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:

Slow looking and big understandings

Time is the most precious educational resource we have. So to spend it lavishly by asking students to slow down and look closely at just one thing requires strong justification. This session explores the cognitive power of slow looking. Drawing on examples from several Project Zero frameworks, it shows how the practice of slow looking can help learners of any age develop complex understandings of their worlds.
