Brainstorming: PBS Design Squad

So I am working on this new project called the PTC Creativity Lab and one resource we are going to provide teachers is a creativity tool kit.

One skill set that is at the top of the list is brainstorming. I've done a bit of research on resources out there and one I like is from PBS Design Squad. What I dig is how they provide a video that shows brainstorming in action. Some additional tips: (1) hand out sticky notes for students to independently ideate (2) afterward they can stick their ideas on the board. This promotes class-wide ideation versus a couple of people taking the lead.
