Systems Thinking (DSRP) Cognitive Structural Blocks

Originally invented by Dr. Derek Cabrera as a way to teach his graduate and doctoral students systems thinking at Cornell University, ThinkBlocks are a tangible cognitive tool that makes it easy to physically model any idea, no matter how complex. Assign concepts to blocks by writing on them with dry-erase markers, and then associate them with other concepts by using the multi-nesting (multiple blocks inside of blocks), barbell (relational nodes), and looking glass (translucent) properties of the blocks. Great for by Preschoolers and PhDs and in corporations and innovation labs. Perfect for conference rooms as an alternative or adjunct to whiteboards. Their use increases:
  • clarity in individual and group problem solving; especially when things are complex and need to be "re-thought"
  • communication and understanding; gets people instantly on the same page or makes it clear when they are not
  • cognitive clarity in all populations from PreK to PhD and in corporations and innovation labs
The most advanced thinking technology doesn't have a power cord. It's powered by your brain. Think with your hands. Comes in four sizes:
  • The Small Kit is a great starter kit for individual students, cubicles, and employees (26 total blocks (2 large, 8 medium, 16 small)).
  • The Medium Kit is perfect for bigger ideas, boasting 100 blocks (4 large, 32 medium, 64 small).
  • The Large Kit is our best value with 200 blocks (8 large, 64 medium, 128 small) and is great for classrooms, dinner tables, conference rooms, etc.
  • The X-Large Kit is the “full house”; every block is full of blocks (584 blocks total! (8 large, 64 medium, 512 small). This kit is great for classrooms, libraries, conferences, museums, and thinking fanatics to demonstrate counting/math applications, aesthetically beautiful displays, and accommodating large groups.
