Exercise is easy and there are things that we can learn on our own, for example jogging will give a person larger leg muscles. In a way all the world’s joggers are running a massive experiment for you, results of which you can see with our own eyes.

Who may have no idea what he is talking about, or how long it would take, and how long the exercise must last. Listen or look at athletes, that...

I am nearing the completion of my latest program, it generates a simple website based on folders with text files. I had a lot of fun writing it, there are many little programming gems that can make code fascinating. They are all too strange to describe, but they are like little creatures, each from a different galaxy. They are called libraries, and when you plug them into your program, you inherit the functionality within. There is also this cute little programming style, where you just write everything...

The Students Know

The Students Know

Furkies Purrkies #932

In computer programming we get shame-free instant feedback, whatever is not understood, will soon reveal it self, and guide the student. This is a form of testing, but more than that it is instant feedback, without shame. Unlike tests there are no threats of being held back here, of needing to repeat the class, or being punished in some other way. Teachers often say that tests and grades are a form of motivation, and that does make sense in ineffective or fake schools. Ineffective education is...

I’ve been diagramming since 6th grade, my first real program diagram was about a lottery simulation. The bullies saw me pacing up and down the corridor, and laughed when I got a low graded. (For being accused of cheating, ...of copying my program from elsewhere.) But, I navigated the heck out of that thing, I later bought a Simon's BASIC book with my little savings.

I’ve been making web pages, for ages. I have learned so much, just by creating buttons and such. I just started a looking at code, and I learned a boat load. Learning was never too bad, and I even just used notepad. At first I learned HTML and ASP, but then Perl worked hard on the server for me. It was a beautiful adventure in code as I jumped to PHP, ActionScript, Java, and now node. It was all so fascinating, that I never stopped creating. If you make programming your aim, know that it is like a fun...

Art Of Knowledge; Or, School Assesses Your Memorization Because It Cannot Create Comprehension

Furkies Purrkies #928

Comprehension requires correct materials, which is to say materials structured around easy on-ramps. We are not mechanical robots, we are poets and dreamers, we need captivating access to a subject. Learning for real requires individualized instruction, which is respectful of sequence that agrees with the student. And moves at the correct pace that isn't overwhelming, at a pace that the student is comfortable with. Teaching and Learning both belong to the same form of art, it is the Art Of Knowledge. Up...

Real education is just adventure, just marching around and doing things you like. But it is inconvenient, because how many computers do you need? How many museums do you need to visit, and why don’t you just wait until you are old enough to drive. But real education is so important, that you should never feel bad about it. You must keep learning new things, and take care of all your talents. You have to revisit them often, and each time you will learn more. Narrated books from the library, are...

A Simple Way To Become A Powerful Programmer; Or Learning Programming The Right Way

Furkies Purrkies #925

Let me tell you in the first paragraph, use a slow computer. Slow computers are almost always single board computers (SBC), little over the size of a credit card. They should come in a kit an cost less than $200 dollars, buy from the company that makes the kit, as others may be artificially inflating prices. You should do your own research, but the computer that comes to my mind, is called the Raspberry PI. More specifically, "CanaKit Raspberry Pi 4 8GB EXTREME Kit". This is priced at $169.95, I think...
