40159 - Smart education and native language

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Vicky Baklessi

As native language is that which we learn in the most natural way, namely without methodology, in essence we know it verbally before we learn to write it, we use it before we understand its structures, we exploit it without an accent. As if we had learned it through a neural network which makes many attempts before it understands in depth the structures and the substrates, because it began the learning process from zero, namely from the sounds and the noise and not from the meaning. For this reason there was a holistic approach on behalf of our brain and the coding occurred in whole and not directly to the zones which are involved specifically with language. The consequence is that the mother language is more deeply recorded within our brain. So it is good that we exploit it as a first database to set up the explanations of other languages. In this notion the mother language is fundamental in Smart Education and instead of collapsing it with the multitude of all the other ones, we exploit it to find teaching universalities. So foundational bilingualism namely from the beginning, creates different brain structures from the classical learning of two languages successively. In essence we understand that he who is initially bilingual has a double native language with a deep codification. We see these differences with the application Alphago and the application Alphazero after the intermediate of Master. This allows Smart Education to work differently for the continuity in the teaching framework at the higher level.
