The happiest bit of my news is that Robert Krampf has very kindly allowed me to use his video, A Colour You Can’t See, to create a Viewing Task for you, my students.

This MI-RBT Task elicits your Listening Skills. The MI (Gardner’s MI) you apply while listening are Visual and Logical.
The RBT (Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy) level of this task checks out your ability to Know and Understand. While listening, pause to recall and answer the questions:
