Guy Claxton’s presentation offers a state-of-the-ar t briefing, the chance for deep reflection, and a host of practical ideas to take back to your school. In this one-day seminar par ticipants will: • Explore the latest research on ‘the science of learnable intelligence’; • Review what works (and what doesn’t) in building students’ learning power ; • Discover some of the smar t things that schools are doing around the world; and • Take away a dozen practical ideas for building powerful learning cultures in schools. The Disciplined Mind: Educational Visions for the future Session 1: Five Minds for the Future In this seminar Gardner will discuss the developmental sequence of the five kinds of minds (disciplined; synthesizing; creating; respectful; and ethical). He will address the ways in which they may conflict with or complement one another and why they are impor tant to the educational development of our students. Session 2:Teaching for Understanding In The Disciplined Mind, Gardner argues that K–12 education should strive for deep understanding of three classical realms: truth, beauty and goodness.Through powerful examples of his approach, Gardner describes an education that preser ves the strengths of traditional humane education while preparing younger generations for the challenges of the future and the steps educators should take to preser ve the vital core of these classical vir tues.
