Thinking Together Project

Classroom children, Thinking Together project, Faculty of Education University of Cambridge

A dialogue-based approach to the development of children's thinking and learning.

Spoken Language

Spoken language enables us to do much more than share information - it enables us to think together. But as teachers, do we always use it to best advantage? And do we give enough attention to enabling children to use language as a tool for learning and problem-solving?

On this website we explain how years of practical, classroom-based research in several countries and with learners of all ages has provided useful answers to these questions.

We also provide some downloadable material for researchers and teachers, with links to useful books, research projects and other websites.
