Teaching does not directly translate into Learning
Experiences

Language
Information
Knowledge
Retention
Comprehension
Application
Extension

Teaching does not necessarily provide Necessity
Fixed Curriculums

Fixed Classrooms
Fixed Testing
Fixed Grades & Levels
1 to 30 Format
Self Concept

Inclusiveness
Active Open Learning
Cognition
Critical Life Skills

Learning is not a passive Act

perseverance, persistence, tenaciousness, experimentation, exploration, openness, confidence, sureness, fortitude, resilience, inclusiveness, 360 views, documentation, proof process, validation, systemic mapping, diversity, interaction, uncertainty, explanation, freedom

Teaching means nothing if there is not Learning

Content need not be reinvented by every Locality or Person

Individual needs can inclusively defined and Specifically met

Commons needs are about experience, interaction, Equality

Here are NETS ideas to consider for public education:

 

 

A continuous thread should revolve around the dignity of everyone
A continuous thread should revolve around rich and diverse experiences
A continuous thread should revolve around systemic thinking
A continuous thread should revolve around computer based creation
A continuous thread should revolve around interactions with communities


 

Everyone should learn the equivalent of a Registered Nurse about the human body,
        and specifically their body
All sciences should be aligned and integrated, with emphasis on experiential learning
        in the natural world and practical application (added by Angela)
All social sciences should be aligned and integrated toward meaning
All math should link to computer based creation


 

 

All language should align and integrate models, visualizations, representations and music
Assessments & diplomas should revolve around a rich life portfolio of creations, achievements,
360 notes and validated competence
Movies and Gaming should become integral to teaching for learning

  1. I love this! If I may make a suggestion, I believe that education needs to include experiential learning not just related to science, math and computers- but also to the natural world. More and more we lose our ability to make personal connections with the earth. If we are to implement healthy change within our communities, this must also include a healthy environment. David Orr wrote a book called Earth in Mind that does a nice job of explaining in greater detail what I mean. Check it out, it’s pretty neat!

  3. Thank you for your comment Angela. We agree with what you have said and added it into the post. We are also familiar with Earth in Mind and think it is a informative tool.
    Thanks again,

  5. Angela,
    Here is a post on Linked IN this morning that resonates with what Y Worlds is attempting to point to? I am always triggered by the world “should” in building any new learning structure which was used in this post. It is the beginning for demanding obedience in public education and offering a new “third order systemic system” again that in the end becomes another cultural observer error based in power. What follows is just another educational process in learning restricting free human imagination within living conditional situations. In other words process is everything and currently we need distinction~dissolving learning of all indoctrinated beliefs systems while being consciously aware that all learning is social and is perfect already always.

    Mushin• @Elles consciousness is a non~local phenomena becoming aware as an autopoietic closed “observer agency” within a living universe transcending spatial time in presence.

    You have unearthed a very interesting reflective conversation and I feel love. I am wondering what kind of a new society we could create together based on such a notion of “dignified human ecology” in the unitary epistemology of autopoiese? It’s anew blank canvas only dependent on you (I) (we) (us) MBTI! What would happen if I learned what your historic background of concerns and passionate desires in your niche experience as a person is with no expectation of doing some ‘thing’ or getting some ‘thing’? What if, we simply enjoyed the exploratory encounters and attended our hearing of one another by creating wise singing of new songs in communication, relationship within a communitarian sense of “being” as a social experience?

    I fell in love with Autopoiese and being autopoietic in 1984 when I met Humberto Maturana for the 1st time at a Fernando Flores conference called “Peace, Passion, Relationship.” What I can report after attending all my encounters with others over the years is that autopoiesis is simply an autonomous decision to be a responsible lover of others in appreciate conversations expecting no~thing other than the pure enjoyment of sharing and being with one another. When I drill down into Humberto’s relationships with Gregory Bateson (ecology of mind), Heinz Von Forrester (systemic laws of computations), Francisco Verela (1st person research), or Fernando Flores (Communicative Competency) what I see is they were all social friends and loved one another first as autopoietic agents and explorers operating in a triadic manner of appreciative conversations in cognitive science in diverse domains of expertise offering explanations. The human autopoietic heart beat is the consistent foundational “zero point” in turning solo reflections into a robust rigorous unitary symphony’s of interactive relational passionate songs! We are all poets starting with our own agency narrative.

    Vincent Kenny’s observations in the domain of psychotherapeutic praxis is right on! Collapsing the autopoieitc notion in third-order society is inhuman, oppressive and the contra varient for realization. Today in America we are fixated on a public discussion of a fiscal cliff conversation while denying a Climate Cliff even exists. Like denial in a family unit it is a courageous act to break the party~line as the marginalized “identified patient” and “constructively create appropriate boundaries.” The climate cliff solution is not going to come from the UN, governments, corporations, legislative or judicial policies wonks, rather from autopoietic agents in our humanity leading the realization~in~living caring, feeding, nurturing future generations in love.

    Vincent spoke of the Nazi Concentration Camps and next Friday “Defiant Requiem” is playing at Boulder Film Festival where 150 Jewish prisoners committed Verdi’s chorale to memory and performed it 16 times before Adolf Eichmann dignitaries. Nazi’s ignorance of Latin concealed the fact that Verdi’s immortal Requiem was a towering operatic rage against oppression and death.

    We create all kinds of asylums for autopoietic agents like “USA Pine Ridge Reservation Prisoner Camp #334″ where the inmates refuse to go along with demands for obedience and negation of their free self regulated autopoietic power as independent agents.

    The autopoietic decision is simple in my assessment “do you (i) (we) (us) want to love and be loved in a manner of ethical human dignity or do you (i) (we) (us) want to live in power of institutional assumptive representational discourses?

  7. Just saying, (not complaining) but I agree, “Should” can sometimes sound like a whack in the head or something. The sound it makes sounds like a blunt object, like a big stick, sailing through the air.. and heavily thudding against someone.
    There are lots of words like that that have a sound that quite accurately imply a physical action that they could be associated with. (going off on a tangent here…yeah i do that)

    Stab is a great (but gross) one – each of its letters sounds imply a part of the stab action from the start to the end. Other ones are oil (depicting the thick flow of a drop of oil), labour, task, assassin (and knife), drive, push, point, far, puncture, sink… there are so many others.

    …to come back to some kind of (broader) relevance… these are ways that people in the past (unwittingly or intentionally) have made a sort of picture or virtual physical shape to associate with the sound. Today we dont notice so much… the picture the sound makes.. we dont notice it often or at least not consciously… Words have so much meaning besides what we intend. Its almost like they have an array of little optional tags or mods attached to be deployed via the tone or delivery of the voice used (however, words are stripped of these and become very low-res in texts/sms and text chat). Finely tune-able quick-response analogues of these nuances would need to be recreated in a visual language. (*clunk* -gear change)

    Really need more of starting points to work with. its sort of.. like that example:
    … we want a souffle.. and the main ingredients are here.. but… need to know some processes and conditions to begin a sequence that will hopefully point the way itself. (Sorry I started off narrowly relevant then went somewhere else).

  9. As a great feminine teacher once taught me in my life using “should” is “shitting on your self!” And yes we have numerous iterations on the edges of our social interactions and here are a few to come to mind parasitisms, plundering, projections, disputes, contracts, border disputes, wars, assumptions, arguments, sins, absorption, filtration, predation, desires, resistance, persuasion, assertions, commerce, pains, reunification.

    What I observe is a demand for demand for obedience and negating of free, independent, self regulated positive feed back loops based in mutual dignified conditions of satisfaction utilizing existing systemic observer errors in the cultural matrix based in representational historic assumptions in language causing the collective illness of insanity. So the question of truth in reality is always codified in some objective esoteric bullsh%$t and authentic live speech lives in denial based in dead speech. For instance look how God is used in religious discourses. Should do this and that in every practice imaginable. No one get’s to talk to him and have a conversation? Now everyone’s level of suspicion is raised on that note. So sin becomes an eternal error substantiated by an imaginary ghost scaring the daylights out of people and used for political control of human behaviors. Holy men have a tendency to lie not just to themselves but to the entire congregation in the name of power and it’s all bottled into the story of creation. Well in my honest assessment that story is over and DOA in the 21st century. Hope is nonsense and love is real and tangible dignified communications, relationships and communitarian activity between people, planet and sustainable justice in prospering P2P, C2C, G2G. I see that as enactive embodied realization in living as a joyful concern in thriving as a human being and self directed by source generative intelligence that needs no exoteric laws, rules, assumptions, or discipline. Love, agape, ethics, compassion, right of consciousness is hard wired in our biological deterministic structure and is the one and only CAS necessary to design a future world together in balance, harmony, justice, equanimity and sustainability.
    Thanks and I am not sorry for being a pain in the ass!
