What is hexagonal thinking?
Hexagonal thinking is a working method that helps you come up with new ideas, discuss and explain your reasoning.
One hexagon can only connect to six other hexagons. That means you sometimes have to puzzle and make concessions to get it to fit. That is where the interesting conversations arise.
It won’t be perfect. With a mindamp you can draw a line from one idea on one side of the page to another on the other end and then the two are linked. This is not possible with this method. You have to keep fiddling with it to come up with a design that makes sense to you all.
Why did you make this card deck?
Hexagonal thinking is one of my favorite activities to use in workshops with teachers. Many blogs explaining the hexagonal thinking process will tell you to ask your participants to spend 10 minutes cutting out hexagonal pieces of paper. I’ve always felt awkward asking participants to do this tedious task as I don’t think it looks professional and it’s a waste of often precious time. I couldn’t find a place that sold a solution for this online and therefore thought I should try create it myself.
Can you send me the tracking link?
When the package is sent from the warehouse a tracking code is sent to your e-mail address from firstname.lastname@example.org. It might end up in your spam box.
You can also track your package on your shipment page here.
How long will the shipping take?
We ship from Amsterdam, so shipments in the Netherlands will have a next day delivery. Shipping to neighboring countries takes 2-3 days. Shipping to the UK takes 4-7 days and to the US takes 7-12 days.
You can find a complete overview of the delivery duration here.
When do you send the order?
We normally drop the package off within 1-2 business days.
Do you ship worldwide
Yes, all shipments are fulfilled with myParcel which ships worldwide.
Can I pay via invoice?
Sure, send us an email with how many boxes you would like to order and whom you’d like the invoice to be addressed to and we’ll be sure to send you an invoice. We then have to wait for you to pay the invoice before we ship the boxes so this is a slower process.
Can you come run a workshop for us?
Sure, I’d love to. Send me an email or book a meeting with me here and we’ll talk it through.
Can you record a 2 minute video that explains the hexagonal thinking activity and the questions that we want our participants to brainstorm about?
Yes, as above. Send me an email or book a meeting with me here and we’ll talk it through.
Do you also sell whiteboard markers to go with the cards?
No, unfortunately not.
Which whiteboard markers do you recommend we use for the activity?
Please check if the whiteboard markers you have available work well with the cards. Unfortunately, not all whiteboard markers are created equal and they give varying results. Here are the examples of the ones that we have tried.
I have a question that is not in this list.
Send me an email or send your question through instagram and we’ll make sure to answer your question.
