We are a group of educators passionate about making learning and thinking visible. Our blogs convey the innovative teaching and learning that happens inside and outside of our schools.
Our network is open for educators, educational consultants, supervisors and principals who would love to connect, collaborate and communicate with us on topics related to best teaching practices.
My name is Tima Nisbet and I’m from Canada. I have been teaching overseas for the past 15 years. It’s great to see new countries, meet new people and learn new things. I always work on my craft. I believe teachers need to keep things interesting to captivate their class. Four years ago, while teaching in Zambia, I was introduced to Thinking Routines. I found looking at what and how students think, instead of always focusing on the knowledge, got my students interested and engaged in lessons. My students never cease to amaze me.
I am Alona YILDIRIM. I was born in a country of steppes where eagles spread their wings widely, where wind blows strong, where sagebrush grow…my motherland is Kazakhstan. I graduated from the Kazakh State University of International Relations and World Languages.
I started my educational career in an international school in Ankara, the capital of Turkey. I have been teaching in the Early Childhood Field since 2003. I coordinated the Early Childhood Program for 4 years.
I make an effort in enriching my professional life by visiting schools in different countries, by administrating and reflecting on my educational page, by participating in study groups and by joining online professional development courses. I go to work everyday with great deal of ideas and enjoy every single minute with my little friends. I want my little people to be real, confident and independent, I want them to be curious and caring.

I am Claire and I founded Thinking Museum in 2013 to research, design and deliver high quality, innovative learning activities, tours and training for museums, individuals and for business.Two years previously, I developed the first museum programmes to use Visible Thinking in the Netherlands at the Tropenmuseum by successfully adapting elements of Visible Thinking and combining with various museum education practices. Through our Visible Thinking workshops, I have since trained numerous museum docents and educators in how to use the method effectively with art and museum objects. I like to encourage people to spend time ‘learning to look’ at art slowly and carefully, asking questions to stimulate the imagination and open up a discussion within the group. I am passionate about promoting engagement and curiosity in the museum through the use of Visible Thinking.
