Are you looking for ways to channel the creativity and focus the thoughts of your gifted students as you teach them creative problem solving? Brainstorming can often be an ideal way to do that, especially if it is done using SCAMPER, which goes beyond making "just another list." Join Melissa Edwards as she explores a way to tap into the creative ideas possible by using SCAMPER to guide, direct, and focus brainstorming. In this participatory webinar, you will get a chance to not only learn about the SCAMPER method but also to be involved as we brainstorm our way through this webinar!

Thank you for the information. I do see a difference in the children when the answer is not "right there". I like to see the challenge or attempts they end up taking when they collaborate with others.

I think this webinar might be a great start for first year teachers or substitutes. Having been in the educational field a while, I felt like it addressed PBL in general vs. necessarily for gifted students and felt as though it was lacking some references/other components that would help in the process. Some of these were mentioned in other areas of the tool kit, however, and/or may I havenít fully finished the tool kit, so that might be the reasoning behind it.
Nice work

Some great ways to integrate creative thinking with PBL strategies.
I really embrace the strategies behind PBL. I feel students have to take control of their learning and use a variety of medias to facilitate their learning. I am comfortable with letting go of the reigns and allowing them their own autonomy.

I agree that creative problem solving is one of the most important skills we can teach students, especially our GATE students.
Thank you for giving me some ideas to help with keeping my gifted students engaged!
Thank you for this resource!
