New Era School Initiative (NESI) Links

A Learners' View (ALV) Is Of Choices On The Shortest and Fastest Path To Learning, The Oxygen Of Social Life.

NEW ERA SCHOOL INITIATIVE (NESI) is a fictionalized account of real uses of a learners' view (ALV) in lessons and uses of advancing electronic communication devices in PreK12 schools. Each technology applies experimental empirical behavioral and social science research results.

Normal (sometimes called Normsville) Unified School District in Normal (sometimes called Normsville), California and Landgrant (sometimes called Normal or Normsville) University in Normal, California are fictionalized locations of real enterprises that have and are accelerating, increasing, and deepening (AIDing) learning dramatically and promptly. They have studied and reported these efforts objectively and systematically.


  1. Press Release. Illustrates discussions when deciding to use ALV to organize instruction and curricula that accelerates the mount and increases rates of learning promptly and dramatically. NESI offers students a complete program of study in six academic years that meets all state academic standards from kindergarten through 12th grade. Students and faculty use Tablet and other mobile PCs with available learning packages to earn a high school diploma.
  2. Interview 1 about accelerated learning with Dr. W.E. Doynit. Addresses real, common questions raised by educators and others about accelerating learning through efforts like the New Era School Initiative (NESI), including discussion of Tablet PCs, learning efficiency, learning rates, learning losses, persuasive empirical data, and all students can earn a high school diploma.
  3. Interview 1 Part 2 with Dr. W.E. Doynit. Continues the series of observations about accelerated learning by discussing learning efficiency, including comments about 21st Century Learning, creativity, learning as adoption of behavior patterns, Tablet PCs as state-of-the-art learning tools, and Tablet based automated lessons.
  4. Interview 1 Part 3 with Dr. W.E. Doynit. Continues the discussion of accelerated learning and learning efficiency, including measurement of efficiency, preservice preparation, willingness of personnel to participate, and educator malpractice.
  5. Interview 1 Part 4 with Dr. W.E. Doynit. Includes discussions of educator malpractice, world class and classic learning, funding Tablet PCs, and increased learner benefits.
  6. NESI Conversation 2 Doynit on School Reform. Extends descriptions in Interview 1 of how to accelerate learning dramatically by increasing learning efficiency rates with and without Tablet and other mobile PCs; includes three essential principles of school reform – instructional-failure-not-an-option, a learners’ view, and count something; as well as discussing teachers’ backgrounds.
  7. NESI Conversation 3 Calculating Learning Efficiency. Introduces a sample of ways learning analysts calculate learning efficiency.
  8. NESI Conversation 4 Doynit on Learning Risks. Describing learning risks, instructional failure, learning analysis frames, school superintendent as master teacher in part by distinguishing between learning and education, theories of cognition, etc. and observation of learning, as well as responding to criticisms from educators and others.
  9. NESI Conversation 5 Learning Risks. Continues descriptions of learning risks by clarifying NESI purposes, Decisive School defined, risks of failure, Tablet PC uses, The NESI Conjecture.
  10. NESI Conversation 6 School Reform rev. 2. Comments about school reform addressed in NESI Conversation 2: Doynit on School Reform, and the "Yes, but ..." strategy of rationing learning.
  11. NESI Conversation 7 Tablet PC Learning Research. Responses to Robert Reed’s question about the status of mobile PC research addressed in NESI Conversation 2: Doynit on School Reform; research program purpose; research program progress; A Learning Efficiency Analysis Paradigm (aLEAP); learning efficiency; learning analyst; rationed learning.
  12. NESI Conversation 8 . More responses to Robert Reed’s comments about lack of teacher willingness to accept NESI (see NESI Conversation 2: Doynit on School Reform); teachers; teaching to accelerate learning promptly; a case for NESI; conflicts of interest; and “schoolhouse corruption.”
  13. NESI Conversation 9 . (Duplicate of unedited Conversation 8 incorrectly labeled as Conversation 9; will correct as soon as possible.)
  14. NESI Conversation 10: Rationed Learning...Yes but... Report Revisited. Dr. Bonnie Doowrite, Dr. I. T. Benn-Dunn, Ms. Donna Pahl (Wilkinson), and Dr. W. E. Doynit review the report Rationed Learning: A Conspiracy of ‘Yes, but … ' Doynit cited this report in the proposal to open the New Era School Initiative (NESI) charter school.
  15. NESI Conversation 11: Teachers' Conflicts of Interest Ration Learning. Dr. W.E. Doynit describes how teacher choices can result in conflicts of interest and other “schoolhouse corruption” that reduce student learning. It details use of the learning code as part of academic performance management with and without Tablet and other mobile PCs.
