TSN members regularly meet at local and national TSN events as well as visit each others schools. These interactions offer opportunities to get the latest insights into research on cognitive education as well as share fellow TSN practitioner ideas on how to implement them.
Members also have access to their Thinking Matters consultant. This relationship enables regular review of where they are as Thinking Schools. TSN members also benefit from access to a wealth of classroom materials, thinking resources and discounts on the services of a range of cognitive education oriented organisations.
You can see a number of the member benefits below:
Annual Consultancy (worth £350) - School leaders receive a half day of their Thinking Matters Consultant's time. This culminates in a call or Skype to review where the organisation is in their Thinking School journey and explores how to continue progressing.
Cognitive Classroom Resources - subject specific materials and lesson plans for primary and secondary teachers on how to weave explicit cognitive development into their curriculum. Introductory guides to the core elements of cognitive education, classroom rewards, displays and outcome based resources offered in a range of media.
Regular Events - regional and national meetings offering the latest insights into cognitive science and the opportunity to meet and share ideas with fellow Thinking School practitioners on how to use these in the classroom.
Thinking Library - offering filtered research papers on neuro-science and cognitive development as well as links to media comments on these topics.
Regular Newsletters/Bulletins - Resources, best practice ideas and news from Thinking Schools across the globe.
