Think-Pair-Share

This method means using a thinking buddy to debug a problem together, then share back what you found with the team.

  • Think: each person thinks about the problem and writes down their thoughts.
  • Pair: consolidate individual thoughts together.
  • Share: share back with the rest of the team.

Bloom’s taxonomy: learning objectives
  • Knowledge-based objectives. Instead of just memorizing facts, the goal of this area is to be capable to remember, understand, apply, analyze, create, and evaluate our knowledge.
  • Emotion-based objectives. This domain measures how much you care about what you are studying: passive attention (the lowest level), active participation, valuation, organization, and characterization (the highest level, where you care enough to generate your own take on the knowledge).
  • Action-based objectives. This domain measures your ability to actually manipulate relevant tools.

By repeating the question “why?” five times in a row, you explore the cause-and-effect relationships underlying a particular problem; the primary goal of the technique is to determine the root cause of a problem.

It is a set of three lists used to classify educational learning objectives into levels of complexity and specificity. They concentrate specifically on learning objectives in the cognitive domain (knowledge-based), affective (emotion-based) and psychomotor domains (action-based).

These three models were named after Benjamin Bloom, the author of Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: The Classification of Educational Goals.

What Is the Comfort Zone in Psychology?

“The comfort zone is a behavioral state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviors to deliver a steady level of performance, usually without a sense of risk.” - Judith Bardwick in her 1991 work Danger in the Comfort Zone

  • Within the comfort zone, there isn’t much incentive for people to reach new heights of performance.
  • It’s here that people go about routines devoid of risk, causing their progress to plateau.
Difficulty in stepping out of our comfort zones

Stepping out of our comfort zone to grab hold of opportunities can be difficult.

Sometimes we are not aware of reasons to do so. However, most of the time, our frame of mind is holding us back. Understanding the shifts in thinking can help us step outside of our comfort zone and move into a personal growth zone.
