The ‘work’ of Talking Hands Talking Feet is about encouraging creative education pathways. It’s about the moments when the spark of learning happens! One of our moms calls it ‘stealth learning’. We love that. One of our teacher collaborators describes it as – ‘back door learning’.
It’s true. Learning happens through the ‘back door’, or the subconscious mind, when you are fully captivated in something intensely creative, challenging, relevant and new. It happens when you’re ‘green’, ‘in the green’, as a first timer, a beginner. The challenge is – can we be first time, keen green beginners every time?
Here’s another quote which helps to paint a picture: “It’s easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than it is to think your way into a new way of acting.” (Millard Fuller)
It’s not ‘work’ at all. It’s more like, well…play!
