This is the first of three 3D cases that are designed to train the group in (only) to post information in the form of ideas when they work in the group. That means no discussion, explanation or argumentation. Group work at the Creative Platform to play with knowledge, the whole group's knowledge brought into play - uninhibited.

Here, the group work on their task and apply the skills they've just been training in the previous 3D cases.
