Innovation and creativity are increasingly critical to the many nations striving to boost their global industrial competitiveness. Many studies have focused on improving innovation ability, and various methods have been proposed. However, several such studies have emphasized rules of thumb, diversity, and vague methods such as generating as many ideas as possible and testing many of them. Although these methods are effective to a certain extent, it is unclear whether many students can generate novel ideas. Future innovation research is expected to not only conduct pilot studies that produce new results for the world but also examine ways of cultivating basic creativity skills in school education—skills that are broadly applicable and not dependent on specific subjects or situations so that many people can acquire a foundation for innovation. Here, we focus on the ability to create ideas that are new to oneself and propose problem-posing using modification to cultivate this ability. The method focuses on understanding the structure of a problem; the findings may contribute to basic skill development applicable to various subject areas. In this presentation, we will discuss a problem-posing method using modification and how it relates to computational thinking.
