Welcome to Tänkarnätverket
- Thinking Schools Network

for Curious Minds about Thinking, Learning, and Visualization.

The whole thing started from a desire to make material from The 13th International Conference on Thinking, ICOT, in Norrköping June 2007, available to participants and others interested. From all over the world, there have been visitors to access the video recordings of speakers as Howard Gardner, Hans Rosling, Jean-Pierre Changeux, Peter Gärdenfors, Martha Nussbaum, Bodil Jönsson. Bill Martin, David Perkins, Marlys Witte, James Nottingham, Art Costa, etc.

Later we have added material from other events, initially in particular those occurring as direct follow ups after our ICOT or activities related to its main speakers. Today there is an ICOT section with links to material from later ICOTs. For two of our ICOT speakers, James Nottingham and Bill Martin, the conference introduced them to the Swedish audience and enabled them to establish school development activities in Sweden based on Visible Learning and OUR Educational Network, respectively.

2011 we started our TEDxNorrköping activity, and the aims and terms are very similar to those of the ICOTs. No fee to speakers or organizers, and the motto for TED/TEDx Spreading Ideas worth Spreading is appropriate for ICOT as well. Early 2014 a section TEDxNorrköping has been added to this web site, and a related Facebook group  Tänkarnätverket-Thinking Schools Network has been set up  It will be used for advertising upcoming events and  new items at Tänkarnätverket, etc.

The material here is available thanks to support from Linköping University Electronic Press and Teknomedia.
