- There are different ways to achieve a goal (i.e. with and without soil).
- Ideas, like plants, need time, resources, and care if they are to grow and flourish.
- When resources are limited, you have to choose what you will nurture.
So what does all this have to do with doodling?
I got to thinking about how being tethered to my laptop precludes movement, which I find beneficial for learning (at all ages). I'm probably not coordinated enough to watch videos and interact with the class community while walking with a cell phone in hand. But some type of movement might be possible.
So will you help me with an unscientific experiment that will take about 10 minutes? I know that's a lot to ask, but you'll get to see a video unit from my Cross-Knit Looping eCourse and further the cause of fiber arts education. Here's what I'm asking:
1. Prepare to doodle using one of the following methods:
2. Launch a video: Click this link to launch an 8-minute video on splicing wool yarn and winding center-pull balls, or view it in the embedded player at the bottom of this post.
3. Doodle while watching the video.
4. Answer a few questions. Click this link to open a short survey. The survey is anonymous.
Even if you don't watch the video or take part in the survey, I'd love to hear what you think: Does doodling enhance learning for you?
