What itc thinkdrive? users say

"ThinkDrive is a fantastic program to access a range of Thinking skills resources and templates. It is easy to use and navigate (linking tools and strategies with skill levels), and I have used it often as a starting point to find a range of graphic organisers and strategies that I have then modified and continue to find success in using. It also makes it quite easy to embed higher order thinking skills and processes in my lessons."

Lauren, Teacher at Kelvin Grove State College
