Soul Spelunker: Images Are Prior To Experience

Soul Spelunker: Images Are Prior To Experience | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

Prior to our perceiving anything in this world, there are images that create our reality. Jung said, "The psyche creates reality every day." Our consciousness is totally dependent upon this vast storehouse of images we call Soul. Soul is Image and Image is Soul. The only way we experience anything in this world is because of our ability to imagine. We imagine and create constantly. Our consciousness would not exist without images. Images are the irreducible elements inherent in all animatter. At bottom, all is Image.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 13, 2013 3:54 PM

I don't think we are, but that is not a problem. The question is "do teachers have the skills, the adaptability, and the learning aptitude?" We cannot fully imagine the next wave or generation of technology.

Numbers measure a moment in time or place. Frequently, they are used to support a particular arguement. We need to use numbers differently and recognize their limts.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 14, 2013 6:03 AM

Larry Cuban presents a view of the growing conversation that needs to be considered. Are we mindful in our practice. Teaching, he points out, is different than information delivery which can be done digitally. Teaching and learning are not always the opposites of each other. Etienne Wenger in his work on communities of practice makes this distinction. Learning can happen without teaching, but there will be many times the human component is essential.

Lance Weihmuller's curator insight, February 14, 2013 7:48 AM

Strong point that needs to be taken up more by other voices, both advocates and skeptics:


"Conflating MOOCs with instructional methods misleads professors, students, and the public about what teachers teach and what students learn."

Ivon Prefontaine's comment, February 15, 2013 4:02 PM
Agreed. Lance the more voices we have that offer sound views makes the conversation more effective.

Tree Sitting – A Rebuttal to Clay Shirky

Tree Sitting – A Rebuttal to Clay Shirky | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

Clay Shirky observed at the Awl last week that he and I disagree over whether the trend toward MOOCs in higher education is reversible—he says no, and he says that I say yes—and I suppose he’s right, so far as that goes. But I don’t think that goes very far.There were a few cheap shots about “teamsters in tweed” that were worth noting. A lazy trope that depends on the belief that unions are essentially illegitimate, selfish, and retrograde, it’s a sly dig that lets him insinuate without directly asserting that anti-MOOC academics are self-interested and conservative luddites, that we are somehow positioning our own self-interest in opposition to the deep public spirit of Silicon Valley. It also passes along the insinuation that academics are powerfully unionized, which is far from the truth; as Jonathan Rees points out, would that we were more like teamsters.

 

But I’d just like to note the cheapness of that critique before moving on: as if self-interest is some unique academic perversion, as if Shirky himself lacks bread and a knowledge of which side it is buttered on, and—most importantly—as if the drive to make money off of students isn’t the only reason Silicon Valley is getting on the MOOC bandwagon. Because, of course, this was my original critique of Shirky’s language of “we educators”: he rhetorically inhabits that position in order to pooh-pooh its legitimacy as an opinion. He signs up for team education in order to run up the white flag on our behalf. Thanks, but, please, no thanks.

A really daoist response in some ways. The notion that the "useless" tree is quite useful in the overall and the long term, serving a purpose in the rhizomatic interconnection of cycles.
