The virtual realities or virtual products implicated in the brains, institutional power, computers and flexible production lines of teams who work together are the products of ‘’creative thinking’’. Everything from car making, libraries to education and training activities is operated with virtualization.

On the other hand, if the teacher encourages seeking different ways of solution, the student will have the tendency to learn the ways of divergent thinking which makes contribution to more creative problem
