Creative Thinking Development in Physics: the Typology of Tasks and Their Place in the Curriculum

Student: Kseniya Anisimova

Supervisor: Fedor Dudyrev

Faculty: Institute of Education

Educational Programme: Evidence-based Educational Policy (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2019

The development of universal competencies (skills of the 21st century) is one of the most discussed trends in the field of education today. The need to teach schoolchildren such skills as, for example, creative and critical thinking, seems obvious, but it raises many methodological questions. In particular, it is not clear how exactly to develop these competencies in the framework of technical and natural-science subjects. The subject of this work is the development of creativity in tasks in physics of the 7th class: an attempt will be made to identify and systematize the types of tasks that contribute to the development of creative thinking among students, as well as to assess the role of such tasks in current curricula. For this purpose, the most well-known and massively used task books on basic and profile physics courses will be analyzed. It is assumed that in the profile course of physics, tasks that develop creativity will be presented more widely and more qualitatively; however, in general, the proportion of such tasks in Russian problem books will be low.
