What is the most important preparation for work in the 21st century?  What values and skills will be needed and rewarded?  What truly motivates us to achieve?  How do we foster internal motivation in students to do well at school and for life?

Join us for a thought-provoking presentation and discussion with best-selling author Daniel Pink on an education that moves far beyond left-brain “academic” thinking, to an approach that fully integrates social and emotional learning-one that calls upon students’ inner resources to meet each other and the world.

In Pink’s new book Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, he examines 40 years of research in behavioral science that calls into question how we run our schools, organizations and many aspects of our lives.  Pink will share insights into what research tells us about motivation , potential, and reward systems.  He will highlight the motivational techniques that have long-term benefits for learners and the motivators that help unlock the mind’s potential to think critically and creatively.
