Brainstorming Presentation

Transcript: Brainstorming What is brainstorming? A Brief History - Alex Osborn Importance of Brainstorming Brainstorming helps promote thinking skills. Brainstorming promotes success for students with special needs as there is no one right answer. Excellent teaching strategy Is a creative technique of generating ideas (sometimes spontaneously) Benefits and Strategies: Can be done as individual work, group work, or class work. Eliminate fear of failures. When brainstorming with more than one person, your ideas can bounce of one another, ultimately triggering a new idea. ‘Claud Seeding’ - “where someone else’s idea can be the seed for a downpour of your own ideas.” Give all students a chance to express their ideas. Tap into individuality, creativity, and prior knowledge. Osborn's Brainstorming Rules No Criticism Any Idea Accepted Work for Quantity Hitchhiking Welcome (Build on each other's ideas) Two Models of Brainstorming Brainstorming Methods Freewriting Freewritting is putting pen to paper and writing down whatever comes into your mind. Quality is not important at this stage. Don't worry about style spelling, grammar, or punctuation. When you find good ideas in your freewriting put them down on a separate "ideas" sheet. Listing Jot down lists of words or phrases under a particular topic. Perspectives Discribe everything about your subject in great detail. History? Importance? Draw a map of it. Distinguish it from similar topics. Similes Complete the following sentence: __________ is/was/are/were like: __________. Clustering/Mapping/Webbing: Can be done randomly and organized after. Or a more organized progression from one idea to the next. If All Else Fails... Look up your subject in the Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia, or Google it! Digital Brainstorming (Mind Mapping) Brainstorming has evolved beyond pen and paper. Digital brainstorming allows students to use the internet and computer programs to brainstorm, or mind map.
