In Dan Pink’s book , A Whole New Mind he states : “People who hope to thrive in the Conceptual Age must understand the connections between diverse, and seemingly separate disciplines. They must know how to link apparently unconnected elements to create something new. And they must become adept at analogy-at seeing one thing in terms of another.” p134-
I have been thinking about this and ask myself how do we as teachers prepare ourselves and our students to thrive in the Conceptual Age? It is a big question but one that is interesting to ponder and discuss.
