Pink, D., Friedman, T. (2008). Tom Friedman on education in the ‘flat world.’ The School Administrator. February, 12-18.
This article is actually an interview or conversation between Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, and Thomas Friedman, author of The World is Flat. It is a great discussion about the importance of “mashing” the left brain (rule-based SAT style thinking) and right brain (artistic, empathetic, story-telling, synthesizing) together to nurture curiosity, creativity, and passion. They also discussed the growing importance of parenting and the burden the schools are bearing by trying to solve all of societies problems.
