Cultivation (Educating) of Individuals

Arts: Representation (arts), the depiction and ethical concerns of construction in visual arts and literature.

Social Sciences: Social representation is a stock of values, ideas, beliefs, and practices that are shared among the members of groups and communities.

Science: Representation (psychology), a hypothetical ‘internal’ cognitive symbol that represents external reality.

Agency of external form is related to ‘experiment’. The agency of external forms determine/results in representation. Representation then can result in the production of cultural artifacts (via objects in intellect), increasingly so within the digital domain (hence artifacts reject representation, as representation is subjective?). The digital domain is both representative of existent, and digital cultures, cultivated by both existent and digital artifacts. Learning / understanding is then related to the representation of artifacts; learning / understanding being demonstrated by production of artifacts, intellectual or existent, within the physical domain, or digital domain.

Are artifacts more numerous ‘apparent’ within the digital domain, and do artifacts in the digital domain appear to have greater powers of representation (related to collaboration and individual concern). So is, what is ‘apparent’, closer to representation? If so, artifacts in the digital domain must have closer relation to learning and understanding (by being apparent). The ‘agency’ of object must then be made apparent, by physico-psychical organization (experiment), and then demonstrated (or understood) by production of artifacts. Agency must then be made visible by ordering and re-ordering of artifacts ‘assemblages’, for both student and teacher (is this a whole new theory of education, or the emperor’s new clothes?).
