Preface

To balance the, at times, technically esoteric nature of this paper I’ve included some well-grounded quotations throughout, which perhaps convey the bulk of what I have to say as Robert Fulghum does or emphasize some aspect of the whole.

Introduction

From the time the sperm cell first meets the egg they are no longer recognizable as individual cells, everything changes from then on. Through language codes connections are made and regenerational cycles proceed. Nourishment of the organism allows the natural child’s compass of values to develop its gifts toward growth opportunities beneficial in the struggle of the human community. This is a study of the exchange of research information through an educational dissemination process that develops the stimulus-organism-response capacity for global improvement.

Life is like playing a violin in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
Samuel Butler (1835-1902) (Byrne, 11)

Radical and fundamental changes in the educational processes of diverse learning communities in the information age are necessary to meet the challenges for increasing the quality of our continued survival. Specialized technologies and a multitude of social movements in today’s world make the work of comprehension and understanding a lifelong challenge. Opportunities to release previously abstruse databases of information signal possibilities that have only been imagined to increase our responsive ability. Specialized areas currently identified as offering the greatest economic growth potential are microelectronics, biotechnology, new materials technology, civil aviation, machining/robotics, computers and software. Social technologies will play an important role in facilitating future achievements in human knowledge. Democratic principles and freedoms have spread to larger geographic portions of the world and human civil rights movements have lead to the spread of a greatersense of appreciation for the cultural richness of diverse populations. For the first time, through various media and interactive teleconferencing remote inhabitants from all corners of the earth now have a window to the world through communications technology in their natural environment. Further characterization of the elements of a preferred educational future may be developed towards a rewarding creative discipline.

Most of what I really need to know about how to live
and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten.
Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain,
but there in the sandpile at Sunday school. These are the
things I learned:

Share everything.
Play fair.
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Flush.
Warm cookies and cold milk are food for you.
Live a balanced life--learn some and think some and
draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic,
hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.

Robert Fulghum
1988

Theory and Practice

The efficacy of educational theories leading to sound action and judgment in a high-change society is the matter to be deliberated in this theory and practice section. Traditional education is generally concerned with the dissemination of information. In a slightly different approach, I would like to discuss developing stable structures which can gather the necessary components for learning and facilitate interactions which produce learning as an area for critical focus in the educational process. I believe the crystallization of these catalysts is a key central to producing the transformative changes that can be digested throughout a learning community resulting in high achievement of performance-, outcome- or competence-based assessment criteria. And that without the catalytic matrix crystal structure possessing patterns of attractive energy forces much of the information disseminated simply bounces off of the recipients producing no transformative change.

An example found in physical nature might serve to illustrate the process and its potential. In the atmosphere nitrogen dioxide (a toxic gas) will reduce to nitrogen and water through a relatively slow and complex process of conversion reactions with a rate of conversion in the area of say 0.1% change. Primarily, the components for the reaction bounce off of each other and no change occurs. Even the small change is largely due to the effect of catalysts naturally present in the atmosphere. However, a sand type material can be designed with finely dispersed metals and placed in a controlled process to gather ammonia and nitrogen dioxide on surface sites and with heat applied facilitate interactions leading to transformative conversion reactions at an accelerated rate of greater than 98%Cproducing innocuous nitrogen and water. For those unfamiliar with the specialized area of industrial catalysis, note that catalytic processes are involved in manufacturing processes whose production represents 30% the United States gross national product.

It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
Howard Ruff (Byrne, 110)

A second example for the organization of learning, demonstrating the success of specific purpose design characterized by substantial performance gain is also found somewhere between the sun and the deep blue sea. The computer chip is made with primarily refined sand in a multilevel metallization layering process to produce semiconductors and plasma etched integrated circuits in clean environments. Similarly, photonic crystals, conductive polymers and protein-based memory blocks have been developed by scientists with patterns of electronic potentials to store and retrieve information and images. The success of these technologies, as in catalysis, is based on the patterns of molecular electronic attractive forces created under proper conditions. Biologically, our bodies use photocatalysis, enzymatic catalysis and homogeneous chelation chemistry together with neurological transmissions to develop its learning systems. The practice of productively influencing the nature of biopsychosocial and theological exchange as patterns of change agents to incarnate peak performance rests on the development of educational catalysts that engage the organism. Designing stable catalytic supporting structures which draw essential information and motivational forces together to produce transformative learning communities (TLC’s) could substantially aid in global development and evolution.

Any ordinary man can…surround himself with two thousand books… and thenceforward have at least one place in the world in which it is possible to be happy.
Augustine Birrell (1850-1933) (Byrne, 50)

Culture

All education springs from some image of the future. If the image of the future held by a society is greatly inaccurate, its education system will betray its youth (Toffler, 1). The child from conception has a healthy appetite, soaking in all that is around, perhaps learning 50% of all that they will ever know in their first three years of life. The problem is securing the shape of formation processes in the human community, mastering the unintended, good and bad, consequences of cultural learning (Callaway). Much learning is absorbed through cultural symbols. This type of Silent Language along with time and space are powerful factors in the learning experience. Two-hundred-seventy-two different languages are spoken in the United States. The opportunities now present for cultural communication, exchange and the rewriting of cultural scripts gives us the ability to more rapidly invent and develop the future. Our history of development is largely one of oppressed groups being denied their stories (Alicea, 50). The job here is to challenge the family, government and economic systems with these rough grains of sand towards a fuller realization of justice, to polish these institutional structures to produce substantive change in our vision of an equitable future.

Some things have to be believed to be seen.
Ralph Hodgson (Byrne, 125)

Dialogue

This is the subject of sonocatalysis, including tonal qualities and degrees of resonance created, opening and clearing channels of exchange. The development of transformative learning requires a great deal of testing. A constant checking of theory in practice. How are you?, seems an important question as we learn well. Interacting in a reciprocal process of defining and developing cultural structures where we can interact freely in challenging discourse to create, a wide, fellow feeling with all that is human (Gilligan, 130) seems like the right thing to do. Purposeful conversations within rules designed to increase awareness and full participation of disparate individuals and groups seems essential to our growth and well-being. Dialogue is part of the process of overcoming denial, moving through negotiation, making decisions leading to action and following through with continued practice. The resulting formation of adaptive habits and shaping of values centered within the scope of conceptual knowledge and beliefs consistent with the laws of nature is based on this contacting the boundaries of learning. A way of meeting the parallel processing neural semantic hierarchies of the organism. A tremendous dignity can be found and integrity built through the dynamic relational posture offered through dialogue. Addressing the changing boundaries in applying the science of education and meeting progressively growing global responsibilities will require keeping in touch through new dialogue. Productive interactive dialogue helps establish reticular formation, cultural relationships, the bonding networks of energy that provide the adhesive, cohesive and flow properties capable of producing a beneficial coherency from scattered particles, if we listen carefully.

You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
Mark Twain (1835-1910) (Byrne, 384)

Vicissitudes

Perhaps sixty percent of cognitive neurological ability is heritable. From this we develop talents along the lines of linguistic, musical, logical-mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, intrapersonal and interpersonal skills of problem solving (Herrnstein,18 & 23). Regular change or the potential for finding or creating problems, laying the groundwork for the acquisition of new knowledge (Herrnstein, 18). Temperament and character for meeting change with new learning for the good that can be produced through competent implementation. A matter of being tickled and tickling.

Neglect of the change/response process raises the need for radical and fundamental approaches to change. to move away from the acute care needs to moderate restorative methods. Conservative in nature, applying the minimum treatment necessary on a consistent sustainable basis. Environment? design of the learning spaces. Privatization strategies for education are proposed as competitive systems helping to develop more functional systems. focusing on nutritional, emotional, social and biochemical processes serves as common ground for studies which can address learning and education effects for all groups.

Gifted

I’m suggesting that we build at all levels of the socioeconomic spectrum rather than choosing to expend disproportionate amounts of resources of one group or another. That programs to meet the diverse needs of a multitude of cross-cultural groups will have greatest overall benefit.

The focus is to develop every organism for improvement. I am suggesting that we both build on the best available talent and the least developed talents. That overall sustainable improvement depends on the participation of all including autistic, turette, mental disabled, Engaging the individual organism not for self-sufficiency but towards self-governing interdependence.

Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live unreflectively and begins to devote himself to his life with reverence in order to raise it to its true value. To affirm life is to deepen, to make more inward, and to exalt the will to live.

Albert Schweitzer (Roger, 278)

Digestion

Purified water, fruits, vegetables and starches are good foods to eat to aid the digestive system. They supply vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutrients for manufacturing amino acids, peptides, lipids and provide support for other biological functions. Agricultural industry technology has removed us from proximity to organic garden variety foods, returning to more intimate contact with natural foods is recommended.

System

Love and stress, the chemical pathways are identical. Nanosystems. Evidence surrounding theoretical and practical issues will be examined to help find some guidance in overcoming the barriers and obstacles to aligning structures and systems with co-missioning strategies to match the rhythms and the streams of the realities in our cultural mosaic within fresh channels of transmission. Components of social, scientific and technological change will be explored in relation to the educational system. What do the theories presented mean in the context of intra personal, interpersonal, managerial and organizational roles? A utopian goal would be to resolve a complete vision of the organization for aligning structures and streams to achieve a pervading global sense of scholarship. A system that would provide for our moral, intellectual and physical well being. The utopian goal is a useful tool for identifying, developing and acquiring the required skills and performance standards desirable regarding the pursuit of such an effort.

Accelerated Learning

Plasma, electrically charged fluid particles found in solar wind and cold fusion condensed matter physics form a plasma cloud responsible for the properties of superconductivity and superfluidity. In this substate of gas coherently matched atoms sharing common quantum-mechanical wave function and losing their individual identities in this intimate merging. Likewise, collectivized individuals may experience a similar superlearning state in the quantum learning zone. From a flashlight to a laser beam. (faster than the speed of light) The nuclei of ideas in close proximity to each other interacting with nonlocal forces achieves an alignment and synergy of learning force or coherent integrity. Bursts of hunger spurts of evolution. 15% of top SAT’s were home schooled. Social capital rules, networks and trust. (Robert Putnam) The more rapidly we can invent and develop the future the better off we are. While research journal contain the controlled accurate, reliable, sci. method type research resultsThese are exiting times for those who are able to find an environment of magic (the magic being those productive phenomenon that have not been explained by science yet) and love of learning for themselves and in others. Environment of magic and love of learning for themselves and in others-Increasingly, a just in time type of learning is needed in often complex, mysterious and obscure areas.The goal is to bring a lifelong adaptive learning process to the forefront of daily practice within the human community. In producing a productive flow we serve in providing a system for the planning and securing of the quality of our continued collective future. Delivering to the best of our ability a flexible design capable of accommodating contingencies, promoting inspired innovation and taking advantage of the resourcefulness of the human organism is a worthy and rewarding challenge.

Knowledge in its cumulative state overlaps. Einstein predicted a similar state of condensed matter which was recently observed where individual atoms overlap in a cloud with properties capable of carrying out the processes of superconductivity and superfluidity. A similar state of overlapping boundaries of a condensed collectivized existence allows for rapid exchange

capabilities and superlearning.

The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the causes of disease.
Thomas Edison (Haas, 2)

Building Bridges

Silas Purnell, Director of Educational Services for Ada S. McKinley Community Services presented "Educating Minority-Disadvantaged Youth: From Inner City Neighborhoods to College Campuses; How To Get Them There From Here" at the 1995 Public Affairs Award Meeting of the Chicago Section American Chemical Society on March 30. Si is a commanding speaker with a self-effacing and humorous style and an inspiring message. He has been carrying out his mission over a period of thirty years and his achievements are represented in what is now the largest college placement service in the U.S. Over 40,000 students have been placed in colleges and universities throughout the country with a substantial number of these students completing their degrees and becoming successful in their chosen fields (Chicago Chemical Bulletin 2). Mr. Purnell suggests that the level of preparation of some students is compensated for by their level of desperation. To illustrate, he recalls his experience in seeing a student with a composite ACT score of 4 graduate on-time in four years with the help of Project 500 which allows for such entrance exceptions. While admitting that aspiration must be reconciled with preparation he again gives similar examples of students with GPA’s of 0.39 and 0.14 who both got Big 10 degrees with the help of Ada S. McKinley programs. These efforts extend to graduate school as well. Without providing their names (to protect their professional status), he notes two students who had a best college GPA of 2.4, of which one is now a dentist and the other a surgeon, to emphasize that we must not teach fear.

Their program incorporates the following eight functions. First, the identification of any kind of student who wants to go to school. If they have a H.S. diploma, a GED or are 19 years of age they are eligible. Second, a recruitment process helping students who will help themselves. They will go anywhere in this pursuit, including pool halls or wherever the kids might hang out. An assessment procedure involving listening and talking with students about what it is they want to do is carried out. Motivation is taken into account and provided. 7-10 day trips visiting colleges are furnished without expense to the student. This is done in the hope of demonstrating that there is something out there for them. Specialized information on institutions, who’s who and financial aid is dispensed along with personalized stories, philosophies and facts designed to overcome the stereotypes, myths and obstacles perceived by the students. Then follow-up, advocacy, mentorship and efforts at trying to change the system round out the program.

Silas offers, if we can help you, if you know a kid who wants to go to school - never-mind the GPA - send him to us. Mr. Purnell remains, despite offers to relocate, in his basement office at 2961 S. Dearborn - where the students are (Purnell).

The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our pour power to add or detract.
Abraham Lincoln (1863, Gettysburg Address)

Conclusions

The quality design, purpose, transmission and application of these messages is key to our continued success. Pragmatic discussion describing these issues around defined theories, forming the elements, components and interaction forces involved to enrich appreciation of and insight into paths increasing integrating conversions within refined textural framework areas designed to face fresh challenges will be set in place--with the hope of providing some of the possibilities, probabilities and preferred mechanisms with which to build a vision of the future.

Phase-transfer catalysis or elementary-to-middle, middle-to-high, high-to-industry/vocational/community/college/university, apprenticeships, internships and other school-work programs

The essence of our effort to see that every child has a chance must be to assure each an equal opportunity, not to become equal, but to become different—to realize whatever unique potential of body, mind and spirit he or she possesses.
John Fischer (Roger, i)

Questions

This raises some questions. What implications does this have for the philosophies, concepts and design of education? What is the best of our ability? How will the channels of knowledge transmission be developed? Who are the participants in this process? What are their roles as educators, instructors, trainers, teachers, students, scholars, mentors and communicators in the transmission process. How will their needs, abilities, contributions, applications, performance, development, and progress be supported, monitored, assessed and evaluated? Why pursue such a course of investigation? What advantages or benefits might we hope to actualize?
