Teaching and Learning in the Conceptual Age 2008

  1. 1. 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)
  2. 2. “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)
  3. 3. “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)
  4. 4. Why is this shift happening?
  5. 5. “In the Conceptual Age, we will need to complement our L-Directed reasoning by mastering six essential R-Directed aptitudes.” (Pink, 2006)
  6. 6. “The Six Senses” 1. Design (not just function) 2. Story (not just argument) 3. Symphony (not just focus) 4. Empathy (not just logic) 5. Play (not just seriousness) 6. Meaning (not just accumulation)
