If many people are meeting each other for the first time- including a new class at school - we recommend spending the first 3 minutes: ask people to stand up in groups of three- each person spends 60 seconds on the greatest life changing moment in her life to data and what she did differently because of it. Q&A- 1) why's this smart way spending 3 minutes introducing people? 2) how to action debrief everyone? 3) what other tools exist for innovating simultaneous communications among masses of people? 4) Does our species future generation depend on experiencing such culturally simple and trustworthy ways to spend time communicating? Lets consider 4 firstALUMNI OF WORLDCLASSBRANDS: In 1980 we started a True Media debate at The Economist "Year of Brand" on why human sustainability would depend on intangibles valuation and globalisation designing greatest brand leaders aligned to goals of sustaining generations -evidence had been collected with MIT's first database software of society's needs in 50 nations and thousands of markets

2020 update of 1984's 2025 report

it is great that one charity -sal khan's has mAPPED all of this BUT .....any young people you mentor registering for these events? - i still havent worked out if this is the only way we peoples can interact with the 75th birthday of the UNGA

i have been asking administrators of the japan  society to share the news- as they are 1 block away from the UN they usually know practical things like that as soon as anyone does

one prediction i will make - universities that havent transparently sorted out their coalition for this strangest of all student year 2021-22 dont deserve any role in certifying the future of youth -that was always adam smith's number 1 precept for education being a free market

happy interdependence weekend

He lived in China until the age of 15, where his father, John Black Grant, was the first professor of Public Health at the Rockefeller Foundation funded Peking Union Medical College. Grant attended the University of California, Berkeley, graduating in 1943 in economics. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen after World War II, and in 1951 graduated from Harvard Law School.


sal khan is bangladeshi american and mit alumni; the founding quadir family of bkash.com brac and ngo's most populous digital bank for poor are bangladeshi and at mit 

fazle abed world's number 1 knowledge connector of end poverty was bangladeshi but with learning fusion of glasgow engineering, franciscan servant leadership, chinese virus chase, british-dutch oil company ceo
how does sir fazle's abed university unite alumni of both bangladeshi americans and abed cultures as well as the rest of soros, bank ki-moon, gates, jack ma, jim kim and other people who see that livelihood education of the sustainability generation is now species defining

why isnt there a correspondent in every city of sir fazle-abed*khan*quadir translating this into every language/culture linking in sdg collaboration cities

exponential economist estimates of how far the virus has set back the average north american lifestyle are at least 7 years- india-bangladesh likely to be 20 years if we cant now unite education gravitated around lives and livelihoods

.sustainability's three-in one human transformation of edutech, health & atire-tech,fintech -extracts from 1984's 2025 report by macrae & macrae.......Changing Economics
The introduction of the international Centrobank was the last great act of government before government grew much less important. It was not a conception of policy-making governments at all, but emerged from the first computerised town meeting of the world.
By 2005 the gap in income and expectations between the rich and poor nations was recognised to be man's most dangerous problem. Internet linked television channels in sixty-eight countries invited their viewers to participate in a computerised conference about it, in the form of a series of weekly programmes. Recommendations tapped in by viewers were tried out on a computer model of the world economy. If recommendations were shown by the model to be likely to make the world economic situation worse, they were to be discarded. If recommendations were reported by the model to make the economic situation in poor countries better, they were retained for 'ongoing computer analysis' in the next programme.
In 2024 it is easy to see this as a forerunner of the TC conferences which play so large a part in our lives today, both as pastime and principal innovative device in business. But the truth of this 2005 breakthrough tends to irk the highbrow. It succeeded because it was initially a rather downmarket network television programme. About 400 million people watched the first programme, and 3 million individuals or groups tapped in suggestions. Around 99 per cent of these were rejected by the computer as likely to increase the unhappiness of mankind. It became known that the rejects included suggestions submitted by the World Council of Churches and by many other pressure groups. This still left 31,000 suggestions that were accepted by the computer as worthy of ongoing analysis. As these were honed, and details were added to the most interesting, an exciting consensus began to emerge. Later programmes were watched by nearly a billion people as it became recognised that something important was being born.......
Changing Livelihood Education

The move in jobs in the past fifty years in the rich countries has been out of manufacturing and into telecommuting.

Changing education
There has been a sea-change in the traditional ages on man. Compared with 1974 our children in 2024 generally go out to paid work (especially computer programming work) much earlier, maybe starting at nine, maybe at twelve, and we do not exploit them. But young adults of twenty-three to forty-five stay at home to play much more than in 1974; it is quite usual today for one parent (probably now generally the father, although sometimes the mother) to stay at home during the period when young children are growing up. And today adults of forty-three to ninety-three go back to school - via computerised learning - much more than they did in 1974.
In most of the rich countries in 2024 children are not allowed to leave school until they pass their Preliminary Exam. About 5 per cent of American children passed their exam last year before their eight birthday, but the median age for passing it in 2024 is ten-and-a-half, and remedial education is generally needed if a child has not passed it by the age of fifteen.
A child who passes his Prelim can decide whether to tale a job at once, and take up the remainder of his twelve years of free schooling later; or he can pass on to secondary schooling forthwith, and start to study for his Higher Diploma.
The mode of learning for the under-twelves is nowadays generally computer-generated. The child sits at home or with a group of friends or (more rarely) in an actual, traditional school building. She or he will be in touch with a computer program that has discovered , during a preliminary assessment, her or his individual learning pattern. The computer will decide what next questions to ask or task to set after each response from each child.
A school teacher assessor, who may live half a world away, will generally have been hired, via the voucher system by the family for each individual child. A good assessor will probably have vouchers to monitor the progress of twenty-five individual children, although some parents prefer to employ groups of assessors - one following the child's progress in emotional balance, one in mathematics, one in civilized living, and so on - and these groups band together in telecommuting schools.
Many communities and districts also have on-the-spot 'uncles' and 'aunts'. They monitor childrens' educational performance by browsing through the TC and also run play groups where they meet and get to know the children personally...
Some of the parents who have temporarily opted out of employment to be a family educator also put up material on the TC s for other parents to consult. Sometimes the advice is given for free, sometimes as a business
returning to 1984's report
Changing communications, and what makes people distant, bossy etc
Telecommunications are now recognised as the third of the three great transport revolutions that have, in swift succession, transformed society in the past two hundred years. First, were the railways; second the automobile; and third, telecommunications-attached-to-the-computer, which was bound to be the most far-reaching because in telecommunications, once the infrastructure is installed, the cost of use does not depend greatly on distance. So by the early years of the twenty-first century brainworkers - which in rich countries already meant most workers - no longer need to live near their work.
All three revolutions were opposed by the ruling establishments of their time, and therefore emerged fastest where government was weak. All three brought great new freedoms to the common man, but the railway and motor-car ages temporarily made access to capital the most important source of economic power. As most men and women did not like being bossed about by capitalists who could become more powerful because they were born stinking rich, they voted to give greater economic power to governments during the railway and motor-car ages. This was economically inefficient, and also made tyrannies more likely and more terrible. The information revolution was fortunately the exact opposite of the steam engine's industrial revolution and of Henry Ford's mass production automobile revolution in this respect. The steam engine and mass production has made start-up costs for the individual entrepreneur larger and larger, so that in both the steam and automobile ages to quote Bell Canada's Gordon Thompson in the early 1970s, there was 'no way an ordinary citizen could walk into a modern complex factory and use its facilities to construct something useful for himself'. But, as Thompson forecast, the databases of the next decades were places into which every part-time enthusiast could tele-commute. In all jobs connected with the use of information, start-up costs for the individual entrepreneur in 1984-2024 have grown smaller and smaller. It was 'never thus', said Thompson, 'with power shovels and punch presses'.
In consequence, in the TC age, the most important economic resource is no longer ownership of or access to capital, but has become the ability to use readily available knowledge intelligently and entrepreneurially.
Changing national politics
For a region's people to succeed in the Telecommuting Age there are five main requirements - satisfied in places as far apart ad Guam and Queensland and Cape Province and California and Penang and Scotland. 

First basic health needs to be insured and ensured for all starting with the birth of the next girl everywhere. please see footnote 1 for update

Second , as the prophet John Naisbitt said in 1982, 'the languages needed for the immediate future are computer and English'. (2010s update this has always implied that dual plus 1 language schools 1french+ 2catalan+spanish+ 3.1 chinese+american 3.2 chinese+english  need to be celebrated everywhere especially in border regions- youth's belt road so to speak- add in arts, sports, fitness services designed to bridge borders until belt road infrastructure mapping is seen as integral to uniting nations as peace keeping)

 Third, the area has to be a nice one in which to live. , to bring up families

Fourth, it is important that all income earners should adapt happily to a 'cafeteria of compensation' schemes. These allow the individual employee to decide what mix (s)he wants of salary, job objectives, career aims, flexitime, job sharing, long or short holidays, fringe benefits or fringe nuisances.

 Fifth there needs to be a competitive and quickly changing telecommunications system. The TC age is making understanding of these requirements increasingly transparent among human beings worldwide.

Governments at first tried to impede or regulate much of this, but an early discovery of the Telecommuting age was that we could change the way we chose our governments. Until the 1990s we had pretended to ourselves that we could alter our lifestyles by choosing on each Tuesday or Thursday every four years whether Mr Reagan or Mr Carter , Mrs Thatcher or Mr Kinnock, was putting on the tribal demonstration which at that particular moment annoyed us less. After the advent of the TC we found that the more sensible and direct way in which a free man or woman could choose government was by voting with his or her feet. The individual could go to live in any area where the government - which could from then on be a very local government - permitted the lifestyle, rules and customs which suited that human being.

footnote 1 added 2020- (editorial context- between 1962 - consider japan , and 1977 consider china- dad's favorite celebrations for the human lot were wherever asian's improved engines (ie edming) and rural keynsianism-5 years before he died in 2010 he was delighted to start to see one major omission of his celebrations- much of what he had reported from village china in the 1970s was in fact a co-entrepreneurial revolution with grassroots female empowerment networked out of bangladesh villages- four decades of sir fazle abed's brilliant mapping of the world's largest ngo coalition were evident to dad before his death- the fifth and last decade 2010s of sir fazle abed's work is only just being tidied up by a university coalition now osun though the japanese embassy in dhaka was kind enough to remember norman macrae by hosting two roundtable dinners on sir fazle mission for 2010s virtual banking partnership for billion unbanked women - his legacy for the future- free universities for any millennial concerned with last mile service of sustainability's most urgent challenges

2019 36th annual update- education can sustain all millennials?

because of family duties- i never got to visit china apart from hong kong until some chinese students mooced with me around jim kim's scenarios 2013 on how heatly society builds strong economies across generations not vice versa- in early 2016 i started 10 visits to beijing and one to changsha the capital of the birth state hunan of chairman mao-  i was lucky - the first student translator had been trained by a unesco subgroup within tsinghua to understang english well enough to negotiate complex things that only global dimplmats ever get enough data on to facilitate

walking roung tsinghua became my favorite journey in life
there i met ying lowrey author of jack ma's alibaba way -and she told me to ask youth to start celebrating the return of ma full time to education- between age 11 and 30 jack ma had been his city's main peer to peer trainer of english speaking youth- hangzhou had become the first designated tourist city as china opened up- with no reliable human maps, guiding tourists in english was also the way for chiense youth to map geographies across the fast chang world of moore's law 0g to 5g decades

next i was shown a new college network schwarzman co-launched by tsinghua's presidnt now mayor of beijing - chen- i attended un ny sept 2016 launch of education commission by gordon brown, jack ma jim kim, tokyo's mayor, sweden's pm
i joined in sheihkha' moza's wise at beijing nov 2016,
i attended jack ma's gateway summits with 3000 youth in detroit and toronto spring 2017 and aiib's jeju/korea annual summit summer 2017 wise summit qatar nov 2017 where we celebrated the6th wise laureate patruck founder of ashesi ni versity in ghana and listened to the wise advice of the only diplomat to launch a nation's top university- mahbubani the tram leader chosen by singapore's father of the nation and asean goodwill lee kuan yew

please could you relay this to shannon may or appropriate team member

we loved the half day tutorial you gave at wise@beijing; unfortunately the founding laureate networks brac  (sir fazle abed) missed this and other chinese blended and digital revolutions in education



 - so Sept 30 to October 6 we are helping arrange a week to correct this at brac headquarters - from the chinese side it will be led by jack ma's main female professor-chair based at Tsinghua University Beijing

as you probably know down the road from harvard the legatum lab at mit helped build http://www.bkash.com as women world's largest cashless bank with brac and jack ma started his partnerships with brac at this fintech network 3 months ago

Education Next looks at teacher guides

The Bridge academic team has been writing about the merits of pre-prepared, detailed lesson plans for teachers.  The Harvard University-affiliated magazine Education Next publishes a piece that helps to shed light on the benefits of the model within the context of developing economies. The author considers her own journey from being against structured guidance to becoming a strong advocate and the evidence that has changed her mind. She says, "after more than a decade of teaching middle schoolers, training teachers, and designing lessons for schools all over the world, I’ve changed my tune."

Quality as the yardstick for progress

Bridge VP of Measurement and Evaluation, Dr Steven Cantrell, has been sharing his thoughts about the need for the quality of education to be effectively measured and invested in. He points out that sometimes this is overlooked and the consequences are significant. One of his most stark messages is 'Primary school attendance is not the problem.' The well respected Impakter magazine published his article to highlight one of the most important issues in the global education debate.
Dr Cantrell's piece is a response to the World Bank’s recently released Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals.

Education is a right so let's deliver it

We take a closer look at the international legal issues surrounding global education and UN Human Rights. Bridge puts forward the argument for non-state actors to help achieve education for all on the basis that rights must be delivered urgently. It is now 70 years since the right to education was made universal and the fact that hundreds of millions are still not learning shows that fresh approaches are needed. We make a nuanced case that "It is only through embracing new, innovative, scalable and sustainable models" that universal free quality education for all can be achieved.

Celebrating the achievements of disabled children


Bridge has marked the Global Disability Summit by championing the hard work and talent of Bridge pupils in Africa and India. We published five inspirational accounts of young people who are fearlessly pursuing their dreams and ambitions despite the extra challenges.  Around the world there are at least 150 million children living with disabilities and they are ten times less likely to go to school. The way Bridge serves disabled children has been reported on Front Page Africa, The Standard and the Nile Post among others.
How Bridge supports disabled children to learn
