100 greatest friends of china and sustainable youth worldwide

For those of us parents who want worldwide youth 2016 to 2030 to be the greatest #learninggeneration, a key question is what curricula should schools celebrate with youth? This question depends on hypotheses. For example i believe the half of the world under 30- today are the last of 3 generations who can determine whether mother earth is joyfully capable of sustaining 8 to 10 billion peoples livelihoods instead of 3 to 4 billion or zero. picture sustainability goals

So there is no point reading any more of this unless you agree that helping empower youth to live and work on sustainability goals is irreversibly urgent

If you do value youth urgently in this way then one of the curriculum question worth asking is what languages are most valuable for worldwide youth to be skilled in. My hypothesis is mother tongue, chinese, english and coding (maths) 

For purposes of this debate, i assume literacy in mother tongue is obviously an educational right, and when it comes to coding the minimum a mobile child needs is a friend who is coding literate- then co-creativity with digital media is socially possible otherwise you are controlled by others use of digital

So what are the opportunities and risks about valuing chinese and english as integral open languages of youth sustainability?

More than half the world is aged under 30 that's over 3.5 billion humans. What curricula elders have designed into schooling matters. Of those 3.5 billion, half a billion live inside China. Its my hypothesis this is the most critical segment of youth uniting sustainability actions.  I mean what chances do we have of celebrating sustainability system designs the world over if this Chinese segment are not celebrated for innovating sustainability wherever they can. I have been privileged to do some deep qualitative interviews with some chinese aged 20 to 30. They are a group with extraordinary values (please mail if you can help improve this study/profile). Values such as coming from the one child generation. Values such as responsibility for health of both parent and grandparents who in most cases put the families savings into educating the 20 to 30 year old. As recently as 1976, China was closed to the outside world in the sense that it had no businesses doing trade other than state owned ones. Consequently questioning the purpose of the first 40 years of Chinese Entrepreneurship is seen as a smart purpose of media that develops people, vilages, famlies, communities. In many cases this has created a desire in 20 to 30 year old chinese to travel and be curious about the rest of the world- how can you sustain trade with it without such courageous youthful curiosity. This is where English as 21st C comes of age remains accidentally the main curricula today for worldwide exploration. So much of history and science is still diarised more in english libraries than other languages. So much is easier to code or at least collaboratively hack, open source and app on positive social innovation with other coders if you can speak enough english to be interpersonally confident in your ability to openly connect.

 Whether my core values in mapping sustainability world possible are right or wrong, what follows is my demand from all Brits -or at least Scots as that's where my family's worldwide home has been for over 5 generations whose purpose i have tried to understand:

lets help any greatest #learningeneration youth who is passionate to  do so learn english as socially and economically as possible - how? becomes one of the urgent next questions; another urgent question is who will collaborate in this- the young chinese themselves? their leaders? superports like hong kong singpaore dubai taiwan? supercoders? today. most successful commonwealth countries that sustained the experience of speaking english eg austraila new zealand and canada;  the other past colonies we brits still owe huge depths of co-learning to for the geo-cultural-economic muddles that history in the age of not being technologically advanced enough to transparently communicate worldwide about what family purposes we all most love and value serving? ...

its in this cotext i permit myself a hip hip hurrh when gordon brwon invited 30 world leaders to pitch 3 minute views on the future of education, and China's commissoner of educatiin said this- MR Jack Ma - United Nations NY 18 Sept 2016

I agree with all what my fellow commissioners talk about money as a big problem, and the vision of needing to linkin the greatest #LearningGeneration

I believe that philanthropy can bring new momentum, new thinking, and real results for

for the most vulnerable young people across the world- but this will require strong leadership and bold action by individuals, organisations and governments willing to drive the change



But we could not see our challenge as only about money – money is not enough


Education is about guaranteeing the future- and in the future, the bad news is that technology will kill many of the jobs that exist today even the jobs that we feel proud of. But the good news is that the new economy will create even more new jobs


BUT are we teaching our young people to compete and succeed in the new economy?

I don’t think so We need to do more about that. We have been educating our young people in the same way for more than 2000 years in the classroom. 80% of what we teach our children happens in a classroom.


It is time for that to change- we should anticipate 40 to 50% of the learnings that will need to take place outside the classroom in the real world through the mobile phone and internet. In this way we need to mobilise more cooperation and organisation to facilitate this. And yes money is important but more important is that we create new models for education to prepare our young people not for yesterday and today but tomorrow – we need also put our limited resources and money not only on the IQ but the EQ and LQ (The Q of Love). We need to develop the creativity and confidence of lour children. This report is just the beginning. Lets reimagine education and turn lour bold vision into action. Money is important but its not the only resource top accomplish our goal- and should not be the excuses for not improving lout future education

dr ranga hope trip to india was good- lot to catch upon - when is earliest we could have quick meeting?


also i very much want to understand learning dashboards- for me when one looks at eg rachel the question is how to suggest smart ways through the content for teachers and students and as we find out smart routes how do they become evolving dashboards

 (and possible connections to blockchain)


have you studied dashboards- i am wondering whether this is a benchmark or if there is something better than this

Business & Economics | Acrobatiq


CAN WE FORM ENGLISH LEARNING CLUB -thing  also see very little on teaching english at rachel and want to ask why wouldnt intel want the world best club of teachers of english forming around rachel world possible curriculum catalogue--- obviously many people have spent much more time on how to teach english than me but here are some extraordinary english teaching experiments i have come across - if i could add a few more i could probably hit many british council offices in an expert survey  


ranga is teaching english a priority course in any of the african projects you are expecting to do  


there are 3 leads to people developing english teaching that could be world class


1 the british council chose english in action for brac to put on the primary nationwide ekarning platform fior bangladesh - i wonder if there is an indian parallel


2 from watching a training workshop for 3 hours of shannon may About | Bridge International Academies i believe the greatest teaching movement in africa for poor families is the system she has developed at bridges international (more to the point the china wise and brooking summit believe in shannon may too) - if there is any chance that rachel and yazmi are scaling up in this area approaching shannon as a possible partner and including british council too is now or never opportunity




3 at a different level qin is interested in advanced courses - eg how she becomes a translator in technology areas- that seems to be exactly a curriculum jack ma should want to be involved with

Alibaba founder Jack Ma unveils ambitious plan

Mission: 100 million new jobs

By Dana McCauley

He already runs the world's biggest online shopping company, but Alibaba founder Jack Ma is not satisfied.

The Chinese billionaire has unveiled an even more ambitious plan to expand the company's reach across the globe, creating 100 million new jobs and transforming the global economy to create a more equitable world.

It may sound pie-in-the-sky, but the goal forms part of mission statement of the US$261 billion company's visionary executive chairman.

In a letter to shareholders, Ma outlined Alibaba's achievements of the past financial year - including a gross merchandise turnover of more than $195 billion (1 trillion RMB), an "unprecedented" figure - before looking to the future.

"We have more than 430 million annual active buyers, which means one out of every three individuals in China has made a purchase on our retail marketplaces," Ma wrote.

But, he said, while proud of Alibaba's online shopping achievements, "we want to do far more", saying that the benefits of globalisation had not been spread evenly, but that "digital disruption will bring us closer to a level playing field for young people and small businesses".

"We are not merely trying to shift buy/sell transactions from offline to online, nor are we changing conventional digital marketing models to squeeze out a little additional profit," he wrote.

"We are working to create the fundamental digital and physical infrastructure for the future of commerce, which includes marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing, big data and a host of other fields."

The Alibaba group of companies, founded in 1999, accounts for 60 per cent of all Chinese online sales, and this year overtook Walmart as the world's largest retailer.


It has made Ma the second richest man in Asia, with a net worth of US$28.5 billion.


It's through cloud computing that Alibaba aims to expand its reach, and the company has been investing in the technology as part of a strategy that sees shoppers' data as the contemporary equivalent of mineral riches.

"Over the next 30 years, with computing power as the new 'technology breakthrough' and data as the new 'natural resource,' the landscape of retail, financial services, manufacturing and entertainment will be transformed," Ma wrote, forecasting a decades-long period of transformation.

"The internet revolution is a historical inflection point, much like when electricity was introduced, and it may have an even greater impact," he predicted.

Alibaba's mission, he said, was to "empower merchants with the ability to transform and upgrade their businesses for the future" and "help companies all over the world to grow".

"We believe, the commerce infrastructure we have created in China - marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data, all working in concert - can be applied on a global scale to lift up small and medium businesses and ordinary consumers around the world."

Eight years after launching, Alibaba Cloud hosts 35 per cent of Chinese websites, while delivering cloud computing and big data services.


Ma said Alibaba was constantly adapting to the changing e-commerce environment, as staying at the forefront of innovation was key to its continued success.

"In the coming years, we anticipate the birth of a re-imagined retail industry driven by the integration of online, offline, logistics and data across a single value chain," he said.

"With e-commerce itself rapidly becoming a "traditional business," pure e-commerce players will soon face tremendous challenges."

A shift to mobile revenue was one such change, he said, with mobile climbing from a single-digit percentage to three-years of total revenue from Alibaba's Chinese retail marketplaces, in the space of two years.

"This is why we are adapting, and it's why we strive to play a major role in the advancement of this new economic environment," Ma said.

Innovations like Alibaba's Qianniu app, which helps online businesses to improve sales and marketing while enhancing efficiency, were an example of the type of projects the company aimed to focus on.

"In 20 years, we hope to serve two billion consumers around the world, empower 10 million profitable businesses and create 100 million jobs," Ma said, adding: "This will be an even more difficult journey than the one behind us."

LISTEN : Newstalk ZB Political Editor Barry Soper speaks to Andrew Dickens on KPMG Early Edition

Mr Ma - who's worth around $50 billion - met with John Key in Beijing late yesterday. He made his money through founding the online commerce platform Ali Baba.

Standing alongside the Prime Minister, he heaped praise on the country, which he says is loved by many Chinese.

"At least 20 of my colleagues retired from Ali Baba. They're all very young, in their 40s, they all go to New Zealand."

"I asked what they do apart from the golf and green things and they say it's the people there."

It wasn't all social, with the Chinese billionaire also talking business.

Jack Ma told the entrepreneurs luncheon Kiwi businesspeople find it difficult to access the Chinese market.

Mr Ma said he wants to make that easier with his multi-platform organisation.

"We have Ali Baba University. We would either have courses in New Zealand or invite the entrepreneurs in New Zealand to stay in China for two weeks for training."

"The second is that we're going to open an Ali Baba business embassy next year in New Zealand."

John Key is in China meeting business and political leaders.



Innovation "Made in China" - The Case of Alibaba and the role of Net-based Small Business

Innovation is a key driver for economic development and social progress and small business is one of the best ways for people to express their willingness and capability to innovate.  Pervasive business ownership has, therefore, been the foundation in many societies for the continued improvement of people’s economic wellbeing. In the People’ Republic of China, however, private business ownership was prohibited between 1957 and 1978. Productive innovations were extremely restricted and as a consequence, China’s economy was on the verge of collapse by the end of 1978. The Chinese people had suffered a historic setback.

Alibaba’s growth, driven by unleashing grassroots entrepreneurship, has become an exemplar of China’s innovation in the 21st century.  Started by 18 young people in 1999, Alibaba has grown into a giant global internet platform and has made many invaluable contributions to China’s progress. Highlighting the importance of pervasive small business ownership in unleashing grassroots innovation and improving economic wellbeing, Professor Lowrey will discuss Alibaba’s innovative strategies and explain the economic theory behind its inspiring success.




Dr. Ying Lowrey is Professor of Economics at Tsinghua University and Deputy Director of the Tsinghua Research Center for Chinese Entrepreneurs, and a member of the Academic Committee for Alibaba Group Research Institute. Her teaching and research interests include economics of innovation and entrepreneurship in the internet and platform economy, the modern microfinance market, business demographics, characteristics of business owners, and the role of free enterprise and competition in the macroeconomy. 

She received her economics Ph.D. from Duke University, economics MA from Yale University and mathematics BS from Wuhan University. Before joining Tsinghua University in 2012, she served as senior economist at the Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration and has taught economics at George Washington University and San Diego State University.

Founder of Ali Baba commits his work for Chinese on internet to generate 100 million microentrepreneur jobs in 2010s - who else would you vote at the centre of 100 million job creation leagues?
=====================update sumer 2016:
unlike oiher years spent with bangaldeshi inspired youth, i spent 2015-2016 mainly with a class of chinese female students - what brilliant minds and tirelss sources of human energy - i hope this summary of why the whole world can celebrate what jack ma is doing is near to the mark - but as always look forward to editing any errors which are mine alone washington dc text 240 316 8157
was english language tutoring

In 1995 he was sent to the usa on an exchange mission and encountered the worldwideweb - then unknown in China. He determined the www would be the biggest job creating innovation of his (or his generations) life and hopefully of every Chinese entrepreneur he could valuably link into.

Over the next 15 years his wizard coding teams went from something that was little more than an electronic yellow pages for small businesses to conceiving sustainability generation's 2 greatest retailing platforms china or the world may ever have seen..

the taobao platform is the most valuable job creating concept retailers have ever mediated because it reverses the western trend of globalisiation of retailers, bankers and big corporations squeezing out local and small enterprises from having a market; how taobao did that is an extraordinarily detailed story but note how Ma was concerned to ensure even the most cut-off of Chinese villagers could start up on tao bao (rural ecommerce is one of the innovations that Ma has led the www purpose to linkin)

His other mall was pitched at the more usual high cost fashions of big global merchandisers. Because of complex property laws in chinese cities, most expensive retailers are not much of a joy to shop in. So ali baba created a lifestyle -eg celebrate singles day 11/11 shopping virtually rather than the physically exhausting interaction in The West's biggest shopping days of the year)

SO 365/24/7 consumers of ali baba can choose who they value developing most with their purchasing power as well as searching merchandise with global image or local cultural joy

Alibaba has become china's and probably the word's largest retailing channel. It does this with next to no merchandise but brilliant coding so that every store front on its platforms delivers with equal reliability. Hunting out exactly how Ma forms partnerships so that big data analysis benefits the smallest enterprises and most local consumers ought to be a job of whomever is sustainability goals greatest economist.

Intriguingly to ensure he could compete with the chinese internet companies that raced to co-create the www that Ma had opened space for in china, Ma IPO'd Alibaba through a process 2010-2015 while developing his secret sustainability weapon under private ownership. AlIpay is china's number 1 financial inclusion delivery system and maybe global youth most humanly productive coding achievement to date.

Comparing china's top 10 internet properties with the west's is very interesting. Are the consuming behaviours on ali baba more sustainable than those on amazon or ebay or paypal? Are the learnng behaviours on baidu more sustaining of youth than on google or coursera or microsoft's linkedin. Time will tell but note how speaking english, chinese and coding (as well as mother tongue) are probably what educators anywhere on planet earth should NOW be most valuing their global youth's future freedom to thrive entrepreneurially around.
