|Tutorials||About | Inventive Thinking | Creative Thinking | Productive Thinking | Summary|
This tutorial provides children with opportunities to develop and practice higher-order thinking skills. Through creative thinking, productive thinking and inventive thinking, ideas become reality as children create inventive solutions, illustrate their ideas, and make models of their inventions. It also helps to break the ice and establish an atmosphere of trust between the facilitator and the learner. This trust is important in creating a climate in which learners feel comfortable expressing opinions and considering new ideas.
