This book provides the frameworks for thinking, learning, and creating in the years to come. I feel as though anyone in the field of education, teaching from little first graders to graduate level courses should read this book to gain insight as to how to prepare students for the newer working environments.
Daniel Pink’s "A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future" not only entertains and provokes in a positive way, but also serves as an effective tool for trainer-teacher-learners. His SUCCESs stories—like the one about how he went from drawing stick figures to producing a reasonably accurate self-portrait in a one-week period under the guidance of a fantastic instructor – make us sit up and ask, “Why can’t I teach and learn like that?”The encouraging answer is that we can. By adapting the lessons he offers, we recognize that old tools can bring new, powerful, and encouraging results which keep us all alert, inspired, and engaged.
Everyone needs to read this book!
Pink's book presents the urgency for our schools to move beyond the left brain alter in both curriculum and testing. Educators and parents should consider community book clubs to spread the awareness that economic viability is being threatened and perhaps more urgently than our collective consciousness has declared.
