Two sayings about the Internet

Viewed 413 times 2018-4-10 22:55 |Personal category:education|System category:News

Many nature and social theories were invented by foreigners and we Chinese should translate their original works with more accurate words, specially for the key-terms!  For an example: 
There are two versions of translation for the same word ‘Internet’:  the first one is ‘因特网’ with 因特 sounding like inter and 网 as ‘net'; the second one is ’互联网‘ which means ’connecting-each-other-net‘. ----------- I think the latter one is more reasonable for the true meaning of the modern communication system on which everyone looks like the knot-point of the invisible net talking through the wire-threads!

  • Persuade people to produce rubbish as less as possible! 2018-7-14 22:16

    Rubbish are treasures in the wrong position where you place them!

  • From 'official‘ to teacher 2018-7-14 20:14

    Your detailed note focuses on educating toddlers instead of children of all ages!
    May I say that you are not familiar with the first hand materials on Chinese school-teaching? In class teachers and students pay too much attention to the points of knowledge and try to swallow down each word of the text without digestion, ignoring the internal logical connections among the knowledge points!
    Teachers must teach students how to think through knowledge learning!  Book knowledge is limited and useless in most case while thinking ability is the sharpness of  your brain-knife-edge that determines how clever you are for real problem-solving!
    In short words the way of thinking is more important than the fruit of brain-production (knowledge)!
    Fishing skill is more valuable than a basket of fish!
    So let children become little thinker first,then possible for a great thinker when they grow up!
