How to learn ECHOLOCATION ? Soundsight Training – part 2
Support the project at Kickstarter Soundsight Training.
The training method is experience based, so the users will be guided through monitored experiences that allow them understand the differences between different environment, different scenarios and different objects, and they will understand how sound bounce off them creating a huge amount of different echoes.
At first the exercises of our SoundSight Training will be static, basically our users should start understand how manage and perceive sound, and how sound change with different environment and with the presence of obstacles nearby. After macroscopic exercises the users should detect where a predefined obstacle is, on the right or on the left, for example.
The next step is the interaction with obstacles, the new challenge for the users will be detect the environment and avoid obstacles in a preconditioned time lapse.
All SoundSight users will experience their mistake, without negative consequences, in a comfort zone. It’s a method of solving problems. It is characterised by repeated, varied attempts which are continued until success,or until the agent stops trying.
This approach is far more successful with simple problems and in games, and is often resorted to when no apparent rule applies. This does not mean that the approach need be careless, for an individual can be methodical in manipulating the variables in an attempt to sort through possibilities that may result in success.
Aristotle wrote in the Nichomachean Ethics “for the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them”.
