Natural Learning: It is not just Visual or Verbal

The idea of visual and verbal learning is causing the deterioration of the human mind and it’s capabilities. It undermines what we are capable of by dissecting and isolating our abilities and senses.

Imagine a different type of learning style, one that can encompass all senses that we are aware of.

Lets go back to elementary math and learn how to count.

Instead of looking at pictures of apples, you will actually have apples and the apple tree; start counting. There is vision, sound, touch, smell, taste, and a bond with the natural world that cannot be recreated.

Want to learn about anything else? The world is right in front of you.

Reverse back to the beginning of education and how we learned. It all comes from nature. We observed, analyzed, and utilized the elements in their natural beauty. It was not in a text book but from inspiration from the natural phenomenon that constantly surrounds us. It uses all of our senses and places redundancies on our stimuli ensuring something sticks.

The new method of learning is an old one diffusing knowledge to everyone by learning in a living school. It also goes so far as to combine proper nutrition, exercise, and social interaction.

Well, that is all for now.
