Teach your students to think for themselves

PD without buzzwords.

Classroom resources that get students buzzing.


There are two certainties that every teacher will encounter at some point in their career:

  • Buzzwords - trends in education that come and go without having an effect on students’ learning

  • Disengaged students - students who are not excited about the learning on offer.

Before enrolling in your next professional learning experience ask these two essential questions:

  • Will this training still be applicable to my teaching practice years from now?

  • Will the activities/resources delivered with this course get my students excited about their learning?

What are the differences between Critical and Creative Thinking and Design Thinking?

Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) is for teaching kids to think for themselves and be more resilient, Design Thinking (DT) is for helping kids complete tasks and solve problems in structured ways.

CCT is preparing students with skills, strategies and dispositions. DT is utilising those skills, strategies and dispositions to self-manage their tasks and projects.
