I read somewhere that children are synesthetes but as they grow they lose the capacity to have these synesthetic associations.
How about combining music with art in schools? Writing with music? Writing and art? Physical movements and writing? Maths and art?
Think about all the combinations. We tend to separate everything into boxes, and, as we do that, we may be curtailing our kids' creativity.
Something to think about and research on. I hope neuroscientists and educators will work together to research this and enhance the educational experience.
