Creating Real Change In America's K-12 Education

Only The Method Matters for Memory Capacity!

Just in case you did not receive or review our newsletter or blog post from earlier this week: USA SNAPSHOTS: How Many Photos on your phone? Smartphone users have on average 389 photos on their device. (If you would like to read and comment Click Here!)

    So what’s the point to be understood? In 1986 it was considered a technology break-through for one 3.5″ diskette to hold 1.4 mega-bites of data. Today, the average photo on my Samsung Note 3 is 4MP. Soon, I’ll be purchasing Samsung’s Note 7 which includes a 12MP rear camera and 5MP front camera so, on average, one 8MP photo would require 6 high-density diskettes for memory capacity!

    Would you consider that an incredible advancement in technology with huge benefits?

    Now, contrast that with the memory capacity of today’s K-12 students.

   In over 30 years, since I attended K-12 Public Education in Wisconsin where I greatly struggled to remember all the information I was required to remember to pass tests so I could move on to the next grade, there’s been 0 advancement in a student’s capacity to store information for later recall to pass tests. That’s 1 of the 2 major points of CreateK12Change

    To create real change in America this is where we begin: Students must learn How-To-Memorize before they try their very best to memorize. Students must learn How-To-Create before they try their very best to create. “Only the method matters.” – W. Edwards Deming

BRONZE: Jennifer L. 3,883 SILVER: Cheryl J. 5,530  GOLD: April K. 6,384 photos! I’m quite sure we can learn something from all 3 ladies! And from Chris: Floppy is 1.44mb.

    Currently, I use iDrive to backup my precious photos. April uses GooglePhotos. What do you use?!

    A comment from you would be greatly appreciated. – Russell
