La educación en la era de la inteligencia

By: Gilberto Pinzon

Published in: Latin People News Magazine (digital version)

Bienvenidos queridos lectores a esta su columna en la cual propondremos mensualmente aquellos temas relacionados con la educación.

Desde hace varios años ya, venimos transitando este apasionante e importantísimo campo de la educación, no solo como estudiantes en años tempranos de colegio, sino también como universitarios, profesores, fundadores de varios colegios en Latino América y los Estados Unidos, desarrolladores de currículos, capacitadores, panelistas, conferencistas internacionales, pero sobre todo, como constantes entusiastas del aprendizaje permanente y del auto desarrollo profesional.

Algunos de ustedes se estarán preguntando el porqué del nombre de esta columna “La educación en la era de la Inteligencia”. Déjenos contestarles contándoles una corta historia. En abril del 2009, el Doctor David Perkins, profesor de la Universidad de Harvard y uno de los padres del “Proyecto 0” y “Pensamiento Visible”, nos visitó en uno de nuestros prescolares en la ciudad de Weston, FL. Al culminar la visita y gratamente impresionado con su experiencia, El Doctor Perkins nos sugirió participar en la Conferencia Mundial de Pensamiento ICOT 2009 a realizarse en Kuala Lumpur Malasia. En dicha conferencia nos encontramos con las personalidades más importantes en la actualidad en el tema del pensamiento; Howard Gardner, Edward de Bono, y Tony Buzan entre muchos otros.

Major International Conferences

Edu1st is present at Major International Conferences

At Edu1st, we believe education is a dynamic processes. The learners are not only the children, but their parents, ourselves, the whole community.

We are living in exponential times. Education needs to change and understand we cannot continue teaching for the industrial era using ideas from 100 years ago. Research is providing us new tools to understand our brains' potential. 21st Century is demanding new skills from us that were unknown a decade ago. Today, more than ever, Ethics and values are crucial for our world future.

Collaborative work is leading the way. Different disciplines are now integrating their knowledge to create a better future. At Edu1st we understand this and we actively participate world wide in various conferences. We are presenting and sharing our work with the world and we are also learning from leading researchers and practitioners.

More information on the learning from these conferences and how your children are learning at our schools will be provided at the coffee mornings, the weekly news letters and on a daily basis through the experience your child is enjoying at the school.

Feel free to contact us for any comment or inquiry.
