Not Regurgitation, Creative Thinking!

Derek Cabrera PhD. Cornell

We are Flooded with information and instructions.

His Ivy League students can get A’s but cannot think!  

Critical and Creative Thinking are in short supply.

DSRP Method: Distinctions, Systems, Relationships, Perspectives

Four Skills needed to think!

Discernment not Judgement: ideas, objects and things. 

(I replaced Distinction with Discernment.  Distinction smacks of Judgement)

Systems: the whole and the parts. How they fit together.  

Relationships: between and among ideas. Interconnectedness 

Perspectives: Multiple Perspectives 

“The Goethe Method”, Metacognition, Retraining our Schema!


Great TED Talk
