  1. SCAMPER Revisited: From Imagery to Artefacts

    Creative thinking is something that should be infused into every existing subject area at all year levels, but how do we teach it? SCAMPER, according to its creator Bob Eberle, is an engaging introduction to creative thinking. SCAMPER is an acronym, each letter referring to a different verb. These verbs are techniques to use to encourage creative thinking. When thinkers guide their thoughts using a certain technique they achieve a new outcome and/or idea. Creative thinking is integrated into every learning area of the Australian Curriculum including the F-10 and the Senior Secondary curricula. The activities in SCAMPER Revisited are designed to push students to their creative limits, and help to lay the foundations for continued creative thinking throughout their schooling.
