Integrative Thinking is a pedagogy that enables metacognition, empathy and creative problem solving. It is based on the insight that the tension of opposing models can be a powerful pathway to innovation, rather than an obstacle to it. 

With concrete thinking tools, learners develop frameworks to make their thinking explicit, question their models, engage with complexity, build empathy for multiple stakeholders, see the benefit of diverse perspectives and imagine new possibilities. Integrative Thinkers seek to build new ideas by rethinking and combining divergent choices.
