LED accelerator: A proposed dual system within U.S. Education that will foster high-level creative thinkers along with skill sets that can ultimately develop breakthrough innovators.

A New Paradigm On Education

“A society's competitive advantage will come not from how well its schools teach the multiplication and periodic tables, but from how well they stimulate imagination and creativity.” – Einstein

Leadership  Empowering  Diversity

Individualized Project Based Learning will be the future of U.S. Education and is the best way to stimulate creativity. But educators cannot explain, as a process, how to establish and evolve Project Based Learning. Educators will therefore cautiously experiment and waste generations of studentsí lives until a process starts to develop. LED accelerator will break this bottleneck by being a dual system within U.S. Education that will develop high-level creative thinkers.

LED accelerator shares the goals of other dual systems like Xerox, PARC, DARPA and Google X that were created to be vertically intensive within their respective parent organization. The difference is that malleable brains of students in this system are simultaneously being wired for adaptive algorithms by their experiences. LED accelerator students will collaborate and compete while using tools that exist in the current world to manifest the products and services they intuitively see existing in the future world. The hyper competitive students within each LED accelerator school and district will continually adopt best practices to evolve their culture while striving to pursue breakthrough projects.

Continually changing outcomes will provide for educators evidence-based data on what aspects of LED accelerator can be implemented in the general curriculum. LED accelerator will therefore continually advance the entire U.S. Education system alongside evolving social, economic and government needs.

A New Paradigm On The Mind

"The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why."  - Einstein

While Neuroscience is making progress in understanding the human brain and intelligence, there is comparatively little progress in understanding the mind. Neuroscientists have no serious model of how the mind functions. The widespread assumption is that somehow millions of neurons fire in the brain to produce the mind. They equate brain with mind and intelligence with consciousness, even though they’re separate things. As long as this confusion exists, there can be no authentic discussion on how to stimulate creativity within education. So a new paradigm on the mind needs to be understood first.
