Call out for Real World Problems & new workshops

Hi there

I hope you enjoyed your summer break and are motivated for the year ahead!

No doubt as you get back into work the challenges you face in 2018 are starting to emerge. You may be looking to solve these in a completely different way to what you have in the past and if that is the case I have some great news to share.

Before we get into the good news we would just like to recognise the awesome work that went into the Mission Australia Youth Survey for 2017.

One finding that hit a chord with many of us was – almost 60% of young people aged 15-19 year old who participated in the survey are feeling only somewhat, slightly or not at all confident about achieving their work or study goals. It is important to explore how we can build confidence and capability giving young people the tools to be able to achieve their goals in regards to work or study.

Call out for Real World Problems

Getting back to solving the problems you face in 2018, watching the video above you’ll get a sense of what it is all about. People from all over Australia, as well as countries including Uganda, the USA and Greece preregistered their interest to be notified when the new Real World Problems online platform launches and we are now at the next stage.

You can get help solving your problems and enable educators to create fantastic, authentic and engaging opportunities for learning.

You can pose your #realworldproblem on a simple, online platform that connects teachers and students from primary and high schools, Vocational Education and Training/TVET or Higher Education institutions to business, community and industry real world problems. Subscribers will also have access to a #futurejobs channel tracking announcements, developments, events, research and opportunities.

Right now the search is on for real world problems for students to tackle drawn from across Australia and the world enabling learning by doing and providing you value by posing the problems you want answers to.

The next video explains more about how it works and what you need to do to pose your problems.

How to pose your Real World Problems

One of the things that has come up on the Real Day Out or thinking about this new platform is the question, well what sort of problems could I pose?

If you’d like to see an example, please watch the video that Wendy made related to a workforce project completed last last year:
