Multi-sensory and usage-woodmam

In order to develop the various senses, conscious activities should be undertaken, such as taking time to engage in various artistic activities. Sketching, drawing and other similar artistic activities promote the overall development of the visual faculty; sculpting develops not only the visual but also the tactile sense; learning music leads to a fine development of the sense of hearing; literature, poetry, drama and other literary activities raise the sense of speech and hearing to a new level.

  As the sensitivity of the sense organs continues to increase, they will gradually become sensitive to external stimuli, mobilise more organs when observing, observe more carefully and experience more deeply, and their ability to observe can be improved accordingly.

  (14) Mutual support - multi-sensory use

  In an experiment where children were asked to observe pictures, it was found that the retention rate was 25% when the pictures were observed visually only, and only 15% when the pictures were verbally described to the ears, but the retention rate increased to 65% when the visual and auditory senses were used together. It is clear that the synergistic activity of multiple sensory organs helps to improve the efficiency of observation.

  Modern biology has also shown that when one organ perceives something, the other senses automatically participate in it, resulting in a complete perceptual impression, which is called the "mutual support of the senses". This is the reason why, when we memorise words and vocabulary, reading and memorising are often more effective than simply copying or memorising them silently.

  During observation activities, it is best to involve as many sensory organs as possible. When it is windy, look at the changes in the landscape outside and listen to the sound of the wind blowing through; when eating an apple, observe its colour and shape, touch it with your hands, then smell it, cut it open to see the structure inside and taste it again; when doing experiments in class, record your observations as you go along ...... In short, mobilise In short, engage all the senses to join in the observation to enhance the effect.

  The principle of multisensory use does not advocate using the energy of all the senses equally, but rather means that while focusing on one or two senses in a particular activity or task, depending on the content or nature of the task, the active use of multiple senses is brought into play to involve them in the activity and enhance the effectiveness of the observation.

  By using multiple senses in parallel, a thing or phenomenon can act on all the sensory organs at the same time, so that the resulting observation is often more complete, more profound and closer to the essence.

  (15) Going out into nature - the feeling observation method

  Xu Xiake, a famous scientist and traveler of the Ming Dynasty in China, was educated by his mother from a young age to love the great rivers and mountains of the motherland and to love travelling to famous mountains and rivers, and to abandon the career path of merit and fame. His mother always took him on trips to nearby destinations and, at the age of 72, accompanied her son on a tour of the Zhang Gong and Shan Roll caves in Jingxi (now Yixing, Jiangsu). When the boy went on a trip, his mother personally packed his clothes for him. Infected and encouraged by his mother, Xu Xiak's love of nature led him to travel to sixteen provinces and regions, including Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong, Hebei, Shaanxi, Henan, Anhui, Guangdong, Hunan, Guizhou and Guangxi, making him the world's longest hiker and longest traveller at the time, and leaving behind a masterpiece of great scientific and literary value, The Travels of Xu Xiak.

  When Maupassant was a child, his mother, Lola, often took him out into nature, guiding him to notice every detail of it and to describe it vividly in the most concise and precise language, which helped him to improve his observation and language skills. This is why Lola has been described as Maupassant's 'first teacher' on the road to literature.

  Nature is profound and mysterious, unpredictable. It contains a wealth of instructions waiting to be explored and accessed. Nature is like a vast, veiled palace of knowledge. It contains knowledge of astronomy, zoology, botany, mineralogy, physics, chemistry and other sciences, and has direct links with history, geography, literature, aesthetics, music and so on, so that nature can be described as an encyclopaedia. Nature is also the world's best teacher, inspiring thoughtful questions with novel phenomena, attracting people to seek knowledge and being an important factor in intellectual development. The constant pursuit of new knowledge inspired by nature leads to a deeper and deeper understanding of nature, an expanding knowledge base and an increasing intellectual development.

  Nature is always the best teacher. Go out into nature to experience and discover its beauty, it will give you a true 'eye for detail'.

  (16) Hands-on - experimental observation

  In the study of "heat conduction", there is an experiment.

  In a test tube filled with cool water, so that the mouth of the tube up, and use the flame of an alcohol lamp to heat the upper part of the test tube, the water in the upper part of the test tube boiled, but feel the bottom of the test tube with your hand, still feel very cold, which means that water is not easy to transfer heat material.

  Then, the experiment was repeated, but this time the bottom of the tube was heated and the water in the tube was seen to boil very quickly. How did the water get hot?

  In order to understand the essence of this phenomenon, the experiment was repeated with a box-shaped test tube, which was clearly visible: when the bottom corner of the box-shaped test tube was heated, the purple-red aqueous potassium permanganate solution contained in the tube circulated in the box-shaped test tube; when the top corner of the box-shaped test tube was heated, the coloured aqueous potassium permanganate solution stood still.

  Since this property of water fluidity has been mastered, it is easy to understand that heat transfer in water, relies on the flow of water. In physics, this form of heat transfer is called 'convection'.

  Scientific analysis and understanding of certain principles, laws or phenomena through experiments and other means is an important means of developing observation skills.

  Experimentation is the process of identifying problems, asking questions and explaining and solving them, and requires a more thoughtful approach, requiring attention to the external manifestations that reflect the essential laws and a certain level of logical reasoning.

  It is important to be careful and analytical in your experiments, and it is best to keep a timely record of the phenomena you observe and how you feel about your observations, especially when a new subtle change of some kind flashes by, do not let it go easily, but write it down immediately and repeat the experiment and observation as often as possible, which may become a key element leading to a new discovery.
