An idea worth spreading

My paradigm: Relentless in its search, the first order of life is immortality and the infinite universe the only place big enough to contain its audacious ambitions. As with all life, all knowledge is related and immortality will probably go to those species who most wisely make use of their intellects, exploring ever beyond known limits to make constructive use of the correlations. Those enlightened ones understand that chaos can only exist if every moments circumstance is not the consequence of our in/action in the moment before. From a higher perspective even the impossible is happening as it should and chaos is but order with options. To know these things is to understand that luck or chance are human concept used to explain a situation or outcome determined by and dependent on events beyond the limits of our physiology to perceive and therefore predict or order...

I'm passionate about

learning and teaching!

David Anderson: Your brain is more than a bag of chemicals
While I agree with many of the ideas suggested in this talk I am curious about the number and types of test done to determine if the fly is able to learn a specific behaviour.. I have myself witnessed situations where children diagnosed with ADHD perform equal to typical children when the environment they were taught in supports their need to move. Specifically children who were too disruptive to regular stream classes were taught in smaller groups, permitted to sit on exercise balls and given squeeze toys they read efficiently and effectively answered questions which demonstrated their understanding of the text. all the while bouncing away and squishing the toys.

how do you think we can better utilize our intellectual capabilities in this modern age?
Hello Marcus, Checked your entry at the link you provided, then your TED profile and must say I'm impressed. I would like to show you a few things I believe would have great positive impact on your considerable, much needed and timely project. I have worked almost 20 years in health care and developed something called the HNAQ( holistic needs analysis queue). The HNAQ is a fractal key that helps explain the behaviour of certain complex systems and the interdependent relationships we share with every living thing on earth. Yes it's that awesome. It's functions are based on the most ubiquitous examples of bio mimicry ever discovered and can be applied in ways limited only by ones imagination to education, business, the life sciences and more. The HNAQ is a behavioural process which empowers personal and community growth by: 1) Rewarding curiosity, invested creativity, initiative, imagination, double loop learning and divergent thinking. 2) Encouraging us to reflect on, choose and act responsibly with our attitudes towards ourselves, others and our environment. 3) Allowing us to effectively share, manage, and refine our individual and collective skills. 4) Permitting us to collaboratively concentrate, validate and disseminate our knowledge in a transparent fashion. Let me know if you interested. P.s. Let us creat the means whereby 7 billion potential innovators contribute to "The most wise council, unrestrained intellect and the sum of all human knowledge." Cheers!

We should teach kids how to learn. We should teach kids how to teach.When they can do both well they graduate. Just informing is not enough.
Hello Jeff, Curiosity is not enough. Attitude, imagination and motivation, as well as invested skill and knowledge are what I consider the crucial assets necesarry. If I may elaborate: After the requisit ice breakers and not necessarily in the same order every time, I begin my first lesson with a conversation ment to entrench the idea that you commented on. learning is for me a team sport so I make sure they are comfortable with the idea that although I might lead the group most of the time, the best leaders know when to follow. In order to do this I present an exercise that encourages each member in the group to embody and articulate what attitudes ( or philosophy etc.) communicates for them a meaningful sense of assertive collaboration. This with some guidance; 1) makes evident and concrete our shared MOTIVATION, which is to learn. 2) A discussion follows where, collectively, we share SKILLS. The best rules of conduct respecting how and when we should 'act'tually collaborate or, if necessary, work alone, are established and put into practice. 3) we share KNOWLEDGE . Explaining (exploring) our unique perspectives provides all present a more complete or global understanding of any problem. I believe, it also gives each individual the opportunity and encouragement to use their initiative and shine. Hope this helped, cheers!

'It is incumbent of all students and educators to collaboratively and constructively challenge how and all that is taught, towards the goal of refining the methodology used to teach and the understanding of the subject matter in question.' Busby. This is a philosophy I put forward. I use it when I teach and I find that it empowers my students by making them aware of the importance of staying curious, taking responsible control of the questions and sharing unique (and therefore invaluable) perspectives. Every lecture becomes an incredible double loop learning experience.
