Hope Quotes

Hope is to make the best use of. Make as great as possible.

Imagine a Laptop Computer filled with all the Educational Curriculum from Grades K through 14, with Courses and Tests.
Now imagine that same laptop filled with information, audio and Video Lessons, books, Textbooks, encyclopedias, Documentary Films, Compressed Movies, Farming Knowledge, Sustainable Living Knowledge, Nutrition Knowledge, Hygiene Knowledge, Eco-System Knowledge, Child Development Knowledge, Human Brain Knowledge and so on. People can also test themselves with intelligence tests, skills tests, eye tests, hearing tests, video games, reading tests and so on. Part Open Source Public Education and part Public Domain Knowledge Base. And if there's internet service, people will also be able to search the Internet for more Information and Knowledge. Internet service will also give access to News, TV & Entertainment, Music, and Libraries. And the best part of the internet is being able to give the student 24 Hours a day video assistance from Tutors and educators, kind of like the Mayday button from Kindle and Information Stations  Each Laptop will have a Smartphone and an Instruction Manual.

It will be like having a Life Tool Kit or Human Operators Manual that doubles as an Education and Science Tool Kit, and as well as an Entertainment Tool Kit.

Learn how to be intelligent.

57 Million Children Worldwide without access to Education, over one third lives in settings of conflict and fragility (UNESCO, 2015). Well over half of 1.4 million Syrian refugee children and adolescents are not in school (UNICEF, 2016). This does not include the Billions of people who are undereducated by an inadequate and dysfunctional education system.

Democratic Education is an educational ideal in which democracy is both a goal and a method of instruction. It brings democratic values to education and can include self-determination within a community of equals, as well as such values as justice, respect and trust. Democratic education is often specifically emancipatory, with the students' voices being equal to the teacher's.

The goal is to make a high quality education that is self directing, Plug and Play, or Plug and Learn. This way anyone can be a teacher, and anyone can be a student. Whether you're a high achieving student or a student who is struggling. And anyone can test themselves. So testing will not hold you back, testing will keep you moving forward. Learning at your own speed, learning in your own time, and learning in your own way. Testing will be only a guide, testing will not be used as a judgment of your potential. Testing is a tool to measure understanding, and testing is not a measurement of your ability to understand; So wrong answers are just temporary until you find the right answers. But just knowing the right answers does not mean that you have all the answers. So remember, testing is only a guide, it is not a judgment of your potential. Getting wrong answers is still progress, because you now know which answers are wrong, and why they are wrong. This is progress.

As soon as the student understands knowledge and information, they will never stop learning, because they will understand the benefits and the potential that comes from acquiring important knowledge and information. Increased intelligence will not just be a benefit to the student themselves, but they will also be a benefit everyone around them.

Having a computer connected to the internet is like having the combined intelligence of millions of people in your hand, a Lifetime of Education, it's like having the Whole World in your hands.

Knowledge Mobilization

We have the ability to create the most advanced education in the world and put our greatest school into peoples hands. This way no parent has to worry about finding the best school for their child, they can have the best school in the world delivered to them where ever they live. 

Purposes of Education
Accelerated Learning

Computers are great tools because they can make a persons disability less intrusive, and less likely to impede learning.

This idea of course is not new. In 1954, B. F. Skinner talked about a Teaching Machine and Programmed Learning. But we now have over 80% more knowledge and information then was available in 1954, and we also have more technological advances, so a learning and teaching machine would be even more advanced then originally intended. 

PLATO (computer system) was the first generalized computer assisted instruction system. Starting in 1960, it ran on the University of Illinois' ILLIAC I computer. By the late 1970s, it supported several thousand graphics terminals distributed worldwide, running on nearly a dozen different networked mainframe computers.

Q and A

Programmed Instruction is learning material in a kind of textbook or teaching machine or computer. The medium presents the material in a logical and tested sequence. The text is in small steps or larger chunks. After each step, learners are given a question to test their comprehension. Then immediately the correct answer is shown. This means the learner at all stages makes responses, and is given immediate knowledge of results.

Reward-Based Learning

Computer-Based Learning (CBL) is the term used for any kind of learning with the help of computers. Computer-based learning makes use of the interactive elements of the computer applications and software and the ability to present any type of media to the users. Computer-based learning has many benefits, including the advantage of users learning at their own pace and also learning without the need for an instructor to be physically present. (Ai Avatar - Remote Tutor) Computer-based learning is also known as computer-aided instruction. Computer-based learning can be used in Problem-solving training, Creative and instructional games, Simulation-based learning, training and Knowledge-based training and assessment. There are many advantages associated with computer-based learning. It provides more learning opportunity for people from disadvantaged environments. People can learn at a pace comfortable for them, unlike in a traditional classroom. Users need to spend only the required time to learn the subject in the case of computer-based learning, and it is also available all the time. Computer-based learning is cost effective in many ways, as it reduces travel time and also the same application can be used to teach new students or users. The learning also offers safety and flexibility as well as helps learners to track their progress. Another big advantage is in the reduction of overall training time.

Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) is a computer system that aims to provide immediate and customized instruction or feedback to learners, usually without intervention from a human teacher. ITS's have the common goal of enabling learning in a meaningful and effective manner by using a variety of computing technologies. Intelligent Computer-Assisted Instruction with Dialogue and Feedback.

Educational Technology is the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources.

Computer-Based Training - Computerized Learning Systems

Learning Management System is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of electronic educational technology (also called e-learning) courses or training programs.

Virtual Learning Environment is a platform for the digital aspects of courses of study, usually within educational institutions. VLEs typically: allow participants to be organized into cohorts, groups and roles; present resources, activities and interactions within a course structure; provide for the different stages of assessment; report on participation; and have some level of integration with other institutional systems.

Computerized Adaptive Testing is a form of computer-based test that adapts to the examinee's ability level and education level, which is based on what is known about the examinee from previous questions. The difficulty of the exam will automatically adjust to the examinee's skill level. For example, if an examinee performs well on an item of intermediate difficulty, they will then be presented with a more difficult question. Or, if they performed poorly, they will be presented with a simpler question.

Once a child, parent, teacher or student learns how to use the computer they could then educate themselves and learn in their own chosen environment. Then of course anyone who learns how to operate the computer can eventually teach other people, children, teachers or parents on how to use the computer to educate themselves and others. Self replicating, self perpetuating, self regulating and constantly updating. And when a person learns how to build other similar computers from parts, then the delivery mechanism for information and knowledge will multiply.

Rugged Computer is a computer specifically designed to operate reliably in harsh usage environments and conditions, such as strong vibrations, extreme temperatures and wet or dusty conditions. They are designed from inception for the type of rough use typified by these conditions, not just in the external housing but in the internal components and cooling arrangements as well. In general, ruggedized and hardened computers share the same design robustness and frequently these terms are interchangeable. Typical environments for rugged laptops, tablet PCs and PDAs are public safety, field sales, field service, manufacturing, retail, healthcare, transportation/distribution and the military. They are used in the agricultural industries, and by individuals for outdoor recreation activities.

Pick and Place Machines
SMT Placement Equipment are robotic machines which are used to place surface-mount devices (SMDs) onto a printed circuit board (PCB). They are used for high speed, high precision placing of broad range of electronic components, like capacitors, resistors, integrated circuits onto the PCBs which are in turn used in computers, consumer electronics as well as industrial, medical, automotive, military and telecommunications equipment.
Samsung SM482 Flexible, SMART Pick & Place Machine (youtube)
Surface-Mount Technology (SMT) is a method for producing electronic circuits in which the components are mounted or placed directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). An electronic device so made is called a surface-mount device (SMD). In the industry it has largely replaced the through-hole technology construction method of fitting components with wire leads into holes in the circuit board. Both technologies can be used on the same board, with the through-hole technology used for components not suitable for surface mounting such as large transformers and heat-sinked power semiconductors. An SMT component is usually smaller than its through-hole counterpart because it has either smaller leads or no leads at all. It may have short pins or leads of various styles, flat contacts, a matrix of solder balls (BGAs), or terminations on the body of the component.
Heller Industries SMT Reflow Oven is a machine used primarily for reflow soldering of surface mount electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCB).

Each laptop would also have video and audio instructions on how to use the laptop incase the person has no computer skills.

Intelligent Tutoring System is a computer system that aims to provide immediate and customized instruction or feedback to learners, usually without intervention from a human teacher.
Tutoring Online

Adaptive Learning uses computers as interactive teaching devices, and to orchestrate the allocation of human and mediated resources according to the unique needs of each learner. Computers adapt the presentation of educational material according to students' learning needs, as indicated by their responses to questions, tasks and experiences. The technology encompasses aspects derived from various fields of study including computer science, education, psychology, and brain science.

Voice Activated - Intelligent Agent

Intelligent Software Assistant is a software agent that can perform tasks or services for an individual. These tasks or services are based on user input, location awareness, and the ability to access information from a variety of online sources (such as weather or traffic conditions, news, stock prices, user schedules, retail prices, etc.).

Video Lessons about various subjects is a great teaching tool. Imagine a teacher video taping their best teaching methods on a particular subject. Now imagine other teachers watching this video and learning from these techniques, or even better, making a new video discussing how they found new ways to improve these same teaching methods. Video can be compressed to take up less space without sacrificing quality. So now we can make education available to more students and improve teaching methods and strategies at the same time.

Using Digital Technology for Education

It would be great to use something like the Popcorn Webmaker to add more information and knowledge about any subject that is being discussed in any film. Helping the viewer understand more about what is happening in the film, and also explain any misunderstandings or inaccuracy's that may be in the film that may have misinformation or not enough information. This way you can minimize the possibility of misleading the viewer into believing something that is inaccurate.

Classroom of the future will be like Holodeck from Star Trek and the Loading Program from the Matrix. If you don't have four empty walls then you can have three totally white walls to project images on and play sound from, with the windows of the room at your back. Total submersion into a subject, interactive and adjustable, making learning an incredible and enjoyable journey. The room would also have a digital display that would show temperature, oxygen level, humidity and other environmental factors to guarantee that the student has a comfortable learning environment.

In conjunction with the building of the Hope PC the Complete Education System will also be created.
So Curriculum Designers, Software Designers, Engineers and thousands of Teachers will also be used.

First Step is to build the first proto type PC. Open Design Make the first laptop a kit so that anyone can order the parts and build it themselves and give feedback on how to improve it. Via openbook
Second Step will be perfecting this computer and all it's components, software and accessories.  Components
Third Step would be the manufacture setup. Once I have a Laptop that is a clear example of what this PC should have and how this PC should operate, I will then look for Investors and volunteers to help distribute the Laptops to everyone who needs them, starting with the less fortunate people who have limited means or have limited access to good schools, which happens to be almost every human on the planet. Sponsoring a child just took on a new definition. And if each person who receives the PC promises to share it with others we can help educate more people even faster.
Forth Step would be training thousands of teachers and people how to use and maintain each PC. Then those people would train other people how to use and maintain the PC. Each person who receives training would receive their own PC and repeat the process. A test, similar to a drivers license test would be used to determine if a person is allowed to operate and own this PC.
Of course this is just a guideline to help deter theft and abuse and will most likely be modified depending on the needs of people. Each person who receives this PC must also fully understand the responsibilities that come with having an extremely important and powerful tool. Some of the first people to get these laptops will be teachers so they can use the PC as a teaching tool. Teachers would also be able to determine what students would benefit the most from having their own laptop. Mothers will also be first in line to receive these laptops. Mothers know the importance of education and deeply care about their children and their future. I will also work on a Pledge or a test that would help pick out the best candidates so that anyone with a thirst for knowledge can receive a laptop that would help advance their learning capabilities. But of course it will take more then a pledge or a promise for children to do the right thing because some children are already Incorrectly Educated and lack the abilities to learn or have no willingness to learn and possess very little Self-discipline. So children who are eager to learn and who possess
self-discipline will be the most favorable candidates for these laptops, though it will not be a prerequisite.

Project Management Problem Solving





Information Stations


Timely and Reliable Information 24 Hours a day

Link.nyc replace over 7,500 pay phones across the five boroughs with new structures called Links. Each Link will provide superfast, free public Wi-Fi, phone calls, device charging and a tablet for access to city services, maps and directions.

Smart City 24x7 Protect started before 11/21/2012. Was not exactly what it should be, but it was close, the most important thing is that it showed Information Stations can be done.

Interactive kiosk is a computer terminal featuring specialized hardware and software that provides access to information and applications for communication, commerce, entertainment, and education.

IPad style Touch screen with internet connection that is on 24 hours a day. Like a pay-phone that is placed in locations through a town or city where Residents and Tourists can quickly look up information, send e-mail, find directions, find phone numbers, look up events, times and dates for town meetings, city information, public transportation, find addresses of services, see the current issues that are plaguing the City, and view websites and so on. Similar to the Smart City 24x7 Protect, and the Instant Complaint Logging Internet Kiosk (ICLICK) in India, and the Hole in the Wall in India, and the Entune Infotainment System.

The information station can also have a 24 hour video operator to assist people like the Mayday button from Kindle, the operator will also see who they are talking to if needed.

Solarbox
The Solar Box above is also a good idea. A Personal Information Station, when occupied the windows automatically tints black.
When someone else wants to use it, they push a button to let the person on the inside know they have 10 minutes left. Then a digital clock on the inside and outside will count down the minutes left. The connection will only end when the door opens. The person inside will be able to see who's on the outside.

The information station will also be a website with the exact same features so that anyone can use it anywhere in the world and also be able to familiarize themselves with the interface. The IS can also have Speech Recognition that would recognize the language of the person who speaks in front of the Information station and then the IS would match the text, voice and symbols of that language. Have an Ai with Personality. Maybe have the IS ask questions like "How can I help you?"  And then show symbols like water, food, shelter, health, services and directions. You should also have the Information stations at bus stops and other public transportation areas. The IS could also have a solar panel roof so that it does not have to depend on external power, will also have a Battery Backup incase of power outages. The I.S. should also have a button to change the interface. The Information Station can also be a large 40" LCD Touch Screen that has a Digital Fish Tank or Digital Forest Animals or photo slide show, images of public art or even a short movie. The Screen will display a continues movie of fish swimming by, and when you touch a fish it will tell you its name and the locations where that fish can be found around the world. Also display estimated numbers. The same concept with animals. Where birds and other land animals walk by or fly by in slow motion and when you touch the animal it will tell you everything about the animal. We have to make information and knowledge available to everyone, so the key is in the delivery. Information input must have different starting points, information must also be in different mediums, so depending on the persons age and skill level they can easily self direct themselves. You then should have basic instructions on how this particular information is usually processed. Libraries should also have Information and Knowledge Stations for Self Education and Emergencies.

Laptops for Hospital Patients


When I visited my father in the hospital a saw him watching TV and thought how depressing and wasteful it was. Instead of TV hospitals should offer laptops to patients so that they can educate themselves about their condition or disease and also keep learning, working and stay connected to family and friends. They can also watch their favorite program or movie at their own time without disturbing other patients. So Candy Stripers would bring more then just books. More than 40% of American seniors don’t use the internet at all.

Your Life on a Jump Drive


Now that you can carry portable memory with over a hundred gig of information on a key chain a person can literally carry their life’s work in their pocket where ever they go. A person can carry their diary, education, photos, favorite music, favorite movies, health information, family history, achievements, favorite activities, favorite sports, and anything else they can digitize. Of course the jump drive would be Encrypted with the password that is only known by close family members and friends. If all the knowledge and information that is contained on these flash drives were to be shared into a central database we could accumulate information and knowledge that could be used to make improvements. We can learn a lot from each other but only if we are given a way to share our thoughts and ideas.

Technology Warnings


Technology is an incredible tool, and an amazing extension of our intelligence, but that's only when technology is used effectively and efficiently. Technology can save time, but technology can also waste time. Technology can connect us, but technology can also disconnect us. So the problem is not technology, the problem is education. We need an education that teaches students effective ways on how to use technology effectively, efficiently and productively. People need to understand what technology is, and what technology isn't. Remember ‘Technology’ is just a tool. The major problem with Technology is that there are not enough qualified people who are skilled enough to know how to use technology effectively and efficiently or is there enough experienced people who have enough skills to teach others how to use technology effectively and efficiently. And of course this means that there are not enough knowledgeable people to fully understand the potential of technology, or know when to implement its use. Just like any tool, if it’s not used properly it will not help. And if you don’t teach people how to use tools properly, then those tools will be wasted just like every other tool in human history. We train and educate people so that they can drive cars safely and productively. So who’s training people how to use computers and cell phones safely and productively? And just because people are wasting technology or misusing and abusing technology, this does not mean that it’s not helping civilization. So technology by itself cannot fix our enormous problems like poverty, starvation and education. Incompetence is not the fault of technology, it is the fault of poorly educated humans. And to use technology to say that technology is not helping is not just Contradictory, it’s completely ignorant. Don’t blame the tool or the technology. Blame our education system that fails to teach students basic skills, knowledge and proper behavior. A laptop can’t teach everything to a child, but it can help teach a child who has no teacher or no school, as long as they know how to use the PC effectively and efficiently. It boils down to maximizing our actions and fully understanding our best choices and using our tools effectively. So communicating this information and knowledge is extremely important. You have to be clear when showing people the ways they can help. And technology can definitely help speed up this process. This is why every HOPE PC will have instructions on how to use technology effectively and efficiently. The easy to understand instructions will be in a video format and in writing. One of the responsibilities that technology needs to have is to teach the person how to solve problems without using technology. Technology will give you the answer, but it should also show you how the answer was obtained. You don't want technology to replace your brain, because when the technology is gone or not working, then you will not have the necessary brain power to solve problems on your own, a problem that could save your life. Avoiding dependencies will make you less vulnerable. Using voice activated software to search the internet should also be secondary. Hearing words is not as effective as reading words because you can analyze words more carefully when reading them verses just listening to words. Plus you don't want to encourage people not to read and write. Some technology tools are more beneficial to people with disabilities, and less beneficial to people without disabilities.

Digital Literacy Project works with communities to expand access to technology through improved digital literacy. In Boston, we teach introductory computer science classes to middle school students.

People can remember their experiences, but they seldom remember what they have learned from those experiences. We gain knowledge all through our life, but most people choose to remember only their experiences, and they remember very little of what they have learned during and in between those experiences. We are not using our brains the way we should, just like when we misuse technology, it does more harm then good. You inadvertently reduce the benefits of having a brain, a brain with incredible memory capacity and processing abilities. If you are to teach only one thing to a student, it would have to be The Power of Learning. Our most prized asset is our mind. Schools need to seriously rethink what knowledge and skills students need to learn, and when they should be learning them.

Cognitive Offloading is the tendency to rely on things like the Internet as a memory-aid. Spending less time consulting our own memory to recall things could diminish our memory and the power of our own brain. Just like any dependency or addiction, there are consequences, with this one being diminishing brain power, which is extremely dangerous. But of course we can't remember everything or remember every little detail, especially things that are irrelevant. So not all offloading is bad.
The Extended Mind are objects within the environment function as a part of the mind, like technology. The mind and the environment can act as a "coupled system". Avoiding Information Overload. Brain Chip
Extended Cognition is the view that mental processes and mind extend beyond the body to include aspects of the environment in which an organism is embedded and the organism's interaction with that environment.
Distributed Cognition is when cognitive processes may be distributed across the members of a social group.
External Memory (psychology) is the opposite of internal memory. When a person uses something beside his/her own internal memory tricks, traits, or talents to help him/her remember certain events, facts, or even things to do, the person is using an external memory aid. External memory aids are used every day. A large part of these aids come from technology; people use their smartphones to remind them when they have meetings and Facebook reminds people of their friends' birthdays. These aids also include taking notes in class, carrying a grocery list to the supermarket, or jotting down dates on a planner. Even people, or prompters, can be used as external memory aids. Try not to Transfer your Responsibilities.

Just because you are given abilities does not guarantee that you will use them correctly.

Computers can be incredibly fast and incredibly accurate, but computers can also be inaccurate and slow. Humans can be incredibly fast and accurate, but humans can also be inaccurate and slow. Computers are the most powerful when they are faster and more accurate then a human, Humans are more powerful when they are faster and more accurate then a computer. Using a computer in the right way and at the right time is extremely important. using your mind in the right way and at the right time is extremely important. Using your mind and a computer in the right ways and at the right times can help maximize the power of both, if not they can cancel each other out.

"I'm not against technology, Doctor. I'm against the men who deify it at the expense of human truth." Quote from the 1997 Film "Contact"  -  Deify is to consider something as a God or Godlike.

Humans make computers, computers don't make humans. Humans make mistakes, that means computers can also make mistakes. Computers are one of the greatest tools that we have ever developed, but computers are still under development. The human mind is one of the greatest tools ever developed, but the human mind is still under development. A computer can answer a question, but a computer does not know if the answer is right or wrong, that is a humans job.

Cell phones with Internet access are only a weak and limited alternative and definitely not a replacement for a laptop or a desktop computer. But smartphones are still an amazing tool, if used correctly. A smartphone could be a great ‘A Learning Tool’, but the most people are not using them that way. A cell phone is another way of connecting to the internet, but not very efficiently. If a laptop computer is a window to the world then the cell phone is a very small window to the world that only opens halfway. And just having an internet connection does not say that you will actually use it correctly or effectively. A Smart Phone will not make you smarter, it will most likely make you more of an idiot, mostly because people waste time thinking technology is just a play thing for entertainment purposes. Imagine if you used your Brain as a play thing just to play games, yes you would grow up to be a Idiot. And to think that a cell phone will somehow bridge the Digital Divide between people is to optimistic. Our technology is just a tool, and we have many tools. Advances in technology does not level the playing field between the rich and the poor. Our social connections are not our primary platform for learning in everyday lives. Relying on other people for knowledge and information is only affective and reliable when those other people are actually learning new knowledge and acquiring new information. "Knowing a lot of people is good, but knowing a few people who know a lot is much better." Having access to more information does not necessarily mean that people will be more educated. Increased communication between people using mobile Social Media also does not mean that people will be more educated or informed. The potential of the Internet will be defined by how we use all our knowledge and information to help educate people, and not by giving kids more cell phones. To say that these systems are not open enough to allow innovation and learning from street-level knowledge is only true when something is false, like bad information. I’m not saying that cell phones don’t have potential, or that cell phones are not a useful and valuable tool, I’m just saying that the sharing of knowledge and information should not be so reliant on these tools that we use, but more importantly, that our knowledge and information needs to be accurate, organized and available to everyone no matter if they have a tool or not. Having a particular digital device or just having more technology tools will not make you smarter. The only way you become smarter and more knowledgeable is by knowing how to use the most reliable and the most important tool that every human has, which is the Human Brain. The human brain can learn how to make tools and learn how to use tools. But more importantly when the human brain is educated properly, the human brain also knows how to make sense of it all. And one of the things that the human brain makes sense of, is that itself is the most important and the most powerful tool a person has in their possession, and Technology can be a great extension of our Brains. So wasting our resources will not make us smarter. We have to use our resources intelligently, appropriately, affectively and efficiently. But even then that is only one step in our education process. We have a long way to go. Simply providing technology tools to people will not make them more educated or make their life any better. Teaching people how to make use of all the tools that we have, especially the tool in their head, is the only sure way of educating people and improving life for everyone.

Knowledge Gap

Teaching Technology
Is Technology just another word for Tool?

To say that technology does not replace teachers is a misleading and ignorant statement. That's like saying books don't replace teachers. But every student knows that education consists of reading a lot of books, and consists of reading a lot of papers and writings. And technology is just a nicer book because it's interactive, which increases learning speed, quantity and quality. Focus more on the knowledge and information and not just the tools that we use to transfer knowledge and information. Just because an ignorant society throws away millions of cell phones and computers every year does not mean that we are not benefiting from our technologies, all that says is that we are still ignorant in a lot of ways, even though we have the technologies that says we have intelligence. Education needs to improve. Bottom line.

"Being technologically mature will not save society, society has to be intellectually mature, then and only then will we succeed, because too many people look at computers as toys, when in fact, computers are one of the most powerful tools for learning."

"If a technology tool does not have a learning objective, or if it doesn't increase productivity beyond what it actually costs, then it's just a waste of time, people and resources. Everyone pays for stupid little gadgets even if you never buy one." 

Questions to ask when choosing a Computer, Laptop, Tablet or Smartphone?
Does the device play videos?
Does the device process Interactive Software?
Can the device be upgraded? Is the device repairable and recyclable?
Can the device use jump-drives and flash-drives so that the flow of information is not impeded in any way?
Do students know how to use technology effectively and efficiently?
But the bottom line is that technology is a total waste of money, time, people and resources if you only use technology to provide students with the same defective and dysfunctional curriculum that is destroying the minds of young people all over the world. Their Common core is just common crap. Ignorant people make horrible educators, thus they make horrible decisions, like buying over priced technology. Ignorant people are also easily corrupted by money, which is usually at the expense of everyone else. Kids need to be Activists when it comes to their future, because the idiots in charge don't care about the future of children. Most of them are just selfish scumbags.

What else can Smartphones do?
Besides learning something new every day, you can become more and more intelligent each and every day. You can learn to live a better life. You can learn to expand your potential. You can learn to expand your awareness.  You can learn to expand your understanding of yourself and the world around you. There is so much that you can learn, but you have to initiate the process.
With a Smartphone...
You can document things in your life by taking photos, videos and writing things down.
You can store documents, Books and Dictionaries on your smartphone and read them anytime you want.
You can bring information like maps and data about the places that you plan to visit.
You can bring information and photos to the doctors office and learn more about your condition.
You can bring information and photos of a product so that when you go the store you get the right item.
You can access all kinds of information and Knowledge on the internet.
You can use Apps that can do all kinds of diagnostics to monitor your body.

You can use Apps that can translate different languages so that you can communicate with almost every person on the planet.
You can use a Smartphone to send and receive phone calls, emails and text messages.  Productivity Apps
You can make it a habit to read something new every day, read information or knowledge that would benefit you.
You can use a Smartphone to take a college course, read manuals and text books, learn a new word, learn a new language, learn a new skill, learn more about yourself and the world around you. And if you do this daily for 30 minutes, or 4 hours a week, or 16 hours a month, that would be equal to taking a college course part time. And of course if you do this on a computer you can do it faster and more often.
A smartphone can even be a laser pointer ipin laser presenter for iphone ios android

What a 30 minute video could give you: Someone could explain to you a method that took them hundreds of experiences and years of studying in order to perfect this method. That saves people a tremendous amount of time and effort. And that is our greatest strength. We can learn, and learn fast. That means, more control, less struggling and a lot more time to enjoy ourselves, while we explore our world and our universe. Audio-Visual  But just knowing methods does not guarantee that you will use them when needed.  

Smartphones can be Productive:
You can download information for offline viewing, so if you are not connected to the internet you can still learn and educate yourself.

What Cellphones looked like



By 2020, more people in the world will have a smartphone than running water, So it makes sense that the smartphone should be able to help people fix that problem.

It takes around 75 different elements to make a cell phone.

Technology has made a lot of our manual tasks a whole lot easier to do and has also made them a lot less time consuming.
We can not deny how Technology has benefited us in many different ways. But until everyone is educated enough to use technology effectively and efficiently we will continue to cause more damage to ourselves and the world around us.
Technology is supposed to benefit mankind, it is not supposed to hurt mankind. And this hurt comes in many forms..

"Smartphones are a convenient way of transporting and transferring information and knowledge, but sadly they're not always used correctly or effectively."  

Utilitarianism is when the best moral action is the one that Maximizes Utility.
Cell Phone Addiction
Many Cities Cellphone Use Data

Technology is a direct result of Learning. When people have more access to more information and more knowledge, it generates more information and more knowledge, so we learn more and we do more, Moore's Law, or is it 'More is Law? So today we not only have more knowledge and more information then any other time, we also have more people who have more access to more knowledge then any other time, and we also have more people generating more knowledge and information then any other time. That means if Moore's Law is correct, and looking at the last 100 years, Doubling Time, we have arrived at an Exponential Growth of knowledge and information that is so big that we can no longer ignore how much we know. This will be like the great awakening, because the Power of knowledge is just now coming into focus. We have always knew about our potential, but we just couldn't focus enough to fully see what our lack of wisdom kept has us from seeing. This will be a huge celebration, but it will also be a lot of work, because even though we have more knowledge and more information, we also have more people who don't have access to more knowledge and more information, this has been our blind side, our Exponential Decay, our lost potential, the thing that we couldn't fully bring into focus. The speed on which we succeed will be directly related to how fast we can deliver information and knowledge to the people who have no access. Of course this type of sharing will not be easy or be without problems, but at least we'll be working on solving our problems, so this will just be one more problem to solve. Are you ready?

"Technology does not say how intelligent humans are, technology only says how technologically advanced we are."

"If you're not learning and progressing, then you're most likely degrading and digressing. So you are either improving life, or you're deteriorating life. Life depends on you knowing."

"The sound of hard drives spinning have given rise to the silence of solid state drives. Matter come full circle. The less energy we waste the more effective we'll be."

"In 2015 More people have died from selfies than shark attacks this year, 12 by selfies, 8 deaths caused by shark attacks."

Some day I would like to see everyone have a Smartphone. They are a great tool if used correctly. And with all the new Apps and other features, everyone can have a chance to be productive.

Improving Education is now my passion in life and my most important goal. There is nothing more important to this world then education. My whole life I have been searching. I have always been asking questions. Throughout my life I have met all kinds people and I have traveled to many distant places. I went through many changes and experienced many moments of despair. I have made many mistakes and I have made many bad decisions. I have flirted with death, so I am extremely fortunate, lucky and thankful to have lived this long. I have worked 100's of different jobs, but felt no real purpose. But it all changed in 2007 when I disconnected my TV. I started to educate myself. I finally became aware. I realized how little I knew of myself and how little I knew about this world. This was my epiphany. It all made sense. Everything in life is in someway connected to education. All my experiences now have meaning and purpose. And if it were not for the internet, and all who contributed to its vast resources of knowledge, I would have not been able to acquire the necessary knowledge and information that has enlightened me and inspired me to pursue this project. And of course the invention of the computer was the main vehicle that helped this realization happen. Making the internet and the computer the main catalysts that helped to spawn this epiphany. So it only makes sense that the PC and the internet will be major components of this project. This will be my life's work. I don't believe in retirement, I only believe in redefining purpose. You cannot deny destiny, you can only embrace it. 

Catalyst: Something that causes an important event to happen. Reactions that occur faster and with less energy.

Since January 2009 I have started finding information and ideas on how to improve education that would make education more effective and comprehensive. I have also started putting together some Educational Resources and Websites to help accumulate the best knowledge and information that the world has to offer. It still shocks me that most students spend 12 years in school and come away with very little useful knowledge. 100's of millions of students desperately need a higher quality and a more thorough education. Education is not just a humans most important asset, education is the greatest instrument for Health, Happiness and Prosperity. The sheer lack of access to a higher quality and a more thorough education is the cause for most of the problems this world is faced with today. Mostly because people cannot make good decisions or make the right choices without correct sufficient knowledge. We cannot afford to wait for schools to improve and for our teachers to become good quality teachers. We have to use more then one way to fix this problem. We have to use all of our resources and abilities. Providing PC Laptops for people, filled with knowledge, is one way to accomplish this.

I love the One Laptop Per Child and the Class Mate PC but I want to take it to the next level. The One Laptop Per Child PC is great for children of ages from 3 to 6 years old. The Classmate PC is great for children ages of 6 to 10 years old. Both of these PC's have great qualities and have opened the door to some really great ideas on how a Laptop PC can help improve a child's educational experience. But I want to make sure that we have the next generation of Learning Laptop PC's ready. Laptops that are faster with more memory and more capabilities so that the students hunger for knowledge and learning are not hampered in anyway.

Teaching Technology
Bring Education to Liberia

Every Company, Government, Community and Person must have a cause that they are dedicated to. I see no other cause more important then education, and not the education that we have in our schools today, I'm talking about a more comprehensive education that gives every human the life skills and knowledge that is needed to live and be a positive influence.
Health, Happiness and Prosperity is not a dream, it is a goal, and the main goal of a quality and thorough education.

The laptops will be expensive, but if we don't educate humans properly and effectively it will end up costing the world much more then money could ever buy. So this is totally worth the investment. Every Human has questions that need to be answered, and every answer needs to be explained in more then one way so that everyone can understand.
