This week, ThinkFun has had the privilege to host a group of primary school teachers from the Bukit View Primary School in Singapore… these teachers are amazing!
Bukit View is a prototype school in Singapore. They are tasked to come up with innovative ways to teach 21st Century Thinking Skills. In response, they have developed an incredible program called MBA (Mass Brain Activities) that uses brain games to help students stretch their thinking and build new skills… that we connected was certainly fate!
Having learned about our games and education initiatives, this group obtained funding to spend a week with us, learning from our experience with past programs, exploring ways to integrate ThinkFun games to further stretch students’ thinking, and getting new inspiration to continue to develop their program!
We have spent the week playing games, visiting local schools, and sharing ideas on how to stretch game play to draw out higher level reflective thinking from students - it has been a whirlwind, and we are very excited about what is to come!
We visited two wonderful local schools to expose teachers to the Strategies Lab classroom model and meet with the inspired teachers behind the program.
We are so excited to have met this group and to be working closely to help guide their program… using our games to inspire thinkers all over the world is a very big goal, and this connection brings us one step closer!
