Presentation Transcript
Why not?

"Curiously enough, visual stimulation is probably not the main access route to nonverbal reasoning. Body movements, the ability to touch, feel, manipulate, and build sensory awareness of relationships in the physical world, are its main foundations."

--Jane Healy, author of:

Endangered Minds:

Why Children Don’t Think and

What We Can Do About It

Why not?

“The computer screen flattens information into narrow, sequential data. This kind of material exercises mostly one half of the brain -- the left hemisphere, where primarily sequential thinking occurs. The "right brain" meanwhile gets short shrift -- yet this is the hemisphere that works on different kinds of information simultaneously.It shapes our multi-facetedimpressions, and serves as theengine of creative analysis.

--Jane Healy

Why not?"Schooling is not about information. It's getting kids to think about information. It's about understanding and knowledge and wisdom."

--Larry Cuban,

Professor of Education,

Stanford University


“School traditionalists push for broad liberal arts curricula, which they feel develop students' values and intellect, instead of focusing on today's idea about what tomorrow's jobs will be.”

--Todd Oppenheimer,
