Thinking tools are based on research that demonstrates the value of visual representation in constructing and retaining new information. Thinking tools take advantage of technology to allow students to convey and exchange ideas, actively construct knowledge, solve problems, and create nonlinguistic representations of what they have learned. The thinking tools from Intel® Innovation in Education have been developed in collaboration with leading cognitive scientists and experienced classroom teachers to provide the benefits of graphical representation in teaching and learning activities.
