Why play with “Vektorelle”? Because not all kids are equally gifted in numerical intelligence or equally predisposed to learning maths. Science states this clearly and today we know even more. Kids have many kinds of sensibilities and attitudes and an infinite range of sensorial and emotional chords we can reach with the right tool. When understanding a topic means “fear” or “pain”, the only truth is that:“If you learn with the fear of not understanding” you “will learn and imprint the fear”. “If you learn with pain and low self-esteem, you’ll imprint pain and low self-esteem.”
When, whether sooner or later, you come to learn Cartesian space, traditional tools are not always the friendliest. We’ve constantly found three-dimensional representations on two-dimensional surfaces, paper, boards and screens. Instead of forcing a kid to understand on paper, a topic necessary to understand the real-space objects of the physical world, why don’t we use a physical tool? A tool that is beautifully and consistently designed and constantly implemented for the purpose. It is whilst playing with physical objects, by touching, building, experiencing, sharing mistakes and fun with family and with friends, that we learn. These are the only common drivers able to create that positive bond we want to forge with a topic as crucial for kids’ scholastic future as Cartesian space …Do we need to remind you why this is important? Because very basic Cartesian principles will be needed later to fully learn, maths, science, design and so on. If you don’t get it right and happily imprinted as the ‘ABC’, you’ll very likely have difficulties later in school. The goal of “Vektorelle Learn&Play” isn’t to force kids into complex operations, but to help them create a positive first memory with the topic; stimulating their minds by sharing unexpected and amazing questions with other kids, educators, and family.
"This tool was born thinking of children with the need to unlock their potential and the misfortune of not always being able to have continuous school or parental attention. Therefore a tool that is itself content and consistent explanation of the Cartesian system, a key topic for many theoretical and practical applications in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and drawing that will be encountered during the school career. The importance of the tool is the impact over time on learning and the exercise of rational thinking." The tool is based on a project accepted in double-blind-review and presented in a poster session at the MIT LINC 2019 Conference, Cambridge, MA. After a forced year of COVID-stop let's restart.
