  • He said that they understood cultures by their symbols. When the Spanish came they carried a cross.
  • To the Hopi the cross meant rationality, geometry and materialism.
  • Without a circle the Spanish lacked a holitistc perspective, and therefore were doomed to ruin.
  • The Hopi symbol has a cross and circle, which represents balance.
  • It is like the medecine wheel that is common among North American tribes.
  • The right-side of the brain controls the left side of the body, and the left side of the brain control the right side. Each hemisphere also expresses different processing modules that effect communications. We can say that the left side is oriented towards print literacy, and the right oriented for multimedia. This is the design of the mind.
  • Therefore, in our educating approach, we must design for mind, and pattern.
  • This shift is simple. Rather then look at the products of design, we should examine the design of media products.
  • The ecological practice of permaculture understand that our operating paradigm is inseparable from designing solutions. [fix]
  • An industrial paradigm promotes linear, centralized approaches to the system. Nuclear power is a perfect expression of this because it is embedded within the military industrial complex.
  • Solar power, on the other hand, is decentralized, local and small.
  • We have internalized many assumptions of the industrial age
  • Thus, media literacy is also a product of industrialization.
  • It tends to promote “independent” thinking rather than interdependence.
  • This is characterized by Henry Jenkins Convergence Culture model which stresses knowledge communities and distributed networks. Students of the future will be knowledge workers in this environment.
  • We explore how media exist in relationship to different factors, such as cognition, local and community interpretations of symbols, and the particular bias of media (such as books, Websites and television).
  • Serving as a kind of human thermostat, the end result is to produce negative feedback into the system so as to bring it back into balance with the design of nature, thereby putting the cross back into the circle.
