Today we launched a Kickstarter project to fund production of the ThinkKit – a resource we’ve been working on for the past year.

Based on our Collaborative Creativity in the Classroom professional development course, the ThinkKit is a stand-alone classroom resource for teachers. It’s great for those occasions when you want students to be coming up with creative ideas – from ways to solve a real world challenge to interesting topics to write a story about. Rather that working by themselves, ThinkKit is about working creatively in groups.

Designed for teachers (and adventurous parents) the deck is made up of 32 large format cards, nice and thick to survive in the classroom. Each card explains a particular exercise or tool in language suitable for confident young readers.
