Who can learn?

So far, in over 5,OOO demonstration projects, no significant differences have been found in the ability of students to learn based on prior school experience, parental involvement, delinquency, socioeconomic level, attitudes, neighborhood values, class size, IQ scores or race.

HARD DATA: THIS IS THE WORK OF AN ATHLETE IN 13 MINUTES.

South America Test Before and After

BEFORE AND AFTER MAPS OF SOUTH AMERICA INCLUDE TRAINING TIME.

The first demonstration of The Neogenesis Method on demand.

The Task: learn the countries of South America and be able to draw a map by total recall without reference to maps, images, multiple choice lists, true/false, lists of countries, notes, clues, feedback or encouragement.

The Result: A+, 1OO% performance, mastery and confidence of 13 countries, 13 placements to critical thinking levels in 13 minutes.

Procedure: First, draw a map of everything you know and label it Before. The index card on the right was drawn with hesitation and frustration by an athlete at a university. This is a blind test. No information about the student was given to the researcher. [The coaching staff explained later that the student was selected because of academic difficulty and learning disability. The student was at risk of losing athletic eligibility for academic reasons.] When asked to fill in the countries, South America was underlined twice and shoved at the researcher. The grade of F and O% was added after the task was completed. No other changes have been made to the maps except to remove the student’s name.

The map on the right labeled After was drawn by the same student, 13 minutes later and is 1OO% correct. During that interval, the student was introduced for the first time to a new hand-held computer, a new method of learning, new hardware, new software and the task. The 13 minutes includes the time to draw both maps and learn the lesson to mastery, to total confidence and to performance levels — to be able to self-correct without feedback and to know for sure the answers are correct.

Internal Technology: The student was then questioned without either map, pointing in the air, and then pointing to the blank Before map. Typical questions that can be answered easily and correctly include: If you are going to fly an airplane from Venezuela to Argentina and back to Surinam and then to Venezuela again, what countries will you cross and it what order? How many land-locked countries are there in South America and what are they? If you were going to drive a car along the coast of South America from French Guiana to Chile and always keep the ocean to your left, what countries would you drive through and in which order? Students can do these exercises in their heads to their surprise, and often, to the amazement of the teachers who know their students and their difficulties with learning, memory, retention and thinking. This level of knowledge and performance does not require reference to textbooks, maps or atlases in order to perform. This performance level is called Internal Technology — the ability to know a subject matter so well you can practice and perform it.

So far, in over 5,OOO demonstration projects,no significant differences have been found in the ability of students to learn based on prior school experience, parental involvement, delinquency, socioeconomic level, attitudes, neighborhood values, class size, IQ scores or race.

Success Today: With The Neogenesis Method, students typically achieve mastery with confidence within thirty minutes, including all training time, whether taught by a researcher or another student who has had a single successful experience. The major findings of a first session are 1] change in expectation of teachers, 2] change in expectation of students, 3] achievement of the highest order (many at-risk students have never made an A+ on a test), 4] shift in self-concept and self-esteem and 5] The Neogenesis Method works with all content that can be put into words.

Challenges: The changes happen too quickly, too soon, for teachers and students to have time to adjust to changing expectations. Emotional reactions dominate the first session. Power struggles can dominate institutional environments. Despite excellent retention results, implementation in institutional settings requires extensive training and certification. To achieve the result in which all students learn (no Bell Curve) requires a specific format for lessons.

Athletes and The Neogenesis Method: Athletes provided with specific curricula to master and Neogenesis learning machines have quickly and reliably demonstrated their abilities to excel academically, to the astonishment of teachers and coaches. In early student driven implementation, athletes rose to the top of the class despite years of mediocre academic performance.

College athletes using Neogenesis learning methods went from a 1.8 GPA to a 3.O GPA in their most difficult area, foreign language, in a single semester. During this same period, no athletes dropped out for academic reasons who were using Neogenesis methods to change performance.

Opportunities: The opportunities for acceleration and academic excellence are immediate and dependent only on the availability of research prototypes. The opportunities for collaborative research projects are immediate and limited to qualified non-profit, education and corporate organizations. In an Olympics year, the opportunities for coaches to work with new methods to apply them to learned physical behavior and training remain unexplored at this time.

Yes, it really works!

The research scientists were the hardest to convince. And even now, after thousands of successful experiences in every kind of environment, we do not know what will happen. We only know that, so far, The Neogenesis Method works. Learning does take place.

Business College Results

At first, Neogenesis didn’t know it was unusual at all. It certainly was not the result they were looking for. They were working on an economic development problem. They were working with their notions that small business survival is more a function of how the brain works than a matter of capitalization. They were working on their ideas that economic systems are not driven by supply and demand cycles, but by ideas. They were perfecting their theories of Blackhole Economics working on the shift to rural economic development.

The results shown are typical for a class learning together. Low grades are related to absences and non-use as opposed to lack of ability. It is not the bell curve everyone expects. First, they don’t know the material. Then after The Neogenesis Method, they do. We wondered, of course, how long the effect would last and how it compared to other methods that also work well.
