Replying to LO23779 --

Another interesting aspect of "learning with the body" is how kinetics
help us to learn. It's key in adult education and getting people and
groups to use their minds in new and creative ways. I'm aware of a number
of studies showing how specfiic physical movements trigger increased
learning capacities in the brain, but don't have any details. Perhaps one
of you could provide more insight or leads on resources concerning how
movement and body usage helps adults to learn?
