On November 17, 1979, in New York at JFK International Airport, the School of Thinking was born.
At that meeting I outlined my plan to create Thinking Instructors to teach thinking skills in schools, businesses and families around the world. The mission of the Learn-To-Think Project was to create 300,000 Thinking Instructors. Present at the meeting was Cambridge Professor Edward de Bono who gave his support to the mission.
The School of Thinking (since 1995 based on the internet) uses daily MOOCs to export Thinking Lessons from Australia to over 53 countries every day.
Over the past 34 years this idea has spread around the world and has now become the second largest program for the teaching of thinking in the world with over half a billion lessons already distributed by SOT.
The Vatican’s 1,000-year education mission (exporting its own Greco-Roman thinking system known as logic) is still by-far-and-away the largest program ever in history for the teaching of thinking skills.
