Improve creative thinking

This video looks at the six steps which improve creative thinking:

1. Know that everyone is creative
2. Looking at the left brain and right brain
3. The speed with which you think
4. Originality of thought
5. Flexibility of thought
6. Imagination and association.

Learning music adds considerably to creative and spatial thinking. Learning languages develop flexibility in thinking and the speed with which people can think. We are at a stage in research where we can know what develops the architecture of the brain and what has impact on cognitive development. Tony Buzan worked on the first Mind Mapping software and the iMindMap site offers a free basic version of this software which is very easy to use and implement. I have found mind mapping software to be a very effective tool for teaching and students enjoy making their own mind maps. They don’t have that fear of not knowing what to put down on paper when they have access to a tool like iMindMap.

When you hear Tony Buzan explain the steps clearly in the video  you know it is possible to open up creative thinking and that it ought to be a normal part of teaching and learning. The University of London has an interesting little article about the Impact of creative thinking in the 21st century economy .

We are “encouraged to ‘put the Socratic icing on the Confucian cake’ .” I like that.
