What is Creative-Thinking?

A way of looking at problems or situations from a fresh perspective that suggests unorthodox solutions (which may look unsettling at first). Creative thinking can be stimulated both by an unstructured process such as brainstorming, and by a structured process such as lateral thinking.

Where Does Creative-Thinking Happen?

Creative thinking should be a part of your everyday being. Being able to think "creatively" gives you a unique advantage. Problem solving, creating new things, and performing day-to-day "magic" requires that you think creatively.

In A Classroom

In a classroom, your teach may challenge you to think creatively to solve a problem. Solving a problem through creative-thinking brings forward interesting perspectives and ways to approach a challenge!

When You Are Playing Sports
