Thurs., Dec. 9 - Mon., Dec. 13

Daniel Pink is coming to Trinity University next week !!!
And our class has been invited to attend a special lecture reserved just for educators (and ISA's Global Leadership students)
When: Monday, Dec. 13, 3:30-4:30 (Ms. Allen will be giving you a permission slip - and driving the bus)

Please use the next few class days to get to know Dan Pink's work better and think of some questions you'd like to ask him.
I first became aware of Dan Pink when I read A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future

Thing 1

Read A Whole New Mind: Part One - The Conceptual Age, pp. 7-61
There are three chapters: 1. Right Brain Rising; 2. Abundance, Asia, and Automation; 3. High Concept, High Touch
Stop at the end of each chapter and talk with a partner about the big ideas that stood out to you in that chapter

Thing 2

Read the chapter that connects to your focus from the Flat Classroom Project
Design, Story, Symphony, Empathy, Play or Meaning
Give your classmates a brief summary of the chapter with one or two examples of your concept


Or the animated version of the talk he gave at the RSA in London . . .
(If you're at school and YouTube is blocked, you can see it here on Fora.TV)


Thing 4Watch Two questions that can change your life and do the "What's your sentence?" activity

Two questions that can change your life from Daniel Pink on Vimeo.


Thing 5

Write down at least 3 questions or ideas you'd like to share with Dan Pink during the Q&A time at his lecture
You don't have to ask them, but you do have to be prepared in case he calls on you :)

Tuesday, Dec. 14-Wednesday, Dec. 15

Watch our class videos on the ning (including Mrs. Moorman's class). Everyone get their own computers in order to leave individual comments on every video. Be considerate!
