Using TechDoodle & #ThinkDo resources

TechDoodle & #ThinkDo resources are in jpeg format & can be printed as they are or used in documents or PowerPoints. They're based on our approach to teaching & learning & in particular on metacognition & approaches such as spaced & deliberate practice. The cards compliment other resources we produce as well as courses we run. The best way to find out how to use the cards is to attend one of our courses
