Changing Perspective with Thinking Guides

I was checking out some of futurelab’s projects and came across the exploratree website which provides an online library of thinking guides.  The site allows users to save work online and to even submit their own thinking guides.

This seems like a great way to get children, and adults, involved in the process of exploring and sharing other ways of thinking.  Guides have been placed in the following categories:

  • Mapping
  • Problem Solving
  • Exploring
  • Analysis
  • Different Perspectives

After filling out these thinking guides they can be printed out, emailed, or even shared with others.  The sharing feature allows groups to work on the same project by either making changes or leaving comments.
