This is a visual representation of our current thinking about the teaching/learning process, first introduced at our Moving Parts Exhibit. We call it Thinking in Motion because learning is always evolving – as is our pedagogy/understanding of how to learn. Click here to share your input with us so that we can continue to develop this image and make our learning visible.
OBSERVE – Look closely. Notice patterns.
REFLECT – Think deeply, allow time and space to process ideas. Unpack the layers of learning.
FORECAST – What might happen next? Predict and prepare, but remain open to actual outcomes.
INVITE – Set the stage for creative learning – taking the properties of materials and presentation into account.
PROVOKE – Poke at the subconscious with a statement or question that lingers during playful exploration.
DOCUMENT – Capture as much as possible in the moment, using any medium at your disposal – your mind, camera, pen.
OBSERVE – Begin again.
