Rise of the Technology Class

These conversations are between students from Ecuador, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the US who see technology serving a higher purpose: A counter-culture to their predecessors. This is evidence of a new type of generative class who apply technology to their creativity with art, music, science and involvement within the community. Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Many of the authors on rise of the technology class are part of Youth Technology Corp. An organization that helps students connect around the world.  Although YTC focuses on technology, what they do for young people and communities serves a higher purpose.

“Most after-school programs ‘teach’ a fixed content, and repeat each semester. They are not set up to allow each individual student to develop their own skills and perspective over time. YTC creates an environment where the curiosity and ambition of each teen is given a chance to come out and be supported and encouraged. They start out doing something fun and physical with ‘cool’ and relevant technology that provides quick and meaningful rewards and a sense of personal mastery.” -YTC Founder Dave Finkel
