A short video on problem solving

January 4, 2009

This 8:55 minute video presents a number of ideas on problem solving:

    – mind mapping and some variations
    – problem solving tools
    – the combination of a problem map and a tool map
    – the IDEAL problem solving process developed by Bransford / Stein

The punch line ideas start at about 5:20, they need some preparation.

I’m delighted if you leave some comment.
