this story is roughly true - if you want indian or barcelona international school experiential learning reports of it ask javeed who will be back from india in new york in january or marta of experiential leaning at barcelonas international school who i first met in wise madrid and who knows chinas deepest end poverty in beijing schools coordinator and like javeed has permissions to ask qatar foundation who their world wide partners in educationaboveall are
about 25 years ago then youngish first lady and man of qatar brainstormed what does our country do in the future when the oil well runs out - he wanted to be the future of sports and she wanted to be the future of education in the desert
so he agreed that she could have 4 square miles desert around the school they had both gone to - and develop the future of education campus called education city
and she started talking american universities like georgetown and texas am to build colleges to research something they liked researching
after a while and chatting to other first ladies like jordans and turkeys she found that while education city in the desert may have attracted some brilliant postgraduate R&D silos it didnt reach down to girls and refugee learning, and also the greatest technologists in education didnt really want to live in the desert (until transportation etc was smooth- fortunately this would later fit with her husbands deadlines to build tourist infrastructure for the football world cup)
so she started the education laureates around sir fazle abed and after nominating 1 laureate in each continent asked beijing to host a wise@beijing 2 months after jack ma had tried to co-host an education commission at the un and 5 months before xi jinping was to host his new development banking for infrastructure and education across 65 national leaders belt roads
the chinese learnt from marco polo to be the worlds happiest explorers so having been invited to stage a wise in beijing they sent many of their most extraordinary educator practice people to qatar summit 2 weeks ago and all announced guterres would host a united learning summit of wise and global 2.0 funding of education the way technologists for jobs like jack ma or chinas other BAT can help youth celebrate- so microeducationsummit would leap beyond eg what clinton global 1.0 or microfinance summit could do by valuing big data small in ways never summited before
here are the chinese educators sent to wise that we were able to get business cards from and whom sir fazle abed wants the china-bangladesh girls education newsletter that amy and yuxuan started to do a special feature on
