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:
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.
how do we get china involved in MOOCS-
