Module 2 Weblog #1

I was looking for more information about the theory of emotional intelligence when I came across the author’s blog. What really caught my eye was the mention of “ecological intelligence”. I must admit after watching Dr. Lee’s video several times it seems to me that we are going about this the wrong way round. If we have all these indigenous groups around us who have hundreds (or even thousands) of years of practise then why don’t we listen to these experts instead of our media proficient academics selling “how to do” books? It reminded me of a Douglas Adams’ quote “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” (1952-2001). Maybe it is time to stop reading every body else’s theories and rather we should take more time to reflect on what we have experienced in the classroom and learn from those who live these theories from day to day.
