tinking and thinking

A friend, Elliot Washor is co-director of the the Big Picture Co. and has a new blog that should be interesting to followers of the Wisdom of the Hands. tinking and thinking is about that connection between doing and the development of intellect. As you may know and as I have worked to inform, fundamental educational theory from the earliest days recognized that academic interests arise from activity, what Elliot so aptly names tinking. To push academics that do not arise from learning activity puts the cart before the horse, and many children are alienated and diminished if not completely squashed flat by the experience.

Anyway, check out Elliot's new blog. Good stuff.
