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:


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.


Jacqueline – YTC and Me

Being a part of Youth Technology Corps (www.ytcorps.org) has been one of the greatest experience that I’ve encountered. When I first started, I was a little bit nervous, because I didn’t know what were we really doing and I didn’t think I would be able to do whatever we were going to do. Along the way I’ve learned more and more about what we were doing and also made friends with some new people. Not only did i make some friends from school but I met a lot of really great people from Mexico and Ireland and having the chance to get to know them and learn more about their culture. Meeting new people from other countries and exploring the world of YTC to them. One of the other things we do every year for the program is that we go out to the community and teach young kids how to use some of the computer programs. This experience had taught me better people skills, and better at public speaking. Being apart of this program means so much me and i am proud of being in such a thing.
