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. 

Tänkbar

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

Culture and Intelligence.

I will explain the relationship between intelligence and culture. I have investigated how people from different cultures think. I will explore the nature of intelligence across cultures and the implicit theories of people within cultures. I describe the research of intelligence and the results. I conclude that you can not understand the nature of intelligence and thinking outside the context of culture.
