Creative Thinking

Or for the full title, 'Twelve Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking'.  I like this article because it covers a lot of ground related to ePortfolio thinking.  Not that I think that the title is necessarily totally true. - Well, not here in the UK anyway.  For almost 50 years I and my colleagues have been teaching problem solving and product design.  Even when I moved over to ICT the same principles exist:  that of identification or discovery of a need, of suggesting a variety of solutions, some more crazy than others, until a rational proposal can be put forward and worked upon.

This should be at the heart of ePortfolio thinking:   the ownership of learning through the personal discovery and generation of solutions that others might accept.  It is about personal integrity, communication skills, work ethic, recognition of audience etc.

And, of course, where better to present such personally owned solutions than in an eFolio?
