A Higher Education
Now that we've rearranged the learning process to flow more effectively, we can take a look at that actual information being absorbed by the student. Almost everything taught in schools these days are facts: historical, mathematical, scientific, cultural, global and local facts retained in our brain that might help us deal with the world around us. The majority of these facts lay unused in the deep recesses of our minds, and end up wasting valuable space. The few that we do use show the world that we are capable, intelligent human beings who can make a better living now that we "know" more.
But there is much more to learn out of life. Schools save this "special" learning for when the student finally leaves the classroom, where they begin interacting with others and experiencing feelings of love, fear, and all the shades in between. Not many teachers can truly help the student here. "That's the student's problem…a classroom is for learning, and that stuff takes away from the learning process." But we know that is not the case, as there is NO learning taking place without experience and feeling.
A new, higher education teaches us the basics…what many of us failed to pick up in Kindergarten. This education is centered around awareness and experience, and teaches us about the lesser known parts of ourselves and the world around us. Teachers could lead us through a whole new feeling of connectedness in the class of Silence, or help us absorb new things by strengthening our ability to flow in the class of Learning. New strengths and skills can now be available to us.
Awakened plans to bring this higher education into our system, starting with courses on the Web known as Awakened Education. Courses will have one or more guides available to help lead the student when necessary. The courses will be highly interactive and experiential, with abundant visual stimulation to ease the learning process. These courses can eventually translate to full-service courses offered at nationwide and even worldwide schools.
Awakened Education is now in production, and will be available soon by accessing Awakened.org.
