MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to investigate and compare the effects of the SCAMPER technique (directed brainstorming) on the creative problem-solving skills and academic achievements of students. A group of 40 high school students were assigned to either an experimental group or a control group. The hardware components unit of an Information Communication and Technology (ICT) course was taught to all students using case-based learning (CBL), which was supplemented by the SCAMPER technique in the experimental group. Subsequent analyses showed that the SCAMPER technique had a significant effect on the creative problem-solving skills and academic achievement of students. © The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology.
