In this paper, we propose an a strategy using writing based on STEAM Instruction for information gifted students' creative problem-solving. It is needed a complex and dynamic interaction of variety elements for creative problem solving. And it should be provided experience encompassing various disciplines thorough convergence education for leading to the these interactions and developing the ability to solve complex problems. Writing has already been verified educational effects in a variety subjects. And writing gives a positive impact on creative problem solving by helping awareness of the problem and encouraging critical thinking. In addition, writing can be used as an effective tool for improving problem solving based on similarities between problem-solving process. Learners will find algorithm thorough the process analyzing and writing experience with high-tech products like vending machines, mobile phones and can learn naturally the principles of various disciplines used in real life. Furthermore, learners will experience interaction, convergence of various thinking and cultivate creative problem- solving skills.

본 논문에서는 정보영재의 창의적 문제해결력 향상을 위한 STEAM 기반 쓰기 활용 전략을 제안한다. 창의적 문제해결(creative problem solving)을 위해서는 다양한 요소의 복합적이며 역동적인 상호작용이 필요하며, 이러한 상호작용을 유도하고 실세계의 복잡한 문제를 해결할 수 있는 능력을 함양하기 위해서는 융합교육을 통해 다양한 학문을 아우르는 학습 경험을 제공해야 한다. 또한, 다양한 교과에서 이미 교육적 효과가 검증된 쓰기는 비판적 사고를 유도하고 문제해결의 시작이라 할 수 있는 문제인식을 도와 창의적 문제해결에 긍정적 영향을 줄 뿐만 아니라, 문제 해결과정과의 유사성을 바탕으로 문제해결력 향상을 위한 효과적인 도구로 쓰일 수 있다. 학습자들은 일상생활에서 흔히 사용하는 자판기, 휴대전화 같은 첨단기술 제품을 사용한 경험을 쓰고 분석하는 과정을 통해 알고리즘을 찾고 실생활에 쓰이는 여러 학문의 원리를 자연스럽게 학습하면서 다양한 사고의 융합과 상호작용을 경험하고 창의적 문제해결력을 함양할 수 있다.
