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.

Schedule of the presenters that we follow up in TänkBar:




Karin is the director of the Development Centre at Independent Schools Victoria (Australia), coordinating professional learning opportunities for educators at all levels in over 200 schools, integrating and introducing new and innovative learning opportunities.

Karin is also committed to the work of The Feuerstein Institute and is a qualified trainer in this work and has seen first-hand the many ways that people of all ages and abilities benefit from this research and practice and its strong connections to neuroscience.

She is also a faculty member at the Project Zero Summer Institutes at Harvard, works on Visible Thinking projects including PZ Connect, an online learning project and initiated the "Leading Learning that Matters" a project working with experienced school leaders in collaboration with Project Zero at Harvard Graduate School of Education and Independent Schools Victoria, which have been introduced in Australia and highlight the application of innovative techniques to foster the desire to learn and think critically among students.

She first met Professor David Perkins and Professor Feuerstein at the very first ICOT she attended in Singapore many years ago and her introduction to this multidisciplinary conference with outstanding leaders from many diverse disciplines and countries led her to put forward a proposal for Melbourne, Australia to host ICOT and to organising and co-convening with Jane Stewart the ICOT in Australia in 2005 so that many Australians could experience what she and Jane had discovered in this conference. ICOT has led to so many positive changes and growth in Australia, and continues to do so.

Along with Ron Ritchhart and Mark Church has recently published the book:

"Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding and Independence for All Learners".



Thinking and Learning for Today and Tomorrow.

 Our world is changing so rapidly with healthy lives spanning longer, technology changing seemingly as rapidly as we blink, ongoing developments highlighting the links between neuroscience and we are so much more interconnected both near and far, yet is this bringing us closer together or creating new divisions? Jobs many of our students may go into don't even exist yet and the communities we live in are constantly changing too. Who are our students? Who, what do they identify with? Where do they feel a sense of belonging?



Leading Learning that Matters?

It is not easy to let go of the ways we have been doing things, especially when things are going fine, but is it best to stand still when so much is changing? Think about it. What is worth learning now to maximize opportunities and outcomes for today and tomorrow and how can this be achieved? Through our life experiences we keep learning, but how would it be if doctors were not prepared to unlearn some of what they learned in universities and their clinics when researchers find new ways of identifying and responding to disease and doctors have seen that some traditional ways of treating their patients are not achieving expected results? Does this connect with anything you have seen in your organisation? In your everyday life?
