I have long felt that our educational institutions and churches are way to entrenched in one particular learning style and mode. Being visual learner, I’ve often struggled to engage in learning environments that seem to be designed for only one kind of learner (auditory).
I recently read an interesting article about how touching certain textures can alter a persons perception of events.
…touching puzzle pieces covered with sandpaper made participants in the experiment less likely to describe a social interaction as having gone smoothly than if the participants had held smooth puzzle pieces.
This makes me want to push myself when planning my next teaching opportunity to incorporate more tactile or kinesthetic learning techniques.
