The strategy can be used as a gentle warm-up for the day, or as a provocation or tool for re-sparking an inquiry. Learners can find unique ways of sharing and recording ideas, inviting teachers to see new potential in the ideas of students that can sometimes become hidden in more traditional learning tasks.

The thinking keys include

  • The Reverse Key
  • The What If Key
  • The Problems And Possibilities Key
  • The Alphabet Key
  • Variation
  • A. R Key
  • The Prediction Key
  • The Inventions Key
  • The Commonality Key
  • The Brainstorming Key
  • The Forced Relationship Key
  • The Alternative Key
  • The Brick Wall Key

In order to support differentiation there is a set of green cards. The green cards have simplified English text to support learners who are developing their reading or language skills, the tasks are as challenging.

Based on Tony Ryan’s Thinker Keys, the chat pack is a resource that supports both critical and creative thinking. Learners are encouraged to share ideas collaboratively in any recording style including common language groups.
