❚ embodiment ✱ Edward Maupin

embodied state implies the embodied learner

The embodied state implies the “embodied learner,” who, once aroused, is the Real thing: a human being in touch with essential, core responses. The appropriate education for such a learner is obviously student-centered. The embodied learner can answer the question, “what do I want to learn?” Everything which innovative educators have evolved in the way of “self-directed learning” should work with them, because they can become aware of themselves in this way. Socratic dialogue is another part of student-centered learning. Rather than absorbing information through lectures, students need to evolve their own thinking through classroom dialogue.
