We (elders and youth of the net generation) could now be valuing a wholly different planet

since 1972 alumni of The Economist's Entrepreneurial Revolution have become convinced that education entrepreneurs models benefit most from collaboration and that open education is the key to the door of the net generation being 10 times more (or if we mess it up in next decade less ) productive and exponentially sustainable

we hope our guided tour of these 11 helps you  help youth celebrate the above conclusion - of course we are delighted to hear of nominations of other education collaboration entrepreneurs -rsvp but note our 11 are also chosen to complement each other


for example: Sal Khan's online academy demonstrates the most economic way to viralise any action learning that millions of youth could most gain from action networking, while


Sir Fazle Abed  has spent the last 43 years developing the ngo network that can claim all of these accolades:

biggest in terms of co-workers having served north of 100 million poorest mothers and children in Bangladesh and in the last decade or so replicating the model to many of the most seriously oppressed peoples on the planet

most collaborative

most educational driven in the action learning and job creating sense

the most value multiplying in terms of human livelihoods

consequently the curriculum of BRAC is worth more than any other curriculum that isnt yet available

BRAC is a curriculum replicator unlike any the real world 1 2 has ever seen. It now operates close to 50000 educational facilities -many no larger than a one room village school. Its metric has been to end generations of illiteracy among 15 million parents and 60 million children in rural Bangladesh. Paulo Freire was the first source Sir Fazle consulted on this part of BRAC's journey. Today BRAC also runs a city university one of whose unique features is every student spend an action learning term interning on a village innovation project


can you help norman macrae foundation call for a microeducationsummit before we lose the lifetime knowledge of these great educators (many way over 70) ?

Passing tests doesn’t begin to compare with searching and inquiring and into pursuing topics that engages and excite us. That’s far more significant than passing tests. In fact, if that’s the kind of educational career that you’re given the opportunity to pursue, you will remember what you’ve discovered. There’s a famous physicist, a world famous physicist right here at MIT who, like a lot of the senior faculty, was teaching freshmen courses, he once said that in his freshmen course, students will ask, “What are we going to cover this semester?” His standard answer was, “It doesn’t matter what we cover, it matters what you discover.”


That’s what teaching ought to be; inspiring students to discover on their own, to challenge if they don’t agree, to look for alternatives if they think there are better ones, to work through the great achievements of the past and try to master them on their own because they’re interested in them. If that’s the way a teaching is done, students will really gain from it and will, not really remember what they studied, but will be able to use it as a basis for growing, on their own. Again, education is really aimed to just helping students get to the point where they can learn on their own because that’s what you’re going to do for your life, not just to absorb materials given to you from the outside and repeat it.

7 OLA the unexpected- eg now that India has proven that almost any illiterate adult can be helped to read a newspaper within a month- how does that change all formal education of literacy?  


Bernardo - a possible solution

[1:02:46 AM] chrismacraedc: imagine if we renamed your curriculum  Social enterprise School Chile-Global Millennials EN.pdf, 1.1 MB  (across 45 universities ) social enterprise curriculum and tried to linkin un women partners that your president michelle, naila and laura turner could choose, and linkin with brac and world bank open learning campus (and khan academy)

[1:03:24 AM] chrismacraedc: do you have a list of case studies which you currently think of as inspired by grameen as I expect we can translate most of them into brac cases especially all heath and crop science ones

[1:05:01 AM] chrismacraedc: at the same time we could see if eg sarah sainsbury wanted to join in with green cases and if eg kenya would to add nanocredit cases in addition to ones naila is already creating and japan and boston (partners in health, young professionals of medical) could beef up medical and nursing cases; rome could link peace and ifad knowhow; adma smith scholars in glasgow are currently led by an italian and back in 1006 europe's number 1 researcher of unsustainable big organsiatoons was romano prodi

[1:06:20 AM] chrismacraedc: it would be timely to set 12 month deadline for this redesign them we could report back to un and laura turner in time for them to take back millennials goals  investments (and peace laureates open society action networks) from mess yunus fundraisers will otherwise make
