  • The story of the Phoenix is as old as time. The tale of a bird burning itself every 500 years in order to renew its immortality has been passed through all major civilizations since the ancients Greeks. Sensing old age and lackluster, the mystical bird collects kindling and fans its own fire while nesting upon the flames. From the ashes of the old Phoenix, a young and beautiful Phoenix is reborn. By overcoming fire, death, and old age, the Phoenix represents triumph over adversity and rebirth into glory, thereby providing hope and constancy.
  • he handprint to the right is a cave painting drawn 32,000 years ago and is the oldest portrait of man. On the walls of Chauvet Cave in southern France, the artist used the technology of his day, tinted charcoal dust blown through a straw, to create a simple, yet powerful icon of human-ness. This image captures the essence of human-centered computing. Much like the Paleolithic beings, we still use technology to relate to, understand and depict the world around us, still trying to say "I am here. I am human."

  • Friedrich Froebel created Kindergarten (1837 first school Kindergarten) 19 th century The name Kindergarten signifies both a garden for children, a location where they can observe and interact with nature, and also a garden of children, where they themselves can grow and develop in freedom from arbitrary political and social imperatives. In 1837, having developed and tested a radically new educational method and philosophy based on structured, activity based learning, Froebel moved to Bad Blankenburg and established his Play and Activity Institute which he renamed in 1840 Kindergarten ." The kindergarten was essentially tri-partite: toys for sedentary creative play (these Froebel called gifts and occupations ) games and dances for healthy activity observing and nurturing plants in a garden for stimulating awareness of the natural world It was a search for metaphysical unity , in which the potential growth to wholeness of the individual child within the natural world would fulfil an harmonious ideal within the mind of God. " Peter Weston in The Froebel Educational Institute: the Origins and History of the College Froebel's philosophy of education were based on the concepts of free self-expression, creativity, social activity, and motor ability and work.

  • Froebel developed a specific set of 20 "gifts" and "occupations" - physical objects such as balls, blocks, and sticks - for children to use in the kindergarten. Froebel carefully designed these gifts to help children recognize and appreciate the common patterns and forms found in nature. Froebel's gifts were eventually distributed throughout the world, deeply influencing the development of generations of young children.

  • Learning 2.0 is the idea that blossomed from my thoughts and in developing the program I sought to remove the knowledge expert from the front of the class equation and capitalize on the two most important factors of any learning environment. That being have engaged participates ( notice these are not students, they’re participants who are engaged in their own learning) and motivation. Everyone needs some type of motivation to learn. So with the instructor removed from the classroom and the notion that participates would be engaged in charge of their own learning, I came up with some goals and fundamentals for this new program.
