Kinesthetic Learning: Moving Toward a New Model for Education | Kirin Sinha Blog | Edutopia.org

Kinesthetic Learning: Moving Toward a New Model for Education | Kirin Sinha Blog | Edutopia.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

How do people learn? Research has found that it is our learning process, not our intelligence, that is the most important factor in determining our abilities -- making it vitally important to examine how we teach our students.

 

So we must ask: how are we most effective at learning and retaining information? Is it when we are hearing, seeing, doing, creating, or some combination of the above?

 

Recently, multi-disciplinary learning has become the trend in education, allowing students to make connections between seemingly disparate subjects. Kinesthetic learning takes this model to the next level by connecting the different ways in which we learn, and this process enables a more effective understanding and retention of information.

 

In kinesthetic learning, movement and action replace more passive forms of learning, such as listening to a lecture. Everybody has probably experienced the effectiveness of this style of learning.

 

No matter how many years it has been since you learned, most people can still ride a bike and swim across a pool. I am able to play piano pieces that I once knew, and I remember the moves to dances I performed when I hear the music.

 

Yet I can no longer recite the capitols of all the states or the elements in the periodic table -- all information that I had memorized. No matter how much we memorize, recite, and study, our muscle memory seems to trump our brains alone. We learn best when we combine mind and body.

 

So let's use our bodies to their fullest advantage and bring kinesthetic learning into our classrooms.

Academics to create 1,000-year evolving model of Venice as the Venice Time Machine | GizMag.com

Academics to create 1,000-year evolving model of Venice as the Venice Time Machine | GizMag.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Today, Venice is regarded as one of the prettiest cities in the world. If you've ever wondered what it looked like in the past, however, an ambitious project may soon be able to show you. The Venice Time Machine wants to digitize the city's vast archive and create a 1,000-year evolving model of it.

 

École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is running the project in partnership with the University Ca’Foscari of Venice and support from the Lombard Odier Foundation. According to EPFL, "The diversity, amount and accuracy of the Venetian administrative documents are unique in Western history."

 

It is estimated that Venice has over 80 km (50 miles) of shelving that contains more than 1,000 years of administrative documents. Many of the documents are very delicate and are thought to be hand-written in a variety of languages evolving from medieval times to the 20th century.

 

The Venice Time Machine aims to digitize these documents and create an online repository through which individuals can search and browse. This would mean that historians would no longer need to visit Venice and its State Archive in order to view certain documents, as they must currently do.
