Charting the Course of Teaching and Learning in a Networked World
Graham Bell and Einstein are two brilliant minds of science who struggled due to learning disabilities. Learning disabilities don’t necessarily affect aptitude, yet how students are taught and directed impacts social and educational achievements. Today’s minds are the brilliant scientists, teachers, and mothers of the future.

It is acknowledged that tools help with the "perception" of knowledge. The magnifying glass, the telescope, and the microscope were objects that opened up an entirely new world. It is also acknowledged that people's fingers are too big to examine an amoeba, and people can't just walk up to the moon.
The other biggie in the knowledge game was "the drawing", the recording of information, but further to this was the "sequential" recording of data, which led…
