Reimagining Socrates

Furkies Purrkies #939

Enhanced cognition is not a promise of a microchip, as you can’t make an untrained brain better, by adding even more empty space. Just like we won’t become more useful or fetching, with an extra arm or two. We won’t become smarter, if we add more brain. In fact we have plenty of room, close your eyes and try to navigate the walls of your apartment. So as long as it is connected, you’ll recall all the meaningful details. If you added pencil drawing to recalling details of those walls, you’d even refine...

Growing Up In Safety Of Wisdom

Growing Up In Safety Of Wisdom

Furkies Purrkies #938

It is not true that wisdom can only come with age, or that living life is the most powerful source. Wisdom, is the very thing that thinkers, aim to transport or deliver in books. A paper book is like a hard drive, paper is used for storage of information. Reading a book is not the best way, and for many it is difficult. The best way to get at the wisdom in a book, is to hear it, as it is voiced by the author. When we combine the wisdom in books, with authors that record it. We end up with a near...

Jane Loevinger in her stages of ego development, describes people who can improve themselves, mend their shortcomings. In the quest for self...

To give you all you need to know in the first paragraph, stick cheap LCD interval timer on your customer(s). There are interval timer applications for phones, but the simpler the better, let the phone play music.

Furkies Purrkies #934

Exercise is easy and there are things that we can learn on our own, for example jogging will give a person larger leg muscles. In a way all the world’s joggers are running a massive experiment for you, results of which you can see with our own eyes. Rather than listening to a trainer that says, oh lift this way, that will quickly fill up your shoulder muscles. Who may have no idea what he is talking about, or how long it would take, and how long the exercise must last. Listen or look at athletes, that...

I am nearing the completion of my latest program, it generates a simple website based on folders with text files. I had a lot of fun writing it, there are many little programming gems that can make code fascinating. They are all too strange to describe, but they are like little creatures, each from a different galaxy. They are called libraries, and when you plug them into your program, you inherit the functionality within. There is also this cute little programming style, where you just write everything...

The Students Know

The Students Know

Furkies Purrkies #932

In computer programming we get shame-free instant feedback, whatever is not understood, will soon reveal it self, and guide the student. This is a form of testing, but more than that it is instant feedback, without shame. Unlike tests there are no threats of being held back here, of needing to repeat the class, or being punished in some other way. Teachers often say that tests and grades are a form of motivation, and that does make sense in ineffective or fake schools. Ineffective education is...

What The Doodle Is A Tutorial Anyway?

Furkies Purrkies #931

A tutorial is long step by step adventure, that explains a valuable talent, process, and technique. It can be said that a tutorial, is the finest personal learning experience. On the high end, of the spectrum... When you refine a tutorial, what you get is a series of 12 steps. That go by the nam e of: lectures, so a tutorial taken to a proper maximum.

I’ve been diagramming since 6th grade, my first real program diagram was about a lottery simulation. The bullies saw me pacing up and down the corridor, and laughed when I got a low graded. (For being accused of cheating, ...of copying my program from elsewhere.) But, I navigated the heck out of that thing, I later bought a Simon's BASIC book with my little savings.

I’ve been making web pages, for ages. I have learned so much, just by creating buttons and such. I just started a looking at code, and I learned a boat load. Learning was never too bad, and I even just used notepad. At first I learned HTML and ASP, but then Perl worked hard on the server for me. It was a beautiful adventure in code as I jumped to PHP, ActionScript, Java, and now node. It was all so fascinating, that I never stopped creating. If you make programming your aim, know that it is like a fun...

Art Of Knowledge; Or, School Assesses Your Memorization Because It Cannot Create Comprehension

Furkies Purrkies #928

Comprehension requires correct materials, which is to say materials structured around easy on-ramps. We are not mechanical robots, we are poets and dreamers, we need captivating access to a subject. Learning for real requires individualized instruction, which is respectful of sequence that agrees with the student. And moves at the correct pace that isn't overwhelming, at a pace that the student is comfortable with. Teaching and Learning both belong to the same form of art, it is the Art Of Knowledge. Up...
