Move and Discover
What is Move and Discover?
The Move and Discover video explains the importance of self-initiated or active learning. Vision consultant, Deb Johnsen, takes the viewer through the different teaching methods designed by Dr. Lilli Nielson, who spent her life working with children with disabilities.
Dr. Nielson's active learning educational approach is based on the idea that if children are given the opportunity to explore their environment, they will learn from their own activity.
The video stresses the importance of using a resonance board, a wooden board that amplifies the noise children make as they play. When used with objects that have a variety of shapes and textures and produce different sounds, the resonance board can be a powerful tool in a child's development.
The video also explains how to set up and use a Little Room. The Little Room is a small space designed for kids where they can easily reach up and touch a variety of objects. This encourages them to move and discover new things around them.
