eLearning organizations representing the social evolution

b2ap3_thumbnail_education.jpg

Whenever we look back into the human evolution there is a trend line moving upward faster from the time when the technological advancements have matured.

As the intellectual effort became more important than the physical labor, the question is whether at this time there is a fair recognition worldwide for it, and if there is, how it is shared in the world.

Coincidences

b2ap3_thumbnail_coincidences.jpg

“In Jewish history there are no coincidences” Elie Wiesel

“The bottom line is that humans are very bad at understanding probability. Everyone finds it difficult, even I do. We just have to get better at it. We need to learn to detect when data is  manipulated. Changing axes on a chart is one way, but there are many other subtle ways to do it. ““If we understood probability perfectly, then we would be less open to manipulation” and “Coincidences never happen to me at all, because I never notice anything,” David Spiegelhalter

The attitude of a conqueror

b2ap3_thumbnail_Plotina.jpg

During the last decades, we have learned, watched or participated directly in those events that resulted in organizations taking over other organizations. Considering the amount of knowledge that we have today, the cultural changes don’t happen overnight therefore a question that comes to my mind is why organizations acquire organizations that have a completely different culture? Because beyond the purpose of gaining the market share leading to an increase of short term profit etc. the main purpose should be to collaborate and make better products, new services to the market or in other words make the investors happier.

My Mother

b2ap3_thumbnail_mymother.jpg

There is no human born on Earth without a mother and if there is anything that we shall cherish throughout our lives than that is our mother’s love. This is the only love that shall bring us in peace together.

My mother is still the best because the way she raised us, me and my brother. She was patient enough to believe that one day we will understand her struggle with life’s challenges. While she is on her last days of her life, there wasn’t anything that she could have done in her entire life to make it more perfect than it has been.

Social endeavors and their acceptance levels

b2ap3_thumbnail_Boldini-Giovanni-1896-Portrait-of-Madame-Charles-Max_20160120-222103_1.jpg

I have seen the “Portrait of Madame Charles Max” painted by Boldini Giovanni exposed on two different occasions, but each time it gave me a different feel for that gracious and fluid move as she tries to hold on her dress. Her refined figure, gentle look gives us retrospection into what was happening during 19th -20th century in the world. It was a time when women were taking the world stage and claiming to be treated with respect, as equal partners.

Understanding the "waves" of events

b2ap3_thumbnail_Watching-the-waves.jpg

Just the other day, I was working with one of my young students to determine the function formula when either the cos or sin graph was provided. If many of you are not very familiar with sin/cos graphs please check them because they are used in many applications. Some examples are music waves, space flights, signal transmissions etc. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigonometric_functions)

Understanding the dimensions

b2ap3_thumbnail_20151231_093230.jpg

Many of the readers might be familiar with terms used like “let’s look at a project or system from above 10,000 ft.” or whatever other height. Many of you might be also familiar with “let’s look at the larger picture” before we do something etc.  The problem is that this approach, in fact, prevents many students or people to see and observe anything.

Business architectures and art

b2ap3_thumbnail_20151230_060538.jpg

There has been a lot of literature written about the business architectures, yet the question is whether the principles of art have been used to develop the quality of any business to full potential. Being in Rome for several times, I tried to understand whether I felt any different each time when I have seen the same sculpture. I take as reference the Fontana di Trevi.  The art has always a purpose that is communicated from the maker (the artist) to the future viewers. An artist uses emotions when creating the piece of art, while the viewers have emotions when seeing the piece of art. The main transfer of communication happens through emotions.

Optimal policy to interact with the environment

 b2ap3_thumbnail_20151102_111343.jpg

The environment surrounds us and yet how much knowledge and data do we really have about our direct impact on it? How fast can we make changes to our human system such that its direct effect on the environment will be transformed by becoming always a positive relationship?

There are many questions that we can ask and yet it is up to the policy makers to decide on which policies have to be changed such that the environment will be positively impacted.

Orphans

b2ap3_thumbnail_Orphans.png

I would probably never thought as profoundly about orphans if we would not have them in our family, but I came to understand the turmoil that children have when one parent is no longer with them. The tragedy is when they reach a certain age and they cannot trigger any past memories about a time when they were together with both parents. The loving memories that they should have are non-existent, yet they need to fill that void with many positive things that surround them.

Writing work instructions

b2ap3_thumbnail_210857121_d8fc221e0f_o.gif

 

Processes and procedures have instructions that are most of the time written and displayed on boards, books (binders), network etc. While accessibility, accuracy and level of details are paramount regardless whether there are written instructions referring to the kitchen’s assembly door or patient’s treatment, the art has to be transferred through its letters and/or images to the readers’ hearts and minds. Some of you might have asked the question regarding why the reader has to understand the art and its insight before understanding the letter’s instructions.

A simple "apple"

b2ap3_thumbnail_apple.png

Built on a myriad of interconnected systems that ensures a perpetual existence of rather large and complex environments, eLearning and mLearning are directly influencing the human development and technological advancements at international levels. The unseen influences become seen when all people start to realize that they have the same feel for everything that has been condemned by everybody else.

Even if “international consciousness” is a term not used for now, its power has been seen extensively in the last years.

An Autistic Education System and some societies’ consequences

b2ap3_thumbnail_Moral-Education.jpg

 

 

Most likely, the majority of the readers have learned about the damaging effects of an autistic brain and its effects on the personal development. Although some of the causes have been identified and categorized largely as genetic and environmental, there are still many unknown factors that contribute to autism.

Excluding those cases that are rather severe and have a known behavioral pattern as impossibility to communicate and live a fulfilling life, the focus on the “autistic” education system as well as the consequences of being taught by “marginal autistic” educators should be  seen from the perspective of the societal environment. An education system that generates through some educators “autistic” adults will continue to generate more and more people who will not be able to live fulfilling lives.

“Quantum Gates” within a Lean Six Sigma environment

b2ap3_thumbnail_3658348920_16078d1d4f_o.jpg

We all have learned about continuous and dynamic changes that happen in the nature as well as their correlations as either a temporal, long term, or more permanent change. We have learned that everything that was done yesterday will have to pass the time’s gate if it materializes into a tomorrow’s existence.

Aspects about learning and art

First the Story:

I recently discovered that the word Momotaro means “Peach Boy” and has a beautiful story according to the present form of the tale (dating to the Edo period), Momotarō came to Earth inside a giant peach, which was found floating down a river by an old, childless woman who was washing clothes there. The woman and her husband discovered the child when they tried to open the peach to eat it. The child explained that he had been sent by Heaven to be their son. The couple named him Momotarō, from momo (peach) and tarō (eldest son in the family). [1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Momotar%C5%8D
