THE WORLD IS ON FIRE
a technology inferno is incinerating the status quo
Our country is in grave jeopardy because we are not adequately educating many of our children.
Join the conversation & collaborate to help our children - please respond to the brief survey below !!!
Millions of our children are failing to learn. Millions feel rejected, become disengaged and seek refuge with gangs, drugs, or violence. Whole generations of children have no hope of competing for positions at our universities or for skilled jobs in our economy – NO HOPE.
Knowledge is continuing to explode – Robots and AI will disrupt or displace many of today’s jobs. We must reinvent education – or many-many more will lose hope.
We have many great schools and great dedicated teachers – but our education technology infrastructure is horribly out-dated. Most of our knowledge is buried in centuries-old technology [paper textbooks]. This ancient technology prevents schools from providing personalized education – it promotes rigid class-wide instruction paths that are usually too fast or too slow for most students. Implementing America's Digital Education Platform (ADEP) for our schools is essential to:
- deliver personalized education essential to reach, teach, and retain our increasingly vulnerable students
- enable education materials, teachers, and students to keep pace with the exploding level of world knowledge and complexity
- create an effective education ecosystem that removes logistical hurdles, resource limitations, and disruptions, while enabling educators and students to concentrate on knowledge development and learning
A Digital Education Platform will dramatically reduce time teachers spend presenting material and increase time for coaching students and teams. It will empower teachers to assess & assist student progress much more efficiently and to teach much-much more. If a student falls behind, the student will have a clear, personalized path and tools to recover, to stay engaged, and to SUCCEED!
A Digital Education Platform will engage students and parents, it will facilitate a powerful Active Learning Paradigm, unlock and expand curriculum into many more areas, and provide essential tools to support early childhood development and solve major issues that cause students to disengage and fail.
But we cannot cross this chasm in multiple leaps.
WE MUST HAVE A NATIONAL MOONSHOT.
We must have all states join with our educators and leading technology companies to design a platform - which our schools and teachers manage - to carry us into the next century.
Let the journey begin with the first step - let's start the conversation - listening to each other and collaborating, building consensus on how we must change to improve our public education system.
In the Survey below, please indicate whether you agree or disagree with these Top 10 Priorities.
Then, if you would like - go to the Comments Page and share additional thoughts and ideas on these 10 priorities; and go to ADEP to help shape plans for our Digital Education Platform. We will combine and distill the feedback and invite you to continue collaborating to build a consensus plan of action to help our children and our country.
If you are willing join the conversation - certainly our leading technology companies and educators will follow !!!
