World History : 3,000 years of world history timelines
Educational Aspects 1

Students today cannot count on finding one smooth career path, because jobs that exist today will change tomorrow. Education will not simply be a prelude to a career, but a lifelong endeavor. The challenge for education will be to find ways of bringing to the process of instruction the passion for discovery that drives research. An important aspect of today's teaching philosophy will be to stimulate the natural curiosity of students to the point whereby the pursuit of knowledge becomes a lot of fun.

The World History Chart will achieve the same result for the study of world history. Synchronoptic views will help to see relationships between seemingly unrelated things, thus provoking a journey of discoveries. A spatial representation of time has obvious educational advantages: history can now be understood by simple perception without the terrible litany of memorizing dates, which makes traditional history the most boring subject at school. But above all, the objections of some educators - that encompassing all the worlds major civilizations is asking too much of memory - is seen to be groundless since world history is no longer learned but viewed.
