Question: How should the studies in integral education be organized for retirees?
Answer: With retirees, it’s not possible to study through television communications, through screens. You need to stand in front of them live so that they can feel you. It’s possible to introduce a combined study system, varying study with a teacher and virtual lessons.
Teaching retirees, the teacher simultaneously chooses from the group who is suitable for teaching. These people are easily and quickly discernible: They usually sit in front and listen to the teacher attentively. Likewise, they immediately sign up to be his helpers, quickly grasp the study material, and within a short time they’re able to give lessons on their own. In addition, we must prepare flyers and newspapers, organize convenient and accessible kits of video materials that will always be with them.
