Sir Ken Robinson says… Our students are living in the most intensely stimulating period of the history of the earth! They are being besieged with information that pulls their attention… from computers, from iPhones, from advertising and hundreds of TV channels AND they are being penalized for what? Being distracted…. from What? “BORING STUFF”! Students .. Particularly Special Education Students need Aesthetic Experiences… when their senses are operating at their peak… When they are fully alive!
