Story title: Recalling school
Submitted by: Ida Brandão
DL story: As a student in an arts school, already as an adult, I recall the importance that the teachers (designated as «masters») always stressed in planning first and doing afterwards.
«Arts of fire» involved pottery making, ceramics painting, moulds and metal working.
Learning by doing was the main methodological approach, but planning and drawing was always the first step.
Whenever one rushes to do things first, without reflecting and planning beforehand, things go wrong.
Even for a simple videocast, it’s better to plan the storyboard first and record it afterwords , the result turns out better.
The preparation takes longer but one gains time during the process of doing. This structure is important for any learner and should start from early ages.
