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.

Samantha – Silvestre Revueltas, our proud…

Today i want to talk about a very important person who was an artist and who was also from Santiago Papasquiaro Durango. His name is Silvestre Revueltas Sánchez, better known as “Silvestre Revueltas”.

12694405

He was born in Santiago Papasquiaro Durango, on December the 31st of 1899. He was a composer, musician, violinist and an orchest director. Revueltas is the greatest mexican composer. The oldest son of a family who had very important artist for mexican culture.

When he was young he went to study to the Conservatorio Nacional de Musica in Mexico. His music was very important around the world like Adagio, Danza geométrica, and others. He was inspired by the music of Claude Debussy. Silvestre traveled around the world and he lived in USA for a long time. But he died in Mexico city in October 5th of 1940.

On my opinion he was the best composer of America, when i hear his music, its like been in another time, so romantic, and strong at the same time, its something different, and most important of all is the fact that he is part of me and part of all the Santiago People. You shoul listen his music, i think you would like it.

Nikolas – Music

I love Music. My dad is in the music business and plays multiple instruments and I have been exposed to so many different types of music and I have seen the worldly effect it has. I myself do not play an instrument, god knows I’ve tried, but it has just never worked out. I am more of a music collector I would say. I am finding new stuff daily and have branched out to every type of music possible, except country, that is just terrible. I love finding new songs and artists and me and my friends are always exchanging new findings with each other.

With new advances in technology it has been extremely easy to be exposed to and to find new music with ease. iTunes is my go-to source and is great because it gives me recommendations to other songs or artists I might like. I use Internet sources also, Pandora is one of the websites I like. I am on these sources all of the time and go to many other places to. With out my computer or the Internet I would have never been able to get to the point where I am at now.  I have around 9000 songs and counting and I am eager to find more. It is a huge part of my life and I do not know what I would do without it.

Jacqueline – music, music, music!

I can’t say that I dislike music but I can’t also say that it has any impact on me, well not contemporary music that’s for sure. The music I’ve been listening to hasn’t really done anything to change what I think or how I feel.

The music that is played right now is very moronic. Nothing makes any sense in today’s music…just about how people feel when they break-up and how every relationship and its break-up was different from the other. The relationship songs are nonsense and almost every artist’s songs are all relationship song, it really doesn’t have a story to it, rather than something that says “I love you take me back” and the next song about the same person saying, “You hurt me and I want you away from me.” I’m so tired of it. Listening to the same thing over and over again, I’ve decided to start listening to some older stuff. I mean my friends were listening to them and my dad is such a huge fan of all those classic artist, so what’s gonna hurt if i listen to them.

zelinI remember hanging out with my dad when I was little, maybe around 7 or 8 and the first bands I have ever listened to were bands like The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Metallica and the very very first one was The Beatles. There was something about those bands that really got to me.

There was some sort of a strange but amazing vibe that I got from listening to them and I really enjoyed it. This went went on utill I started seventh grade, then I kind of turned away from it. It is such a shame that I walked away from that part of my life. But since seventh grade my brain was rotten with such toxin tunes. Like I said, it’s not all bad but it is to a point where it’s just pure garbage.

I guess where I am trying to go with this is that music changes through every generation and the more it changes the more and more it’s just plain trash.

“The Doors- People Are Strange”

“Miley Cyrus- The 7 Things I Hate About You”

You be the judge.  Miley or The Doors?

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.

Salvador – About Me


800px-EspañaLoc.svg

I as born in Pamplona/Iruña (Navarra/Nafarroa) the 29th of june 1993.
Now, I live in a small town called Orihuela/Oriola, situated in Alicante, south-east of Spain.

Orihuela is a monumental town, there are lots of gothic churches, palaces and old buildings. Orihuela has much history. Hundreds of years ago, Orihuela was one of the most important cities in Spain. 84.626 people live here now.

I like music, going to the cinema, reading, watching TV, skiing (I go skiing every year, I love skiing), swimming, going snorkeling, riding on bike, playing computer games.

I love the beach (I go to the beach every weekend and on holidays), I love the mountain too.

I rarely buy computer games, I download them on the internet.

Spanish films aren’t very good. I don’t  normally see Spanish films, I prefer hollybood films, but many of those films are very unreal.

I listen to Spanish music, but also a lot of music in English. I like all kind of music, no, sorry, I don´t like house and reggae – but especially like rock, hard rock, SKA, heavy. I like Mago D e Oz, Marea, Boikot…and many others.

On TV, I see Spanish programs, like “Salvados”, “Buenafuente”, “El Intermedio” and “Qué vida más triste”. I normally see American films. I see some TV series like “Aida”, “Aquí no hay Quien Viva” and American series like House, CSI and Criminal Minds.

I really enjoy reading. I like Harry Potter, like Samantha. My Spanish literature and language teacher is Rosa Cáceres, and she´s a writer. I’ve read one of her books and she writes very good. My fauvorite writers are Dan Brown, J.K Rowling, Ken follet, Tolkien and Ildefonso Falcones.

One of the best books I have read is “The sea cathedral”.

The story happens in Barcelona in the middle ages

Caridad – My musical tastes

I like a bit of everything. Classical music such as Beethoven and Mozart; Spanish pop music – The Rosario Flores, Pignoise; Irish pop music – The Script. Telenovelas’s music; “Las tontas no van al cielo,” “pasion de gavilanes,” “rebelte way.”; The typical music of the Disney factory; High School Musical, Hanna Montana, Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Alyson Stoner.

The kind of music I like most is the English pop; Leona Lewis, Ashley Tisdale, Craig Davis, Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift and many more.

*Telenovela: a series with great drama and it always leaves you wanting more. And this is because they leave you with the curiosity of what will happen in the next chapter.

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! 😀
