Dr. Tokuhama-Espinosa proposes that redesigning school curriculum around these five pillars--whether to augment or replace traditional subject categories--could enable students to develop the transdisciplinary problem-solving skills that are often touted as the ultimate goal of education. Heralding a potential paradigm shift in education, Five Pillars of the Mind explores how aligning instruction with the brain's natural design might just be the key to improving students' learning outcomes."@en ;
