Welcome

Welcome to the A Whole New Mind blog, which will be our learning and sharing tool as we read together. Our vision for this book study is:
  • What we learn together, we learn better.
  • This powerful book needed to be shared.
  • It is essential that we come together to learn what is essential for 21st century learners so that we better meet the needs of the global community.
  • Each of you is here because you are dynamic, have something to offer, and are the vision keepers.
  • We are all learning-leaders: business leaders, parent leaders, educator leaders, and student leaders.

The activities on this blog will enhance this experience; in fact, many are included as references in the book itself. If you have suggestions for sites to add, please feel free to share them as a comment on the blog.

  8. I look forward to reading my first chapter or two tonight and exploring this whole area with everyone. I thought you might be interested in reading this timely column appearing in today's NY Times by Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Thomas L. Friedman, who cites a recent study underlining the significant American educational achievement gap compared to other rising countries- both in "traditional" measurements, as well as the more "right-brained" problem-solving, creative thinking aspects. The column is at: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/22/opinion/22friedman.html?th&emc=th
