Why use the six Thinking Hats?
"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different ways."Edward de Bona
In 1985 Dr. Edward de Bono developed the "Six Thinking Hats" tool, an important and powerful technique. Six Thinking Hats is a simple, effective parallel thinking process, that helps people be more productive, focused and mindfully involved.
Each hat is a different colour which signals the thinking process. In a group setting each pupils thinks using the same hat, at the same time, on the same challenge.
