Free participation in problem solving week
JOIN THE EVENT FOR PROBLEM SOLVERS AROUND THE WORLD
Learning about problem solving in education is now available to everyone interested in the field. In the week that commemorates the birth of a problem solving pioneer, Hungarian mathematician Pólya György, whose book How to Solve It explains the principle behind problem solving, we are organizing the first problem solving week in the region. Through workshops and panels, the attendees will actively participate in the acquisition and application of problem solving skills. Together we are strengthening the global problem solving community and implementing new approaches to education and life, while commemorating the 133rd birth anniversary of this great scientist.
Ko može da učestvuje
na Braifninity weeku?
Brainfinity problem solving week je manifestacija bez granica. Baš kao što je i sam problem solving. Zato je Brainfinity week namenjen apsolutno svima.
Vreme je da učenici zadaju zadatke drugima. Učenici u ulozi autora problema pokazuju svoju kreativnost i umeće.
Kako izgleda nastava oplemenjena problem solvingom? Nastavnici demonstriraju svoje časove i kolegama daju nove ideje.
Kompanije nastupaju sa svojim problemima, dok ih timovi učenika rešavaju. Brainfinity je posrednik između njih.
Jedna od najvažnijih karika u obrazovnom lancu učešćem na Brainfinity weeku dobija status “Brainfinity problem solving school”.
I edukacija roditelja je važna. Brainfinity radionice pomoći će roditeljima da se lakše suoče sa dečijim zahtevima.

Veština budućnosti koja momentalno donosi vidljive pomake
Po pisanju Svetskog ekonomskog foruma, problem solving je jedno od najvažnijih umeća 21. veka. Najjednostavnijim rečnikom može se objasniti kao “umeti što bolje se snaći uz sve dostupne informacije”.
Problem solving podrazumeva rešavanje realnih životnih problema koji nastaju svakodnevno i to uz pomoć inteligencije i kreativnosti.
Drugi o Brainfinityju
Zašto je Brainfinity naišao na pohvale i prihvatanje među populacijom?
„Veliko mi je zadovoljstvo što je moja ekipa učestvovala na Brainfinityju, takmičenju koje promoviše STEAM predmete i problemsko razmišljanje. Sve ono što pomaže učenicima da se snalaze na tržištu rada.”
Sanja Ječmenica, nastavnica
„Mislim da je ovo sjajna prilika da naučimo kako da efikasnije i brže rešavamo probleme u timu, što će mi kasnije značiti za budući posao.”
Vojin Prokopijević, učenik
„Brainfinity meša matematiku i realnost. Posebno mi se sviđa što je interdisciplinarno. Brainfinity vrednuje upravo to – kako da rešite problem koji nije samo fizika ili samo srpski jezik, nego je matemastrohemogeolingvistika.”
Nemanja Đorđević, član žirija Brainfinity 2020
„Učenici su na opipljiv način, kroz zadatke videli šta znače problem solving i timski rad. Kao nastavnik, stekla sam veliko znanje na Brainfinityju kroz upotrebu savremenih digitalnih tehnologija u obrazovanju. Dinamično, zanimljivo, jedinstveno.”
Aleksandra Živković Gavrić, nastavnica
„Problem solving je nešto što je našoj deci veoma potrebno. To je i njima i nama nastavnicima veliki izazov. Brainfinity iziskuje nove veštine i dobro razmišljanje. Očekujemo još zanimljivije zadatke u budućnosti.”
