Developing problem-solving and decisionmaking skills in students: Student-led process to resolve school-related problems

Description - To develop problem-solving and real-world skills in students, enable them to develop and implement solutions on their own to resolve problems being faced by them.    1. Enable students to brainstorm on different issues facing them and to narrow down on one single issue. (In this case, the issue was that water used to fill in the road leading up to school) 2. Guide students to think of probable solutions to the issue at hand. (In this case, the students the students decided to build a path around the space where water used to fill up. For this, they announced their plan in the prayer assembly and also prepared a plan of materials required.) 3. For implementing the plan, divide students into groups. 4. Facilitate the implementation of the plan by the students. (The students met the bricklayers in the village and understood how to lay bricks.) 5. Enable the students to get the required materials. (The students got equipments to lay the road as well as pebbles, stones to fill it)  6. Document the project and share it with others.   Developing solutions to real-world problems and working in a group to implement them gives students an opportunity to develop collaborative skills along with increased problem-solving ability, which leads to faster cognitive growth.   “Learning takes place both within school and outside school. Learning is enriched if the two arenas interact with each other.”- NCF
