    and the Futures of Education
    Developing Competencies for the AI Era

     "First, the development of online education contributes to the promotion of fairer and better-quality education," Bai said that at the beginning of the year, the COVID-19 outbreak left more than 1.4 billion students and youths around the world facing the interruption of education. As a response, TAL Education Group quickly launched online public welfare free classes, sending the whole subject and a large number of quality-oriented education courses to thousands of households through online live broadcast technology, with more than 60 million daily hits on the live stream lessons.

    Meanwhile, TAL Education Group also completed the free deployment of the live broadcast teaching system for 595 public schools, benefiting more than 30,000 teachers, he added.

    A research of the Education Research Institute of TAL Education Group and the Beijing Normal University has showed that online education could make up for the scarcity of educational resources in underdeveloped areas and effectively promote educational fairness, said the chairman.

    He added that through the cooperation with China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation and the "Xiwang.com" platform for public welfare educational resources, TAL Education Group has delivered teaching resources to remote mountainous areas in the scarcity of educational resources.

    "At present, 40 counties and districts in 18 provinces have been covered, benefiting more than 100,000 teachers and students."

    In Sichuan Province's Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture, TAL Education Group customized Yi-Mandarin bilingual learning module for preschool children, said Bai. "It integrates speech recognition, semantic evaluation and other technologies and loved by children."

    He added that United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) awarded the Certificate for the 2020 Demonstration Project on AI and Inclusive Innovation to the Project, recognizing the contribution of the project to the protection of minority languages and the promotion of fairness and inclusion.

    Also on Monday, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Education Stefania Giannini signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Wan Yiting, Executive President of TAL Education Group. The two parties will establish Internet and AI-based online study systems that are capable of withstanding crises on a global scale.

    "Second, the development of AI is promoting the educational reform and innovation, with the future prospect turning up," Bai saidan Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) Secretariat Thailand

    Global Education Layout of "One Body and Two Wings"

    Innovation is the soul of a nation’s progress, and education is the cornerstone of social progress. Everyone has the right to equitably enjoy education, and "sharing educational resources and inheriting human civilization" is the unique corporate sentiment of Weidong Cloud Education. Since its inception, Weidong Cloud Education has been advancing towards its position as a “Global Internet Education Platform Operator”, and strives to build a lifelong education ecosystem that benefits the world by creating a global education layout of “one body and two wings”.

    At present, Weidong Cloud Education relies on its unique position in the field of international Internet education, using domestic high-quality education platform applications as the "main body" to build an open PaaS cloud platform. With the "Europe and America + Asia and Africa" dual route pattern as the "two wings" to comprehensively promote the internationalization strategy.

    In China, on the one hand, Weidong Cloud Education strives to build a middleground education field that meets the national conditions. With the help of international resource advantages, the coordinated development at home and abroad provides the country with high-end talents and a large number of employment opportunities. Business cover 24 provinces and 169 cities in urban areas and counties. On the other hand, Weidong Cloud Education will make full use of Qingdao International Vocational Education City built by the group to build an "Artificial Intelligence + Internet Education + Education Equipment Manufacturing" 100 billion-level industrial cluster, and strive to build a vocational education innovation development demonstration zone and vocational education institution gathering area, industry-education integration pioneer area, and "Belt and Road" international vocational education platform.

    In the direction of Europe and the United States, Weidong Cloud Education gives priority to the output of education content, provides training services for the world's top 500 enterprises through the acquisition of demos, the second largest vocational education and training group in Europe. It also provides high-quality resources for the development of domestic higher education through the acquisition of Brest business school in France. In the direction of Asia and Africa, Weidong Cloud Education prioritizes the layout of the education market. Through cooperation with the UNESCO ICHEI, it has successively deployed “Weidong Smart Classroom” in Pakistan, Cambodia, Egypt, Djibouti and other countries along the “Belt and Road” to provide local universities with smart teaching tools and distance learning platforms. Through cooperation with the UNESCO IITE, both sides will jointly promote the construction of "Future Schools" in six countries: Mauritius, Namibia, Nigeria, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan.

    Unique advantages in international society resources


    Weidong Cloud Education has a strong international social resource advantage. It has signed strategic cooperation with UNESCO and Shanghai Cooperation Organization respectively, and has extensive cooperation with relevant member countries in the fields of education, culture, science and technology.

    education's greatest leap forward summits sarting 2021 quarter 4 - glasgow &

     can you help - rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

    ... make a calendar of the first educational-sustainability events where people meet again after covid.

     I am assuming my family’s home town Glasgow is one and friends there are already arranging the middle saturday of cop26 nov 2021 to be when youth representatives of every schooling district in Scotland come together and greet counterparts from all over the world in person or virtually

    I would love to see the middle east host one of these comeback summits for humanity and worldwide youth engagement. Can you share you views with me - my first guess that the summit connected with the UAE expo probably December will be optimal; actually Qatar will probably hold one too but I understand that politics may not make that the most unifying one; also while my family’s greatest friends in japan probably are not going to host the Olympics they hoped for they can be the relay between the middle east expo and theirs in 2025


    I assume the UN will host a meta-event- I am not sure whether that is September New York or somewhere else


    I love Chinese diaspora explorations of family’s futures- probably Singapore is the simplest space to unite a summit around . When it comes to poorest rural mothers. 15 visits to Bangladesh have helped me understand who’s who- and one university there is trying to linkin 50 other universities around educational transformation. Two of america’s biggest billionaires have supported the emergence of these mothers networks but not yet the whole college coalition

    It may sound naiive but when dad at the economist and i thought of education as key to sustainability – as we did n our 1984 book the 2025report.com - we segment trust/joy of the world into parents and the rest mainly youth; in the broadest sense education is about we the elders choosing how youth’s time is spent accessing livelihood knowhow which replicated across communities helps live and livelihoods thrive everywhere- according to technologists at www.futureoflife.org that’s at a tipping point in 2020s – one last chance for humanizing artificial intelligence

    Could you tell me time/day to send you a zoom invitation to discuss further?  cris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

Sir Fazle was as modest as he was determined- he used to say, the poorest women do all the hard work, my best friends decide there is something they want to do with their life that applies to all of us., as an engineer i simply listen out for a beautiful local solution and pick ones i can find ways of helping villagers scale massively

    we are going through all the transcripts of fazle - to collate his advice on university - do you have any chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

    70s resilient community change disaster relief to bottom-up to direct cash transfer

    sir fazle took on the challenge of building a national service eg health - where none existed in villages ie places without electricity grids or running water- which do you think mattered most when building a health service - health servant leaders or financial wizards?


    80s last mile health servants - the first lesson 100000 villages need to share- cataloguing vilage businesses of para health and nutrition- change aid part 2 planting sustainable microfranchise business models wherever village women can energise them

    90s building girls schools

    00s staying ahead of tech to go global, national, and village

    10s banking for a billion unbanked with fintech and succession project - the global uni of poverty

      BACK IN 1984 -our book 2025 report explained why we believed survival of our species would depend on 21st nations spending at least 5% of their budget on transforming education:
      go online
      twin classes worldwide to search for best solutions/trainers of solutions every community needed for next girl or boy born having a great chance at life

      paradoxically the west biggest nations have failed in that until today a virus has forced online education and working worldwide

      this would be a good time to listen to the favorite educator and economist o a billion poorest girls - fazle abed

    • Reorient MIT to not only deliver the latest advances in computer science and AI but also discover the power of computing in every field of study on campus, while ensuring that the future of computing is shaped by insights from other disciplines.
    • Create 50 new faculty positions located both within the College and jointly with other academic departments across MIT.
    • Provide a structure for collaborative education, research, and innovation in computing across all of MIT’s schools.
    • Educate students in every discipline to be “bilingual,” so they can responsibly use and develop computing technologies to help make a better world.
    • Transform education and research in societal, public policy, and ethical considerations relevant to computing.
    The founding of the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing is both a big leap into the future — and a natural next step for an institution that has been at the forefront of computing and AI from the start. 

    existing departments, institutes, labs, and centers at MIT are now part of the college:
    The Schwarzman College of Computing hosted a forum on Feb. 12 2020 for members of the MIT community to learn more about the initial organizational structure of the college. The slides from the event can be viewed here.
