Better learning tools for thoughtful classrooms.

Our belief: Children need to understand how to think effectively to thrive at school and beyond.

We create tools and strategies that help your learners build, use and communicate knowledge. For teaching staff, we run professional learning projects using research evidence to enhance educational outcomes.

Developing lifelong Learners

Critical Thinking

Get your learners asking more questions and taking on new perspectives.


Help your students make connections and generate those important new ideas.

What do we actually do to improve outcomes?

1] Planning for thinking

Develop Knowledge 'able' Learners.

Design inclusive learning activities that really stretch your pupils. Our Knowledge Builder Framework acts as a 'Cognitive Sat Nav' helping pupils to become fluent with new information and ideas.

2] The building blocks of learning


The popular brick-building methodology helps learners build models of what they think. The process leads to deeper understanding and better memory.

3] Understanding cognition

Professional Learning for Staff

Our observational tools help teaching staff make expert judgements about their learners. We support schools by devising research projects and facilitating professional learning activities.
