Quantum edumacation

Big ideas in education: Quantum mechanics and education paradigms
Current education paradigms were informed by the classical Newtonian worldview of brain functioning in which the mind is simply the physical activity of the brain, and our thoughts cannot have any effect upon the physical world. However, researchers in the field of quantum mechanics found that the outcomes of certain subatomic experiments are determined by the consciousness of the observer, leading philosophers to propose that the observed and the observer are linked. Quantum mechanics also demonstrates that distant minds may behave in simultaneous correlational ways, in the absence of being linked through any known energetic signal. Further, researchers in this field propose that an external memory space is operating in the human brain, suggesting that this proposed external memory space may be a quantum field surrounding the brain and interacting with other fields, generating a global mental field of information flow. This article proposes that current education paradigms, which have been informed by a classical Newtonian physics worldview may need to be expanded to include a quantum mechanics worldview. The author seeks to understand if, and how, quantum mechanics could inform education practices, theories and paradigms and invites discussion, debate and speculation on the implications this would have for education systems.

External memory space? Is that what we used to call morphic resonance?

"...determined by the consciousness of the observer" Bzzzt. No.

Next.

Last I saw it was the homeopaths complaining that medicine was ignoring quantum mechanics by maintaining a Newtonian paradigm.

Oh apart from James Fell claiming in his latest book that his use of "quantum leap" was anything other than a fairly sh.t metaphor.

Education "theory" seems to attract woosters. I'm glad I'm no longer working because at some point staff are going to have to keep a straight face and their opinions to themselves when a member of SLT regurgitates this bollocks.
And remember that if you botch the exit, the carnival of reaction may be coming to a town near you.
