chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk : Can you help girls co-create sustainability's 3 billion new jobs: renew every community, renew planet, humanise exponential impacts of 1000 times more commnstech than 1946 ? Most exciting times to be alive : Over next decade (3 generations – half of world being girls & boys under 30, their parents and grandparents) will determine whether human race is sustainable.
Do you see why education must change way beyond 300 hundred old classrooms to empower girls to explore far more than history can examine? NB by 1969 about 12 times more comstech had led a small network of men to race to the moon while almost half of girls were too poor to have access to electricity grids let alone any progress of 250 years of Industrial Revolution. Inspired by miraculous developments in China and Bangladesh, GirlsBeltRoad invites every community to celebrate going beyond win-lose era of colonisation and carbonisation. Diarise sustainability's urgent search for world record jobs creators; empower girls to lift up half the sky by transforming orbits of education and economies back to celebrating sutsainability of everyone.

*missing curricula/*missing loveq / *missing celebrations of youth/*missing cooperation spaces/hubs 
*missing cultural translations/*missing economic valuation of both youth and motherhood *missing timing at
each revolution in tech or media-
missing curricula  rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk if you can he;p log up missing curricula links

1 2 dialogues on missing curricula as one of 7 crises of future of education started 
EconomistLearning.com @ 1984 book on the 2025 report-


longest practice network began in new zealand  around Gordon Dryden in the 1980s at 
thelearningweb.net : by 1990s ten million books on this subject had been sold to chinese parents

our first interview on missing curricula with the head of a university : taddy blecher of mandela extranet and south africa's nearly free university was in 2006 - at that time his main college was called CIDA - it is now called maharishi -taddy married annie about 2010 who had led practices of maharsihi in rural china

 back in 2006 taddy and thousands of graduate cohorts out of south africa were looking for green curricula (including aquaponics, solar,  ) for rural graduates to take back to the heartland-

later at a norman macrae remembrance party after graduating 15000 alumni he told us that the had voted for the 4 most missing curricula - wiuch the college's students had to innovate - and which maharishi university now new to be missing at 7th grade which is when most south africans leave school:
maharishi consciousness curricula of love/believe in self
coding - which google africa had helped develop as a curricula
entrepreneurial literacy which richard branson had helped develop as a curricula
financial literacy which developing various online apps had turned into a peer to peer curricula

we are interested in cataloguing the world's leading nearly free universities- these

  • value students from non-privileged upbringings
  • dont put student in debt believing that students ;pay forward - those who become financially successful can later invest in the university - the social ones build the futures people need to sustain-
  •  moreover until the sustainability goals are embedded in education, nearly free universities require professors to study harder than students and empower the students to be teachers of fast changing technologies

upsate July 2015- africa educators change the world chris macrae

  • - as well as maharishi, beijing's top puvlic servant universities operate in this way especially tsinghua which was reinvented in 1980s to be where the party members either learnt chinese capitalism or redesigned the future of public service- to of the first 5 wise education laureates are inter alia founders of universities valuing youth and particularly girls

other norman macrae remembrance parties -Economist Boardroom London;



two at University of Glasgow including Dr Yunus 70th birthday wish party launching journal of social business edited by Adam Smith scholars; two at Japan Embassy in Dhaka celebrating girls empowerment at  (sir fazle abed ) brac and bkash with Kamil Quadir - ask chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk for more details or if you want to join alumni of Entrepreneurial Revolutions 52nd year of redesigning value chains around transforming education to celebrate poverty-ending small enterprise microfranchises and digital cooperation apps of sustainability tech wizards...

other missing peer to peer curricula
the lancet and australian professors tell us pre teens persona health espleciallyh for girls is tghe biggesyt missing curricula and it should anly be a peer to peer loutside classroom action learnikng network- this is especially important for gorls and anywhere that a place and youth need to deve;lop each lother

in 2018 china announced artifuicial intelogence is a missing curricula and that its introduction into primary schools is a leading priority for 2019 - there are about 15 outstaanding innovators of AI who value its application in teaching as a prioroty that we have so far cound- most are either chiense or value their connectiuons with people like jack ma 

other problems with curricula
10 times too costly - language cloureses are now 10 times too costly because peer to peer formats are motre efficient and more fun in revealing a diferent character than if you8 only speak one langiage- 


curricula misfocused - as some who obtained a ba honours disntinction in maths in 1972 i can tell you that if i had to study maths in amwrican schoo;s of 21st c i would have flunked - multipe choice text books are not the way to teach maths and the curricula is wrong in every way compared with what i studied and missing opportunities to make the new tech and maths rewarding to most students- fillay having studied enough about6 the schooling of von neumann and his [eers i can tell you there kis zero chnace of american schools every training such exeptional maths people again unless we tear up todays standarised text books

from japan in 1962 onwards, Economist alumni of tech's entreprenurial revolution can deduce: it is likely that the most urgent missing curricula vary round different neighbors of
eg china (below): or USA (here) or Russia (here.) or Britain and Geneva here or world record jobs creators

CHINA AND SUSTAINABLE NEIGHBORS MOST URGENT MISSING CURRICULA
south asia with china represents more than half of the worlds people- mainly in either poverty or densely populated areas where girls have so far been 10 times less valued by education over centuries of problems caused mainly by british mercantile colonial era;

north and west of china people live in the most underpopulated lands often either land or arctic locked- they need livelihood solutions from drones, spaces and cooperation places like SCO, BRICS, canada, brazil also need; east of china our experience since considering youth olympics since 1964 shows uneven but extraordinary advances in AI and other application of technology which is now at a galazxy of tipping points between improving humanity or improving the lives of robots! -see also the next discussiion of loveq

there are at least 3 ways to explore loveq

those that alumni and worldwide youth inspired by jack ma will encounter

those concerned that girls and loveq need to be valued enough to edit curricula now as the opposite segment to what the artificial intelligences will otherwise assume to be the future of education for all

those at the extreme happiness, trust-flow or consciousness end of what goleman researched as how emotional literacy -in other words wholly opposite metrics to IQ used by british empire education systems to weed out 90% of youth at age 11 as not bureaucratic enough to be worth investing much more in -lets listen to boys own explorers paul rose from the arctic circle and prince charles favorite club of nature broadcasters and royal geographers followed across the pond by astronaut ron garan-

Top 10 Education Tech Blogs
This post was written by Romane Robinson, who is currently pursuing an MA in Cognitive Studies in Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. A passionate student and proponent of human development, Romane has a BS in Research and Experimental Psychology and interned at Brainscape as a CEO Relations Manager in 2014.
Education is evolving fast. Every day, we hear about some new technology that will change the world and the way we learn in it. At Brainscape, we are dedicated to improving the way you learn with our own innovative smart flashcard technology (check out our subjects here), but there are many other educational technologies that are key to improving learning around the world. Because these rapid changes offer us the chance to improve education at every level for all people, it is more important now than ever before for teachers and students to have access to the best new methods, programs, and devices in the field right away.
Luckily, many dedicated educators blog about some of the best education technologies available and the evolution of their uses. These 10 blogs are our favorites here at Brainscape. Smart, pithy, and immediately useful, these blogs will teach you plenty about the best and most up-to-date technologies for use inside classrooms, at home, and wherever there are students who want to learn.

Top 10 Education Tech Blogs

1. The Innovative Educator

If you have ever felt that school was boring or irrelevant, the Innovative Educator, Lisa Nielson, understands how you feel. Motivated by her own disillusionment with the way public schools today approach teaching, Nielson focuses on showing other educators ways that they can use freely available resources and technologies already within students’ grasps to make classes more engaging and relevant. Not only does Nielson deal with broad ideas about technology in the classroom, but also the nitty gritty details of implementation, so that teachers will be able to use her ideas without having to struggle against a budget process or other restrictions.

2. The Daring Librarian

Gwyneth Jones, the Daring Librarian herself, knows that librarians can have lots of fun. Approaching ed-tech with a sense of humor and plenty of Vines and cartoons to illustrate her stories, Jones writes a blog that entertains as it informs. Not only does she provide plenty of excellent content on new apps and ideas on how to use everyday websites as learning opportunities, but also a good measure of fun stories that will have you laughing out loud.

3. EdTech RoundUp

With weekly posts on the state of technology in education, EdTech RoundUp is the best place to go to find out the latest news related to education tech. The comprehensive coverage of news and recently released apps and devices allows you to find out the latest happenings in just one place every week. While this blog may not have as many original ideas as some other blogs in the field, the RoundUp provides you with the best place to keep informed on progress in the field.

4. Edudemic

Easily the largest hub for education content out there, Edudemic provides teachers with advice, ideas, and lesson plans to better integrate technology in the classroom. While a visit to this site may be a bit overwhelming at first due to the sheer amount of attention-grabbing content, you will always be able to find new ideas that make your visit worth your time.

5. MindShift

When you are tired of reading the same ideas over and over again written in different words on different blogs, head over to MindShift for something unique. Focusing on slightly edgier, more fringe topics within the educational technology field, MindShift opens your eyes to totally new ideas. With its wide scope and its dedication to sharing all unique opinions on education, MindShift will give you plenty to talk about with your colleagues.

6. Free Technology 4 Teachers

While ideas are great, implementation remains the biggest challenge for many teachers. A lack of resources and tools plagues many schools, making it more difficult to use technology in the classroom. Richard Byrne addresses this in his blog, Free Technology 4 Teachers. His well-organized site is a treasure trove of free apps, software, videos, and graphics that teachers can use in the classroom right away. Practical and clear, Byrne gives suggestions that even the least tech-savvy teacher can use.

7. Cycles of Learning

Who doesn’t like a good life hack? Ramsay Musallam recognized how useful hacks could be in classrooms, so he set up Cycles of Learning to share practical education tech hacks to make teachers’ lives just a bit easier. Once you see his TED Talk on sparking learning, you won’t be able to get enough of his content. By focusing on simple ways to inspire real learning in students using technology in the classroom, Musallam shows us that even learning can be hacked.

8. Edutopia

Hosted by the George Lucas Educational Foundation, Edutopia has plenty of well-indexed information on how technology can be used in classrooms. Since information is filed by age group and topic, teachers can easily get practical ideas that are relevant to their current curriculum without wading through lots of ideas that won’t quite work for their individual situations. With plenty of videos and fun quizzes, Edutopia can be a fun place to browse even if you aren’t looking for anything specific. Make sure to click on their “Trending Topics” section to find out what the hottest topics are currently in education technology.

9. Steve Hargadon

Don’t let the simple design and lack of flash fool you; Steve Hargadon’s blog provides plenty of worthwhile current information on educational technologies. A true ed-tech leader, Hargadon is the director of the Web 2.0 Labs, host of the Future of Education interview series, chair of the Social Learning Summit and the Learning 2.0 Conference, and co-chair of the annual Global Education and Library 2.0 worldwide conferences. As Hargadon is one of the top experts on educational technology, you can be assured that reading his blog will give you plenty of innovative ideas.

10. My Paperless Classroom

Sam Patterson, K-5 tech integration specialist, talks about his own experiences trying to implement tech ideas in classes in My Paperless Classroom. Not only does Patterson have some excellent ideas on how to effectively use technologies less commonly allowed in classes, including MineCraft worlds, toys, and video games, but he also candidly reveals some of the challenges and pitfalls of these technologies. Be prepared to learn what tech integration really means in the classroom.
