Course: Imagine a world where nanny-bots look after your children, an ear implant keeps you connected from anywhere and everywhere, and everyone lives in a giant building that combines work, play and home. Problematic? Future Problem Solving students think so. FPS (Future Problem Solving) is a proven programme with an outstanding reputation, both nationally and internationally. Students are taught skills of creative, critical and ethical thinking within the framework of some of the world Ûªs most significant issues. In small groups of four, students learn to self-regulate their learning as they collaborate with an existing or emerging international issue. They think in futuristic ways to create modern ways to solve problems. Because the students learn to look forwards and identify potential challenges before they come to them, they are more likely to overcome them effectively in real life and deal with them better.
The programme is particularly fitting in this climate of innovative change in New Zealand education as it fits the concept of the seamless curriculum, and covers all the essential skills of the New Zealand Curriculum Framework.
