Visual Thinking, Creativity, and Problem Solving with Dr. Susan Daniels
Visual thinking, imagery, and imagination have long been recognized as key aspects of creative thinking and creative giftedness – in both the arts and sciences. Visual thinking is essential to imagination, design, problem solving, and invention. In this session, we explore strategies, activities, and projects that serve to integrate visual thinking, imagination, and creativity across the curriculum for students in grades K-8.
Dr. Susan Daniels is a professor, an author, a consultant, and an educational director of a psycho-educational center that specializes in the needs of gifted, creative, and twice-exceptional children.
