Very impressed with content and animation: less impressed with 'muzak' background, found it distracting. Also from around 8 minutes to 8:30 display exposure to quick to be able to 'browse' the content.

 

Just two content oriented comments:

First, the underlying practical philosophy chimes well with Stephen Pepper's doing, enduring and enjoying root metaphors for his (con)textualist world-view. (World Hypotheses: A Study in Evidence).

 

Second, I've never been an advocated of a discipline-based approach to 'schooling', preferring instead a problem-driven approach. But latterly I've shifted further to a puzzle-driven approach. This chimes better with curiosity been the prompter of engagement. It is also more consistent with a faceted, rather than atomistic view of doing, enduring and enjoying. I've deliberately avoided using the word 'learning' since I don't believe there is a learning part of the brain which is different from a 'doing' part. It is a very useful exercise to translate educational texts int pedagogic texts by deleting the word learning and seeing what must be substituted instead.
