    Four Minds for the Future: Creative, Constructive, Critical, Connective

    In Five Minds for the Future, Howard Gardner presents five interrelated modes of thinking as components in building a productive future. Inspired by this example, we will explore our own four modes of thinking and develop connections among them.

    -The Creative Mind embraces risk, synthesizes prior knowledge, and develops new concepts.

    -The Constructive Mind transforms creative possibilities into tangible images, objects or actions.

    -The Critical Mind discerns strengths and weaknesses among multiple options and determines priorities.

    -The Connective Mind brings all of these possibilities together and provides outreach to the larger community of educators at all levels.
