One aspect of travel time that I love is time to think. Taking a break from outside stimuli and letting my curious mind wander and wonder.
When I left off last time in this blog post, I was thinking an hour glass fit my model of Bloom’s and how it actually works in a student brain. After conversation here as well as with friends on Dr. Mary Howard’s facebook page, I decided to think about a broader conceptual piece. For those of you who know which lobes of the brain really control “what”, please ignore that and think about what happens to the bits of information that are processed inside our brains. (And do note – this is labelled as Draft 2.0)
Sometimes the “uploading of ideas” may seem structured and other times the process seems to be more organic with much more give and take between levels.
Draft 2.0: What do you think?
How does your brain shift from one level to another?
Is there some automaticity like an automatic transmission in a car?
Or is there a bit of “gear-grinding” like a standard transmission with a tricky clutch?
What’s your thinking?
