36th Anniversary of School of Thinking. 1979-2015

Happy 36th Birthday SOT!
On 17 November 1979 in New York City the School of Thinking was founded to teach thinking as a skill.

In a meeting at JFK Airport Michael Hewitt-Gleeson met with Edward de Bono with a plan to teach thinking as a skill to education, business and public sectors. 

Called The Learn-To-Think Project the plan was to create 300,000 thinking instructors to teach thinking across the USA and around the world.

The plan was achieved and extended ... x10.

Over half a billion thinking lessons have been disseminated by SOT in the past 36 years!

The innovative story of how 'teaching the world to think' got started as a global education enterprise.
