Brainstorming l.jpg
Brainstorming Interaction

  • Free flowing idea generation technique

  • Write down all ideas as they are presented

  • No judging or pre-selecting

  • Encourage everyone to participate

  • Work list to point of “exhaustion”

  • Evaluate list on subjective and/or objective criteria

Modified BrainstormingTwo Approaches

Channels

Anti-Solution


Channels l.jpg
Channels Interaction

  • List categories pertinent to the topic or issue on a flipchart or writing board

  • As ideas emerge, place them under the most applicable (appropriate) category

  • Approaches

    • “Free form”--Look for any idea, then categorize

    • One category at a time

  • Variation

    • Use “Post It” Notes to allow more flexibility in changing category titles and/or idea location


Anti solution l.jpg
Anti-Solution Interaction

  • Fun approach to idea generation

  • Good at breaking tension

  • Process:

    • Brainstorm ways to make the situation “worse”

    • Once list completed, evaluate each “idea”

    • Consider ways to make it better

  • Example: Real objective-- “Develop better thesis sentences”

    • Anti-solution Objective-- “Develop weaker thesis sentences”


Brainwriting l.jpg
Brainwriting Interaction


Brainwriting the concept l.jpg
Brainwriting: InteractionThe Concept

  • Team approach to generate many ideas in short time

  • Combines many aspects of traditional brainstorming except:

    • No open discussion-ideas are written

    • Reduces tangents, “socializing”, and other distractions

    • Reduces “monopolizing” effect of vocal members

    • Increases input from less assertive members

  • Conflict/controversy management technique


Brainwriting the process l.jpg
Brainwriting: InteractionThe Process

  • Identify a topic or discussion area

  • Each team member writes a single idea about topic on a sheet of paper--one idea per sheet (multiple ideas per person permitted)

  • Place all sheets in middle of table

  • Members take a sheet (not their own) from stack

  • Examine the idea

  • Make comments/suggestions/questions

  • Pass sheets around the table until all have seen

  • Evaluate ideas using some type of ranking scheme


Idea synthesis techniques l.jpg
Idea Synthesis Techniques Interaction

  • SCAMPER

  • Idea Box

More sophisticated approaches

to developing new ideas


Scamper l.jpg
SCAMPER Interaction

  • SCAMPER Is A Checklist Of Idea-Spurring Questions*

    S = Substitute?

    C = Combine?

    A = Adapt?

    M= Modify or Magnify?

    P = Put To Other Uses?

    E = Eliminate Or Minify?

    R = Reverse? = Rearrange

* Some Of The Questions Were First Suggested By Alex Osborn, A Pioneer Teacher Of Creativity. They Were Later Arranged By Bob Eberle Into This Mnemonic


Scamper the process l.jpg
SCAMPER: InteractionThe Process

1. Isolate the challenge or topic you want to think about

2. Ask SCAMPER questions about each step of the challenge or topic and see what new ideas emerge. Asking the questions is like tapping all over the opportunity with a hammer to see where the hollow spots are.

Variation

Idea Box

  • This is a integrated variation of the “Channels” modified brainstorming technique

  • A way to automatically combine the parameters of an opportunity into creative ideas

  • It is important to generate parameters and then list variations for each parameter

  • Example - cards

1.Specify Your Opportunity

2. Select The Parameters Of Your Opportunity

3. List Variations

4. Try Different Combinations

Idea generation and synthesis putting it all together l.jpg
Idea Generation and Synthesis: InteractionPutting it All Together

  • Identify issues of substance

  • Determine opportunities for “creatively structured” collaboration

  • Pick a “brainstorming” approach

  • Apply

  • Evaluate

  • Now, give it a try….


Improving student writing through brainstorming l.jpg
Improving Student Writing Through Brainstorming Interaction

Objective

Generate Possible Solutions Using “Out Of The Box” Thinking Techniques

1. Pick an issue around student writing difficulty(ies) that you would like to develop a strategy to improve in that area

2. Select one brainstorming technique for generating ideas, using the materials from this presentation as a reference

3.Gather (brainstorm) several possible solutions, focusing on the assigned root cause

4. Narrow your list to three “top” solutions and be prepared to discuss the challenges and benefits of the technique(s) you used
