The dynamics of change is every more aggressive international scenarios, and even the national, where people are constantly subject to new challenges which will require another way of addressing them, be trained in order to be able to go ahead. Failure to so may result in us not favorable results, stress, tensions, conflicts schools, universities must give way to new learning, another style of teaching, using the brain., best optimize the management and utilization of human talent is very important in this regard, what Daniel Pink tells us about this reality and manifest if the world is always changingWhat should teachers teach? What should schools do to prepare the next generation for the drastic changes that are transforming the way in which live and work worldwide? Is the current curriculum satisfactory? The pace and nature of change requires a shift in the way we think about education. In the present the education is subject to restructure learning systems, more when computing is offering new opportunities, giving way to other learning environments, to make use of all the advantages, reach that the Internet provides, what the dimension of information offers. To meet the challenges of today, said Pink, at the Wharton Universia Knowledge newsletter, what counts is not only what we learn, but also how we learn. In other words: we are developing the left or right hemisphere of the brain? The left side works specifically with the linear, logical and analytical reasoning. The right hemisphere is responsible for broader tasks and non-verbal character, for example, task processing of blow, and not in sequence; the interpretation of facial expressions and the emphasis in the synthesis to the detriment of the analysis. To cope with the challenges of tomorrow’s world, will have to use more of the right side of the brain said. Formerly, considered most important skills for any white-collar profession were associated, as a rule, to the left hemisphere responsible for skills logical, linear, sequential, analytical to be inserted into a worksheet, and that they were looking for the correct answer simply tells us Pink.

Those skills are still needed, but are no longer sufficient. For me, the skills that matter most in today’s economy are associated to the artistic ability, empathy, inventiveness and thinking of comprehensive approach. Pink summarized his theory by calling attention to three drivers of changes in today’s world: Asia, automation and abundance. Asia, Pink means the movement of jobs abroad, to countries like China and India. The first wave was the manufacturing sector, in which employment went out us in direction of cheap labor Asian economies. Now, even the service sector which many people did not believe that he could be subcontracted is beginning to move their activities to India, where engineers, financial analysts and other skilled and creative professionals manage projects previously reserved to better-paid U.S. professionals.
