    Prompt 1: Learning Experience

    From doing the movements pieces in class, the readings and lectures that we did are much more engrained into my memory. In the same way a certain note-taking style can engage a student, the movements forced me to condense and connect the material learned in a unique way. This different way of thinking allowed me to explain things that may be difficult to verbally, which caused a whole new level of engagement with the material.

    The focus of meditation inherently contradicts the educational structure I have lived in for twelve years. Our dependence on the image manifests in the definition of learning extended to our institutions. We emphasize what we can relate to; as a result, superficial indicators of memory retention are considered our most reliable markers of progress. I attempt to isolate the social interaction of learning from the din of college workhorse culture.

      Hi Tyler,
      Thank you for your thoughtful blog responses. So that you remain anonymous on the public blog, will you please use the following steps to make sure you are creating a ‘post’ rather than a ‘comment.’

      1. ​Students need to go to the site and login using the link in the upper right hand corner of the screen.http://sites.middlebury.edu/movementmatters/
      2. When students get to the site they can select to add a “post” by using the menu bar at the very top of the screen.
      3. When students create their post they need to select the appropriate “category” based on their course (“Noticings: Ed in the U.S.” This is found on the right hand side of the screen toward the bottom of the page.

      Thank you!
