“I believe in I-Think because, by design, it forces students to engage with each other in a respectful, constructive and creative manner. I-Think offers the building blocks that every child should have as they engage in the world, be it their workplace, community or kitchen table. Integrative thinking is not easy, but a workforce of integrative thinkers is exactly what is needed to tackle today’s problems, big and small, in this time of increased intellectual polarization.”
