We enable educators to get the best out of their pupils by developing tools that enable children to think their way through the curriculum. Our work directly addresses classroom passivity and has significant implications for raising educational outcomes.
Becoming an effective learner requires a child to understand how to organise their thinking [metacognition] and how to work through new ideas systematically [critical thinking].

Deficient classroom thinking plays a central role in these problems
A general apathy seems to prevail with specific cohorts of children. They're not curious and avoid any intellectual challenge.
Learners have difficulty getting started, creating plans and being reflective. You feel that you are constantly 'spoon feeding'.
Comprehension difficulties make accessing subject matter difficult. Problems arise when trying to use and explain new knowledge.
Are you concerned about classroom passivity? Are all your learners engaged? Are your pupils curious? Add precision to your learning walks and lesson observations with this new tool.
We provide workshops and courses that enable teachers to adopt metacognitive practice in the classroom.
