40 year search for world's most exciting curricula


My father Norman Macrae, End-poverty Keynsian at The Economist and I started this search in 1972 as my first employed was the UK's National Development Project for Computer Assisted Learning.

Who's Free Edu Who

Our 1984 book The 2025 Report on optimistic rational  chances of sustainability of net generation made it clear that open learning was the once chance we had for little sister networking to outlast and outwit Big Brother endgames. So yes we may be biassed in our top 3 curricula selections 1972-2012- which are your top 3?

  (the winner being celebrated in 2012 at Japan's Embassy in Dhaka- fitting 2 years after my father's passing because since 1962 father had preferred an Eastern hemisphere liberated initially by Japan's  (and later Korea's) peaceful and quality driven systems to military complex and neurotic tv advertisers online library of main Economist surveys of norman macrae starting with Consider Japan 1962--)

Number 1 BRAC and the Bangladesh Curricula of Nation Building By Poorest Women mostexcitingcurricula.doc mostexcitingcurricula.doc, 446 KB

Number 2 POP goes Health with Farmer and Kim and Haiti and Boston, and a slice of Soros Open Society and Ineteconomics, and Franciscan community good hope

Number 3 Kenya has the most exciting open technology youth hubs because since the race began in 1996 to linkin what mobile could do for the poorest  Kenya has so far been an open partner sans frontieres.

All of these curricula concern we because the world bank hasn't chosen to celebrate them with open learning campus yet.
