Living in the Paradigm of Multiple Nets                               [A world of making connections, finding nets, exploring links]  The world of nets – inside our brain and in the outer world            (What is the relativity of nets? What are the links between the inner and the outer nets!) Living in the paradigm of multiple nets can re-frame, re-examine and re-define our theory, research and practice Few common examples (Many extensions can be compared) Subject 1 + Subject 2 = A New Field of Study Idea 1 + idea 2 à Leading to new levels of innovations (Or more than two combinations can also be observed) Linguistics + Computers = Computational Linguistics Quantum + Biology = Quantum Biology Linguistics + Palaeontology = Linguistic Palaeontology Social Processes + Neuroscience = Social Neuroscience Inventions by combining two technologies or two gadgets or more Car + Bike = Car Bike Cardboard + Bike = Card Board Bike Binary Math + Electronics = Computers Phone + Internet + Touch screen =? Neuro-links, social-links {reaching the new galaxies in the expanding universe of ideas} How various nets play a role in our learning & creativity? How does the interface of nets influence our lives? Nets of concepts Nets of associative links Nets of ideas Nets of subjects Nets of numbers Nets of communication Nets of social frames Nets of inventions Nets of personal skills  [An important paradigm to research- expanding insights and connections to our theory & practice in education/ related fields of study] Many groundbreaking discoveries and inventions were based on making some form of links & connections between the ideas and the objects. Inspiring, tracking, mapping our ways of making links between various ideas, certain objects & studying neurological links of inside and outside world can be of help in applying research and teaching models. "Kids need to learn how to leap across disciplines because that is how breakthroughs now come about. It's interdisciplinary combinations- design and technology, mathematics and art—that produce youtube and myspace."        (TIME, December 18, 2006, page 34)  Cognitive-net and grid patterns inside and outside worlds [Finding grid like diagrams of brain & making grids (or links) of ideas and linking theory, research & practice] The neuroscience research about the analysis of brain is also bringing new tools to enrich the psychological and educational pathways in this field (such as The Brain Targeted Teaching Model by: Mariale Hardiman; Mind, Brain & Education by: David A Sousa et al. 2010).   The importance of making neurological connections to enrich the functions of brain is explained by many studies. On the other hand the intriguing ways of making connections of ideas, connecting experimental indicators, connecting subjects and connecting the fields is also leading to the revolutionary ways of new era in science, math, technology, art (and more subjects). In the outer world the making of connections is mostly observable in the forms of connecting a number of ideas. Just a few examples include:   - Connecting the idea of space and time (pioneering groundbreaking theories) - Binary math and electronics to invent computer fields (connecting ideas) - Art, science, math, electronics and internet leading to YouTube - Subjects integrating to lead to new fields (cognitive science, quantum biology, computational linguistics, computational neuroscience) - Inventions by combining certain systems: connecting the idea of car and bike, and inventing Car-Bike, Wheelchair car, cardboard bicycle (the list is long) - Also noticed that students feel inspired to make their own inventions when provided opportunities to make connections and by showing them the examples of others to make inventions by making connections (cognitive-net and social-net)  - Almost all forms of learning & innovation has some form of making connections, nets and links The idea of making connections in the inner functions of brain and the outer world elements is leading to think of cognitive-net, social-net {nowadays also Internet} This research has interdisciplinary scope, neuroscientists, educators, cognitive scientists, psychologists, linguists etc.   In the year 2014- A Nobel Prize (for Medicine) was given for the  “discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain". {Like an inner GPS in the brain}  https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/laureates/2014/press.html A possible hypothesis to explore further: Making nets of ideas and the nets of subjects in our learning environment can also inspire unique and faster neural connections to facilitate our learning, innovation and understanding “highly regular grid like structures in the brain”,         A National Institute of Health study. Book “How to create a mind” by Ray Kurzweil Page 84 “The construction of stronger, more efficient networks (faster retrievals, greater transfer) in long-term memory is stimulated by repeated activation of the circuit, such that practice makes permanent.”                                                   Mind, Brain & Education. David Sousa [et al.] 2010. Page 58. ......................................   If an interdisciplinary research is conducted to highlight the intriguing factors of the outer world links and the inner world of neuroscience (understanding the process of making connections in the inside and outside worlds & inspire pathways for creativity), probably this idea (cognitive-net!) will have some enriched data to apply it in a number of ways. Some implications for psychology, education and other related fields with a vision to develop new fields of study are possible (cognitive-net & beyond). Perhaps it may enrich the way we work in various fields! HOW TO CREATE AND EXPLORE COGNITIVE-NET          A SECRET TO INSPIRE YOUR CREATIVITY Please check the link: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=BF15A67314F19523!127&authkey=!AOcrt49xGgKjGHA&ithint=folder%2cpdf Cognitive-net Social-net Cognitive Journey Cognitive Diversity Intriguing ways to expand our mind range ………………………………… Some of these ideas were also presented in the STEM conference in Finland, June 7, 2016 (session 6):                                                        http://www.luma.fi/isse-2016/4222 Presentation- May 2017. Find details: www.luma.fi/lumat-2017 Forming Cognitive-nets & Social-nets can inspire creativity with the power of Cognitive Diversity …………………………………………………………………                              STEM and MBE STEM =   Science, Technology, Engineering, Math MBE   =   Mind, Brain & Education ................................................................................................................................................ Brain research education for all: The research in neuroscience and education can be shared with all countries using local languages to enrich our education / research / theory. ……………… MBE = Mind, Brain & Education [at Harvard University]: http://www.gse.harvard.edu/masters/mbe Some scholars also put emphasis on the dimension of culture (for example book: Networks of Mind), a forward thinking is to combine MBE + Culture and develop a program                                       MIND, BRAIN, EDUCATION & CULTURE = MBEC ……………….. Why we need to introduce research journals for children ? Introducing a simplified form of higher level research journals, (as we have children version of higher level encyclopaedias and dictionaries) This idea is published through Edumeres, please click on: http://repository.gei.de/bitstream/handle/11428/96/72239697X_2016_A.pdf?sequence=2&isAllowed=y (George Eckert Institute [GEI]  is well-known for textbook research) …………………. The economics, careers and cognitive-nets From IQ to EQ, MQ and BQ Are we going to look for “Interdisciplinary Quotient” as well?   The world of next generations of technology based automation will also make new combination of fields with new type of careers. Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne, of Oxford University, estimate that about 47% of the fields and occupations can be taken by Internet automation revolution, in a short period, possibly from one or two decades.   ( Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A. Osborne have discussed this challenge in their paper The future of employment: How susceptible are jobs to computerisation, published on September 17, 2013. ) The field of education is emphasizing about EQ (Emotional Quotient), BQ (Body Quotient), MQ (Moral Quotient) along with more conventional IQ (Intelligence Quotient). Perhaps the next wave of social, economic and education needs will look for “Interdisciplinary Quotient.”    [Jobs with multiple links to STEM- the new trends have arrived] ………………… Math Learning (for students, parents, educators) http://www.mathies.ca/ ………………….
