30 Ways to Inspire Divergent Thinking - InformED | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Why is divergent thinking important in education, and how can we inspire our students to become divergent thinkers? This post explores this idea, beginning with a definition of divergent thinking and providing a look at current research on divergent thinking.

Did you know that divergent thinking "stems from logical, unbiased thinking" or that divergent thinking "leads to positive mood swings while convergent thinking leads to negative mood swings." After this discussion (and there is much more in the post) you will find 30 tips on how to teach your students to become divergent thinkers. A few of the tips are below.

* Fast, frequent failures (with the suggestion that students quickly lay out all possible solutions). Identifying mistakes helps to lead to the students to the correct solution.

* Google - Today students like to Google the answer...but what if you create questions that require deeper thinking, where Google will not supply an answer quickly.

Many more ideas are available in the post. Click through to read more.
