Tactile learners

learn best by doing: they need direct involvement;

Auditory learners

learn best by hearing or listening.

Visual learners,

learn best by seeing: they prefer watching demonstrations; have intense concentration and ability to visually imagine information.

Print learners

think in words: they quickly learn to read and easily can memorize the correct spelling of words.



Our schools are based almost exclusively on print learners strategies. In  the nects 30 years according to the UN, we will have more graduates then since the beginning of hystory. That means that we have to take in consideration all the kind of learners to have a right skill distribution in our society.

Finally reflecting on how dyslexic experience letters in a 3d way I started asking myself how a school system that has an experimental and visual learning approach could look like. How could a school involve all kind intelligences?

sorry, the paper had no 3d dimension

"I wanted to find a system involving a physical hectic experience of writing."

I wanted to find a system where letters are perceived as 3d object so that words are memorised as pictures, using visual strategies rather than phonetic ones but also I wanted to find a system involving a physical hectic experience of writing.

Very interesting is an american research that shows that children who used play-blocks had later a significantly higher language development than the others.

Combining this research I decided substitute the common wood blocks by bigger ones in letter shape.

Through them kids will be taught to write in space engaging the whole body having a hectic experience of the writing. Furthermore it enables visual strategies to memorize the words as pictures.


Design allowed me to create tools that transform weaknesses into strengths inspiring solutions that can benefit not just dyslexics but all the members of society.
