In this booklet, the term alien word is used to introduce the idea with random input. The “alien” words are not entirely “random” but selected to make it a bit easier for a child to extract words to help them get new ideas. Nevertheless, this task requires some creative thinking.
There is a myth that ideas just “come to a person”. Of course, sometimes ideas just come easy but sometimes it is important to step out of the box and look at a problem from a new perspective. One technique that can be used it to use random input to help a child generate new ideas.
In this booklet, children roll a dice to select a “random word” and they also look for ways to improve upon the original idea. Positive and negative aspects with the ide are explored.
