Edutopia

 Ed Bronson recommended a website, Edutopia that he thinks might be useful for spreading the wisdom of the hands concept. What follows is a bit of discussion from that site:
"Schools should appreciate forms of intelligence that are not linguistic. Arts should not be dropped from any school's curriculum -- the teaching of fine arts and/or musical intelligences develop strengths not measured on an IQ test. Spatial intelligence, while highly prized by the economy, is not really taught in schools until college level, and those students with strong spatial intelligence can easily become school dropouts because they never encounter their strengths in the classroom."
In the meantime the blue whale is complete except for oars and oarlocks. I will try to find a donated set to attach on Monday.
