 stories of anti-youth education

Chief of staff of education commission investing all round the world in greatest #learninggeneration asks:

if you needed brain surgery, would you willingly go into a place designed by 19th century systems? yet that's the brain surgery we do with children every day where the classroom system hasnt changed essentially in hundreds of years

our partners includng The Economist's journalists of curriculum of Enterpreneurial Revolution first started exploring future of education 1972 with uk national development project of computer assisted learning; 

;by early 21st C 90% of teachers jobs could have changed from everyday content presentation to helping skills tutor; less than 10% of educators needed to be in content and they could have set up a channel benchmarking best ever way to teach each  conponent of a dashboard - these could have been interdisciplinary eg with technology; increasing youth would have a transprent ledger of skils achieved (eg like long list of "driving tests" and so be freed from extortion of colege issuing your final certificate

why didnt this happene - reasons vary by country - look at usa - nixon went to war with his own university students - called them bums- started never ending rise of university fees; meanwhile the democrats are in the pockets of teachers unions- do what you want as long as we have safe pensioned jobs- what you want from governent side involved making passing examination rates look good- even as text books reduced quality of real learning; meanwhile universities were encouraged to make money and build fancy properties and go to war over patents not help students learn across a city or get jobs; all the while the populatin bubbled with more and mor old people demanding benefits and more spent on war- education the lonest trem investment always got squeezed

so by 2010s most counrries education system are extremmely anti-youth and not totaly redesigned around the economies of have spent 1000 time more now on elarning communication tech than we were in 1946- the question is which countries want to chnage this so their next genrations develop and are fully employed on sustainability jobs-our diary will catalogue where the summits are being convened to answer this

Empires of the industrial age peaked by 1940s. This left fortunate people in about a third of the world up to 200 times better off than a century and a half earlier. Since 1972 we have been mapping a different revolution- one which everyone is 200 times better off starting with the poorest. But it depends on an education Beyond The Classroom (BTC). There can be as many teachers as ever but less than 10% will resemble today's classroom teachers, and probably less than 2% will resemble todays college professors. Nations that dont make this chnage will become undeveloped however rich they once were. Exploring who will help youth with this chnage is the purpose of our web and al the friends we linkin.

Betsy DeVos: Five Things to Know About Trump's Pick for Education Secretary

By Andrew Ujifusa on  November 23, 2016 1:03 PM
President-elect Donald Trump has picked national school choice advocate Betsy DeVos to be his education secretary, according to the Associated Press, after meeting with DeVos on Nov. 19. DeVos must still be confirmed by the Senate, but here are five things to know about the potential next leader of the U.S. Department of Education under Trump.
  1. DeVos is the chairwoman of the American Federation for Children, an advocacy and research organization which advocates for a variety of forms of school choice including vouchers and tax-credit scholarships. Fellow board members include Kevin Chavous, a former District of Columbia Council member, and Campbell Brown, a former CNN anchor and the founder of The 74, an education news organization that says the "public education system is in crisis" in the U.S. 
  2. In a Nov. 9 statement, Devos said the election results for both the presidency and the U.S. Senate were a vindication of "bold school choice policies." Devos also said, "AFC has already begun to pave the way for bold school choice advancement on the federal level, and we look forward to working with the Trump-Pence Administration and Congress to ensure every child has equal access to a quality school of their parents' choice." However, DeVos also expressed reservations about Trump earlier this year, the MLive news site noted, when+ she said she was waiting to "hear something from our nominee to convince me that I should s+upport him."
  3. The organization reported that its preferred candidates won in 89 percent of the 112 electoral races it "invested in" across 12 states this year, and also said in a Nov. 14 statement: "While there's been much discussion about the outcome of the election last week, there has been one undeniable victor: students, parents and school choice. Last Tuesday, voters elected pro-school choice leaders from both parties throughout the country."
  4. She was also previously head of the Michigan Republican Party from 1996 to 2000, and again from 2003 to 2005. She and her husband Dick DeVos also successfully pushed for the passage of Michigan's charter school law in 1993.
  5. DeVos is also a "national adviser" for Kids Hope USA, which helps church members serve as mentors to at-risk children. The organization promotes a "One Child, One Hour, One Church, One School" model. 
BONUS: DeVos' husband, the son of the founder of Amway, helped finance a campaign to change the Michigan Constitution to allow tuition vouchers at private schools. And the couple also started the Education Freedom Fund, which provides scholarships to disadvantaged children.

dear rebecca , and brookings friends

rebecca-  would it be possible to meet some time?

a few updates

1 i attended qatar's wise in beijing- amazing how mass media there really challenges educators - convinced wise and beijing co-hosts synergetic with education commission and your brookings summit; tsinghua and yale serve china networks are particularly exciting for education among the young chinese people i co-work with but most of all any alumni or action nets of jack ma such as

2 in 10 days time a kenyan experiment starts to scale education to 300000 kenyan catholic rural children- it takes everything intel has found to be an online curriculum  (their rachel device is fun to demonstrate anywhere educators meet)-  in this case its partner in transmission is by the yazmi satellite to schools off internet, the projet will rapidly accelerate teachers customisation of dashboards etc; the main impetus for this is the ethiopian american noah samara- suddenly ethiopia has come alive as one of china's favorite tech partners relevant to its education and g20 Small enterprise collaborations- strangely the g20 has become an annual relay (from china to germany 2017 to india 2018) of subnetworks such as business (b20) youth (y20) civil society but no Education20- i am not sure germany is the right time to fix this but it must be done in time to assemble india's greatest contributions to Learning Generation

3 at  beijing wise summit the star teacher was shannon may whom I know you know- always trying to understand her fast changing work better at bridges international- i dont understand why she hasnt been awarded varkey's million dollar teacher prize yet - varkey's dubai summit every march is another i recommend linking into

4 i am sure that jack ma is onto something in saying that blockchain will revolutionise aid and education; i am only making slow progress in understanding who in usa gets this challenge - in spite of the fact that the black american youth doing most to regenerate east coast are blockchain trainers and connected by the same faith leaders that jim kim celebrates


5 i travel monthly to either beijing or brac in bangladesh to try and help youth networks and keep real in these strange transitioning days-

Alibaba founder Jack Ma unveils ambitious plan

Mission: 100 million new jobs

By Dana McCauley

He already runs the world's biggest online shopping company, but Alibaba founder Jack Ma is not satisfied.

The Chinese billionaire has unveiled an even more ambitious plan to expand the company's reach across the globe, creating 100 million new jobs and transforming the global economy to create a more equitable world.

It may sound pie-in-the-sky, but the goal forms part of mission statement of the US$261 billion company's visionary executive chairman.

In a letter to shareholders, Ma outlined Alibaba's achievements of the past financial year - including a gross merchandise turnover of more than $195 billion (1 trillion RMB), an "unprecedented" figure - before looking to the future.

"We have more than 430 million annual active buyers, which means one out of every three individuals in China has made a purchase on our retail marketplaces," Ma wrote.

But, he said, while proud of Alibaba's online shopping achievements, "we want to do far more", saying that the benefits of globalisation had not been spread evenly, but that "digital disruption will bring us closer to a level playing field for young people and small businesses".

"We are not merely trying to shift buy/sell transactions from offline to online, nor are we changing conventional digital marketing models to squeeze out a little additional profit," he wrote.

"We are working to create the fundamental digital and physical infrastructure for the future of commerce, which includes marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing, big data and a host of other fields."

The Alibaba group of companies, founded in 1999, accounts for 60 per cent of all Chinese online sales, and this year overtook Walmart as the world's largest retailer.


It has made Ma the second richest man in Asia, with a net worth of US$28.5 billion.


It's through cloud computing that Alibaba aims to expand its reach, and the company has been investing in the technology as part of a strategy that sees shoppers' data as the contemporary equivalent of mineral riches.

"Over the next 30 years, with computing power as the new 'technology breakthrough' and data as the new 'natural resource,' the landscape of retail, financial services, manufacturing and entertainment will be transformed," Ma wrote, forecasting a decades-long period of transformation.

"The internet revolution is a historical inflection point, much like when electricity was introduced, and it may have an even greater impact," he predicted.

Alibaba's mission, he said, was to "empower merchants with the ability to transform and upgrade their businesses for the future" and "help companies all over the world to grow".

"We believe, the commerce infrastructure we have created in China - marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data, all working in concert - can be applied on a global scale to lift up small and medium businesses and ordinary consumers around the world."

Eight years after launching, Alibaba Cloud hosts 35 per cent of Chinese websites, while delivering cloud computing and big data services.


Ma said Alibaba was constantly adapting to the changing e-commerce environment, as staying at the forefront of innovation was key to its continued success.

"In the coming years, we anticipate the birth of a re-imagined retail industry driven by the integration of online, offline, logistics and data across a single value chain," he said.

"With e-commerce itself rapidly becoming a "traditional business," pure e-commerce players will soon face tremendous challenges."

A shift to mobile revenue was one such change, he said, with mobile climbing from a single-digit percentage to three-years of total revenue from Alibaba's Chinese retail marketplaces, in the space of two years.

"This is why we are adapting, and it's why we strive to play a major role in the advancement of this new economic environment," Ma said.

Innovations like Alibaba's Qianniu app, which helps online businesses to improve sales and marketing while enhancing efficiency, were an example of the type of projects the company aimed to focus on.

"In 20 years, we hope to serve two billion consumers around the world, empower 10 million profitable businesses and create 100 million jobs," Ma said, adding: "This will be an even more difficult journey than the one behind us."

LISTEN : Newstalk ZB Political Editor Barry Soper speaks to Andrew Dickens on KPMG Early Edition

Mr Ma - who's worth around $50 billion - met with John Key in Beijing late yesterday. He made his money through founding the online commerce platform Ali Baba.

Standing alongside the Prime Minister, he heaped praise on the country, which he says is loved by many Chinese.

"At least 20 of my colleagues retired from Ali Baba. They're all very young, in their 40s, they all go to New Zealand."

"I asked what they do apart from the golf and green things and they say it's the people there."

It wasn't all social, with the Chinese billionaire also talking business.

Jack Ma told the entrepreneurs luncheon Kiwi businesspeople find it difficult to access the Chinese market.

Mr Ma said he wants to make that easier with his multi-platform organisation.

"We have Ali Baba University. We would either have courses in New Zealand or invite the entrepreneurs in New Zealand to stay in China for two weeks for training."

"The second is that we're going to open an Ali Baba business embassy next year in New Zealand."

John Key is in China meeting business and political leaders.



Innovation "Made in China" - The Case of Alibaba and the role of Net-based Small Business

Innovation is a key driver for economic development and social progress and small business is one of the best ways for people to express their willingness and capability to innovate.  Pervasive business ownership has, therefore, been the foundation in many societies for the continued improvement of people’s economic wellbeing. In the People’ Republic of China, however, private business ownership was prohibited between 1957 and 1978. Productive innovations were extremely restricted and as a consequence, China’s economy was on the verge of collapse by the end of 1978. The Chinese people had suffered a historic setback.

Alibaba’s growth, driven by unleashing grassroots entrepreneurship, has become an exemplar of China’s innovation in the 21st century.  Started by 18 young people in 1999, Alibaba has grown into a giant global internet platform and has made many invaluable contributions to China’s progress. Highlighting the importance of pervasive small business ownership in unleashing grassroots innovation and improving economic wellbeing, Professor Lowrey will discuss Alibaba’s innovative strategies and explain the economic theory behind its inspiring success.




Dr. Ying Lowrey is Professor of Economics at Tsinghua University and Deputy Director of the Tsinghua Research Center for Chinese Entrepreneurs, and a member of the Academic Committee for Alibaba Group Research Institute. Her teaching and research interests include economics of innovation and entrepreneurship in the internet and platform economy, the modern microfinance market, business demographics, characteristics of business owners, and the role of free enterprise and competition in the macroeconomy. 

She received her economics Ph.D. from Duke University, economics MA from Yale University and mathematics BS from Wuhan University. Before joining Tsinghua University in 2012, she served as senior economist at the Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration and has taught economics at George Washington University and San Diego State University.

Founder of Ali Baba commits his work for Chinese on internet to generate 100 million microentrepreneur jobs in 2010s - who else would you vote at the centre of 100 million job creation leagues?
=====================update sumer 2016:
unlike oiher years spent with bangaldeshi inspired youth, i spent 2015-2016 mainly with a class of chinese female students - what brilliant minds and tirelss sources of human energy - i hope this summary of why the whole world can celebrate what jack ma is doing is near to the mark - but as always look forward to editing any errors which are mine alone washington dc text 240 316 8157
was english language tutoring

In 1995 he was sent to the usa on an exchange mission and encountered the worldwideweb - then unknown in China. He determined the www would be the biggest job creating innovation of his (or his generations) life and hopefully of every Chinese entrepreneur he could valuably link into.

Over the next 15 years his wizard coding teams went from something that was little more than an electronic yellow pages for small businesses to conceiving sustainability generation's 2 greatest retailing platforms china or the world may ever have seen..

the taobao platform is the most valuable job creating concept retailers have ever mediated because it reverses the western trend of globalisiation of retailers, bankers and big corporations squeezing out local and small enterprises from having a market; how taobao did that is an extraordinarily detailed story but note how Ma was concerned to ensure even the most cut-off of Chinese villagers could start up on tao bao (rural ecommerce is one of the innovations that Ma has led the www purpose to linkin)

His other mall was pitched at the more usual high cost fashions of big global merchandisers. Because of complex property laws in chinese cities, most expensive retailers are not much of a joy to shop in. So ali baba created a lifestyle -eg celebrate singles day 11/11 shopping virtually rather than the physically exhausting interaction in The West's biggest shopping days of the year)

SO 365/24/7 consumers of ali baba can choose who they value developing most with their purchasing power as well as searching merchandise with global image or local cultural joy

Alibaba has become china's and probably the word's largest retailing channel. It does this with next to no merchandise but brilliant coding so that every store front on its platforms delivers with equal reliability. Hunting out exactly how Ma forms partnerships so that big data analysis benefits the smallest enterprises and most local consumers ought to be a job of whomever is sustainability goals greatest economist.

Intriguingly to ensure he could compete with the chinese internet companies that raced to co-create the www that Ma had opened space for in china, Ma IPO'd Alibaba through a process 2010-2015 while developing his secret sustainability weapon under private ownership. AlIpay is china's number 1 financial inclusion delivery system and maybe global youth most humanly productive coding achievement to date.

Comparing china's top 10 internet properties with the west's is very interesting. Are the consuming behaviours on ali baba more sustainable than those on amazon or ebay or paypal? Are the learnng behaviours on baidu more sustaining of youth than on google or coursera or microsoft's linkedin. Time will tell but note how speaking english, chinese and coding (as well as mother tongue) are probably what educators anywhere on planet earth should NOW be most valuing their global youth's future freedom to thrive entrepreneurially around.
