"They’re able to come up with the ideas and the solutions. And it was just me facilitating and me trying to extend their ideas."
Grade 6, 7 and 8 Teacher
"Given the complex problems facing the world, teaching students to seek entrenched positions and enter into conflict is something that we need to move beyond. Integrative Thinking is about finding creative solutions when opposing points of view arise."
"We need more people to have skills to be able to really probe each others' thinking and be more accepting and open to different ways of thinking. It’s really good for our world to have people who can look at conflict and look at problems and see ways of understand each other."
Grade 9 - 12 Teacher
