FunThink: 12 Tools for Creative Problem Solving
FunThink: 12 Tools for Creative Problem Solving is the first book that uses engaging hands-on activities to guide the educator/student through the problem solving process using 12 proven creativity tools.There are no special skills needed to be successful in the FunThink activities. They are designed to draw out innate creativity as well as spark original thought and creative problem solving. The activities are appropriate for ages 8 through adult.Through research in creativity development and drawing from my 35 years of experience in design and invention, I've concluded there is a great need for material that would help children and adults experience the creative process.
