21st Century Learning - Different kinds of minds

Temple Grandin herself diagnosed with autism as a child reinforces in this video about the different ways we process information. She talks about how she thinks visually and that which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She mentions about others who are pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers etc., and how they all process information differently. She reiterates that that we all have different ways of thinking, behaving and learning and that educators need to consider a wide variety of strategies while educating children.

Inspiring & enlightening talk by Temple! Please watch the video till the end and consider sharing this talk with everyone you know. Please post your comments below as I would love getting insight!
