value debate 1.1; if you succeeded over a generation of breaking cycles of illiteracy and infant mortality, how much does the opportunity accelerate a generation later now that many a rural area that previously had no communications now is fully connected by mobile/e -(we'll return to celebrate this in week 5)
value debate 2 - what the wealthiest people in cities regards as academic training may have no relevance to job creation in villages - this was first understood by Gandhi- why is it that over 100 years later most of our world shows that there have been few advances in vocational training and hybrid teenager apprenticeships
-Sir Fazle Abed was voted as inaugural hall of fame winner at WISE oscars of education seen as learning for a living? is there any country in 21st Centiry where it will remain true that majority of jobs comes come about by youth passing exxaminations and waiting for employers to offer them a job?
exactly what information needs to be in a 12 minute presentation of a microfranchise so that communities desperating neding a solution to a similar challenge can work out whether this particular franchsies is openly replicable
The Economist first predicted in early 1980s that 30000 microfranchise solutions would need to be identified and massively celebrated if humanity was to sustain a global vilage network planet by applying these franchises was to :
ensure sustainability of every community on the planet
unite human race in celebrating achievement of millennium goals
help make 2010s the most productive , sustainable and heroic time for youth all ove the planet http://www.wholeplanet.tv
are politicians and the macroeconomists they hire helping or hindering this collaboration search in places that matter most to you?
when milllennium goal summits started to be hosted annualy from 1997, it was thought that Bangladeshi microcredit was a system design worth everyone getting to know. apart from this mooc can you recommend any 12 minute presentaions on exactly how the models of bangaldeshi microcredit worked before mobiles came to the villages?
true of false- in the original microcredit models, the design of microcredits was never separated from job-creating training

sciplinary research at the intersection of the learning sciences and computer science. Inspired by the emergence of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and the accompanying huge shift in thinking about education, this conference was created by ACM as a new scholarly venue and key focal point for the review and presentation of the highest quality research on how learning and teaching can change and improve when done at scale.
"Learning at Scale" refers to new approaches for students to learn and for teachers to teach, when engaging large numbers of students, either in a face-to-face setting or remotely, whether synchronous or asynchronous, with the requirement that the techniques involve large numbers of students (where "large" is preferably thousands of students, but can also apply to hundreds in in-person settings). Topics include, but are not limited to: Usability Studies, Tools for Automated Feedback and Grading, Learning Analytics, Analysis of Log Data, Studies of Application of Existing Learning Theory, Investigation of Student Behavior and Correlation with Learning Outcomes, New Learning and Teaching Techniques at Scale.

The UK daughter Ophelia Dahl of the famous author Roalhd Dahl
Both Paul and Jim came from cultures "live your life for eternity" ; ; they met in Boston circa 1987 while Farmer was commuting between Haiti (where he had previously met Ophelia and started serving the poorest) and Harvard where he was taking his medical degree..
POP model of Partners in Health is the only model known to us where young world class medics have seen their calling as living with the poorest, aiming to solve their system challenges as well as health needs, and revelled in every way new technology could benefit poorest first. Paul Farmer goes further in explaining how POP culture of the kind Perui's Catholic faith practice orginator (since 1968) Father Gutierrez empowers joy something that young professionals seeing life and death of the poorest for the first time need a lot of support to mix such emnotional intelligences as love, hope, courage and joy.
I has been in delivering hope after presence at some of the developing world;s greatest challenges that PIH has attracted transfornational investment
In the peru of the late 1990s KIm helped pioneer local treatment of drug resisatnt TB but by making the case that TB and HIV could disatrously impact each other PIH was celebrated on the world stage and by investirs such as George Soros who wanted Kin's approach to be extended to Russuan Prisons. later when the earthquaje struck Haitia, PIH had bedome trusted to be the natiral choice to rebuild and henceforth pown the etaching hospital the quake had destroyed. see what Farmer has built
Through the 2000s Jim Kim started connecting movements of global health such as those needed to change pharma company policy on prices in the innovation of HIV abti-virals; he also befriemded Harvards doyen of value chain strategy Micael Porter persuading him for almsot the first time to remap a whole global market sectors social value chain integrated around POP. These days Boston stiudents join not only in PIH operations but various networks such as YPChronic making case for life-saving drugs affordability and universal access . Boston offers one of the few ecosystems in western world that is challenging paradigm of get bigger and more expensive
By 1984 The Economist was predicting one generation would become more connected by mobile networks than separated by history's distance. If continuing since 1946 to double spends on global village communications technologies was to sustain millennials, then knowledge sectors like health services should come down in cost
Looked back from 2015 the few other places that took on The Economist's challenge trained community health workers for the vilages but dindnt sned out world class doctors from the outset.
To see how this system was designed see BRAC where the foundations of women developing a poorest nation depended on the model originated in Bangladesh,. Here grassroots community health networking begot trust inc vlillage mothers to bank for the poor and invest in education of their children. In particular through knowhow networked advances in infant health such as oral rehydration mothers could plan smaller famjlies with rising health for their children and themselves
what if from age 9 up open space was as much a literacy as any other primary literacy
if jack ma and sir fazle abeds ideas were accessible (number 1 web link) to youth who could openly quiz educators - how could that change things- if youth were freed by kalams rule what would happen - tear up any non-sustainable curriculum (deadline india 2020)
the two biggest changes we need to navigate require experiential learning by adolescents
turning community green- coding for social (4000 fold change factor of communications etch)
how does edusummit tap into latest change reports at un - eg digital coop report, refugee learning reports (academic impact hubs)
new universities - pro-youth, disadvantaged - either pay later if successful, or offering training back from future of public servants - or why would societies want to charge youth who saving the human race
why not only one university- curriculum of doing sustainability ending global poverty - the best - why cant we make market of best content presenters - then work back from how to locally coach that - eg bridges less than 5% make content
mooc missed opportunities- first one eg kims change the world got million people but didnt then branch into an entrepreneur competition - missed opportunity of realty tv story- sustainability livelihoods apprentice
missing curricula and missing modalities - eg 10 times more affordable languages will come from peer to peer webs not classroom
spiritual curricula before adolescences - city montesorri, maharishi, tokyo mayors memory of zen
cases where exchanges are happening - arctic circle experimenting with virtual reality of learning by "being" in each other's community - creating exchanges that are youth led on local community issues- collaboration curricula arcus
systems that have been founded round livelihoods not standard examination
brac since 1972
thelearninweb.net since 1984
montessori since 1920 (including village systems - india gandhi- brac banglaldesh)
most famous people didnt go through standard school system
-how do we clarify different behavioural learning systems for different types of successful people - how do we make sure news is released at youth expos eg at olympics
stories of how the classroom was designed around empire bureaucrats - not maximisng individuals diverse born-with talents nor communities diverse contexts
are any nations putting even 2% of educational money into learning - if so what sorts - america sees khan as normal ; china may see AI teaching assistants as the norm;
what are the most extreme edutech platforms already designed- what the most creative thing being done with it eg hujiang (plus chinese tedx convener only of new education)
the hidden agenda - no homework easy to be successful where communities safe and rish for youth to try stuff in - ie community thriving and ending classroom double looped
-why would a community not prioritise making sure any unique skills to that culture are given precedence in education system (ie everyone's potentially a teacher and a learner - not a profession of teachers - 4 monopolies of teachers- what adam smith said about system whose higher education's inost designed for the youth
suppose we now can design bank for 2 billion unbanked but not livelihood training (or no sme market) for them -= will we be doing any sustainability good
what if education was discussed everywhere new belt raid infrastructure invested in - ie what if livelihood learning had equal first access to infrastructure or any other financial access - cf 300 trillion dollars that does not see humanity's sustainability goals as asset class

<nyt_text><nyt_correction_top>LORD knows there’s a lot of bad news in the world today to get you down, but there is one big thing happening that leaves me incredibly hopeful about the future, and that is the budding revolution in global online higher education. Nothing has more potential to lift more people out of poverty — by providing them an affordable education to get a job or improve in the job they have. Nothing has more potential to unlock a billion more brains to solve the world’s biggest problems. And nothing has more potential to enable us to reimagine higher education than the massive open online course, or MOOC, platforms that are being developed by the likes of Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and companies like Coursera and Udacity.

Last May I wrote about Coursera — co-founded by the Stanford computer scientists Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng — just after it opened. Two weeks ago, I went back out to Palo Alto to check in on them. When I visited last May, about 300,000 people were taking 38 courses taught by Stanford professors and a few other elite universities. Today, they have 2.4 million students, taking 214 courses from 33 universities, including eight international ones.
Anant Agarwal, the former director of M.I.T.’s artificial intelligence lab, is now president of edX, a nonprofit MOOC that M.I.T. and Harvard are jointly building. Agarwal told me that since May, some 155,000 students from around the world have taken edX’s first course: an M.I.T. intro class on circuits. “That is greater than the total number of M.I.T. alumni in its 150-year history,” he said.
Yes, only a small percentage complete all the work, and even they still tend to be from the middle and upper classes of their societies, but I am convinced that within five years these platforms will reach a much broader demographic. Imagine how this might change U.S. foreign aid. For relatively little money, the U.S. could rent space in an Egyptian village, install two dozen computers and high-speed satellite Internet access, hire a local teacher as a facilitator, and invite in any Egyptian who wanted to take online courses with the best professors in the world, subtitled in Arabic.
YOU just have to hear the stories told by the pioneers in this industry to appreciate its revolutionary potential. One of Koller’s favorites is about “Daniel,” a 17-year-old with autism who communicates mainly by computer. He took an online modern poetry class from Penn. He and his parents wrote that the combination of rigorous academic curriculum, which requires Daniel to stay on task, and the online learning system that does not strain his social skills, attention deficits or force him to look anyone in the eye, enable him to better manage his autism. Koller shared a letter from Daniel, in which he wrote: “Please tell Coursera and Penn my story. I am a 17-year-old boy emerging from autism. I can’t yet sit still in a classroom so [your course] was my first real course ever. During the course, I had to keep pace with the class, which is unheard-of in special ed. Now I know I can benefit from having to work hard and enjoy being in sync with the world.”
One member of the Coursera team who recently took a Coursera course on sustainability told me that it was so much more interesting than a similar course he had taken as an undergrad. The online course included students from all over the world, from different climates, incomes levels and geographies, and, as a result, “the discussions that happened in that course were so much more valuable and interesting than with people of similar geography and income level” in a typical American college.
Mitch Duneier, a Princeton sociology professor, wrote an essay in The Chronicle of Higher Education in the fall about his experience teaching a class through Coursera: “A few months ago, just as the campus of Princeton University had grown nearly silent after commencement, 40,000 students from 113 countries arrived here via the Internet to take a free course in introductory sociology. ... My opening discussion of C. Wright Mills’s classic 1959 book, ‘The Sociological Imagination,’ was a close reading of the text, in which I reviewed a key chapter line by line. I asked students to follow along in their own copies, as I do in the lecture hall. When I give this lecture on the Princeton campus, I usually receive a few penetrating questions. In this case, however, within a few hours of posting the online version, the course forums came alive with hundreds of comments and questions. Several days later there were thousands. ... Within three weeks I had received more feedback on my sociological ideas than I had in a career of teaching, which significantly influenced each of my subsequent lectures and seminars.”

Agarwal of edX tells of a student in Cairo who was taking the circuits course and was having difficulty. In the class’s online forum, where students help each other with homework, he posted that he was dropping out. In response, other students in Cairo in the same class invited him to meet at a teahouse, where they offered to help him stay in the course. A 15-year-old student in Mongolia, who took the same class as part of a blended course and received a perfect score on the final exam, added Agarwal, is now applying to M.I.T. and the University of California, Berkeley.

As we look to the future of higher education, said the M.I.T. president, L. Rafael Reif, something that we now call a “degree” will be a concept “connected with bricks and mortar” — and traditional on-campus experiences that will increasingly leverage technology and the Internet to enhance classroom and laboratory work. Alongside that, though, said Reif, many universities will offer online courses to students anywhere in the world, in which they will earn “credentials” — certificates that testify that they have done the work and passed all the exams. The process of developing credible credentials that verify that the student has adequately mastered the subject — and did not cheat — and can be counted on by employers is still being perfected by all the MOOCs. But once it is, this phenomenon will really scale.
I can see a day soon where you’ll create your own college degree by taking the best online courses from the best professors from around the world — some computing from Stanford, some entrepreneurship from Wharton, some ethics from Brandeis, some literature from Edinburgh — paying only the nominal fee for the certificates of completion. It will change teaching, learning and the pathway to employment. “There is a new world unfolding,” said Reif, “and everyone will have to adapt.”

Entrepreneurial Revolution - an investigation started at The Economist in the 1970s as to whether intergenerational investments in future systems would empower the net generation to be exponentially sustainable. Surveys of the next 40 years asked questions of 2015-2025 such as:
Would the global financial system be designed to sustain or collapse local communities?
Would 2015-2025 be the under 30s most exciting and productive time to be alive as they linked in sustainability of the human race. Would the parts of the Western hemisphere that advanced the industrial revolution's empires demand that its politicians, professions and academics "happily get out of the way of the sustainability generation being led by the half of youth living within 3000 miles of Beijing"?
POP -Preferential Option Poor
Would every community's most trusted practitioners be educator, health servant and banker.
