Charter of 2013 Year of MOOC.  version Xmas Day 2012

jargon MOOC - Massive Online Open Curriculum - Has education value chain ever seen a greater gamechanger?

Following the mid-december dialogues in Dhaka, Norman Macrae Foundation and associated AsiaPacific.cc journalists including correspondents of Consider Bangladesh and Japan are delighted to call for support of 2013 Year of MOOC

Out of Scotland,  the idea that the journal of social business can become a directory (eg use its back page to become an updating register) to bottom-up MOOCS and help lead the call for microeducationsummit to value this as one of its panels or tracks.


We do so hope that a quorum of existing editors and scots inspired by adam smith and james wilson will agree.  Skinner's comments on how Adam Smith valued education in issue 1 of JOSB suggest that Adam would have loved MOOCS. Knowing how much time Tom Hunter as put into reforming Scottish children's education and exploration of entrepreneurship, I hope he will join you in advancing this call out of scotland.

Below, I have scribbled a one pager on why pro-youth economics needs 2013 to be The Year of The MOOC - would it be possible to get both yunus and sir fazle abed to write a short letter supporting this? -it would be fantastic if that could happen before alabama as releasing that news would then be in time for tokyo' 12000 student competition and the debriefings I am helping to convene of MIT students in february which you indicated sir fazle would like to be debriefed on in march; we would also try and host with sarah butler-sloss (dhaka visit) and the japan ambassador questions like how are bottom up moocs of green energy to be open sourced. I was also informed by the leader of the climate crisis policy group in Beijing that 2013 is the year when the top chinese decision makers want green energy networking to be led by local communities

There is a window of opportunity to get open source technologists -and everyone to use berners lee slogan that opened the olympics "the web is for everyone" content specifying MOOCS before top-down siloised mindsets do. Right now MOOC is an opportunity to ensure that youth have direct access to every action learning of yunus and abed's lives of innovations

IF anyone sees a way to improve the one-pager so that it words the call in the way that bangladesh's massive village networkers at 42 celebrate this as their call then please do that -it may be that mostofa could see if mrs begum and yunus want a joint discussion on this- one problem being that you need to sit down round a terminal and demonstrate some MOOCs before the greatest educational action learners can seize the opportunity to do moocs their way

if we can start with abed and yunus endorsing this I would then suggest we get ingrid munro and taddy blecher endorsing this as well as ask sam and michael who are the other people they would want to see leading a pane on MOOCS tha6 microcredit and pro-youth economists need to help to make the worldwide online benchmark

of course one MOOC context is simply -how do you share cross-cultural understanding around the worldwide web of the bangladesh microcredit model at the various key stages of financial literacy and celebrating banks with value- ie pre-adolescence, before end of secondary and later stages

Microeducationsummit calls for Microecredit leaders and worldwide youth to be first to choose MOOCS of Job Creating Education

Forty years ago The Economist became the first global new medium to question how the coming of the internet would change the total education chain, job creation, investment in youth leading open technology to co-produce the most exciting millennium goals. (eg reference Gordon Dryden JOSB issue1)

The end of 2012 issue of The Economist discusses Massive Online Open Curriculum as arguably the greatest gamechanger to the education value chain. While MOOCs have emerged at the tertiary stage in USA, student entrepreneur competitions are already demanding MOOCS at secondary and prinary stages on such topics as:

  • Financial Literacy - the world's most popular children's curriculum "AFLATOUN" emerged from slumchildren - how do we put it online
  • Aquaponics and other bottom-up job creating networks inspired by food security
  • How Biogas cooking stoves can be a secondary curriculum for discussing which waste can your community most economically turn into bioenergy- reference MIT globalchallenge 2012
  • Helping children celebrate wherever open source apps change future job specifications- the open source nurse beingan apprenticeship and 21st C job specification that Grameen has decided is most important to pioneer now that it has 16 years of worldwide leadership in testing mobile phones in poorest villages (references the first 4 stateswide social business competitions hosted by Muhammad Yunus in Alabama, North Carolina, Georgia, Oregon and various papers on Free Nursing Coleges and open source medical)


The origins of Bangladesh microcredit saw revolutions in bottom-up banking and bottom-up education as inseparable. This culture multiplied because village mothers voted for their lives being invested in their children's productive freedom and happiness. Before that the first curriculum, Grameen and BRAC adapted Frieres pedagogy of the Oppressed to provide intensive mentoring beyond adult illiteracy as far as it was necessary to run a family business from a woman's home. Soon BRAC was becoming the integral host of rural primary and secondary schools, while Grameen's articles of membership and banking branches accreditation required every members child to attend primary school and created the biggest secondary scholarship fund from the members savings. In the biography of BRAC "Freedom From Want" John Smillie argues that the first sustainable charity model designed by Sir Fazle Abed concerned the publishing of informal primary curriculum which tens of thousands of schools became linked into.

Other leaders of microcredits have found that empowerment curriculum are necessary before a prospective client has self-confidence to start taking out a loan. In other cases, microcredits co-create bottom-up sectors because microentrepreneurs who innovate a sustainable franchise in their community are happy to lead peer to peer learning of how to replicate the franchise. For example pop-up catering in various modes has emerged in some countries through an association of people who loved becoming income generating through cooking and serving nutritious food. Knowledge Society co-working of the sort Peter Drucker imagined and the Japanese "BA" curriculum used to replace managers by servant leaders. https://openknowledge.worldbank.org/bitstream/handle/10986/7082/372...

At the journal of social business, we welcome nominations of curricula that are most valued by bottom-up microcredit leaders and the youth they inspire across our global village world and the united race to poverty museums. We call for microeducationsummit becoming a clearing house of bottom-up MOOCS.  Like The Economist forty years ago, we cheer on rational optimisation of investing in net generation youth to co-produce the most exciting goals of any generation. 2013 as the Year of MOOCS can be the gamechangers to help make this happen. Urgency is needed in any practice area like climate crisis where we who are alive today are the first generation to understand the crisis exists and the last to be in time to resolve it.

The collaboration blog http://youth10000education.blogspot.com asks the question how many of youth's 10000 greatest job creators will be involved in education and celebrates MOOCS that illuminate this search.

First questions-

how do we get china involved in MOOCS-

check 1 Jack Ma .  check 2 Beijing Climate Change Policy Group - rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk who else?


My understanding from zasheem's discussions in dhaka and mostofa is that march is dhaka's month of moocs -here is what the Economist already has written on MOOCs- it not informed by work dad and I started in 1972 when we first played with computer assiisted learning so dont expect to understand that mooc is last great chance to change world over to pro-youth economics withput all of your help as 6 Bangladeshi's who have grounded view of job creating education and oen technolgy
in march: the whole abed family will host a day's debriefing on what bottom-up moocs have found so far -as well as what lifetime education questions sir fazle still wants mapped - and it would be great if japan ambassador could also host such an event within a few days of the abeds
-get those 2 dates fixed then see who (sarah wants to come or send their deputees)
the story of why bangladesh at 42 is better at starting up bottom up mooc content is:  that yunus and begum created demand for job creating education among 8 million vilage mothers and sir fazle did the most to supply this - now that all youth's future employment depends on their freedom to choose moocs -we'd better get curricula led out of dhaka on such sustainability critical topics as
4 microenergy and microwaste
3 nurses as most life critical knowledge network of any sustainable vilage
2 finacial literacy - alfatoun's program in 90 countries started in anorphanage in india - and its leaders in netwierlands have told me they want to update it with cashless banking
1 bottom up crop science and water flows
0 open source and telecentre everything
the way things seem to be converging
february is mit month where i get to see results of 33 student projects i helped judge a fortnight ago -fortunately both the student ceos of mit100k retire at end of february - ie go out to the job market so its time to leverage their networks whith who needs to linking dhaka month of moocs
and we can try to connect more links around visits naila and i started 18 months ago when there was still the hope that yunus gold congress medal and open tech summit in dc could happen during obama 1 something the french embassy under sarkozy was excited to do - if i can promise mit students march's mooc diary in dhaka then they will work out who needs to travel and who needs to skype ... naila also knows eg emmanuel faber who co-started the unmba curriculum so sometime this spring it is last chance to debrief all the french who started global sb partebrships wuth yunus after hec lunch in 2005 why they have fabulous moc cases to contribute in any global market sector whose pursose they want to value sustainably
january on 18 in yunus student competition in alabama - the last 2012-2013US opportunity to gossip month of moocs--also annouce a special prize in future youth competitions where students propose moocs as social busiensses- also between now and 18 january i will see if anyone wants to advance the agenda of the orhpanage as a job creating hub -several of us know founders of orphanages who are interested in such peer to peer possibilitues - africa's grearest microcredit model merged around orphans families; its free university around mandela partners was similarly motivated; the alfatoun fin literacy curriculum in 90 cou8ntries started in an indian orphanage
the agenda of orphanges as rural job creating hubs as well as education telecentres  is a way to enable DC youth and everyone to bypass top-down usaid and work out which embassies want help with job creating orphanges - this bypassing is essential step in a 3 -part program to de-siloise development knowledge in dc with youth taking the lead-its also a way to take back the hub model that has seriously abused al youth understanding of yunus almsot as mkuch as hans reitz has
naila and I are working on step 2 in spril
and step 3 comes whenever yunus testifies to congress on his gold medal prize
it is my understanding that abed has told zasheem that if month of moocs goes well in dhaka he will help launch stuff in scotland and we can then replicate that paradigm in oter countries once we have queen sofia of spain and greece calling for moocs as the core program of microeducationsummit
could you reply with
1 any additions to this diary that you can linkin
2 with a comment on anything that you either disagree with most in above or want to add because its not yet in view- the diary only works if it flows with all 7 o0f our priorities -also hopefully moocs can blindside the worst of top=-down politicians out of dhaka because moocs are as naturally open and universal as the web itself
if the 7 of us understand this program we then need to mentor people including
john mickelthwait
sam daley harris most connecetd conference person of microcreditsummit
michael knaute - most connected conference person of convergences2015.org
people monica needs to linin such as vivienne westwood who is also great and turning eu in brussels upside down
we also need to hunt out pro-youth economic champions like queen sofia and tom hunter
I have a desperate priority to linkin more japanese and chinese - and above all open tech; who else do we need to win-win-win with MOOC first?
