LEARNING RECORDS

Message 8722:

Q:Why we made boxes?

A: We made the boxes in order to learn about pattern recognition. Pattern reecognition allows for simple learning of difficult tasks.

Q:Did I follow directions to the T?

A: NO, I didn't! I just followed the pattern of making little squares throughout the paper, which was done through pattern recognition.

Q:How long does it take me to make a box!

A: Through the weeks I have made around 20 boxes all together. So I've gotten to be quite good, and fast!

Q: How does this deal with visual sociology?

A: In regards of the squares being rows of chairs, the center of the paper would be the center of attention (the professor) the boxes around it would be the students, surounding the professor allowing for perfect learning cpnditions!

*Last week I baby sat my niece and nephew. I showed them how to make the boxes. They caught on very quickly, and they enjoyed it, because they were able to complete a difficult thing fairly easily.

Good summary and explanation, Robert. And I'm delighted that you got to share this with your niece and nephew. Sharing what you've learned is the essence of learning and community responsibility.

Message 8088:

I strongly agree with Jeanne on the topic on "No correct interpretations". Each and every one of us will believe in things that best fits our own personal "Mythos & Logos". In life, we are blessed with the gift of "FREE WILL"! This gift allows us to draw our own conclusions, believe in what we want to believe, and interpret things in a way that makes sense to us. Just because someone says one thing is the best way, it doesn't mean that it is able to be generalized. It may be the best way for that person, but may not neccessarily be the best way for another person. Without "FREE WILL", we all would be robots, and would just be another mechanism of the system. So thank GOd, Budda, Jesus, Sun, Moon, Stars, or whomever you pray to, that we are able to interpret things differently, allowing us to agree to disagree!

Well put, Robert. Jonathan Lear would be proud of your rejection of the "arrogance of knowingness."

Message 6757:

When I first moved here to california for college, one could say that I was in a state of culture shock. I was born and raised in Hawaii(HI.), where the culture and life style is very different than it is here in CA. In HI. people never asked the question "So, what ethnicity are you?" That information wasn't important. I was never asked that question back home, only for the reason that the majority of people living in HI. have very mixed ethnicities. Take me for example: My father is Puerto Rican, Irish, and French, and my mother is Filipino, Chinese, Spanish, and in HI. a mixture of this sort is absolutley normal!While when I was first presented with this question here, I told them all my ethnicities, their reply was "Why can't you just tell me your main ethnicity?" It seemed like they needed that information to categorize me. Here in California it seems so important for another person to know what ethnicity a person is. Does it really matter? What difference does it make? To me ethnicity is just another type of "LABEL", don't get me wrong our background does make us who we are, but one shouldn't be judged by it! Would a person like another person less if they were a certain ethnicity? I sure hope not! Think about this. In the near future, the percentage of "pure ethnicity" will drop dramatically! Many families will be mixed! (Well maybe except for ETHNOCENTRIC people.) So when this happens, do you think that we still be asking this question of ethnicity?

Very well put, Robert. I'm a mongrel, too. So I agree with you. And I think you are right that one day soon it won't matter to any of us, at least I hope so.
