Thank you for your point about how we teach children, Eddie! It is an excellent observation and coincidentally rather poignant.
My mother was an elementary school teacher for nearly 30 years, and we often spoke at length about the different ways in which different types of experiences (e.g. aural, tactile, gestural) supported understanding different concepts, and even different stages of development. Just because we “grow up” doesn’t mean we have to disengage other modes of experience.
Now if only I could figure out how to work a rock concert into some sort of exercise.
Lucia - nothing would please me more than to hear about how any of these ideas are having impact in your work. If you find any of these approaches have an interesting effect on your process, good or bad, please drop me a tweet so we can discuss.
