    Teaching Learning in the Conceptual Age 2007 version Teaching Learning in the Conceptual Age 2007 version Presentation Transcript

    • Teaching and Learning in the Conceptual Age “ We are moving from an economy and a society built on the logical , linear , computerlike capabilities of the Information Age to an economy and a society built on the inventive , emphatic , big-picture capabilities of what’s rising in its place, the Conceptual Age.” (Pink, 2006)
    • Did You Know?... Video http://shifthappens.wikispaces.com/
    • Did You Know Discussion
      • What is a flattening world?
        • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_is_Flat
      • What skills do our children need to succeed?
      • Are they the same as they’ve always been?
      • Do we need to change how we reach these students?
      • Will left brain (logical and linear) thinking be enough?
    • Left Brain + Right Brain = A Whole New Mind
    • L-Directed Thinking
    • “ The last few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind – computer programmers who could crank code, lawyers who could craft contracts, MBAs who could crunch numbers.” (Pink, 2006)
    • This is shifting!
    • R-Directed Thinking
    • “ The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind – creators and empathizers , pattern recognizers , and meaning makers . These people – artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big picture thinkers – will now reap society’s richest rewards and share its greatest joys.” (Pink, 2006)
    • Why is this shift happening?
    • Abundance “ In an age of abundance, appealing only to rational, logical, and functional needs is woefully insufficient.” (Pink, 2006)
    • Asia “ As the cost of communicating with the other side of the globe falls essentially to zero, and as developing nations continue to mint millions of extremely capable knowledge workers, the working lives of North Americans, Europeans, and Japanese people will change dramatically.” (Pink, 2006)
    • Automation “ Any job that depends on routines – that can be reduced to a set of rules, or broken down into a set of repeatable steps – is at risk.” (Pink, 2006)
    • We need to be teaching how to think with the WHOLE MIND!
    • “ In the Conceptual Age, we will need to complement our L-Directed reasoning by mastering six essential R-Directed aptitudes.” (Pink, 2006)
    • “ The Six Senses”
      • Design (not just function)
      • Story (not just argument)
      • Symphony (not just focus)
      • Empathy (not just logic)
      • Play (not just seriousness)
      • Meaning (not just accumulation)

    • TECHNOLOGY can help you bring these into TEACHING and LEARNING !
    • “ The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.” - Bill Beattie
