure stuff out and make sense of it.
This works well in grade 1 but I also have a critical friend as a professional, our kindergarten teacher who is right next door to my class. Weve rehashed problems later in the year after theyve been shelved and this works sometimes. Dietert co-authored an accompanying textbook on the subject and has given many workshops to share techniques that help scientists gain broader perspectives on problem-solving.“Contemplative practices,” a broad set of activities that facilitate a state of calm centeredness and aid the exploration of meaning and values, are employed in many corners of higher education.
This paper presents the material I’ve developed as well as contemplative practices frameworks in a biomedical context. Dietert finds many parallels between basic elements of the initiative and the Tree of Contemplative Practices framework, and suggests ways other institutions could share similar educational tools.“In an age when students are more wired in than ever, their default is to get information externally,” Dietert says.
Students who learn these things become more resilient because they have multiple ways to problem-solve and access information.
