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.

Rise of the Technology Class. A recap.

Newsweek Tweens

We are keeping these posts relevant to tweens as we witness the evolution of a highly intelligent young generation. There are no subject filters here. There are basic rules of engagement and the posts generally unedited, except for non-english speaking students who use Google to translate. Filtering basic educational information away from young people is widely debated.

How will this generation (12-17 roughly) move through the next decade? As committed to ethical behavior as the current generation is demonstrating? Are young voters currently passively speaking out or confident to speak up? The difference is between active or passive. Is access just a utility? I think not. It’s enabled empowered truth, a voice that didn’t have opportunity for audience just a decade or so ago? For the young people who question why their passion for truth is being discounted, this blog offers just another voice to them. They are fully aware (with school and parental oversight) that Rise of the Technology Class is also collecting their words as data.

Academic leaders are committed to understanding how the interactive engagement changes the lives of families, young people and those who are educating students while away from home.

Henry Jenkins, formally of MIT, now USC, is the “Marshall Mcluhan” of modern communication. Marshall would be proud to see Henry’s work today. The debate continues.
