Norman Macrae -The Economist pro-youth economist -bravo sir fazle abed & jack ma
|41 years research of online learning begun at The Economist shows these main ways offline education becomes anti-youth and non job-creating- which does your place suffer from?
1 Over-examined curricula that lead to being trapped in debt not sustainable jobs
2 Missing curricula
3 Missing knowhow that doesn't fit large curricula specialism
4 Monopoly of Over-professionalism - you have to pass everything before you can contribute
5 Assumption that education happens while you are young not through life
6 Lack of apprenticeships for teenagers who may have practical instead of theoretical skills
7 Unwillingness to benchmark what free online education can liberate
8 Lack of understanding of changes net generation youth needed to rehearse to be sustainable
9 Lack of adaptability to individuals' situations and community's contexts
10 Lack of practicing collaboration in age of million times more collaboration technology
11 Structural misunderstanding of what literacies children need to develop before adolescence and what explorations they need to be empowered from adolescence. This can lead for example to parents and communities being excluded from "teaching" and school being funded as the only space for education which is a practically disastrous assumption for any community to make. To see what can be possible when freed from this depressing ideology look at http://thelearningweb.net
12 failure of public mass media to debate local and cross-cultural www.wholeplanet.tv gamechangers of borderless world ahead of time

Help us Draft The Economist's Entrepreneurial Revolution newsletter year 41
The genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution was launched by my father Norman Macrae in the Economist in 1972 after witnessing the greatest change ever (way beyond the start ups generated by the invention of the steam engine that took more than a century to roll out Industrial Revolution in some parts of the planet )

What we saw in 1972 was youth experimenting with an early digital network-part of the UK's National Development Project in Computer Assisted learning. As Einstein and Von Neumann had already predicted systemic collaboration (death of distance connectivity of digital networking) changes of this immediacy and wholeplanet scale can only spin one of two opposite things onto our children's children.
which education pathway do you wish to map? Do it now -as not to choose is the most destructive path of all. Be prepared to question everything. As readers of The Economist have known since 1972: none of the big organisational typologies of 20th century can sustain productive 21st c knowledge co-workers. The education sector needed to be the leader in going beyond the zero-sum modeling siloised when government, charity and corporate are the only financial models parents and communities have to invest inter-generational savings in.
how to design education to destroy the net generation -the tale of 4 wicked monopolies in one chaining all our children- what to research, what to teach, what to examine, what to acredit
Back in 1972 it seemed unlikely to me but quite probable to my father in spite of being media's optimistic rationalist (1) that we would design education to destroy job creation of worldwide youth in 2010s nut that is where we are still heading unless we help youth celebrate such freedoms as Khan and MoocYunus celebrated as the denoument to the 10th Skoll WorldChampionships at Oxbridge , we welcome opportunities to give away such webs as the following if you can demonstrate how to free education with them

TOUR OF JOB CREATING EDUCATION
johanessburg is the other great epicentre for most economical and practical training and I will try and make a complete list of its application areas
mit links in more socially minded tech wizards than any lab or media on earth whereas currently san francisco is the epicentre of usable open education platforms www.khanacademy.org and www.coursera.org -
I welcome any opportunity to exchange news of how to linkin such tours- 40 years ago dad and I first saw youth experimenting with early digital networks- the rest as far as The Economist's future is concerned will depend on where in the 2010s flows converge either to propagate the greatest lost generation or the most productive net generation..
ps the links between nutrition, nursing, organic food security, crop sciences so local value chains can earn a living seem to be the most popular missing practice curricula wherever students inspired by yunus meet with grameen's 2 moore's law acceleration projects of clean energy (eg million solar units installed- doubling ever 2.5 years) being part of the same solution future -if udc has a contact person on these subjects' connections it would be useful to know as probably half the people I meet in yunus related conversations are concerned with these topics- they also remain the one area that usaid has taken a completely different view on over last 5 years, and will hopefully clarify in the first ever global education conference hosted by usaid aug 2013; thematically it would also be a pity to miss any and every opportunity to approach whole foods as a main sponsor
