Brain research and studies on learning have shown the brain stores information in long-term memory by making patterns. As we work to solve problems, we can think either divergently or convergently. When we think in a convergent manner, the brain uses existing patterns to arrive at a solution. Conversely, when we think divergently, the brain creates new patterns.

One way of thinking is not necessarily better than the other. In fact, students need to be able to think convergently and divergently to become efficacious problem-solvers. In her upcoming webinar, Dr. Nancy Sulla discusses how educators are able to leverage technology in a transformational way to promote both convergent and divergent thinking by students.

Please join Dr. Sulla on Tuesday, March 6 at 1:00 pm EST for “Transformational Technology: Using Tech to Promote Convergent and Divergent Thinking.” The last portion of the webinar will be reserved for Q&A. We look forward to your participation in the conversation.
