Teaching for Thinking
describes us. Our mission is to create educational materials
that develop critical, creative and independent thinkers.
Established in 2001, Teaching for Thinking
designs digital learning materials and videos that challenge the imagination and stimulate
higher order thinking skills.
Our use of rich narrative structure and period
illustrations create a life and times documentary-style learning
tool. Combined with well-constructed curriculum materials and intuitive
technology, we are able to offer a unique series of specialty products,
each designed to encourage:
- independent thinking
- informed decision making
- an appreciation of complex issues
- depth of understanding
- data interpretation skills
- understanding of others' points of view
- growth in knowledge and skills
We work with content and education specialists
to ensure pedagogically-impressive programs. Our teacher's guides
provide tested strategies for incorporating our content into classrooms
and libraries. We use the latest multimedia technology to create
and deliver products while ensuring they are accessible on a broad
range of computer systems.
We are very pleased to have our work recognized
as thoughtful and inspiring, as it was by
the Childrens Software Revue. This is exactly what we strive
for at Teaching for Thinking.
