Put these unrelated and yet connected ideas together:

1.

“Newton’s work rests on the idea that the physical world works in ways that are measurable, and, therefore, as long as you measure carefully enough you could learn anything about everything.

Quantum physics showed us that parts of the physical world resisted the precision Newton obsessed over. We began to learn that physical things could behave in ways we never thought possible. Ways that defied logic. Subatomic particle movements were messy and unpredictable. Quantum theory taught us that precise measurements can’t exist because the act of measuring something changes its movement. https://collabfund.com/blog/the-theory-of-maybes/

“Despite some efforts within the sector to diversify its ranks, the findings show the average age of college presidents is still around 60 years old, and the percentage of women holding the top job at colleges and universities stands at 33 percent, up about 10 percentage points from 2006. Men outnumber women two to one (67 percent).Apr 14, 2023

“In the past decade or so, secondary schools in several countries have begun including quantum physics as a part of their standard curricula. https://physics.aps.org/articles/v12/s61

“Teaching Quantum physics at the high-school level is challenging, and, consequently, it is limited in many countries.

Phenomena and Principles: Presenting Quantum Physics in a … MDPI https://www.mdpi.com › …

(and my thought here is, “only in the last decade or so?”

I’m being metaphorical here, because the dates don’t line up perfectly, and are messy and measured imprecisely, quite like quantum mechanics:

The past generation lived by Newtonian rules of life.

The next generation lives by Quantum rules.

We need to stop teaching students to live by Newtonian rules, and learn to navigate the quantum world.

It’s not about jobs and bosses and doing what you are told.

It’s not about follow the rules and you will be rewarded.

It’s not about go to college and you will be happy and be successful.

“The dividend yield is easy. We can measure it today. Earnings growth is a little trickier, but we can make a decent estimate. What about the change in valuation multiples? God, who knows. If I’m trying to calculate how much stocks will return between now and 2027, I need to know what kind of mood people will be in in 2027. And no reasonable person can claim to do that. I don’t know what kind of mood I’ll be in tonight, let alone 200 million strangers ten years from now.

Mood?

(March 2023) “However, according to a recent survey of analysts by Bankrate, the median estimate is that the S&P 500 will rise by 11.9% over the next 12 months. This would bring the index to a level of around 4,335. The highest estimate in the survey was for a rise of 21%, while the lowest estimate was for a rise of 2.6%. “Bard the AI”

Are they going to be right or going to be wrong? I don’t know.

And Mood?

If the stock market drops by half this morning, how do I feel? Disappointed. Regret that I didn’t go all into cash.

If the stock market doubles this morning, how do I feel? Disappointed. Regret that I didn’t go all into stocks.

I can’t know which one might happen, so if it’s 50/50 for either, I’m good in the position I’m in right now.

I’m in a good place if either happens.

What are the odds that each might happen? Aparantly according to Bard the AI,

The country’s mood remains positive: 40%

The country’s mood becomes more negative: 30%

The country’s mood fluctuates: 30%

That’s not very helpful.

Well, the market has dropped by 50% in my lifetime. The market has doubled in my lifetime.

What are the odds that one or the other might happen in the next 30 years – and when? Who can predict? Not me.

Maybe Warren Buffet? That’s why I invest some of my money in his company.

But I’m heading off topic.

Put these thoughts of quantum mechanics and finances in line with thoughts of quantum mechanics in education.

I can’t predict the outcome of any one student. What do I teach each student if I don’t know the Newtonian version of the student. I need to work through the quantum versions of the students.

(testing a new speech to text program)

What is the quantum version of education? it turns into probabilities of

what the student needs and what to teach them. how fast. what projects to

work on. what subjects to cover.

I don’t know what it looks like. how do we

figure that out. do I just teach them the same things that we’ve always

taught in the past, same skills. do we teach them new things. do we teach

them how to figure things out. do we teach them how to adapt to an

ever-changing environment. do we teach them about probabilities and

possibilities instead of past expectations?

Q: What is the quantum version of education?

A: Quantum education is a new approach to learning that is based on the principles of quantum mechanics. It is designed to help students think more creatively and solve problems in new and innovative ways.

Quantum education is still in its early stages, but it has the potential to revolutionize the way we learn. Some of the key features of quantum education include:

A focus on interdisciplinary thinking: Quantum education encourages students to think across different disciplines and to see connections between seemingly unrelated concepts.

An emphasis on problem-solving: Quantum education teaches students how to solve problems in new and creative ways.

A focus on experiential learning: Quantum education emphasizes hands-on learning and giving students the opportunity to apply what they are learning in real-world situations.

A focus on collaboration: Quantum education encourages students to collaborate with each other and to share their ideas.

Quantum education is still a new concept, but it has the potential to change the way we learn. By teaching students how to think more creatively and solve problems in new and innovative ways, quantum education can help students prepare for the challenges of the 21st century.

Here are some examples of how quantum education can be applied in the classroom:

Using quantum mechanics to teach probability and statistics: Quantum mechanics is a probabilistic theory, so it can be used to teach students about probability and statistics. For example, students could learn about how to calculate the probability of an event happening, or how to analyze data using statistical methods.

Using quantum mechanics to teach computer science: Quantum mechanics can also be used to teach computer science. For example, students could learn about how quantum computers work, or how to develop quantum algorithms.

Using quantum mechanics to teach physics: Quantum mechanics is a fundamental theory of physics, so it can be used to teach students about the nature of reality. For example, students could learn about how quantum mechanics explains the behavior of atoms and molecules, or how it can be used to develop new technologies.

Quantum education is a new and exciting field, and it is still evolving. However, it has the potential to revolutionize the way we learn and to prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century.

We have been teaching quantum education in the theater for years.

Interdisciplinary thinking, problem-solving, experiential learning, collaboration.

That’s us right there.

We combine a diverse group of people and a variety of different things, to create magic. We prototype every day. It’s one big problem to solve and a million small ones, all rolled up into one big production. And boy do we make a production out of it.

We learn by doing and experience. And, do it all with a huge sense of collaboration (the good kind).

My next course to teach wants to be “Quantum Education in Life and Entertainment”
