Thinking Kids

It seems, sometimes, that children seem a bit lost in class when we ask them to think for themselves. The bain of a teachers life is dealing with questions like, ‘I’ve run out of room on this page, what should I do?

Last year I started a semi regular ‘Out of the Box’ competitive activity for getting groups to be creative and think together. Here are some examples of what we did –
– Five Photo Story
– Twitter Challenge
– Other Examples

This is a site I’ve found (thanks, Angela Maiers) that actually builds on this idea and shares the ideas on a website. It’s called ‘Think’. What a great idea – kind of the point of the whole thing.
