of all the senses...

This TED talk is about optical illusion and perception and should help readers to understand why a multi-sensory approach to education and learning is essential. Are the eyes and ears enough to help children interpret the truth?


Beau Lotto suggests "Each of us is defined by our ecology." And so the question becomes, "Do we give our children a foundation for discovery and understanding and grasp of truth when we confine them to desks?" We need to take matters into our own hands. And allow our children to take matters into theirs. And there is a reason why hands on learning is such a powerful force. The hands ascertain the reality of the other senses.
