About the book "Educational blast"
Question
Elena

Vladimir Mikhailovich, good afternoon! Do you consider the educational blast only a social project? Didn`t you write the book for the sake of earning?

Answer

1. Of course, the book Educational Blast is a model and technology of the social education project of the future. Many of the fragments from the book are already being used by specialists at their schools, lessons, methods and ideas. Thus, the former education system is undermined, and with the help of a chain reaction, a new system of education appears. So that’s all true.

I was very surprised by your self-assured claim, described in the book “Educational Blast”.
The question has arisen — have you tried all the techniques «on yourself» or just operate with beautiful words and figures?

It is impossible just to take the educational system, which was built for centuries, and turn it upside down. Even if it is possible, the question is whether it is necessary.

Answer

1. The «Educational system with a human face» developed by me is intended only for those people who are bored with the current educational system. Those who are quite satisfied with the current state of affairs in education have no need to read my books. There, in the book it is written: «it is dedicated to the victims of the educational system».

2. All innovations, of course, have been tested. And the content of knowledge in the Hypermarket, and the coaches, the system of diverse lessons and the system of results, and 5-star status and funding, etc have been tested too.
The book was written relying on 25-year experience and it inspired millions of teachers and students in 45 countries. Enter the title of this book in Google and see how many links it has. I’m not saying that I conduct dozens of Master classes on this topic in different countries at the request of the educators.

3. I’m not going «just to take it … and turn it upside down». I understand that the educational system in the whole world is very conservative. Therefore, on the contrary, in the book (and already in life), pilot projects are being implemented. Without any pressure from above.

4. There is one example. «The inventor of the» mobile phone» did not impose his invention on the whole world. Some people still ask: «What’s wrong with an ordinary landline phone?» The correct answer is: «nothing is bad.» An ordinary landline phone is very good. Only it has no future. The future is for another type of telephone devices. There is the same situation with education.
But those who like, can continue to use only landline phone. And this is normal. The main thing is that there should be a choice.

Vladimir Mihajlovich, I got a picture from your book — Educational Blast about the social order. I considered and thought for a long time. So is it possible to create a school where all students, all parents and teachers will be happy? Or is it utopia? P.S. By the way, I`ve found your book!

Answer

1. Of course, it is possible.

2. In the world, there are many things that appeal to all sides (manufacturers, consumers, governments), for example, some: cars, houses, clothes, food, movies, resorts, etc.). Just no one previously set such a task for education.

About the pyramids
Question
Onix

Vladimir Mikhailovich, is there really no one else in the world, who collects pyramids? And if I start, won`t you be offended?

Answer

1. When I applied to the Guinness Book of Records to register this record — the world’s largest collection of pyramids, they issued me this certificate not immediately. They checked this information for a whole year, conducting a real research. And in the end they found out that really there was nobody who collected pyramids.

2. What offence can there be – do collect. We will exchange our exhibits.

Vladimir Mikhailovich, good afternoon! Recently I came from Mexico and I`m still under the impression! Especially from the Mayan pyramids. What the guides say is interesting, but… But there is really some kind of special power felt in this place! And do your exhibits from the collection have some interesting supernatural properties?

Answer

1. Yes, when they are all together, and there are already 1300 of them, then at some moments subtle sensations arise.

2. Individual exhibits have their own incredible history that takes the breath away. Especially when the acquisition of a unique pyramid was accompanied with a rare history associated with it.

3. In my collection there are pyramids from all continents, but Mexican ones have a strong charisma, if you can say so about the pyramids.

When reforming a certain sphere or part of a sphere, for some reason, they always start with legislation. Although this is does not guarantee changes. What is your idea? What is it necessary to begin with to change any sphere of a society, whether it is economy, ecology or art?

Answer

1. It is necessary: to set a task, allocate resources, show will and determination and firmly achieve the final result. And it is desirable to come up with some fresh idea, so that the reforms were not carried out shockingly, but with a smile and pleasure.

2. I’ll tell you a story. Six hundred years ago Italian king Lorenzo the Magnificent discovered that the treasury was empty, trade with other countries was extinguished, and set the task to achieve the prosperity of Italy with the help of the following twomover.

He issued a decree that every citizen who enters the country (either local or stranger) must bring some work of art or otherwise they simply did not let them in. And so, pictures, sculptures, vases, necklaces, rings, furniture flowed to Italy from all over the world. At that time some of these things were expensive, some were not very good, but as a result there were a lot of things. Moreover, it gave impetus to the Italian masters to improve their art.

The idea of the twomover was that simple possession of these treasures was not enough (what to do with them?). But the rumor (Lorenzo initiated it) that Italy had unbelievable treasures spread all over the world! And caravans of merchants and pilgrims flowed there, raising the country from the ruins and fabulously enriching it. That’s how one clever twomover led to the prosperity of the «Romans».

Thus, in just 40 years, Italy became the owner of 70% of the world’s stock of works of art. And now this figure is preserved. And by the way, the descendants gave him the prefix «Magnificent» for his phenomenal contribution to the collection of world masterpieces.

Do you think that world peace is a utopia? Is there a chance to stop wars and global conflicts completely?

Answer

1. Yes, world peace is a utopia. I’ll tell you a story.

2. One of the most recent experiences of creating an ideal and democratic city is Auroville (which is a wonderful name!). And it is in India. And where else! It is a country of meditation, yoga, vegetarianism and canonical peace.

Bengali philosopher Sri Aurobindo, together with French philosopher Mira Alfassa tried to create an ideal city in 1968. Apparently, they wanted to prove the non-utopian nature of the city of the Sun by Tommaso Campanella.

People from all over the world were invited to live in this city. It was built according to the laws of the Galaxy — the buildings were arranged in concentric circles from the center. Despite the aridity of this region, factories and industries, infrastructure and universities, schools and plantations were organized. Perhaps, something good would have resulted from this venture, if the inhabitants hadn`t wanted … to deify Mira — the founder of this city.

This wish ruined everything, as the natural balance was disturbed.

The humanity has been caught in the same trap many times, when deification of one person led to the imbalance of the whole system.

The goal was false here too: instead of steady expansion of everything good according to the law of necessary diversity there was exaltation of one person only. And … it led to a collapse. Now there are ruins, dirt and homeless people.

Vladimir, good evening! Curiously, does edufuture.biz have opponents? Directors of schools, for example, who do not want to make life easier for teachers? Or the publishers of textbooks?

Answer

1. No, it does not. Everyone is happy and satisfied. They are already enjoying it in 58 countries. Moreover, according to our information, many sites even steal it, which, of course, is not very good, but it shows that they do not borrow bad things.

2. As for publishing houses, there is now such a crisis with the publication of textbooks, with their underfunding, as well as the position (and orders) of the ministry about switching to electronic media and textbooks, that there are no problems either.
