How ODIN Works

ODIN uses Open AI's GPT AI Engine. We created an instruction set from our Framework and Critical Thinking Toolset. With this, ODIN will lead the conversation and ask critical thinking questions per the framework. The dialog with ODIN is just as you would dialog with another person who is helping you. ODIN will ask a question related to your Headscratcher, you answer, ODIN will ask another question, etc. ODIN's goal is to get you to think. Additionally, the user can fill in Thinksheets for ODIN to critique.

The Value of a Thinking Coach

We’ve been teaching critical thinking since 2004. Some of the comments we receive from prior students include:
• It’s hard to think of the questions to ask, or I’ve run out of questions to ask.
• I miss getting feedback on my work.
• It would be great to always have someone to work with, who will ask me the tough questions and keep me focused on the process.

One of the modules we teach in our multi-day course is “Being a Thinking Coach”.  In this role, you help others think critically.  But a live thinking coach is not always available.

The Headscratcher Thinking Coach Smartbot, a.k.a., ODIN was created to be that Thinking Coach. It can:
• Ask you a lot of questions.
• Critique your work.
• Be there 24/7 to keep you focused and ask you the tough questions.

We combined Headscratcher critical thinking framework and toolset with Open AI’s Large Language Model (aka ChatGPT) and created the Headscratchers critical thinking  smartbot Thinking Coach, ODIN.

ODIN uses the framework structure during its conversation with you to help YOU think.
