How can the Alexander Technique enhance the educational process?

John Dewey wrote: It (the technique of Mr. Alexander) bears the same relation to education that education itself bears to all other human activities in his introduction to Alexander's third, and most assessable book, The Use of the Self. John Dewey was America's most famous philosopher and played a major role in shaping American public education in the first half of the 20th century. You can read more about him, and his connection with Alexander at the John Dewey and F. Matthias Alexander Homepage. In this conversation, Robert and Eileen discuss this quote and just how Alexander's discoveries can help a student learn more effectively. Click here to download or listen to this conversation .
