Portafolio, one of the most prestigious financial newspapers in Colombia interviewed our founders Gilberto Pinzon and Ana Maria Fernandez. The article explains how the Information Age has come to its end, since the initiation of the Intelligence Age was decreed at the 14th World Conference of Thinking that took place in Kula Lumpur in June 2009.

The article details how in the 21st Century the learning process should focus on thinking and creativity rather than on accumulation of information. It explains how companies like Education First Inc have established a program for Early Childhood Education that promotes healthy habits of mind, thinking processes, creativity, conflict resolution, values and positive behaviors starting as early as one year of age.

TIPS FOR HOME
Internal Motivation

Practice teaching your children internal control and motivation to foster personal satisfaction and self esteem.  It is never too early to learn to be internally motivated.

Be a model for your children.

  1. Tell them how you feel and how your feelings are related to what you are doing.
  2. When you see your children meeting their needs:
  • Ask them: how they feel
  • How do they know they are “happy”, “proud”?
  • What are you doing to make you feel that way?
  • When modeling a positive behavior, give a name to the actions and feelings with enthusiasm:

“What a great satisfaction we feel when we share, I am so happy you can get to feel “proud”, thanks for sharing”.

“finishing our work makes us feel so proud and satisfied, I am glad you can feel that now, well done”
