Our role in education is to identify and fill gaps the school system is not able to cover because of their linear way of teaching.
Explanations and presentations turn learners into knowledge consumers.
Improved explanations and presentations will not turn learners into critical thinkers, knowledge creators and problem-solvers.
When you find yourself in a hole - quit digging.
Because of Thinking Tools earners become critical thinkers, knowledge creators, and problem-solvers when they use their inborn Thinking Tools. The result is that we don't explain and offer PowerPoint presentations to learners because we know that knowledge cannot be transferred (BlueTooth-ed) from one brain to another. This is why we regard explaining as an insult to a brain which is able to think.
We follow the Vygotsky scaffolding approach to empower learners to become critical thinkers, knowledge creators, and problem-solvers.
In short, research showed that mathematics can be compared with an embroidery which has a neat frontend and a backend where loose threads are cleverly be stitched together to provide a good-looking frontend. When doing maths and only focusing on the neat steps and recipes the subject related more to cooking and baking than to maths.
As a team of Thinking Tools researchers, we discovered how to stich tie the backend. Therefor we don’t teach examples of sums. Instead, we turn the process around. This empowers learners to cleverly tie and stich the loose end in meaningful ways. It is obvious that this results in neatly set out steps and correct answers which is the frontend of the sum.

The secret of the Thinking Tools successes is based on the discovery of the existence of the brain's inborn Thinking Tools and how the brain thinks in holistic and integrated ways and not in linear logic ways as widely understood.
