Picture a circle, divided into 3 equal parts, these 3 roads, Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric, when used in
that specific order, repetitively, with active learning engaged… produces ever increasing degrees of certainty. If you rotate this circle, and progress it horizontally, it creates a line of repeating steps, Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric, Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric, etc. and this is a comprehensive decision making process. It is the process used to deceive all of us to lock our own minds early in life, as being deprived ofthis simple natural reflection of the human learning process, we accept whatever feels emotionally pleasant as truth, and that does not compute, if you’ll excuse the irony.
Critical thinking cannot be effectively taught in a curriculum, as it is a skill which results from the processof thinking, and learning, and is driven by the grammar, logic, and rhetoric cycle of observation, thought,and action. The purpose of grammar is to bring initial and consistent order to a body of knowledge.
The purpose of logic is to extract understanding from the body of knowledge. Rhetoric is the cogent explanation of that body of knowledge. If done effectively, this is known as teaching. When one realizes that they desire to change their environment, either as recognition of a problem or the inspiration for a new creation or improvement, the learning process is necessary. Oct 6

Since we began, over 700 000 Australians have studied with Open Colleges in vocational and professional courses that all offer flexible study options. People today are busier than ever and combining study with your real life is less of a challenge than it used to be, with so many of us now online. It’s not 1900 anymore; people don’t spend 60 years in one job with a gift of a gold watch upon retirement. Our students are seeking to improve their lives, increase their employment options or to study for a new career entirely.

There are basically two things a person can learn in this world : Positions and movements. Physically, positions are static postures. Shapes the body can take.
Some people have a tough time understanding what a concept is and what constitutes its underlying ontology. Atheists and Mathematicians are particularly known to attribute mysticism, magic and supernatural powers to concepts. They believe that concepts such as ENERGY, MASS, TIME, FIELD and FORCE are some type of mystical incorporeal entities in the Universe; akin to invisible souls or spirits.

Unschooling for Social Change Introduction The Freechild Project defines unschooling as the process of learning through life, without formalized or institutionalized classrooms or schoolwork. Unschooling relies on interpersonal relationships and natural learning progression to have effect on learners, instead of textbooks and classroom teachers. Self-education is the liberating practice of... teaching yourself. Freechild believes that deschooling is also anti-formalized and anti-institutionalized education of any sorts.
New Platform Lets Professors Set Prices for Their Online Courses - Technology
By Jeffrey R. Young Professors typically don't worry about what price point a course will sell at, or what amenities might attract a student to pick one course over another. But a new online platform, Professor Direct, lets instructors determine not only how much to charge for such courses, but also how much time they want to devote to services like office hours, online tutorials, and responding to students' e-mails.
Living in a cozy little cabin nestled in the woods is part and parcel of the classic Thoreau-inspired lifestyle most folks dream of now and then. But the romantic vision of log-home life is shattered — for many people — by the sheer cost of such structures, which can be as high as that of equivalent conventional homes. That doesn't have to be the case, however. My wife and I kept down the cash outlay for our “Walden” by gathering most of the materials from the land where our house was to stand, and then building it ourselves, using only hand tools. As a result, our small home cost us only about $100 to construct … and the project was so simple that we’re convinced anyone with access to a few basic implements and a good supply of timber could build a log cabin too.

Collective work by some thirty authors from civil societies all over the world, deciphers the central concepts of the information society”. Technology is never neutral: it carries social, economic and cultural consequences. New information and communication technologies are no exception.The words used in international negotiations or legislation are a poor reflection of such consequences; they propagate perceptions that are rarely subjected to democratic debate, the fundamental requirement for any political decision. This book subjects the concepts of the information age to critical perspectives from different sensibilities and cultures, thus introducing alternative visions. Fully multilingual, this work is a reference for anyone who aspires to decode these key issues, and is an invitation to pursue the debate. Contents

Welcome to the Peeragogy Handbook! Peeragogy is a collection of techniques for collaborative learning and collaborative work. By learning how to “work smart” together, we hope to leave the world in a better state than it was when we arrived. Indeed, humans have always learned from each other. But for a long time — until the advent of the Web and widespread access to digital media — schools have had an effective monopoly on the business of learning. Now, with access to open educational resources and free or inexpensive communication platforms, groups of people can learn together outside as well as inside formal institutions.
Philosophy Children are natural learners A fundamental premise of unschooling is that curiosity is innate and that children want to learn. From this an argument can be made that institutionalizing children in a so-called "one size fits all" or "factory model" school is an inefficient use of the children's time, because it requires each child to learn a specific subject matter in a particular manner, at a particular pace, and at a specific time regardless of that individual's present or future needs, interests, goals, or any pre-existing knowledge he or she might have about the topic. Many unschoolers believe that opportunities for valuable hands-on, community-based, spontaneous, and real-world experiences are missed when educational opportunities are limited to, or dominated by, those inside a school building.
38. Identifying Different Psychopaths
Leon Festinger In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the excessive mental stress and discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time. This stress and discomfort may also arise within an individual who holds a belief and performs a contradictory action or reaction. For example, an individual is likely to experience dissonance if they are addicted to smoking cigarettes and continue to smoke despite knowing it is unhealthy. Leon Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency.
