I think childhood objects has played important role in how we think, how we approach something. I personally think it still has influence on the way we work/think even as adults. I completely agree with philosophy of lifelong kindergarten, I think this is very essential for us to be curious, creative and joyful. So yes, childhoods objects have impact on us.

Have you heard Steve Job’s speech? It’s about connecting the dots, I’m a bit fatalist if you like but just 2 days ago we read an interview to K. Lorenz who says that very often the signs of the naturalist are present before he is 5 years old. I’m not deterministic with my pupils but I try to develop “narrative orienteering”.

Olá. Eu lembro-me de brincar com peças de Lego. Fazia pequenos personagens (relacionados com as pessoas da rua onde morava) e depois inventava histórias para eles, tudo muito básico. Também partilhava aquelas brincadeiras com o meu irmão e reparava que ele preferia usar o Lego de forma diferente, pois em vez de construir bonecos e casinhas ele construia carrinhos e espalhava as outras peças no chão para fazer uma pista de corridas para os carrinhos. Hoje ele é militar e eu sou professora primária. Que influência teve o Lego? Permitiu reproduzir vivências observadas no meio circundante em que vivíamos construindo os personagens ou objetos ligados à realidade em que estavamos imersos.
