I began my teaching career using the first version of the Thinkers Keys and found them incredibly useful for getting the students thinking in innovative ways. I found out about the next edition of the Thinkers Keys at a course and immediately ran a staff development afternoon at my school to inform them of the changes. We ordered a set for every teacher in the school. These Thinkers Keys are excellent for applying to problem solving situations and we even used them as a staff to solve problems within the school! – Jackie Wilkinson, Teacher, DET NSW Used Thinkers Keys Cards by @aussietony with Year 4 as they invent their own sport. Powerful stuff! Adrian Torrese, Teacher and DP, CEO Perth WA The Thinkers Keys allow you as a teacher to tweak them and make them useful for your classroom.  Just stay true to what they ask the students to do so that they keep their power.  I could go on forever about how powerful the Keys in combination with technology are as learning tools.  They don’t just help the students learn the content in the classroom.  They help them prepare for life in our competitive society.  They prepare them to be our future leaders and thinkers of the digital age.    Brooke Hagler, Teacher, Coal Mountain. Georgia Got intro'd to Orig. ThinkersKeys as a student. I have been #obsessed ever since and now teach it to K-Gr4. Sandra Pozzobon, Educator, Toronto
