A Paradigm Worth Considering!

A Paradigm of Multiple Nets!

Conceptual nets, including the links in the inside of brain, neural connections, neural pathways, conceptual / subject links/ technical links/ material links for inventions – nets in the outside world

Links inside and the links outside

Think! Which inspiring connectivity pathways can enrich our learning, teaching & creativity!

                       MAKING CONNECTIONS 

MULTIPLE-NETS have a secret power! How?

As the Nobel Laureate (Physics 2017) mentioned:

      “Huge discoveries are really the result of giant collaborations”

  Kip S. Thorne – Interview

https://www.nobelprize.org/nob el_prizes/physics/laureates/20 17/thorne-interview.html

 [And the Nobel Prize for Economics, one aspect: for linking psychology + economics]

https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/economic-sciences/laureates/2017/press.html

“If you want to be smart like Einstein, it’s all about having the proper connections”

                                                                      The Brain – The Ultimate Guide (pg.69)

Abdus Salam, a Nobel laureate in physics (1979) remarks:

 “The history of science is the history of search for unifying  concepts.”                                                                                                                                                   (Close, 2009)

Think! How do we make connections between the various ideas, objects, number relations, conceptual frames, linguistic nets?

“Imagination & knowledge can help to find the unknown with the help of the known and it can even reshape our frames of creativity”

-Dr. Altaf Qadeer


{7}

In our teaching and learning we make connections between a number of things (such as ideas, material objects, nets of numbers, nets of ideas, social-net, cognitive-net, internet and more), on the other hand there are many links made in our brains (neuron connections and more)—Is there any way to find if these connections made in the learning environment and in the inner world (Brain) have any effects on each other!

An interdisciplinary study can provide data to compare.

The need to start a new generation of literature

“Research Journals for Children”

Children also learn through the easy version of higher level books, such as Children’s Oxford Dictionary, Children’s Britannica etc.

 Have you ever seen children version of research journals?

 It is time to start this new generation of literature. Children’s Research Journals

(Simplified version, simple text, easy to understand pictures, less complicated math) can be published in many languages and in many subject areas to enrich our academic world.

 Imagine! Numerous benefits!

 The rationale is given in this article

 Why we need to introduce research journals for children?

A revolutionary step is possible

Cognitive-net, Social-net & Internet

(Please note- this idea is being presented for many years)

The need is very high and our current available resources may not be enough to meet all challenges in a short time.

One possible way to support world education (for all countries) is to consider the following (a humble idea):

–  Start a high quality, effective and multilingual online school with great teachers

–  The inclusion of reputed universities and internationally acknowledged institutes will enhance quality and there will be hope for higher level participation in the online school, for children and adult literacy

–    Teachers from various countries who also speak another language will be of help to share their multilingual expertise

–     Participation of celebrities and world-class educational personalities, scholars with great achievements, will be inspiring to many people, in the relevant context

–    Design and present lessons which are relevant to specific regions and the needs of learners

–     Free online quality education can be of some help in certain way

–     Where possible, online tutoring can also be provided to students,  to integrate personal interaction for better learning level to a possible level

–     Bring various world resources to powerful forum(s) to excel

–    Providing education which is culturally relevant, and where applicable course selection is available to address learner needs with their local level requirements

–     Women and girls can also participate from the place of their choice

–   Emphasis and collaboration for the availability of relevant technology resources

–   In the available circumstances and places, online learning is also supported by local level in-person teaching

–    Mutual respect and professionalism is promoted

 – The idea of an online university (Multilingual) is also possible,
[One aspect discussed in the following article of Toronto Star] :

http://www.thestar.com/opinion/columnists/2009/03/09/newcomers_languages_are_a_valuable_resource.html

The power of volunteer work can play an important role in this work.

This is perhaps one powerful solution to many issues that we want to address to promote peace and human rights through quality education.
