Having recently read an article on our website about “parallel realities,” “the spiritual envelope of the Earth,” decided to present his view of this “vinaigrette.” This is just my opinion and it is by definition subjective. To all amateurs and “professionals” of mysticism, as well as “egregors”, “coordinator of the planet Earth”, and so on and so forth, I want to remind the following history. By the way, there is a much more effective method “to achieve enlightenment,” try opening the door of the refrigerator faster than the inside light comes on.
In the Renaissance, when the question “what is man?” Arose, what was in us from “God,” and what came from us? King Louis of France (I do not remember the number) conducted a simple experiment. I bought several (more than a dozen) perfectly healthy babies and put them in a guarded castle. By assigning to them servants who, on pain of death, were forbidden to talk and generally communicate with children in general. The goal of all this was simple: if man is God's creation (in the orthodox sense), then isolation will have no effect on the development of these children, and as a result they will grow quite normal. As a result, completely underdeveloped people grew up, or rather they could have been called people with a very big stretch, rather they looked like animals. No way they could not teach speech after the termination of the experiment. I do not intend to offend the feelings of believers, but any idea, even the best, can be brought to the point of absurdity.
For an individual, absolute value is time, and you can’t argue with that, but for the state? In my opinion, this is the intellectual potential of its people. So it turns out that education is the most important “technological” process of the state, its main function. No “breakthrough” or “breakthrough” will succeed if no one is able to read, and vice versa, if world science is concentrated in the country, this state cannot be an outsider. So we were the most reading people in the world, with the best education system, with advanced science. There were ...
About education, or rather about his view of it, and decided to write. In any case, consistency and a systematic approach are important. The now introduced "Bologna" system does not prepare smart and creative people, but consumers. The whole process of learning is reduced to stuffing young brains with a bunch of information, often unnecessary, and sometimes contradictory, creating a sort of “porridge”. Now there is a lot of terrorism, violence, drugs, moral deformity and other cases destroying the country. So after all, a holy place is never empty. Teach people to create, to realize themselves and all the above-mentioned “dirt” will become a thing of the past, perhaps a small percentage of “freaks” will remain, but these will be isolated cases.
The education system consists of several components: this includes pre-school education, a “school” program, out-of-school education, and the organization of teachers' work, and the identification of talented people. In general, the system itself should be organized in such a way that it becomes an honorable and advantageous to become a talented, creative citizen, and extremely unprofitable and contemptiously illiterate "vegetable." I will try to disclose in more detail my understanding of the foregoing.
The brain, like a muscle - requires training. And his ability to learn new things, unfortunately, is not straightforward in time. It is a well-known fact that if a child does not learn to speak before the 8-10 years, he will never speak. Therefore, training should begin in kindergarten. Moreover, the process of preschool education should take place in a playful way. In my opinion, the emphasis at the initial stage of education should be made on functional development. The main subjects of pre-school education: the organization of the memorization system, the ability to own both left and right hands, reading, drawing, games for the development of logic. For example, children are invited to present in their minds a large, beautiful one-story (as long as a one-story) building and call it “HOUSE OF KNOWLEDGE”. To facilitate this, there is a poster on the wall with a drawing of such a building. Next, mentally you need to open the doors and go inside, to focus the child’s attention on the cleanliness and order of the large, round hall. In the wall, near the entrance door, suggest “to create” doors with a large “ALFAVIT” inscription, opening which the trainee enters a bright, clean room, where the letter “A” stands on the shelf (for example). Ask "mentally" to take this letter in hand, twist it and wipe the "dust" into place. Set a home task: go before bedtime and play with a letter (letters, over time), wipe it (them) from dust into place. Over time, with the development of figurative thinking and memory, we suggest that children themselves create such rooms with a name for example: “Birthday”, “Favorite cartoon”, “Trip to grandmother”, etc. To accustom the child every night to “enter” his “HOUSE OF KNOWLEDGE” and restore order there. When the children are comfortable, offer to “create” a door labeled “Oblivion”, opening which you find yourself in a beautiful room, in the middle of which there is a deep well. Offer to submit any negative point, the event in the form of a stone and throw it into the well. Before entering the school, suggest to name the first floor “Kindergarten”. That is, to create a system for memorizing and retrieving images, which is the basis of knowledge. This system should be constantly developed both at school and at the institute.
Children are shown at the initial stage, a simple figure: a letter, a triangle, an asterisk, a ball. After that, this figure hides. The child needs to close his eyes and present this figure. Then draw it first with the right and then with the left hand. You can also develop all kinds of educational games for the right and left hands. As you know, the right hand is controlled by the left hemisphere, and the left - right. Accordingly, it is necessary to develop both hemispheres.
Reading is the most important skill, no video can compare with reading, because figurative thinking develops while reading, and video turns it off. It is necessary to read the child and ask to retell it. As the memorization system develops, syllables, words, and stories must be kept in the “House of Knowledge”. In our computer age, it is quite possible to organize some kind of "reading room" in the manner of tablet computers with speed reading training programs.
Drawing is also very important, because it teaches self-expression. You can draw on arbitrary themes, the only condition: to draw part of the picture with your right hand, and part of the left.
Games on the development of the logical apparatus are well known. For example, there are three nouns: Sun, tomato and cucumber. It is necessary to remove one “extra” and explain why it is “superfluous”. In this example, it could be a cucumber, the sun and a tomato are round, or the sun, a cucumber and a tomato are vegetables (or an extra tomato, why? Because I ate it). As you master the game, word sets can be complicated (4 and more words). Here is another example, three words are given. It is necessary to come up with as many sentences as possible containing these words. And there are a lot of such simple but very useful games, in the school they are replaced by mathematics.
The purpose of preschool education is to form a system of figurative thinking and memorization, the development of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, reading. That is, the creation of methods of knowledge of the world in a playful way, so that the learning process would bring joy, not boredom.
School is the most important period in life. It was at this time that the knowledge base, the basic skills of knowledge were laid. We are all different and our abilities are different. To someone it is easy, that one thing, to someone else. In Soviet times, there was an unofficial division of students in preparation: the most prepared children were enrolled in the “A” class, less in the “B”, even less in the “B” and so on. This is a good practice. If, for example, a “weak” student falls into the “strong” class, then he will hopelessly lag behind and generally lose interest in learning. After each year of study, it is necessary to conduct examinations (just do not get hung up on them) and sort the students into classes according to their results. If, for example, a child is lagging behind in 1-2 subjects, it is enough to tighten it with additional classes during the holidays (for example, 1 month of June), if the systematic lag should be transferred to the less capable class, he automatically goes into a more "advanced" class.
The school cycle itself, in my opinion, should be divided into “primary” school (1-4 class inclusive), “secondary” school (5-8 class inclusive), and “senior” (9-11 class).
In the “elementary” school, the program continues the development of figurative memory, mastering both hands equally, speed reading, drawing, but writing, math, speech development, work, music are added. Moreover, training figurative memory, possession of both hands is included in all subjects. At the end of the “elementary” school, the student must read at a decent speed, be fluent with both hands, be able to retell the proposed story with “his” words. The amount of knowledge in mathematics and other "serious" subjects must correspond to the "Soviet" level, if not deeper.
In the "secondary" school, the emphasis in training is on "core" subjects. This is primarily speed reading, algebra, geometry, Russian (plus the national language, if required), literature, history, physics, chemistry, biology, foreign language, geography, biology, drawing. In the "secondary" school, the task of mastering the right and left hands is also becoming more complicated - it is necessary to learn how to simultaneously write the same thing with both hands simultaneously.
In the “high school” classes will regroup according to professional characteristics. "Physical and mathematical" class, "chemical and biological" class, "humanitarian" class. If, for example, a student is fluent in mathematics and physics, and most importantly wants to develop in this direction, then he will be better off learning in a class with a physical and mathematical bias. If someone is better given languages, history, then accordingly he will develop more in a “humanitarian” class. In the "high" school, teenagers learn to wield two hands independently. This will teach to focus, to think more “volumetricly”. For example, a student with the right hand solves the problem, and with the left he writes, as dictated, a proof of the theorem. Or he writes an essay with his right hand, and with the left one he makes illustrations to the essay. The speed reading and development of the "House of Knowledge" is also moving to a higher level.
It is necessary to exclude “extra” disciplines from the school program, for example, my daughter at school studied the “OBZHD” subject - the basics of life safety. The program of this subject included, among other things, the study of human internal organs: what the lungs consist of (Trachea, bronchi, alveoli), pancreas, which cells produce insulin, etc. Why does the 10 summer child need this information? Ask her now, she will remember nothing. But mathematics is given in very poor volume. Mathematics in general should be the main subject, both in the "primary" and in the "secondary" and "higher" schools.
At the time of my childhood, there were the stations of "young technicians", the magazines "Technique of Youth", "Young Technician", the correspondence school of Radio Electronics, the correspondence course of Physics and Mathematics. In schools there were circles Mathematical, Physical, Chemical, Literary. Why not revive it? Now computerization provides an opportunity to raise out-of-school education to a new height. It is necessary to create a single scientific database, where all materials necessary for training, additional materials, as well as advanced scientific works will be collected. All information should be strictly structured and publicly available.
Organization of the learning process
Any inert system is doomed. Therefore, the education system should be a dynamic, developing object. It should be an element of competition among the teaching staff. Each teacher can be assigned a certain rating, moreover, the same rating should be given to the school. Depending on the results of the mandatory annual examinations, calculate the ratings and, depending on the score, index the salaries of the teachers and the school administration. To prevent collusion, students must take examinations from another school. And whatever the training may be reduced to knowing the tickets (or tests), the latter must not be known in advance and each class must be equipped with a video camera. All video material of each lesson should be collected in the regional commission and selectively controlled by it.
Identification of gifted citizens and promotion of advanced ideas in the industry.
By itself, the education system divorced from industry will not bring anything good for the country. Most of the most talented and successful scientists simply move to the west and will work for the benefit of someone else's economy. There is only one way out - to create within all countries a system for identifying talented people and introducing their ideas into production. And here it is not necessary to invent anything. We have a RAS - Russian Academy of Sciences, and so it should be connected to solve this problem. Each regional department of the Russian Academy of Sciences must maintain an Internet resource where, after a thorough examination, articles that can be sent by mail to any citizen of the country, from schoolchildren to pensioner, should be published. During the year, a number of the most promising articles are collected in each regional department of the RAS, which are sent to the central committee of the RAS. Of the entire mass of submitted articles, those that are of the greatest interest to the country are approved. Further funding of the authors to continue the research work. Someone is just a simple grant to continue the theoretical work on their topic, and to whom it is possible to build a scientific center, if its idea is so promising. When accepting an article for consideration, copyright compliance and patent registration are guaranteed. It is quite easy to do this, just before sending your work you need to register and get a digital signature. For example, a young researcher became interested in a breakthrough theory, he writes an article with a scientific substantiation of his idea and publishes (registers) it, at the same time protecting his rights and receiving grants. But in addition to this, the state has the opportunity to assess the potential of this scientific work, and if it deserves that, to carry out targeted financing of its work.
Empires are created in the minds and hearts, or rather people consolidate a common value system, a common mental language. What can be the most effective means of creating it? Creativity and creation, is it not God's spark in each of us? There are no such obstacles that human thought can not overcome, multiplied by the desire for self-expression. In the modern, fast-paced world, knowledge itself is no longer so important, the more important is the ability to master the new, learns the new, the advanced. Is this the most important strategic potential of the state, its main weapon? The answer, in my opinion, is obvious.
In conclusion, I propose a joke about a conversation in "different" languages.
Little Johnny decided to walk the last two lessons. Running out of school, he saw his grandmother, who stopped him and asked:
- Son, how to find the area of Ilyich?
-Babul, I am not very good at math, but it seems that I need to multiply the length of Ilyich by the width of Ilyich .... - Vovochka answered, scratching his head.
