Importance of pattern based Education:
All great peeople in Arts like Leonardo Da Vinci, great Mathematicians like Srinivasa Ramanuja or Scientsts like Issac Newton, Albert Einstein, Alan Turing and Richard Feynman or ancient philosophers like Kapila-acharya all had the talent in recongizing patterns. In schools we are taught to recoginize some patterns in various subjects. However, if we knew the key to recognize the Universal pattern of patterns, we could easily understand the complexity of arts, maths, science and philosophy of life.
Patterns are inter-connections at deeper levels. Right from the begining of Universe till now, everything including time follows a pattern. Patterns are the foundation of Arts, Mathematics and Science and pattern based education connects to all the sub-disciplines of Arts, Maths and Sciences and also to the deepest mysteries of life. Understanding the pattern of life helps to lead a high quality of life finding inner peace and happiness.
Truth or reality is a non-contrdicting Universal pattern. Recognizing this Truth is intelligence. Intelligence is pattern recognition which is found in every manifested particle in the universe, in all life forms on Earth in all artistic and scientific creation of man. To create in a patternic form is Art, to discover pattern is Science, to quantify patterns is mathematics and use the patterns to improve quality of life is technology..
The core phiolosophy of Uni5 Education system is to help children discover patterns everywhere and connect it to one's own Self. This pattern of education will blossom creativity in children in all walks and all stages of life.
To make this clear, we bring in selected quotes of very successful people who saw patterns in one or few areas of life.
'Everyone who taps at a keyboard, opening a spreadsheet or a wordprocessing program, is working on an incarnation of a Turing machine,' said Time magazine while naming Alan Turing as one of the 100 most important people of the 20th century. Turing had the gift of recognizing patterns in nature, that laid the foundation for the creation of modern computers. Hence Turing is widely considered to be the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. Biologists now realize Turing pattern recognition not only in chemical reactions but also in biological world. Read Science of Turing patterns
Each pattern describes a problem that occurs over and over again in our environment, and then describes the core of the solution to that problem, in such a way that you can use this solution a million times over, without ever doing it the same way twice, saya [Architect Christopher Alexander 1977]
Patterns can be used to energize the introductory computer science curriculum, making it more efficient, so that more difficult material can be effectively handled earlier than can typically be done with other techniques.- Joseph Bergin. A pattern is given a short, memorable name to allow the technique to be easily communicated between individuals. Students need to practice design at all levels. They also need quick feedback and peer review on early attempts. Most educators recognize now that students need to be exposed to design early. Most also recognize the need for team work and for critical analysis. We eventually need to teach system design, but beginners need program design as well.
If education system could help children to recognize patterns, their learning would be deep and quick.
