20th century intelligence - ending poverty of half world without electricity -although Keynes 1936 (last capter general theiry money inetrest emplymen) asked Economists to take hipocrati oath as the profession that ended extreme poverty, most economists did the opposite. Whats not understandable is how educatirs failed to catalogue the lessons of the handful who bottom-up empowered vilages to collaboratively end poverty. There are mainly 2 inteligences to understand- Borlaug on food; fazle abed on everything that raised life expectancy in tropical viage asia from low 40s to 60s (about 7 below norm of living with electricity and telecomes). Between 1972 and 2001, Abed's lessons catalogued in this mooc had largelu built the nation of Bangladesh and been replicated with help of Unicef's James Grant acroo most tropical asian areas. What's exciting is the valley's mr ad mrs steve jobs invted Fazle Abed to share inteligences 2001 at his 65th birthday party. The Jobs and frineds promised to integrate abed's inteligence into neighborhod university stanfrd which in any event wanted Jobs next great leap the iphone. The Valley told abed to start a university so that women graduates from poor and rich nations could blend inteligence as Abed's bottom of the pyramid vilage began their journey of leapfrog modles now that gridd infarstructures were ni longer needed for sdiar and mobile. Abed could also help redesign the millennium goals which were being greenwashed into a shared worldwide system coding frame by 2016. There re at Abed's 80th birtday party , the easy bitwas checking this mooc was uptodate. The hard bit - what did Abed mean by his wish to headhunt a taiwanese american to head the university's 3rd decade starting 2020?

six dimensional education "squared" for nation building and 1 billion women sustain our species!

 which of these dimensions interest you most?

4.1 adult-lifelong edu- this is where billion womens empowerment began in 1972- why women and infants were literally starving to death in villages- so almost everyone fazle abed hired for a skill a village woman could make a business put of - eg growing rice, tending for 6 families infants while other village mothers worked on agriculture, learning oral rehydration; ; some adults started asking could they train to be teachers of kids 6-10

4.2  classrooms with one village and 25 kids aged 6-11 took off in mid 1980s - 30000 skills were franchised- hapines, confidence, peer to peer montessori style was the culture

4.3 resources for designing edu for teens were much more constrined- what took off was peer to peer apprentice spaces for particular skills as well as scholarships for those who made the most of primary; the whole area of non-classroom secondary matters everywhere that there is a livelihood mismatch- for 15 yeqrs now we have estimated the world is short of nearly 100 million last mile health workers- covid may have shown thats an under-estimate; secondary girls apprentice clubs have proved particularly successful in clarifying what skiils teens most want; finding enough trainers has been relatively simple for brac in bangladesh since most brac co-workers recruited as trainers in villages- 

5.3 brac internet from 1996 was the first time brac could search for 2.0 partners - previously there was no point hiring trainers / attracting investors unless solutions worked in villages without electricity-now brac had both second Generation To support eg village daughters moving to cities as well as possibility of experimenting with solar and mobile in villages- the need was for brac university - now brac could offer deep learning: village research and connect university research around the world with 4.4 new uni (squared now alumni of abed could blend the 6 age groups of traditional real education with anything digitall connections with mother earth's urgent climate etc demands can offer

4.5 what new to the world masters of arts do you think abed chose first? early childhood education - can you think of reasons he valued this global innovation in addition to it being the one age group brac hadn't educationally served?

4.6 abed asked for his legacy to be a luminaries network- each luminary to bring a different piece of the jigsaw education is everything in developing peoples and nations
