  • James will introduce the presentation and has five minutes to roll through the first few slides. Ask people to log into Skype so we can send them the quiz and web links as we present.
  • Take a few seconds to tell the audience what to expect from the presentation. James will cover the four ages, and implications. Amity, Kim, and Ruth will unpack the six sense and how they relate to teaching k-12. There will be different activities. “Let’s start with Pink’s historical narrative of the four ages.”
  • James breaks down the key concepts of the book, first by starting out with the historical narrative of the four ages. These two he will unpack in about a minute—literally thirty seconds for each age.
  • James continues to unpack the last two concepts in about a minute. Transition into next slide by saying, the conceptual age is where we are today. And there are three factors that effect production in the conceptual age.
  • Brief breakdown of the three large concepts. Click to add the three questions. James will then state the most important agent in business today is creativity.
  • List the six essential sense of creativity AFTER people take the survey. Hand out graphic organizer and ask people to use it to write their own understanding of each sense and as they listen, how they use it in their lives and professions. Then introduce Amity “who will talk about the first two senses that Pink explains in the book, Design and Story.”
  • Design and story are the first two of the six senses. It is a myth that we are all not designers or story-tellers. These are both essential human attributes.I

  • A Whole New Mind
    The Four Ages
    Agricultural Age: 18th Century Transition from Hunter Gatherer to sedentary farmers.
    Allowed basic societies to form and become more complex.
    Industrial Age 19th Century: Massive factories and assembly lines transformed society into an efficient and comfortable existence. Leisure time allows for invention.

  • A Whole New Mind
    The Four Ages
    Information Age: 1980s Information and knowledge now replace industry as the new norm. Economy is now focused around the manipulation of information and not industry.
    Conceptual Age: The new era in which creativity and right brained thinking will rule the world.

  • ASIAABUNDANCEAUTOMATION
    Ask yourself….
    Can a computer do it better?
    Is what I am offering in demand in an age of abundance?
    Can someone overseas do it cheaper?
    • Abundance: Material abundance has freed millions of people from the struggle for mere survival, and is instead deepening our yearnings for less rational, non-material sensibilities—beauty, spirituality and emotion. For businesses, it’s no longer enough to create a product that’s reasonably priced and adequately functional. It must also be aesthetically beautiful, unique, and meaningful.
    Asia: Globalization is taking on new meaning, as more and more companies ship white-collar work overseas. Engineering, computer programming and even accounting are being done by twenty-five year-old Indians—just as well, if not better; just as fast, if not faster—and for the wages of a Starbucks employee.
    Automation: Powerful technologies are eliminating certain kinds of work altogether and proving that they can replace human left brains. Software is a “forklift for the mind.” While it may not eliminate every left-brain job, it will destroy many and reshape the rest. If a $500-a-month chartered accountant in India doesn’t swipe your comfortable accounting job, Turbo-Tax will!
  • CREATIVITY MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.
    Please take a moment to determine if you are more Right Brain directed, Left Brain directed, or a combination of both.
    • DESIGN : design is a skill that is vital to produce experiences, products or services that appeal to the consumers' senses.
    • STORY : increasingly, stories are being used by companies and individuals for purposes of selling, inspiring, communicating and persuading.
    • SYMPHONY : the ability to see the big picture and put the disparate pieces together.
    • EMPATHY : the ability to understand other people and their feelings.
    • PLAY : the skill of understanding games, humor and laughter. It helps balancing our lives.
    • MEANING : the search for meaning of purpose of life through spirituality, charity or other means.
  • Design
    “[Design], stripped to its essence, can be defined as the human nature to shape and make our environment in ways without precedent in nature, to serve our needs and give meaning to our lives.”
    -John Heskett as quoted on page 69.
  • Design
    Design equals differentiation.
    Design is interdisciplinary.
    Design-based curriculum is the modern liberal arts curriculum.
    Design is the principal difference between love and hate.
    Design is the activity of creating solutions.
    Design is utility coupled with significance.
    Myth: only a few are capable of good design
  • Why is Design important?
    Experience is the important part of living, and the exchange of ideas and human contact is all life is. Space and objects can encourage increased experiences or distract from our experiences (92).
  • Story
    We are each the authors of our own lives.
    -the author on page 115.
  • Story
    Story versus fact: WilliamEugeneSmith
    Teachers must tell stories: Narrative imagining is the fundamental instrument of thought
    Students must tell stories: It is the ability to place facts in context
    Intercept of High Concept and High Touch: We are each the authors of our own lives
    A Hero’s Journey: Departure, initiation, return
    Role and meaning are given through story
    The best of the six senses
  • Why is Story important?
    The story is one of the basic tools invented by the human mind for the purpose of understanding. There have been great societies who did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories. (105).
  • Symphony
    Symphony is the ability to put together the pieces or synthesize.
    It’s seeing relationships.
  • Symphonic Skills
    Boundary Crosser-Multiple talents in multiple spheres.
    Inventor- Ability to forge various inspired and inventive relationships.
    Metaphor Maker- Understanding one thing in terms or something else.
  • Empathy – It’s what makes us human.
    Empathy is the ability to imagine ourselves in someone else’s position or circumstance and to feel what they are feeling.
    Emotional Intelligence
    Reading faces
    Empathy, Gender and Brain Research
    “ The Conceptual Age requires androgynous minds.”
    Daniel Pink
  • Play
    Play is becoming an important part of work, business, and personal well-being; its importance manifests itself in games, humor, and joyfulness.
    ~author, pg. 188

  • Implications for Educators
    How will you incorporate the six senses into your teaching?
