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.

Kaito – Do you forget we are connected?

Culture. It is a very good word.

Around the world. How many websites you can tell about the culture? Too many. I find a popular site, to share with my friends. It is – J! – ENT for pop culture, fashion, music, talks and entertainment.

It is for all countries. People’s lives and the way we are talking. I have to travel to countries in Europe, America and India.

Today this information = statement of thanks to the computer and I think our precious mobile phone.

I know about the world with a connection to the Internet. If no internet I would not know this place.

Pamela – I met the Eggman

Hi everyone, I know you haven’t so much about me and here is an opportunity for me to get you to know me.

For the past few years I’ve been a Beatles fan –proud of it 🙂 —

As I was surfing the net I found this awesome introduction video from the new 360 game The Beatles Rock band :D.

To be honest I haven’t played the video game.. but I’m dying to do so. I heard it has some really good songs 🙂 such as:
Day Tripper
Here comes the sun
I am the Walrus!!
I want to hold your hand
and of course
Octopus’s Garden

I hope you like it, and let me know how it goes! 😀

Aruna – Bittersweet but connected

Do we take things for granted? I wonder how students our age who live in underdeveloped countries would feel if they had to all of a sudden use a computer everyday? Or own a TV? OR watch a movie? That we take for granted. We know all about kids in Africa because we are connected. They probably know very little about about us. Let’s invent some way to let them know who we are.

Aruna – Graduating in India

51iQAI3hDL._SL500_I know I’m a little early posting this but thought this is utterly tragic…

Everyone around the world thinks that because there are companies to outsource work here in India, that the mass population are digital geniuses. I am surprised to read the following article. “80% of high school graduates are not readily employable?” How is that possible? Surfing the internet doesn’t obviously get you a job…

“There is a cool program here that has launched a pilot to enable 500 8th through 12th grade students with little or no computer experience to develop and certify digital skills. It is developed by Rotary Club of New Delhi through corporate sponsorship from Intel, Spice Telecom and CyberLearning.

Based on the success of the project, this pilot could be extended to more than 500 schools by as early as July 2009. “Reports indicate that 80 percent of graduates produced by India are not readily employable, so it’s imperative that we start focusing on schools,” said Pankaj Rai, chairman of the Rotary Club of New Delhi Literacy Committee in India.
