paradigm of time within education.

Salman Khan, the creator of Khan Academy has distinctly pointed out the importance of time in education.

Khan has revealed the importance of education in a timely fashion to suit each and every mind. ‘Faster does not necessarily mean better. Learning is an individual time based feature of each human being and each of us will have time variations when understanding concepts.

The Khan Academy and many other online class platforms allow students or members of the public to learn at their own pace. Once cannot rush another’s learning. Perhaps the term ‘learning’ is too broad of a word. There is a fine line between understanding and knowing. Perhaps ‘learning’ is an accumulation of both concepts. One can ‘know’ something but not necessarily understand it and may require more time to fully conceptualize it.

This is where time plays a role in your ‘ownage’ of you development. Beating up yourself because you learn something slower than other just means that there is a variation of ‘the time concept’ relative to others. If one may learn how to do calculus faster than you, perhaps you know how to learn how to create muscle memory related to kicking a soccer ball faster than that same person.

Thus, when you are learning, put away the clock, your watch and the concept of this man-created concept of time and just let your mind be the controller of the pace of which your mind develops.

…tick tock… the clock is ticking and we have the time we need…
