Science, Technology and Innovation for a New Generation
from http://www.barakobama.com

The Problem

We need to connect citizens with each other to engage them more fully and directly in solving the problems that face us. We must use all available technologies and methods to open up the federal government, creating a new level of transparency to change the way business is conducted in Washington and giving Americans the chance to participate in government deliberations and decision-making in ways that were not possible only a few years ago.

America risks being left behind in the global economy: Revolutionary advances in information technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology and other fields are reshaping the global economy. Without renewed efforts, the United States risks losing leadership in science, technology and innovation. As a share of the Gross Domestic Product, American federal investment in the physical sciences and engineering research has dropped by half since 1970.

Too many Americans are not prepared to participate in a 21st century economy: A recent international study found that U.S. students perform lower on scientific assessments than students in 16 other economically developed nations, and lower than 20 economically developed nations in math performance. Only one-third of middle class physical science teachers are qualified to teach in that subject, and only one-half of middle school math sciences have educational background in that subject area.

Prepare Adults for a Changing Economy

Create a national network of public-private business incubators: Obama and Biden will support entrepreneurship and spur job growth by creating a national network of public-private business incubators. Business incubators facilitate the critical work of entrepreneurs in creating start-up companies. Obama and Biden will invest $250 million per year to increase the number and size of incubators in disadvantaged communities throughout the country.

          Invest in the sciences: Obama and Biden support doubling federal funding for basic research and changing the posture of our federal government from being one of the most anti-science administrations in American history to one that embraces science and technology. This will foster home-grown innovation, help ensure the competitiveness of U.S. technology-based businesses, and ensure that 21st century jobs can and will grow in America.

          Deploy next-generation broadband: Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe we can get broadband to every community in America through a combination of reform of the Universal Service Fund, better use of the nation's wireless spectrum, promotion of next-generation facilities, technologies and applications, and new tax and loan incentives.

I was wondering if there was any way we could work with you or if you think there are organisations we should be working with to help them education teens.

Financial literacy

This Webquest asks students to define the question “What is Money”? and then create an alternative system for money to use within the school building.  It requires students to research with the purpose of finding alternative money systems and recognizing the real values and needs of a community.This project is well-written as well as visually entertaining.  If one does not use this as a classroom project, it is well worth looking at as an example of a well-written Webquest project.

 http://www.adcracker.com/2008/index.htm This site works students through the advertising process.  It allows students to review guidelines and advertisements on how to create effective advertisements for visual media.  The students can then divide into groups and create their own advertisement.  The advertisements can be submitted and then evaluated by AdCracker. This project gives excellent examples and guidelines where students understand the “whys” of why some advertisements work and other don’t.

http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/babysitting/index.html This project entails setting up a business for babysitting.  It details how to set up the business, what knowledge of children is needed, advertising and pricing of services.

Greetings again.

Digital Native youth can help preserve elder's stories and wisdom for all future generations, as but one example of intergenerational culturally appropriate innovations - to build 21st Century skills related to Ecommerce, telework and more....

You might find the Elder's Flipalbum youtube video of interest at http://youtu.be/huWWzNz0ePM

 At http://youtube.com/fodasz  there are Native Webraising very short videos, a sample short Ecommerce success story (batsbatsbats.com) and just a few other short videos, as examples of what we might all create together. The 3 minute Metlakatla Art Marketing video from this past September's visit might be of interest. I have many hours of HD video from the September Metlakatla Potlatch that Senator Kookesh attended, but have not yet edited or posted any of it. KACN-TV will be broadcasting Lone Eagle interviews with three generations of women/young ladies discussing how "potlatch is coming back" and that digital is already a part of Native culture. I have six DVD's with many hours from the potlatch if anyone is interested.

Here's the type of innovations we can use to motivate Alaskan Native youth to engage in digital workforce training....


A dozen Ipad apps for storytelling, and a dozen best of the best by topic listings are below, from Roz, a retired librarian in Pedro Bay, who is taking "Social Media for Educators."

But first,  here is an OUTSTANDING reading article on the booming viability of badges as alternative certifications, from a Jamaican listserv on Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) for Development. Of relevance is reference to their use by the Khan Academy, with support from the McArthur foundation, Mozilla Foundation, Gates foundation, etc.

Badges' Earned Online Pose Challenge to Traditional College Diplomas  https://chronicle.com/article/Badges-Earned-Online-Pose/130241/

"We have to question the tyranny of the degree," says David Wiley, an associate professor of instructional psychology and technology at Brigham Young University. Mr. Wiley is an outspoken advocate of so-called open education, and he imagines a future where screenfuls of badges from free or low-cost institutions, perhaps mixed with a course or two from a traditional college, replace the need for setting foot on a campus. "As soon as big employers everywhere start accepting these new credentials, either singly or in bundles, the gig is up completely."
this is a long way off I guess. but what about the implications for places like Jamaica for example where only a small privilaged minority have a tertiary level education? this badges thing might be useful here - but as they say in the article its all about industry recognition of any new certification system...
