What do you Perfink?

Idea: There is a danger in designing lessons for “thinkers”–because human beings NEVER just think. We are, as David Kresh suggested, “perfinkers” because we perceive, feel, and think at the same time. We PERFINK. Feeling lies at the core of our meaning-making. How does pedagogy (and what we believe to be “best practice”) change if we look at our students as PERFINKERS?

Practitioners comments: “It acknowledges the role of EMOTION in all learning. And with emotion comes imagination. Hand in hand.”
