Simultaneous Subject Teaching

Learning several different subjects simultaneously and in the right order or sequence will help retain knowledge more easily by way of increased associations and connections, especially when most subjects share common knowledge. This also helps to speed up the learning process. When you're learning to read you should be reading to learn at the same time.

Inter-Disciplinarity involves the combining of two or more academic disciplines into one activity (e.g., a research project). It's about creating something new by crossing boundaries, and thinking across them. It is related to an interdiscipline or an interdisciplinary field, which is an organizational unit that crosses traditional boundaries between academic disciplines or schools of thought, as new needs and professions emerge. Real Life Examples.

Interdiscipline means an organizational unit that involves two or more academic disciplines, but which have the formal criteria of disciplines such as dedicated research journals, conferences and university departments. (Identify the underlying connections between different topics. Identify the key concepts of your topic).

Multi-Disciplinary involves drawing appropriately from multiple disciplines to redefine problems outside normal boundaries and reach solutions based on a new understanding of complex situations. Multi-Tasking.

Polymath is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas. A person who is known to draw on several complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems.

Multipotentiality is the ability of a person to excel in two or more different fields.

Multisensory Learning is when individuals are taught using more than one sense. The senses usually employed in multisensory learning are visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile – VAKT (i.e. seeing, hearing, doing, and touching). Other senses might include smell, taste and balance.

Personalized Education (Differentiated Instruction) Dual n-Back (spaced repetition)

Subdiscipline is a field of study or work that is related to one aspect, but not the whole.

Cross-disciplinary is a general term used to refer to any activity that involves two or more academic disciplines. 

Integrative Learning is integrated lessons that help students make connections across curricula.

Integrated Course
is a course that covers several subjects. Synchronize.

Ontology Learning is the automatic or semi-automatic creation of ontologies, including extracting the corresponding domain's terms and the relationships between the concepts that these terms represent from a corpus of natural language text, and encoding them with an ontology language for easy retrieval. As building ontologies manually is extremely labor-intensive and time-consuming, there is great motivation to automate the process. Typically, the process starts by extracting terms and concepts or noun phrases from plain text using linguistic processors such as part-of-speech tagging and phrase chunking. Then statistical or symbolic techniques are used to extract relation signatures, often based on pattern-based or definition-based hypernym extraction techniques. Ontology in computing is a rigorous and exhaustive organization of some knowledge domain that is usually hierarchical and contains all the relevant entities and their relations. Ontology can also mean the philosophical study of being.

Concurrently are things that happening at the same time and are overlapping in duration.

Corresponding are things that are similar, especially in position or purpose. Be compatible, similar or consistent; coincide in their characteristics. Be equivalent or parallel, in mathematics.

Coincides is to go with, fall together or happen simultaneously or occur at or during the same time. Be the same, meet or intersect. Correspond in nature or in position.

Conjunction is the temporal property of two things happening at the same time. The state of being joined together. An uninflected function word that serves to conjoin words, phrases, clauses or sentences. The grammatical relation between linguistic units (words, phrases or clauses) that are connected by a conjunction. Something that joins or connects

Concerted involves the joint activity of two or more things or people. Synesthesia.

Juggle is to deal with several things simultaneously, sometimes with difficulty and sometimes balancing insecurely. Juggling is to throw, catch, and keep in the air several things simultaneously. To manipulate things by moving around components. The act of rearranging things to sometimes give a misleading impression. Life is a Juggle.

Joint are things united or combined and affecting or involving two or more things.

Unison is occurring together or simultaneously. Batch Processing.

Double Effect refers to two types of consequences that may be produced by a single action. Some actions can have multiple benefits.

Cross-Training involves combining exercises to work various parts of the body. Often one particular activity works certain muscle groups, but not others; cross-training aims to eliminate this imbalance. This training is meant to overcome the shortcomings of one style by practicing another style which is strong in the appropriate area. On the Job Training.

Transdisciplinarity relates to more than one branch of knowledge; interdisciplinary. Connotes a research strategy that crosses many disciplinary boundaries to create a holistic approach. It applies to research efforts focused on problems that cross the boundaries of two or more disciplines, such as research on effective information systems for biomedical research (see bioinformatics), and can refer to concepts or methods that were originally developed by one discipline, but are now used by several others, such as ethnography, a field research method originally developed in anthropology but now widely used by other disciplines. The Belmont Forum elaborated that a transdisciplinary approach is enabling inputs and scoping across scientific and non-scientific stakeholder communities and facilitating a systemic way of addressing a challenge. This includes initiatives that support the capacity building required for the successful transdisciplinary formulation and implementation of research actions.

Multi-Agent System is a computerized system composed of multiple interacting intelligent agents within an environment. Multi-agent systems can be used to solve problems that are difficult or impossible for an individual agent or a monolithic system to solve.

Thematic Approach is a way of teaching and learning, whereby many areas of the curriculum are connected together and integrated within a theme. Thematic Learning is an instructional method of teaching in which emphasis is given on choosing a specific theme for teaching one or many concepts in order to notice the inter-relatedness of various subjects. It is based on integrating variety of information and using it to demonstrate the topic. Benefits: The method connects subjects, topics and themes naturally. Learning opportunity, thus is extended beyond one class, to throughout a whole day or week. Learning becomes a continuing process, which is not limited to books or guidelines prescribed by the curriculum or time bound. The emphasis is not on the product, but the process of learning. The contribution of the learners becomes an essential part of the curriculum. The focus of the group activity is problem solving, critical and creative thinking. It marks the beginning of community of learners. Differentiation into units makes assessment accurate and relevant. The method enhances risk taking factor in the learners, through self-initiated learning activities and first hand experiences. The group consists of active learners, since there is investigation of ideas and concepts, which are a reflection of their inquiries. Outcomes: The learner sees continuous relationship between concepts since one plans and experiences thematic inquiry. The learner understands the relation between topics dealt in the classroom and those one experiences outside, in day-to-day life. Thematic activities make the learner engage into authentic communication. The learner shares one's ideas with others in the group. Interaction within and without the group makes the learner inculcate values of respect and cooperation, thus building peer learning groups. A learner takes responsibility for one's learning. The teacher becomes the facilitator, reduces the role of dispenser of learning. Community for learning develops in the group. The assessment on the part of the facilitator and the learner oneself, becomes continuous.

Phenomenon-Based Learning is where students study a topic or concept in a holistic approach instead of in a subject-based approach.


Association is the state of being connected together. The process of bringing ideas or events together in memory or imagination. A relation resulting from interaction or dependence. A social or business relationship or cooperative link between people or organizations. Analogies.

Association in psychology refers to a mental connection between concepts, events, or mental states that usually stems from specific experiences. Activism.

Associative Learning is the process by which someone learns an association between two stimuli, or a behavior and a stimulus. The two forms of associative learning are classical and operant conditioning. Classical conditioning is when a previously neutral stimulus is repeatedly presented, together with a reflex eliciting stimuli, until eventually the neutral stimulus elicits a response on its own. In operant conditioning, a certain behavior is either reinforced or punished, which alters the probability that the behavior will reoccur. Association in object-oriented programming - Non-Associative Learning.

Certain ideas can reinforce each other and can be linked to one another. Association is a reason why certain information exists in your mind. If information has no purpose, then there is no need or incentive to remember or store that information. This is why using real life examples in teaching helps students to remember and store important information and knowledge.

Correlation is a Reciprocal or Feedback relation between two or more things. A statistical relation between two or more variables such that systematic changes in the value of one variable are accompanied by systematic changes in the other. Coordinated - Patterns - Connotation.

Correlated is when things are mutually related and have a reciprocal relation that is complementary.

Correlation Cause and Effect - Organize - Synthesis - Network

But not every Correlation or Association proves that something or defines that something, or does it accurately explain the reasons why something happened or the reason why something exists or the reason why something's seem connected. Something's are just a coincidence, so we need to be careful and not to assume things just because they are closely related. 

Associative learning allows an individual to acquire an association between a sensory cue and an outcome resulting from a specific response.

Associative learning plays a vital role in the ability to learn new associations that allow human beings to optimally respond to the world around them. Memory Techniques (improving memory).

Word Association is a word game based on the noun phrase word association, meaning "stimulation of an associative pattern by a word" or "the connection and production of other words in response to a given word, done spontaneously as a game, creative technique, or as an evaluation."

Connection is a relation between things or events, as in the case of one causing the other or sharing features with it. The process of bringing ideas or events together in memory or imagination The act of bringing two things into contact, especially for communication. The state of being connected. An instrumentality that connects. Shifting from one form of transportation to another.

Connected is being joined in close association or linked together. Everything is Connected.

Connect is to make a logical or causal connection and join for the purpose of communication. To establish a rapport or relationship or communication with someone. To fasten or put together two or more pieces so as to become joined or united or linked together. Connect can also mean to schedule a place of origin so as to provide continuing service, as in transportation.

Interconnected is a state of being connected reciprocally.

Relative - Relevant

Association Rule Learning is a rule-based machine learning method for discovering interesting relations between variables in large databases.

Relate is to make a logical or causal connection to something that is relevant and has or establishes a relationship to something else. Relate to means to make a connection and understand something. If you can't relate to something or someone that means that you don't understand something or someone, so you cannot make a connection.

Associative Memory is the ability to learn and remember the relationship between unrelated items.

Relational Database - Organizing

Connect the Dots is a metaphor to illustrate an ability or inability to associate one idea with another, to find the "big picture", or salient feature, in a mass of data. Connecting the dots or join the dots is a form of puzzle containing a sequence of numbered dots. When a line is drawn connecting the dots the outline of an object is revealed. The puzzles frequently contain simple line art to enhance the image created or to assist in rendering a complex section of the image. The use of numbers can be replaced with letters or other symbols.

Link Analysis link analysis is a data-analysis technique used to evaluate relationships or connections between nodes. Relationships may be identified among various types of nodes (objects), including organizations, people and transactions. Link analysis has been used for investigation of criminal activity, computer security analysis, search engine optimization, market research, medical research, and art. Network - Monopoly.

Entity-Relationship Model describes interrelated things of interest in a specific domain of knowledge. A basic ER model is composed of entity types (which classify the things of interest) and specifies relationships that can exist between instances of those entity types. Mind Maps.

Concept Map is a diagram that depicts suggested relationships between concepts. It is a graphical tool that instructional designers, engineers, technical writers, and others use to organize and structure knowledge. Brainstorming.

Idea Networking is a list of statements that are reduced into a handful of clusters or categories. The statements might be source from interviews, text, web sites, focus groups, SWOT analysis or community consultation.

Caudate Nucleus is one of the structures that make up the dorsal striatum, which is a component of the basal ganglia. Plays important roles in various other nonmotor functions including procedural learning, associative learning and inhibitory control of action, among other functions. The caudate is also one of the Brain Structures which compose the reward system and functions as part of the cortico–basal ganglia–thalamic loop.

Positive Reinforcement (praise)

Sensemaking is the process by which people give meaning to their collective experiences.

Relevance - Relative

Games and Memory - Ideas and experiences reinforce each other and can be mentally linked to one another.

Memory Consolidation is a category of processes that stabilize a memory trace after its initial acquisition. Consolidation is distinguished into two specific processes, synaptic consolidation, which is synonymous with late-phase long-term potentiation and occurs within the first few hours after learning, and systems consolidation, where hippocampus-dependent memories become independent of the hippocampus over a period of weeks to years. Recently, a third process has become the focus of research, reconsolidation, in which previously-consolidated memories can be made labile again through reactivation of the memory trace.

Language Immersion is when you teach a second language using different subjects such as math, science, social studies and so on and so on.

Parallel Processing

Knowing the Connections between things, and knowing how things are Related, is extremely important. These Associations are the framework of Understanding, and also an important key to Remembering. Having Organized Knowledge is more effective and more efficient then having Fragmented knowledge. You must also show real life examples on how to use knowledge in practice, and not just present knowledge in theory on a piece of paper.

How Schools should Teach Multiple Subjects Simultaneously, while providing students with 21st Century Skills.

Use a Solar Power Kit to teach electric power, physics and science, and so on.

Use a computer Mother Board to teach electronics and how to build and maintain a computer with monitor, and how to build a smartphone, and an electric car. We can use some of the millions of electronics that are thrown away each year.

Use House Building to teach engineering, math, design, art, city management, social intelligence. Also learn how to make shoes, clothes, appliances, furniture, a bicycle, and tools, and other things that people need to live. Also Learn about factories and mass production. So as the student makes all the things they need, they also learn every important school subject at the same time. This way they will have most of the tools they need, as well as the necessary knowledge, information and skills in order to use everything effectively and efficiently, which leaves more time to enjoy life and to explore even more possibilities.

Use Food Growing to teach nutrition, physical health, mental health, environment awareness, chemistry, taste, smell, biology, food preparation, cooking, awareness, focus and discipline, time management, spatial skills, Body skills, love and sharing, economics, geography, and math, and so on.

Use Language Learning to learn communication skills, intelligence, information literacy, teaching and learning methods, and so on. Reading and Learning at the Same time. Teaching subjects together without creating Information Overload.

The schools could be named "Life School" - Real Life Examples

You don't want students saying "When am I ever going to use this?" You want to show students all the areas in life where this knowledge is used, so they know how important this knowledge is, and also easily remember the knowledge that they have acquired because they now have something in their life to relate this knowledge to.

Math is the hidden secret to understanding the world: Roger Antonsen (video and interactive text)

When you learn to read and write you should learn Words that are relevant to your everyday life, words that will help you advance your understanding of yourself and advance your understanding of the world around you. Every subject and lesson should have elements of other subjects and lessons. Simultaneous subject teaching in Logically Ordered Steps. At the same time you are Learning Math you should also be learning Problem Solving and Information Literacy.

Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English is a teaching approach intended for teaching various academic content (such as social studies, science or literature) using the English language to students who are still learning English.

And as you are learning language, reading and writing, you should have the lesson words coincide with the first steps of Core Knowledge that every human needs. Consisting of  words in the lessons that teaches the student about the human condition and the abilities of the human brain. These are the ways I learn. These are the things that influence behavior. These are the joys of life. These are the dangers of lifethese are the things that we have learned so far and these are the mistakes that we that we have made in our past, and so on and so on. Comprehending what Comprehension means. Combining Subjects and Multitasking can save time, and also help keep things interesting. Don't force kids to memorize things that are irrelevant and unimportant, especially at the wrong time in their lives. 

Subjects that Share Common Knowledge

Neurolinguistics is the study of the neural mechanisms in the human brain that control the comprehension, production, and acquisition of language. As an interdisciplinary field, neurolinguistics draws methods and theories from fields such as neuroscience, linguistics, cognitive science, neurobiology, communication disorders, neuropsychology, and computer science.

Journal of Neurolinguistics

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a connection between neurological processes (neuro-), language (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming), and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life.

Redundancy refers to information that is expressed more than once. Use of multiple words to express a single idea in rhetoric.

Language of Thought Hypothesis describes the nature of thought as possessing "language-like" or compositional structure (sometimes known as mentalese). On this view, simple concepts combine in systematic ways (akin to the rules of grammar in language) to build thoughts. In its most basic form, the theory states that thought, like language, has syntax.

Language and Thought - We think in the Language we Speak.

Synchronicity is when events could have meaningful coincidences if they occur with no causal relationship, yet seem to be meaningfully related.

When you Teach a subject or a method, you teach purpose and reasoning at the same time. Knowledge imbedded in the Lesson. So what ever the brain is focused on the student still learns. Meanings with words behind the words and a lesson behind the lesson. This also teaches the brain to be aware of all the questions that need to be asked in order to define the words. Being aware of hidden meanings and learning to look at the whole picture. Like learning the Moral of a Story and similar to having a Parable, Metaphor, Analogy or Allegory.

Neural Reuse: A Fundamental Organizational Principle of the Brain Neural circuits established for one purpose can be put to different uses, often without losing their original functions. Reducing the cognitive load is beneficial as long as the knowledge is valuable and relevant.  (Cortical Parcellation, Neural Partners).

Memory with a Purpose

Modularity of Mind is an idea that the mind is composed of innate neural structures or modules which have distinct established evolutionarily developed functions.

Component-Based Software Engineering is when all system processes are placed into separate components so that all of the data and functions inside each component are semantically related (just as with the contents of classes). Because of this principle, it is often said that components are modular and cohesive, logical and orderly and consistent relation of parts. It is a reuse-based approach to defining, implementing and composing loosely coupled independent components into systems. This practice aims to bring about an equally wide-ranging degree of benefits in both the short-term and the long-term for the software itself and for organizations that sponsor such software.
