-Dr. Ronald Glasberg.has just such a touch and has been recognized for it. Almost every year at the University of Calgary.(ucalgary.ca).he is nominated for the teaching award. 

He says."I never taught traditionally, but I realized I was critical of it even when I was in grade one. In public school I would watch the teachers and how they taught. I could see they were not getting their message across, see when people were being bored. I always wanted to be a teacher."

Dr. Glasberg goes on to say that to be effective it is important to place one's self in the student's shoes, considering how they look at what is being presented. He is also concerned about what a teacher may be trying to accomplish:."Fulfil a curriculum requirement or do they want to change something."

Dr. Glasberg says."All teaching should be done to bring the students out of themselves, educate them. That's what education originally meant.".And this involves thinking, objective.analysis of information, as opposed to just instruction, which absolves a student of important involvement in critical thinking processes.

Engaging critical thinking processes including the 5 W's.(who, what, when, where, why and how).and logic, are more effective than just lecturing on what to think about and what to repeat and remember. 

One should know how to think well and wisely, so decisions important to life can be handled when circumstances necessitate adjustments be made.

To bring out the specialness of each individual is Dr. Glasberg's effective thrust in his teaching. He goes on to say a great teacher is one who uses what knowledge or understanding the student possesses and draws that forward. The goal was to make the student more of an active participant in education.

"The real trick is to take risks, to try to link up where the students are at that time.".says Glasberg.

Glasberg emphasizes critical thinking and dislikes the traditional method of memorization. 

His aim is for students to really learn and enjoy the world of ideas. Dr. Glasberg is concerned that knowledge be not just taught, but presented in a way which is both interesting and exciting leading to heartfelt acceptance. 

Many kids want to rush at life; anxious to leave school and get living life. They become anxious to try this and that. This results in what they become. Better to become the best one can be through proper education. A good education.(thanks to good educators).can lead one into what he or she can see should be done in life according to what one has become, what one has an affinity toward, that is, what one has enought interest to develop a rapport with, because we only really get good at those things we love. 

We become who and what we identify with. Thus the need for quality education first. Once one understands himself better.(personality, capabilities, etc.), it is easier to decide what to do in life. Education should center around emotions as much as it does around facts and figures. Consciousness based education.(type 'consciousness based education' into YouTube or 'Maharishi University' into Google).is effective in accomplishing this.

But there are those who are opposite to the high standards mankind needs to aspire to. Charlotte Iserbyt, former chief of all education in the U.S.A. reveals the evil plot to dumb down humankind. 

-effective teaching:.It is pretty hard, if not impossible to convince the kids that the teacher shortage is a calamity!

"I never let schooling interfere with my education." ...Mark Twain

"The very nature of education causes brain imbalance." ...Dr. John Hagelin. Dr. Hagelin on education.(search 'global solutions' at globalcountry.org).

If the cost of a college education continues to snowball, a person can soon make a profit by remaining ignorant!

Never take a history class. Most of what is taught wasn't worth doing in the first place and was recorded inaccurately and with bias. Learn history on your own research.

Isn't it strange that one has to send their children to a Christian school in order for them to learn the fine character qualities of mercy and kindness. No one else carries the option.

The cuts in spending on education will be made up partly by an increase in prison and reformatory spending!

Education should include the knowledge of what to do with it! Like duh! What good are facts without actions benefiting the world? What is needed is teaching those being educated just how to control facts properly and away from destructive patterns. This obviously is not being done. The educational system has most miserably failed. 

Public schools mostly stay away from character.ethics like it was planned to turn out kids with no good character at all. It's a time honored adage that 'a person becomes one with what he chooses to think' and choices of what to think are provided by environment. In too many schools students are forced under threat of failing grades to imbibe garbage information without analytic questioning.

Proper education is education that exposes human awareness to the totality of knowledge and this comes through meditation.

The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that our aim is too low and we reach it! Modern education provides for our aim to be what world controllers want.

Education today focuses the attention increasingly upon specialized concerns, thereby limiting expansionability necessary to fully develop the brain. Generally and apart from some special schools and some special adept teachers, children are taught what to learn and not so much about how to learn. This spells more of indoctrination than education; more of 'rubber stamping' the person for compliance, than an educing.

The brain plays out the thoughts of the mind upon the body and its life experiences.

Education becomes indoctrination by advancing information on only one side of an issue. Why then do governments allow peaceful spiritual beliefs such as the Christian, Jewish and many of Eastern religions not to be taught and practiced in schools, when they go so far in producing fine members of society? It's almost as if would be world controllers want ignorant slave workers. 

Teaching only one side of an issue is more of brainwashing than education, so it's garbage. We have garbage food going into kids bodies, why not garbage information? What other ways can you think to produce tractable slaves? Better to have them limited in thinking for the industries of the world? One would think so, as adding fluoride to drinking water contributes to making people more tractable.

Consider third world countries. Why is not enough money been available after all these years? Why is there never enough for all? It's an abundant universe. So, it has got to be man and his manipulation for selfishness based on his fears of losing, of going backward, etc., motivating him to hold others down so he can step on them to get himself a little higher, a little larger in life:.Romans 1:18.

The educator / learner's relationship must proceed beyond information embracing emotional encouragement.

In meditation we get to know that oneness from which all else is known, that one master formula governing the entire universe, and what is that?

Proper education would lead one to see that we are like branches of a tree, like facets of a diamond, the diamond being the intelligent energy of the universe supporting all things. We see that each of us is a facet, a fractal as it were, a pattern component in the unity of all things. Here we see that all other created things including even the so-called.four forces, including all the stars, all the galaxies, all the air, all everything we can think and know of, are facets of this same diamond. Think of it like a flower. The flower is all there is. The petals are us, as much of the flower as is any of it.

Proper education would include meditation. Here human awareness is exposed to the totality of knowledge available within, that which all comes from the diamond, is the diamond as it shines from each facet. Here at the core of everything, transcendence of all natural law occurs and we can do things regarded by those of ordinary consciousness as phenomenons. One comes into knowing that by which everything else is known.

Love is all encompassing. Love is of higher consciousness levels. Schools have mostly students and teachers not deep into understanding of higher levels of brain functioning. They are reciprocally.restrained from surging forth away from low consciousness levels. That is changing. How?

Education developers and controllers who exclude God under the excuse of religion, do not understand the difference between truth.(information about the Great Engineer who created the universe to be in such perfect balance, acts of His plan for all mankind, data on His creating and creation).and the misinformation that religion and the ego level areas of society all too often provide. Ego levels of society include the corporate system for the most, including media and other institutions of affect upon those at the ego level of existence. Ego institutions are marked by lack of higher consciousness qualities.

It is herein that education and religion share the result of their misguided approaches. The result proves the system is failing people; just look at their lives of little time, lots of divorce, alcoholism, prescriptions dependency, frustration, hearts still awaiting a vibrant interesting and exciting life filled with what is fun, wayward children, etc.

In modern education, technique is learned and so graduates enter into careers lacking fundamentals of a way of life involving highly developed intuition; an intuition so necessary to lead them into the wisdom required to safely navigate the road of life.

But to have this intuition, this burning desire to see what wisdom lies within each circumstance encountered, is to live with the fire Michio Kushi.(kushiinstitute.com).calls."the quiet courage that melts everything away with its slow steady force.".It is from here that life unfolds for each of us.

Sadly, myopic education designers are really contributing to information entropy.(the amount of information available to do useful work consistently decreases), mostly fueled by confusion, thus establishing a socialistic equilibrium comprising reduced initiative.

In subtle ways many educators 'say no' to students. When information is offset with emotional resistance to it, you have entropy.

In many ways an 'out of tune' educator can destroy. Ways can be observed by tracing back from the result exemplified in individual students' perceptions toward life. And sadly some educators do not even seem to care what a student's perceptions may involve. Out of tune in the sense one may have no intuition.

Intuition is developed through deeply caring for others; by determining that your constantly improving best will be used to improve those willing to absorb efforts expended to improve others. With this high desire, an educator can easily sense both those inclined to benefit from his work and those not so disposed.

Once maximum 'educational entropy' has been reached, a severe impediment resides in an individual.(emotions have been negatively programmed).hampering further acquisition of information, i.e., he does not want to learn, as he sees little personal use for the information. Sadly, only the strong, but not necessarily the most intelligent, survive. 

Educators excluding the Creator under the excuse of religion and instead favoring the exposition of evolutionary tenets such as 'random processes' contribute to this 'educational/informational entropy', as random processes do not produce information, but rather, distort knowledge. Why?

Confusion hinders efforts to accomplish. Couple this with the lack of discipline many students bring with them to class.(poor upbringing), and inefficient learning habits, and we find that mostly the strong survive, with sadly, the most intelligent often relegated to mediocrity. Einstein was a good example of this, his parents being told he was mentally deficient, and perhaps should leave school. His own particular vision was never brought out in his early years, as it was not even noticed.

Effective teaching of children and students by parents and teachers involves focusing minds on where students will spend most of their lives, the future! Education is enjoyable and learning is easier for those with a clear concept of their place in the future. If education is going to be transformative it must actively engage the learner. 
   Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no vision, the people perish....."

From: TED, a website of 'ideas worth spreading'. What TED celebrates is the gift of the human imagination with engaging videos such as this one:.Dr. Sir Ken Robinson's video in Monterey, California.(type 'sir ken robinson' into ted.com and select his first video by date), a most engaging, funny and very interesting video on how we.(especially education).are negatively affecting our children. Here, once a year, 100 people with helpful 'ideas worth spreading' gather..The 'guts' of the video is below.or click on the link to see the video:

Dr. Sir Ken Robinson's son James was in the nativity play at his school getting the part of Joseph, the bit where the three kings come in.."They come in bearing gifts and they bring gold, frankincense and myrhh. This really happened: We were sitting there and we thought they just went out of sequence. The three boys came in, little 4-year-olds with tea towels on their heads and they put these boxes down and the first boy said "I bring you gold". The second boy said "I bring you myrhh". And the third boy said "Frank sent this".

What these things have in common is that kids will take a chance. If they don't know, they'll have a go. Am I right? They're not frightened of being wrong.

Unfortunately, education all to often dampens this.

Dr. Sir Ken:."I heard a great story recently, I love telling it, of a little girl who was in a drawing lesson, she was 6 and she was at the back, drawing and the teacher said this little girl hardly paid attention and in this drawing lesson she did. The teacher was fascinated and she went over to her and she said, "What are you drawing?" and the girl said "I'm drawing a picture of God." And the teacher said, "But nobody knows what God looks like." And the girl said "They will in a minute."

"What we do know is, if you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original. And by the time they get to be adults, most kids have lost that capacity. They have become frightened of being wrong. And we run our companies like this, by the way, we stigmatize mistakes. And we're now running national education systems where mistakes are the worst thing you can make. And the result is, we are educating people out of their creative capacities. And by the time they get to be adults, most kids have lost that capacity. They have become frightened of being wrong.

"Picasso once said this, he said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up. I believe this passionately, that we don't grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we get educated out of it. So why is this? You don't think of Shakespeare being a child, do you? Shakespeare being 7? I never thought of it. I mean, he was 7 at some point; he was in somebody's English class, wasn't he?

"When you travel around the world: Every education system on Earth has the same heirarchy of subjects. Every one,. Doesn't matter where you go, you'd think it would be otherwise, but it isn't. At the top are mathematics and languages, then the humanities and the bottom are the arts. Everywhere on Earth.

"As children grow up we start to educate them progressively from the waist up. And then we focus on their heads. And slightly to one side.

"Now our education system is predicated on the idea of academic ability. And there's a reason. The whole system was invented round the world when there were no public systems of education, really before the 19th century. They all came into being to meet the needs of industrialism.

"So the hierarchy is rooted on two ideas: Number one, that the most useful subjects for work are at the top. So you were probably steered benignly away from things at school when you were a kid, things you liked, on the grounds that you would never get a job doing that. Is that right? Don't do music, you're not going to be a musician; don't do art, you're not going to be an artist. Benign advice which is now, profoundly mistaken. The whole world is engulfed in a revolution.

"And the second is, academic ability, which has really come to dominate our view of intelligence because the universities designed the system in their image. If you think of it, the whole system of public education around the world is a protracted process of university entrance. And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they're not good enough, because the thing they were good at in school wasn't valued, or was actually stigmatized. And I think we can't afford to go on that way.

"Now kids with degrees are often heading home to carry on playing video games, because you need an MA where the previous job required a BA and now you need a Ph.D for the other. It's a process of academic inflation. And it indicates the whole structure of education is shifting beneath our feet. We need to radically rethink our view of intelligence.

"The brain isn't divided into compartments. In fact, creativity, which I define as the process of having original ideas that have value, more often than not comes about through the interaction of different disciplinary ways of seeing things. The brain intentionally has a a shaft of nerves that joins the two halves of the brain called the corpus collosum, and it's thicker in women.

"I'm fascinated by how people got to be there. It's really prompted by a conversation I had with a wonderful woman who maybe most people have never heard of, she's called Gillian Lynne, have you heard of her? Some have. She's a choreographer and everybody knows her work. She did Cats and Phantom of the Opera, she's wonderful. I used to be on the board of the Royal Ballet, in England, as you can see and Gillian and I had lunch one day and I said Gillian, how'd you get to be a dancer? And she said it was interesting, when she was at school, she was really hopeless. And the school, in the 30s, wrote her parents and said, "We think Gillian has a learning disorder." She couldn't concentrate, she was fidgeting. I think now they'd say she had ADHD. Wouldn't you? But this was the 1930s and ADHD hadn't been invented at this point. It wasn't an available condition. People weren't aware they could have that.

"Anyway she went to see this specialist, in this oak-paneled room and she was there with her mother and she was led and sat on a chair at the end and she sat on her hands for 20 minutes while this doctor talked to her mother about all the problems Gillian was having at school. And at the end of it, because she was disturbing people, her homework was always late and so on, little kid of 8, in the end, the doctor went and sat next to Gillian and said "Gillian I've listened to all these things that your mother's told me and I need to speak to her privately." He said "Wait here, we'll be back, we won't be very long" and they went and left her. 

"But as they went out the room, he turned on the radio that was sitting on his desk and when they got out the room, he said to her mother "Just stand and watch her." And the minute they left the room she was on her feet, moving to the music. And they watched for a few minutes and he turned to her mother and said, "Mrs. Lynne, Gillian isn't sick; she's a dancer! Take her to a dance school.

"I said "What happened?" 

"She said "She did. I can't tell you how wonderful it was. We walked in this room and it was full of people like me, people who couldn't sit still. People who had to move to think." 

They did ballet, they did tap, they did jazz, they did modern, they did contemporary. She was eventually auditioned for the Royal Ballet School. She became a soloist. She had a wonderful career at the Royal Ballet. She eventually graduated from the Royal Ballet School and founded her own company, the Gillian Lynne Dance Company and met Andrew Lloyd Weber. 

"She's been responsible for some of the most successful musical theater productions in history. She's given pleasure to millions and she's a multimillionaire. 

"Somebody else might have put her on medication and told her to calm down.

"The future is to adopt a new conception of human ecology, one in which we start to reconstitute our conception of the richness of human capacity. We have to rethink the fundamental principles on which we're educating our children.

"We need to see our creative capacities for the richness they are and see our children for the hope that they are. Our job is to help them make something of it. Thank you very much."

The only thing more expensive than an education is ignorance!
   It is sweet when knowledge is presented in an interesting manner and in such a way as the student is encouraged to contribute:.Proverbs 16:21 "The wise in heart shall be called prudent and the sweetness of the lips increases learning."

-Keeping the info from them: Why isn't truth about money taught in schools and universities? Why aren't the spiritual faculties humans have, being taught in schools and universities? Why aren't the wonders of the human immune system held up high and taught about, rather than the steering toward highly poisonous vaccinations and medical treatments? Why is medical quackery ignorantly lauded while time tested health principles placed in disdain? And the same applies to relationships. Why are kids not taught the value of independence instead of group think? Why can so few teachers teach so children actually learn on how to have a life based on the true universal laws, rather than them being graded on repeating and remembering information most of them will never use. Why is education mandated to be 'cookie cutter' one size fits all, instead of each child's unique individual strengths emphasized? Why are not questions from children massively encouraged in schools and universities?
