ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

Para poder debatir durante el ICOT18 planteamos un dilema que NO tiene una respuesta única: el pensamiento visual ¿se expresa mediante elementos gráficos y textuales? o ¿es el propio pensamiento el que esta en proceso de construcción mientras garabateamos, dibujamos y escribimos?

¿Es una herramienta más que utiliza nuestra mente para recorrer los diferentes caminos por los que van adquiriendo sentido los conceptos y proposiciones mientras vamos dando forma a las ideas que nos “rondan en la cabeza?

Durante el Taller Interactivo recorreremos los planteamientos de diferentes autores y sus propuestas, enriqueciendo los postulados iniciales con las aportaciones de los ...
