When Andrew Shirman was a Fellow in a Teach For China classroom in the mountains of rural Yunnan province, he noticed that some of the lowest performing students were squinting to see the board. Realizing this was a problem he could solve, he worked with other Teach For China Fellows to launch the first phase of Education in Sight, an organization with a mission to improve the academic performance of low-income students with poor vision by providing low-cost glasses and eye care education.
Teach For All in the Media: PISA and the Global Education Conversation
Making the Grade in Global Education
Recent headlines around the world feature a hotly contested debate about how societies should educate their youth for the global economy. On Tuesday, December 3, Shanghai's school system was named best in the world by OECD, and the United States came in slightly below average among industrialized nations. These results shined a spotlight on the relative strengths and weaknesses of education systems in China, the US, and countries around the world, but when the stakes are excellence and equity in education, pitting nations against each other is taking a narrow view.

Mr. Huang became principal of Qiao Tou Lian He school at the age of 25, not because he was specifically trained for the post, but because he had been the only educated person in his village. He’s a dynamic leader who is squarely focused on supporting, developing and evaluating his teachers, of whom only a handful have a high school degree and more than basic teacher training.
there are a lot of different ways to think about AI but one simple question - have you wished there was a tool that updated you on all your connections at somewhere like linkedin - ai could be constantly analysing who was newly reconnecting whom with your subnetworks on what - your own news on initiatives you might want to keep in touch with - there are 2 reasons why ai should be better than your brain alone for such analysis - 1 you get to a stage where your hundreds of direct connections each with their hundreds of connections is too much to humanly analyse even though historically thats how humans have passed through life (with people they trust or dont trust, on contexts they give their time on ...) second making an algorithm both correct enough and simple enough takes too much time for one person to do but co9uld be a great appReplyDelete
you might ask yourself why doesnt linkedin provide such a tool - i am afraid my answer is ultimately that might stop you from need ting to do so much work on other microsoft tools
