The Misinformation Effect

Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky Interview

Noam Chomsky discusses the evolution of language and lays out the biolinguistic perspective — the idea that a human being’s language represents a state of some component of the mind. The important contribution Chomsky is making here is about “Biolinguistics.” Because there is a genetic “biological” foundation to communication, understanding how our biology influences our language development and use will help us better master communication. The reason I post it here is for the community to find stuff in this Noam Chomsky Interview that we can use to add to our overall community learning. Updated Feb. 2024.

A Unique 21st Century Approach to Learning and Teaching

Lifelong & Personalized Learning

Classes have no end date.  Once enrolled in a class, you stay enrolled for your lifetime, you can always go back and refresh your learning or see what is new on the topic.  Also, you are provided a “Personal Dashboard” that changes as the class is updated or your learning needs change.

Educational Blockchains

We use A-Keys and Blockchains to help ensure the underlying information is verified and your content is protected.  Blockchains contain verifications and the “Authority” of the verifier, allowing the learner to better value information.

Cloud Based Learning Library

We use the latest Artificial Intelligence algorithms to aggregate & curate content from internal & external sources. This creates a powerful real-time repository for all the potential learning available to you.  The Learning Library is personalized for the learner and updated dynamically to deliver the best learning at the best time.

Knowledge and testing Separation

Knowledge Assessment Only As Needed

We separate knowledge acquisition from knowledge assessment.  This greatly reduces the cost of learning, because you then only test for those critical skills that you need to be sure you’ve mastered.  It also reduces instructor biases in the assessment process.

Instant Access to the Most Actionable Learning

Users connected to the our Learning Network have instant access to a growing wealth of information.

Why we do it

Reason one

Because we believe there is just too much information for only one person to process. We need ALL of us to share information in ways it benefits us ALL.

Reason two

Confirmation Bias, Selective Perception, Motivated Reasoning, and Linguistic/Cultural Bias are things that can affect our thinking. We need information from different viewpoints so we can improve our aggregate critical thinking skills.

Still not convinced? Here is another one:

Reason three

Because we believe education can and should be cheaper.  We want to reduce the net cost to the community to stay current and teach knowledge and wisdom to the next generations.
