Buy Experiences, Not Things

Buy Experiences, Not Things | www.homeschoolsource.co.uk | Scoop.it

Live in anticipation, gathering stories and memories. New research builds on the vogue mantra of behavioral economics

Audrey's insight:

Experiences aids continuous learning for everyone.  Starting children from an early age  is key to skill acquisition.  

 

Reading one aspect of a subject is not enough.  By the time young people reach the age of A  levels they should be well equipped with knowledge of how to acquire information - not just from what is written on a powerpoint, blackboard or whiteboard, but from their own research.:  e.g. Youtube, searching the web, chapters in books and so many other ways......

 

Have a look at different websites which point the way.  Two examples:

8 Surprising Ways Music Affects and Benefits our Brains - - The Buffer Blog | www.homeschoolsource.co.uk | Scoop.it
I’m a big fan of music, and use it a lot when working, but I had no idea about how it really affects our brains and bodies.

Audrey's insight:

Happy/sad music affects how we see neutral faces

moderate noise level is great for creativity.

Different genres correspond to personalities, e.g.

Blues fans have high self-esteem, are creative, outgoing, gentle and at easeJazz fans have high self-esteem, are creative, outgoing and at easeClassical music fans have high self-esteem, are creative, introvert and at easeRap fans have high self-esteem and are outgoing
