D3 Project of the Month: Braincooker!

IMG_20121127_155912_097

One of the most challenging aspects of the design process is the Brainstorming phase, in which we generate multiple ideas or solutions to the problem in front of us. This often requires cognitive agility, snap decision making, and the ability to make connections between seemingly unrelated pieces of information.  D3’s new “Project of the Month” entitled Braincooker, is an interactive and customizable game that helps us flex the cognitive muscles that support brainstorming by reinforcing:

-Divergent Thinking

-Creative Problem Solving

-Associative Logic

We’re looking forward to seeing how C:/dags teachers incorporate this new project into their classrooms!

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
