Why Use Thinkers' Keys?

Strategy used to develop critical and creative thinking. The Thinker's Keys are represented by twenty key questions that require the person to think of their own unique answer or response.

But what is critical and creative thinking?

It is a set of skills and attitudes that are deployed selectively to evaluate arguments (reasons and their companion conclusions) according to explicit standards of rationality.

Why using thinkers' keys?

  1. The majority of the Keys place emphasis upon the development of innovative and creative thinking:Creative thinking can be exciting and enjoyable. This active participation can then create a positive attitude towards the learning process.
  2. The stimulation of creativity in learning heightens the emotional link with that learning. This emotional involvement boosts the effectiveness of our memory systems.
  3. Developing our creative potential will strengthen our ability to cope with change.

If there is one thing that we can guarantee into the 21st century, it will be the exponential rate of change that will affect the world. When our thinking is open-ended and accepting of new ideas, we become much more capable of adapting to these changing circumstances.
