    #9 haha @Susan Rooks, I just re-read my comment and my sentence wasn't structured properly. It was supposed to read, "I always type Neice wrong." I usually type Niece. Ok, why isn't grammarly telling me I typed it wrong? It underlined grammarly because I didn't capitalize the word. Now, I'm confused.. neice or niece? And I have been known to type "I have an an apple I need to eat, " well not really the apple part LOL! Occasionally I get things right. I almost missed the typo you shared ;-)

    #8 @Lisa Gallagher, I cannot for the life of me type occassionally right -- oh, snap. There I go again! To me, it looks fine with either two c's or two s's. And there's no spellcheck here to help me. Ocassionally? Occasionally? Yeah, the second one, I think.

    Great one's @Susan Rooks! I don't get those confused but one that comes to mind and I know better... I mix up effect and affect if I'm typing too fast. And, I know this has nothing to do with your post but one word I ALWAYS type wrong, Neice! I swear I'm dyslexic at times.

    #25 Yes @Tausif Mundrawala, most people do not know there is a disconnect. No-one is going around saying, 'I am disconnected from my body" . they are going around saying, "I am anxious, I am overwhelmed, i am busy, I can't find peace or happiness or my creativity." When we connect we can find peace in our body and mind, happiness in the simplest moments, creativity emerges and we can be the calm centre amidst the storm.

    Yes @Tausif Mundrawala #19 all of our senses are working even if we do not notice and sense them as we have become so preoccupied with thinking rationally and with words. when we pay atttention to the other ways our bodies are making sense of the world we can integrate this knowledge with our thinking and generate better ideas, solutions, actions and be more aligned between what we think and say and what our body does. making the connection opens us to new knowledge that is waiting in the wings.

    Senses play a prominent role in expressing our feelings and leading us towards our destiny which is bound to happen as per Almighty's wish. But we need to be self-aware and should be active enough to understand those senses in us. I wish you luck for your future endeavors, Deb Lange.

    As we grow older (and experience a vast multitude of happiness, pain and sorrow) we're always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Call it "gun shy," but we're always wondering when happiness will end and the shit storm will start. It's one thing to embrace pain, but it's another to never let go. Psychiatrists call this the "martyr state" and people can live their whole lives like this. They find a comfort level "waiting for the other shoe to drop." What separates us from other animals (for good or bad) is we can understand pain. We can do something about it. That's part of our evolution. I think our biggest problem is NOT letting go of pain. It creates long periods of distress (and also wars, by the way). At some point, we have to leave the "martyr state." That's really what separates us from other animals.

    Not only relevant but a mandate, @Kevin Pashuk. Having followed a similar path of educational boredom in my youth we work with students with disabilities. 90 % of our time is spent on academic achievements while these students can't socially function in society in a productive way.

    I have found that a little knowledge used effectively is better than lots of knowledge that isn't used. "Agility and adaptability" the ability to take knowledge and generalize it into your current situation, simple in saying, but lost on most.

    My two daughters went through the system. There first four years out of school was adapting to real life. The Rodney Dangerfield, "Back to School" sort of life.

    The juggernaut called education is a beast of many heads and talons. It is very much self-regenerating as folks try and adapt to the new world in which we live. In the one room school house era we had a purpose. Maybe its time we sat back and redefined the purpose. Clearly, knowledge is not the end game. Google and other resources have placed knowledge at our fingertips.

    #2 Absolutely. An interactive environment does the needful which could replace the archaic practice of concentrating only on brighter students and leaving aside the average ones.

    #1 Thanks Tausif. It is one thing to say that we should have individualized learning and another to try and deliver it to a room of 30 students with only one teacher. That is the transformation that can be enabled by technology.

    I thinks one-size-fits-all attitude doesn't work in education as well. A parent should understand the nature of their child and what interests them. Some like to read whereas some learn from illustrations and videos, while some opt for educating their kids in any adventurous way in the form of quizzes and games. This subject is closest to my heart as anyone who is contributing towards someone's intellectual development is actually building an entire universe for that person. Kudos to you, Kevin, for bringing forth this subject.
