- How People Learn 101
Sharing is Caring and the Web Makes that a Delight…
In continuing our efforts to help people understand how people learn, I write this article and play a little relay and networking by sharing onward a neat video for you to watch.
I’ve stumbled across this wonderful site and choose to share with you the essence of an article I was going to write by incorporating their little videos with big messages. I see no value in re-inventing the wheel, and I’m inclined to connect with the wisdom and unique expression others employ in sharing what they’re sharing for the improvement of education. After all, as a team (in Spirit or actual), so much more will be accomplished in a shorter time frame.
You see, nothing on this site is “invented” in a vacuum, is it? of course, not, we are a collective consciousnesses as Carl Jung pointed out, albeit it is largely a collective UN-consciousness, it is a shared consciousnesses nonetheless, and networking by sharing onwards begins a process whereby our efforts can unite for a greater good.
Those engaged in emphasizing learning and encouraging creativity within Principle to return our teaching methodologies and schools back into mighty fine educational systems have my support and I join in my heart with their efforts.
In time, it is my hope that our efforts may join in a Unity of Oneness and manifest in real life collaborative projects making for a co-creation effort.
To that end, I’ve chosen to “write” this article via the creativity of those who produced this video. It is far more charming and fun than reading an article per se. And, besides, I enjoyed their effort and desire to spread around our shared message via their video producing animations, which are far superior to my simple skills in that department. So, I TRULY appreciate their production. Without further ado, I present to you a 3:54 video, the first in a 3 part series, from the creative juices of Born to Learn, entitled, “Born to Learn: Class Reunion”
In our desire to initiate a grassroots understanding of how people learn, we blog educational sense back into main stream consciousness so that parents and other interested parties can demand the quality and types of changes that will create functional schools.
With enough people getting clarity on issues of Principle over policy and understanding how people learn, we can expect to see healthy functioning schools becoming the norm because they will be required by parents with insight to mend all the ‘cracks’ currently harming present day student populations.
And, oh, yeah, the tenacity to prolong boredom has me stumped, too! A needless, useless senseless activity benefits, whom?
Eradicating boredom from the educational mix is a vital component in initiating and engaging a peaceful and powerful revolution in education that will positively restore our natural love of learning. This love has become perverted into an avoidance of learning due to poor teaching approaches not well aligned with how we actually learn.
Love is all about emotion and that means what we are doing needs to matter to us; it is the heart of motivation. Learning is not dismissed from our emotion because the two are intrinsically bound forming an integral matter of our heart and mind in harmony.
We invite you to share, too! by posting your answers or other commentary with us in the comments below! I would love to hear what you have to say in advancing our educational insights as a community of interested parties in much better education for everyone.
