Another dot in the blogosphere?

Shaken, not stirred

Posted on: September 8, 2015

I am away for a short period. I am posting some things I drafted in Evernote but had not shared yet.

I was in awe of this community when I watched this video of their plans to improve road safety by leveraging on the voices of children.

It will be an interesting social experiment to see how effective kids’ voices are at prompting drivers to slow down where kids are present.

According to one of its stakeholders, the move is supposed to have “visceral, physical, cognitive, behavioural effects” on adults because we are programmed to care for children.

If this is true, I wonder if any educational and social intervention should not have these four as the minimum outcomes: Visceral, physical, cognitive, behavioural effects. If we do not have the passion for a change or if something does not shake us to our core, why even bother?
