A note from KB Jinan:
My work is based on two broad areas of research. One is to understand the damages of modern schooling and the other is to understand the biological basis of cognition/ learning.
There are two somewhat distinct phases to this research. The first phase took for granted the teaching paradigm with the teacher, knowledge and schools as the givens. It dawned on me that modern schooling was set up based on the question ‘how to teach children’. The second phase began on seeing that in indigenous communities there is no teaching but only learning. So the second phase addressed the question ‘how children learn’. This made the crucial difference to the search as the first question involves psychological conditioning and the second question centers around biology and natural propensity.
