GLOBAL ISSUES PROBLEM SOLVING IN 2023 AND BEYOND...

In 2023 Future Problem Solving Australia is making three significant improvements to the Global Issue Problem Solving program. These are
    •    Implementation of FPSOnline.
    •    Enhancements to the Category List.
    •    Adoption of the FPSPI GIPS program evaluation guidelines.

FPSOnline
FPSOnline is a web-based platform provided by FPSPI. FPSOnline automates the submission of student booklets and the distribution of evaluations. It allows students to complete a booklet collaboratively online or traditionally using a paper booklet.
FPS Australia will work with coaches to make the transition to the FPSOnline platform smooth and hassle-free. Instructions and guidelines for FPSOnline use will be shared with coaches during the 2023 school year.

Category List
The Category List used for Steps 1 and 3 to increase creative thinking has been extended to include culture and religion, ethics and morality, science and two possible miscellaneous categories. Each category now has detailed definitions.

FPSPI GIPS Evaluation Guidelines
The FPSPI GIPS Evaluation Guidelines have recently undergone a rigorous and thorough review by the international evaluation committee, providing educational enhancements to how student work is assessed.
Please note that the changes to the evaluation guidelines will not greatly impact how you teach your students how to respond to each step’s requirements. Apart from the expanded category list, the most significant change is the addition of a requirement in Step 6 to explain how your highest-scoring solution in Step 5 addresses your criteria.
Overall, these changes allow the team to think more carefully about each step of their booklet to ensure there is a logical flow between all steps. 



WISHING YOU ALL A FABULOUS SUMMER HOLIDAY SEE YOU NEXT YEAR
