This handbook focuses on the thinking processes necessary for learning by providing descriptions and evaluations of 42 major frameworks-including Bloom’s taxonomy, de Bono’s lateral and parallel thinking tools, Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences and Paul’s model of critical thinking. Unique in its comprehensive coverage and interdisciplinary approach, it offers easy-to-grasp summary tables for each major theorist for speedy reference. A valuable tool for students needing to understand different ways of thinking, it will also be an essential resource for teachers, curriculum developers, researchers and policy-makers.

Thinking Bioengineering of Science and Art


English | 2022 | ISBN: 9783031040740 | 796 pages | True PDF EPUB | 100.1 MB
The “THINKING: Bioengineering of Science and Art” is to discuss about philosophical aspects of thinking at the context of Science and Art. External representations provide evidence that the fundamental process of thinking exists in both animal subjects and humans. However, the diversity and complexity of thinking in humans is astonishing because humans have been permitted to integrate scientific accounts into their accounts and create excellent illustrations for the effects of this integration. The book necessarily begins with the origins of human thinking and human thinking into self and others, body, and life. Multiple factors tend to modify the pattern of thinking. They all will come into play by this book that brings thinking into different disciplines: humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, formal sciences, and applied sciences. The thinking demands full processing of information, and therefore, the book considers the economy of thinking as well. The book thoroughly intends to explore thinking beyond the boundaries. Specifically, several chapters are devoted to discipline this exploration either by artistic thinking alone or by art and mathematics-aided engineering of complexities. In this manner, the book models variations on thinking at the individual and systems levels and accumulates a list of solutions, each good for specific scenarios and maximal outcomes.

Strategic Thinking Illustrated Strategy Made Visual Using Systems Thinking


English | 2022 | ISBN: 1032302348 | 360 pages | True PDF | 28.32 MB
This book is about the behaviour of systems. Systems are important, for we interact with them all the time, and many of the actions we take are influenced by a system – for example, the system of performance measures in an organisation influences, often very strongly, how individuals within that organisation behave. Furthermore, sometimes we are involved in the design of systems, as is any manager contributing to the definition of what those performance measures might be. That manager will want to ensure that all the proposed performance measures will drive the ‘right’ behaviours rather than (inadvertently) encouraging dysfunctional ‘game playing’, and so anticipating how the performance measurement system will work in practice is a vital part of a wise design process.

Extensive research conducted by the Hasso Plattner Design Thinking Research Program at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, USA, and the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany, has yielded valuable insights on why and how design thinking works. The participating researchers have identified metrics, developed models, and conducted studies, which are featured in this book, and in the previous volumes of this series.

The Power of Not Thinking How Our Bodies Learn and Why We Should Trust Them [Audiobook]


English | ASIN: B0BCH6PSW9 | 2022 | 8 hours and 28 minutes | MP3 | M4B | 232 MB
Ask someone to point to the part of their body responsible for their intelligence and it is highly likely that they will point at their head. This assumption is understandable, given that, for centuries, from Descartes’ "cogito ergo sum" to the computer age, this is what we have been told to think. And yet we all share common experiences that have revealed the incomparable power of "not thinking." Have you ever struggled to remember your pin number only to hold your fingers out and type it correctly with your hands, played the piano without focusing on remembering the correct notes, or listened to your gut feeling when under the pressure of a big decision?
