Thinking Classroom Searching For Resources

Most Thinking Classroom resources are generic: widely applicable to different subjects and for different age groups. Use your skills and experience to transform and apply them. Make the ideas your own. Use the search box, category tree and tag cloud to find what you want quickly.

There are 3 ways to search for resources: Category Search, Tag Search and Text Search. These searches are progressively more detailed.

Category Search

cat searchA resource appears in several categories. These categories indicate its type, most significant theme, subject and age group. Click "+" to reveal categories and then click a category to discover the resources placed there. You'll also see summaries listed in the main window here on the right where you can read more about each resource before you download it.

The Categories

Resource Type: The format of the resource such as Thinking Tool, Article, Video, Story or Think Sheet.

Theory & Practice: The educational topic to which the resource most relates. For example Teaching & Learning, Professional Development, Thinking Skills, Leadership or Creativity.

Subject: The curriculum area in which the resource might be most applicable. Some resources lend themselves to a specific subject yet many can easily be adapted for any subject. The most flexible ones have an 'Any Subject' category. Do explore subjects other than your own.

Age Group: The school age range to which the resource may be most suited. Some resources target a specific age (or ability) but most can be adapted for all ages. Please explore the other age groups. For example, if you teach juniors look at infant and secondary too. Here are the category age ranges:

Early Years: 2-4 yrs
Infant: 4-7 yrs
Junior: 7-11 yrs
Secondary: 11-16 yrs
Tertiary: 16+ yrs

Tag Search

tag searchSelect a tag in the cloud to search for all the resources which share that tag. Categories list the main themes of a resource. Tags express the detail within. For example, an article aimed at educators on the theme of leadership will have those 3 categories. But to help you decide whether you want to read it, it may also have tags such as Mindset, Trust, Change and Relationships. The tags communicate key ideas.

Text Search

text searchCategories and tags list general and specific themes. Text search scans the actual text of the resources for specific words and phrases. It does not search the categories or tags.

Resource Layout

All resources are laid out in the same way:


After a title and brief summary, and depending on your membership level, you have the opportunity to find out more or download and rate the resource.
