Laser Information Age: How you can Educate your Visual System with Laser Intelligence and participate in the Emergent Open Resource Based Economy via UNESCO’s Virtual University. By Carlos Concepcion
eBook (PDF): $5.00
Microtrends reported that there are over 28 million college dropouts in the USA; this is more than the entire population of Venezuela (27 million)! People are denied access to higher education... More > because of the financial, cognitive and social problems that were created by incoherent domestic policies that favored corporate interest. The global practice of State Capitalism in the USA created the democratic deficit or inequality that resulted in the huge and growing gap between the wealthy and the poor, between private and public education and between what we know and what we do. MIT's Open CourseWare (a free online University) philosophy of learning by doing with mind and hand is revolutionizing online education and filling all those gaps. Laser Information Age unveils the connectedness of the laser wave world that is emerging all around us and shows how these new lasers are illuminating our collective and individual intelligence, it guides independent online students into this new age.< Less
