Patient discussion about educable

Q. Do you want to learn how we got manipulated by some? I noticed an educational video about Asthma. I hope it helps. Listen to eat and read my answer about it. Thank you for your patience.

A. Listen to what the man tells you right at the beginning of this video. "You are not alone... learning to CONTROL the SYMPTOMS of asthma and COPD... therefore more can be done to help you MANAGE YOUR SYMPTOMS and live a fuller life...". Do you hear what they say to you? Do they talk about curing you from Asthma? NO, they tell you to keep your symptoms and to learn to live with it. Are they interested that you get rid of your Asthma? NO, they just want you to keep it that way, but some shity drugs should keep you asthmatic, so that they can earn money with you... Listen exactly to what people tells you. Learn with this simple example the subtle way they pretend to help you, but they are absolutely not interested to cure you! Do you see the problem which is around us with such hypocrites/pretenders? I am grateful for this good bad example. Asthma can be cured, but you should not know about it. Please learn to understand. I thank you for your attention.

Q. Do you want to learn how we got manipulated by some? I noticed an educational video about Asthma here on this site. I hope it helps. Listen to it and read my answer about it. Thank you for your patience. Does it help you to understand?

A. If you find another video or a text and you are not sure about the content, tell me about it and I will study it and present it here to help you understand with the community. In the moment that you start to listen and read between the lines you will got a kick, but a healthy one. We are here to help you and when I can also teach you this way and it helps you, I will do my best.

I am the topic-manager for "bipolar disorder", "depression" and new for "diabetes" too.

Read my answers with two critical eyes, test me, check me, check it out, to become a professional tester and checker in health and other themes. I check always first my doctors before I keep them. But then the distance is for me irrelevant, because such a good doctor is for me very precious!

La didactica no parametral, vista desde Quintar, es una nueva forma de comprension de la realidad educativa desde el reconocimiento del estudiantado y del maestro y maestra como sujetos enteros, desde su enteridad, y en esa medida el proceso educativo debe ir mas alla del simple reconocimiento de su multidimensionalidad, debe abordar esa mutidimensionalidad, intervenirla, construyendo desde lo cognoscitivo, lo afectivo, lo estetico, lo etico y demas dimensiones del sujeto educable. El modelo educativo a distancia no es un escenario aparentemente propicio para esta construccion, un modelo donde la dificultad del encuentro desde lo humano solamente permite un intercambio de saberes, una estructura modelica de transacciones cognoscitivas.
