“You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you’re finished, you’ll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird… So let’s look at the bird and see what it’s doing — that’s what counts” – Richard Feynman
How true. Watch the text books children are given and the homework they are doing – you will see this at play. A new way of learning is needed where the child can deep dive into the topic, play with the underlying elements, see it in action, re-construct it for himself / herself and apply it in creating something real.
Only then we will have our children learn anything at hand for life and have a lot of fun along the way.
