Development of effective learning experiences

  • Distortion quality/ quantity sensory information
  • Distance/ close senses-increase in significance in close senses
  • Imprecise information through close senses/ different ways of processing
  • Role of adult partner in mediating learning experiences

Imprecise information through close senses

  • Different ways of interpreting information

Hands on experiences

Sensory task planner

  • Illustrates role of vision in relation to other senses
  • Can consider how we can ‘transfer responsibility for learning’ to other senses in relation to these functions through range of practical activities.
