1 on 1 education

About 30 minutes into the video embedded below, Clayton Christensen talks about 1 on 1 education. In this regard, Mr. Christensen shares an interesting story about a girl with a high degree of bodily-kinesthetic intelligence who became able to learn to read better, as she was encouraged by a teacher to choreograph the alphabet – shaping out the A, B etc. when she was dancing to music. Building on this story, I read here that Howard Gardner sees mental and physical activity as related. This reminds me that I sometimes get good ideas when I go for a run.
