“What a fantastic educational experience you provided for our grade 1-9 students and staff this month. Visual Thinking Skills is a powerful tool for all kinds of learning, and I feel sure that many young people went home with dreams of authoring and illustrating their own stories.”

“In January 2011, in a moment that captured the hearts of people all over the world, thousands of Egypt’s students, library workers, and demonstrators surrounded the great Library of Alexandria and joined hands, forming a human chain to protect the building. They chanted “We love you, Egypt!” as they stood together for the freedom the library represented.”

Yesterday I had a great time presenting three workshops to K-8 teachers in Anson,Maine.
The teachers practiced Visual Thinking inspired strategies and an I Spy/Talk About It activity. Annie and I look forward to working with all K-8 students as they continue their school wide exploration of Talking Walls.
