RBG VIDEO LESSON ICE BREAKER:
“The Purpose of Knowledge”
“They have allowed us to attend all of the fine academic institutions, but there is something missing. With all that we have learned, we cannot quite put it together to do something to help our people. We have more education than the respected country of Great Britain: over 14,000 Bachelor of Science degrees every year, 775 Master degrees every year, 125 doctorate degrees every year. Every year, we are producing scholarship, but the scholarship is producing nothing for the people. It is because we have been deprived of the knowledge of ourselves.”
From:The Purpose of Knowledge
by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
The Reality of Black Leadership and
Call for a New Educational Paradigm
(RBG Has Answered the Call)
RBG is a new and unique “Afrikan Centered Collaborative Networked Learning (ACCNL)” Precept.
You will quickly notice that RBG Street Scholars Think Tank flows seamlessly across websites and social networks. Presently, we have 20 major websites comprising over 5000 RLOs (Reusable Learning Objects) and media assets all concentricly integrated and linked to hundreds of robust Afrikan-centered websites.
The Wikizine pilots enable you to access and navigate everything without ever having to leave the college. The various integrated curricula that comprise the communiversity represent learning assets which are delivered via electronic dialogue between us (self-directed co-learners and expert tutors / facilitators of Afrikan descent). We all share a common purpose, depend upon each other and are accountable to each other for the collective’s and the school’s academic success. We are an interactive groups in which everyone actively communicates and negotiates higher learning activities with one another within a contextual framework facilitated by online tutors / experts / elders and ancestors. The entire school is about us, by us and for us–Afrikan Peoples Development / socially, politically, economically, educationally and morally.
