DailyDirt: Better Learning Techniques (Maybe)

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

More education can be the uncontroversial answer to a lot of problems. But better education tends to bring up questions about what makes one educational approach better than another, and how “better” is measured or defined — and if the methods of measuring education can be trusted at all. The solutions for creating better teaching/learning techniques aren’t always effective, but as we learn more about our brains, maybe we’ll figure out how to manipulate our grey matter with more precision. Here are just a few links on how we might improve the way we inject knowledge into our heads.

having your knowledge randomly played back is great

The ultimate app will keep you in touch with all your
Data “video audio pictures and text” for a lifetime.
The ability to randomly pick a video and then a different
entry point is key for disorganized video. Once organized
the app can pick random groupings of LARGE text with the
associated video pictures and audio for playback. Being
able to preselect the video and audio segment to play is
key in keeping it simple. You only have to deal with the
original videos. What good are MOOCs if the site / files go away
not much I’d say. For me I’d capture the MOOC video using a
screen utility or just shoot video of the replays using
a camcorder.

I use the app to keep all my emails, email addresses,
notes, URL favorites and previous google search strings.
Being that the app runs from a USB stick, I can take my data
with me. What use is the cloud when you have your info on
a USB stick.

Yup in 15 minutes I can share the majority of my important
info with anybody. My mega thread “nobody shares knowledge
better than this” goes unchallenged. I am by far the best at
sharing computer info; bar none.

This app will jog your memory

@ “Spectate Swamp” “Yup in 15 minutes I can share the majority of my important info with anybody.”

Bet you’d run out of what I judge important in 15 seconds! You can’t even organize words enough to convey a point here.

From your all of FIVE posts since 2009, I’m sure this explains your rambling: “Look at where the Marijuana issue is. It’s safer than Mothers Milk.” — Umm, no, drug-induced stupor causes loss of focus. For this topic (as if YOU are on topic: until looked at your apparently real profile was sure was spam), it definitely doesn’t improve learning.


Re: Re: Re: Re: Knowing next to nothing about pot is stupid

don’t you think its funny when you have no knowledge yourself, so you sprook on about what you “think” others peoples knowledge is. You tell use what “they think” but you don’t talk about what YOU think… !!! I wonder why ?

Is it just possible you don’t think, is that why you are here ? to be told what and how to think ? Seems like it.


Re: Re: having your knowledge randomly played back is great

what you need is the knowledge that information is not knowledge.

But if you had a decent education, you would have the knowledge and information to determine using your knowledge and is information and what is knowledge.

You can share information, but as information is not knowledge, then who cares.

Information is what you entered into a google search, knowledge if what you found out as a result of that search assuming you have the education to process that information and using your IQ turn it into knowledge and understanding… Understand ?
