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.

Pamela – Small tip for your Windows notepad

Tech tip from Pamela:

Notepad

Who knew the humble Windows Notepad was capable of anything other than, well, taking text only notes.

If you’re searching for a simple application to write a diary or take daily notes, look no further than Notepad. Or of course you can always post here, at the Rise of the technology class. Hopefully we are always your first choice.

Other than that you can refer to windows humble application.

Well, with this tip you can make notepad automatically add the current day and time to a document as soon as you open it and save you the headache of doing so yourself.

To accomplish this:

1. Open Notepad

2. Type “.LOG” on the first line of the new document

3. Save the file and close Notepad

Now when you open the same file again, you’ll see that Notepad would have added the current Date and time to the document automatically.

Or you can always press F5  😀

I think that’s the easiest way.  But if you like complicated, go ahead and try the long way.

Kaito – ABC’s of Social Media Video. Funny.

Michael – Innovation vs. Invention

VHS Tapes?

This is hand-drawn

All of it. It’s not a photo and was recently created by an artist. I’m still trying to find the artist. So, someone will be drawing CD covers in 10 years since we download all our music. I am sure innovation trumps invention. With every new device people think the world will change overnight. The iPhone could be an exception. Things did change overnight. Otherwise, very few inventions changed the world as quickly. There was another tape format that looked just like these VHS tapes called “Betacam.” It didn’t last for home use, but was a breakthrough format for documentary makers and television stations. Most of us are innovators. Occasionally we think of something simple that hasn’t been made before. As this blog populates with more of you, discuss your innovation here. One of you will invent something new someday. The innovation that you collaborate with others will probably lead you there. Bill Gates. Steve Jobs. Sergei Brin. Inventors or Innovators? Or just great leaders?

Joshua – Apple killer? Nope!

1984 this “keyboard” was the computer!

I bet people in high school had no idea what a computer was…old old old (old) school. No wonder my mom can text! I look forward to the students from around the world checking in next week. Cool.3581592834_36f4a24811

Michael – This is an example of the new technology class…

“Youth Technology Corps (YTC) began when David Finkel, former high school teacher and community organizer, was looking for creative ways to engage students in an after school club. He brought used computers to his students and said “See what can you do with these”. Being naturally curious and creative, they took apart the computers, learned how to repair them, and then set up a computer lab for the school.”
