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.

Also, we will explore the procedures used to identify these students for special services.

The second part of the conference will address: (1) how to make curricular changes that allow time for personalized learning 2) how to infuse XXIst century skills into the curriculum, and (3) how we can offer opportunities, resources, and encouragement for young people to apply their talents to the learning experience.Three interrelated types of excellence will be described and presented through practical examples for teachers with ways on how they can organize groups of excellence and learning experiences that focus on the creative and productive talent.
