These Essential Skills Ontario (the Ontario anglophone stream organization from 1987 to 2015) sample activities were developed to introduce learners and practitioners to the concept of problem solving within technology rich environment (PS – TRE).

PS – TRE assumes that basic digital and technical skills are already known and they are considered a prerequisite for successful resolution of a problem or task.
