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.
