Our Company has been bringing educators and students together successfully for the past 20+ years. We have a unique perspective on how students learn and educators teach. It is our goal to provide both educators, parents and students a common visual language for learning that can facilitate the communication of concepts, provide deep and meaningful learning connections, and streamline the process of discovery and growth.  We offer learning opportunities specifically geared to classroom teachers, school administrators, homeschool educators, and  involved parents.  These trainings, which are available for all content areas and grade levels, give regular and homeschool educators the tools and knowledge needed to enhance their teaching in the classroom and at home. Trainings are offered several times throughout the year.

Minds of Mississippi Award-winning Short Film

The Minds of Mississippi short film was created by the Thinking Foundation to document how the Pass Christian School District struggled to completely rebuild their learning community in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It is a testament to the will and determination of these brave administrators, educators, parents, and students, who came together to not only survive but thrive as a District. Watch as Dr. Marjann Ball, our Director, and the Thinking Maps are directly credited with being major contributors to the success of this amazing group of people.

Thinking Maps® - What Are They?

...from the website...

Thinking Maps® are consistent visual patterns linked directly to eight specific thought processes. By visualizing our thinking, we create concrete images of abstract thoughts. These patterns help all students reach higher levels of critical and creative thinking - essential components of 21st century education. In a school-wide implementation, Thinking Maps® provide a consistent Language for Learning.
