Pen! - a creative approach to the development of handwriting and problem solving
The purpose of the Pens! Project is to develop and promote handwriting and drawing skills, increase problem-solving skills and the quality of learning. The project focuses primarily on the implementation of pre-primary and primary education curricula with digital solutions.
The purpose of the Pens! Project is to develop and promote handwriting and drawing skills, increase problem-solving skills and the quality of learning. The project focuses primarily on the implementation of pre-primary and primary education curricula with digital solutions. Equally, handwriting and problem-solving skills can be promoted in all sections of the population by providing materials that are open to practice and study.
Research literature shows that handwriting and drawing have a connection to learning. Therefore, supporting handwriting through digital means is very important and useful. Research shows that it improves the quality of learning.
Problem-solving skills play a key role in the ability of future adults to face challenges and innovate solutions. In addition, problem-solving strategies learned at an early stage support learning and creative problem-solving skills throughout life. However, these skills and strategies should be practiced in a guided manner and according to the learner’s own abilities and skills.
Combining the practice of handwriting and problem-solving skills brings the two key elements of learning together. Practicing these together creates a sustainable basis for lifelong learning, perceptual development and the ability to innovate, as a result of which more and more citizens will be able to create new solutions and also develop business and jobs. This project is therefore far-reaching and socially significant.
Project results can be measured in the short term by problem-solving skills, drawing perception and creativity metrics. Various indicators will also be developed for the project to monitor progress. (problem-solving tests, perception tasks). The validity of the results can be assessed using peer groups, where research group A works regularly with the material produced by the Pen! Project and research group B works without access to the material. The effectiveness of the project should also be extended to the adult population by providing material as an application solution for the adult population. Thus, a similar peer group study can also be carried out for the adult population by finding out whether the material increases the problem-solving skills and perceptual abilities of those who regularly study.
