This chapter examines aspects of contemporary reality such as dynamic interconnectedness between the self and others and the enmeshment of human and technology logic. Throughout the following chapters, these two conceptual couplings are developed into undulating circularities that pulse through and activate all other circularities of the proposed pedagogical model. Current education methods are considered alienating the learner from their own psychological predispositions and their immediate natural/sociocultural environments. The proposed pedagogical model suggests establishing learning conditions in which the learner can reconnect with him/herself by discovering, extending and strengthening his/her natural abilities through a kindled reconnection with others, remixed with technological tools of knowledge-production and entanglement with their living experiences.
