Get the Picture: Brainstorming with Moodstream

Everyone talks a good game when it comes to brainstorming. By that I most people tend to get extremely verbal. They talk a lot or write down an enormous amount of terms. Using words isn't a terrible thing to do while generating new ideas. However, administrators, teachers, students, parents--anyone really--can benefit from using images to spark the creation and perception of new concepts. An easy and engaging way to put pictures to cognitive use is Moodstream from Getty Images. To be sure, it's a different approach to activating neurons but it's mighty interesting. In order to do out of the box thinking it's necessary to do things in a different way--that includes brainstorming.
