Thinking Foundation

 
Thinking IS the Foundation for Learning
The mission of the non-profit Thinking Foundation is to support high quality research on cognitive skills development, creativity, and critical reflection—at pre-school, K-12 and college levels in order to transform learning, literacy, teaching and leadership around the world for those with the greatest need. 

Thinking Foundation focuses on research and support of cognitive and critical thinking development in schools toward the goal of creating Thinking Schools nationally and internationally.  As part of their mission we have a range of collaborations with different organizations and people from universities, professional development consultancy companies, and non-profit educational groups.  These people and their organizations together inform and drive our work and research.
