    • Just think!Transdisciplinary consilienceconstructs learning across disciplines
      1
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
    • Constructivist learning & consilience
      Constructivism: Learners “build” worlds
      Constructivism: Teachers guide students
      Consilience: All use curiosity, abstraction, math
      Consilience: All understand each other, the world
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      2
    • Transdisciplinarity
      Creating inclusive worldviews
      Conceiving individuals’ views
      Sharing a perspective en groupe
      Overarching & pluri-generating
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      3
    • Consilience, transdisciplinarity, and…
      … divergent thinking
      sharing culturally-generated views
      using language, culture, math
      exploiting, e.g., “Humanities 2.0”
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      4
    • Three integrated concepts & a result
      Transdisciplinarity
      Consilience
      Divergent thinking
      Result: Creativity!
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      5
    • Creativity: 8 qualities
      Fluency
      Flexibility
      Originality
      Elaboration
      Visualization
      Transformation
      Intuition
      Synthesis
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      6
    • Fluency
      A definition: Quick, smooth flow, flux
      Examples:
      In language, phonemic awareness
      In math, number sense
      A result: Unrestricted higher-order thought
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      7
    • Flexibility
      A definition: Ability to conceive the “other”
      Examples:
      In math, “adaptive strategy choice”
      In language, learning to reason like another
      A result: Cognitive plasticity
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      8
    • Originality
      A definition: Generation of novel ideas
      Examples:
      In engineering, new concepts
      In social science, creative problem-solving
      In language, poetry
      A result: Useful, practical outcomes
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      9
    • Elaboration
      A definition: Addition of detail
      Examples:
      In language, circumlocution
      In STEM, fine-tuning with details
      A result: Openness
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      10
    • Visualization
      A definition: Seeing with the mind’s eye
      Examples:
      In psychology, guided imagery
      In STEM, pattern, symmetry, order
      In language, painting word pictures
      A result: Shared imagination
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      11
    • Transformation
      A definition: Alteration retaining core meaning
      Examples:
      In language, questions or imperatives
      In chemistry, “off-label” applications
      A result: Improved neural plasticity
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      12
    • Intuition
      A definition: Recognizing connections
      Examples:
      In math, seeing things as figures
      In language, sensing the sociolinguistic
      A result: Effective creative thinking
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      13
    • Synthesis
      A definition: Creation of a coherent whole
      Examples:
      In science, chemical & biochemical reactions
      In academe, transdisciplinarity
      A result: “Self-directed” learning
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      14
    • Creativityqualities in Language
      Fluency: flow of sounds into patterns
      Flexibility: utterances fitting contexts
      Originality: the novelty of it all
      Elaboration: customization, explanation
      Visualization: picture-painting in words
      Transformation: synonymy
      Intuition: future, conditional expression
      Synthesis: summing-up, distillation
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
      15
    • Transdisciplinary consilience everywhere
      Filling in the spaces between disciplines
      Examining in complementary ways
      Producing dynamic tension
      Jumping together
      KAWatson, Coastline Distance Learning
