SPACE ODDITY BOOK DAVID BOWIE'S SONG MADE INTO A CHILDREN'S BOOK

I found this very thought provoking and wanted to share. Another way to support visual learning.

It raises the question of the importance of doodling as a cognitive process to support learning and processing leading to questions such as:
  • Can doodling help focus a mind that is "constantly in motion?"
  • Can doodling help one focus on auditory material?
  • Can doodling help clarify content?
  • Is doodling only beneficial for the visual learner

  • Take 5 minutes and listen to Sunni Brown's TED Talk

//Sunni Brown: Doodlers, unite! | Video on TED.com//
  • ...our creative thinking. So why do we still feel embarrassed when we're caught doodling in a meeting? Sunni Brown says: Doodlers, unite! She makes the case for unlocking your brain via pad and pen. ( from Google search results)
