article description
To help learners consolidate learning before the end of a classroom session, they can be instructed to use found objects at hand to illustrate the most salient ideas they are taking away. Such deliberate veering from verbal language alone provides easy entry to challenging material and a way to capture knowledge using mental channels other than typical verbal-linguistic ones—making learning more likely to be transformative and lasting.
