Brainstorming is now a commonly used technique for generating creative ideas and gearing up the process of innovation in industries and companies. However, few of us realise that the technique can be effectively used in classrooms as well. If implemented properly brainstorming has many advantages over the conventional teaching – learning process in the classroom:
- Brainstorming stimulates and enhances the creativity of students.
- Accelerates interactive, joyful learning.
- Helps in self learning and provokes thinking skills.
- Encourages a ‘constructivist’ approach.
