Join Stefan Mumaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Idea webs, part of Brainstorming Basics.
- Creativity thrives on taking disparate ideas…and mashing them together into something new.…Visualizing what types…of disparate ideas will work together is difficult,…but disparity is rarely a goal,…and is actually much harder to find than you would think.…To get to a place where you can start to see disparate ideas…and their potential together, try creating an idea web.…Start by taking the central theme or subject…of your problem and writing it in the center of a whiteboard…or a large piece of paper.…Circle the word and draw lines coming out of the circle.…
At the end of each line,…write a word that has something to do with the word…in the center.…This can be a descriptive word…or it can be a supplementary term.…It just has to have a relationship…to the word it is connected to.…Do this a number of times…until you have a few words surrounding the center word.…Circle each of those, and do the same thing to them.…As you're doing this, you're building a giant web of words.…Some are in relationship to one another,…
