Teaching To See

Inge is a thought-leader in design, and covers some nice approaches to education in this documentary (made by Edward Tufte).

She defines a good lesson as a set of experiences with a goal.

Eyes are conservative. They want structure and order
Hands are radical. They want to go faster and be expressive.
