Starbursting is a form of brainstorming that focuses on generating questions rather than answers.
How to Use the Tool
The best way to see the power of this simple but effective technique is to think of a question, problem, challenge or issue to work on, and follow these steps:
Download your chosen template to use for the activity or create your own starburst on paper.
Brainstorm questions about the idea or topic, starting with each of these words. The questions radiate out from the central star. Don't try to answer any of the questions as you go along. Instead, concentrate on thinking up as many questions as you can.
If needed, create a second layer of questions that 'burst' out from the first questions.
