Kata in the Classroom: A Simple Scientific-Thinking Exercise for Students

Helping students to develop effective problem solving skills and collaborative behaviors is a fundamental component of education at every grade level and an essential part of preparing students for careers in the 21st century. This course introduces a simple exercise that can be used with students to do just that. The Kata in the Classroom exercise, which was developed by Mike Rother, researcher, author, and founder of Kata to Grow, is a fifty-minute activity used all over the world to teach students the Improvement Kata. Once learned, this practical pattern of scientific thinking can be incorporated into activities and lessons within all disciplines. When practiced routinely in various educational contexts, the Improvement Kata can help strengthen students' abilities in problem solving, communication, experimentation, and collaboration, essential skills that are emphasized within various ACE program areas and within components of the Arkansas Computer Science Standards for Grades K–8.

Video segments within this course were recorded at the AETN studios in Conway, Arkansas on March 28, 2017 and on March 29, 2017 in Little Rock at the Arkansas Kata Practitioner Day. The Kata Practitioner Day, which was hosted by Manufacturing Solutions, a department of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission’s Existing Business Resource Division, provided attendees firsthand accounts regarding this method of innovative problem solving from professionals in manufacturing, healthcare, government, and education.
