Thinking Txoko

Thinking Txoko >>>

The Thinking-Txoko is an innovative alternative space at the  ICOT 2015 . 

The  will be situated in the main hall of the conference and it will gather different speakers and professionals to discuss certain themes of the conference.

By being in an open space there will be more freedom and opportunities to interact, listen, ask and debate for the attendees. 


During the days of ICOT2015 we will open a "TänkBar" (a venue with thinking on the menu) in connection to interesting lectures and sessions.

In a tasty and visual environment between keynote and featured sessions , we want to help the participants to reflect on what they just have heard in presentations or experienced during workshops.

During coffee breaks and lunches, we will therefore "enhance" the usual café and restaurant environment with various visual aids and tangible thinking tools to help participants to think together while eating or taking a coffee."

50 person per session permited.

Cost: FREE

Language: English

See pdf >>> for more information.

Intelligent: How Can We Help Our Students Become Even More-So?

We know that intelligence is modifiable and that we can continue to grow cognitively throughout our lifetime. In this presentation we will explore the nature of intelligent behavior and suggest 5 strategies that educators and parents might use to enhance not only their children's intellectual capacities but their own as well!



Art Costa and Robert Swartz

Traditionally, thinking and the emotions have been considered at odds with each other. In fact many have characterized this relationship as a struggle between the two, with, emotions the usual victor, to our great disadvantage.

Some more recent thinking about our emotions suggest otherwise. In this presentation we will advance some new ideas about this relationship, suggesting the possibility of a more natural and satisfying union of the two that stresses a more intimate relationship between thinking and our emotions as well as ways that we can metamanage our emotions – "metaemotional thinking". We will also describe examples in which these ideas have been put into practice in the classroom in attempts to teach students explicit thinking strategies that have an impact on their emotions.



Attention to Intention: When Thinking about your Thinking is your Goal.

Like an internal compass, metacognition is the center of our "executive functions." It controls and manages our decisions, plans and thought processes. (Auto-regulation). While they may have the capacity to do so, not all humans metacogitate--metacognitive skills don't come naturally. They can, however, be consciously cultivated by a skillful teacher. In this presentation we will explore strategies for helping students become aware of and go develop their metacognitve capacities.
