Thanks for your rescheduled very edifying Stanford/SFUSD "partnership" talk - https://ed.stanford.edu/
events/csets-pondering- excellence-teaching-1 - last week. It was great to meet Norma as well. (Please give her my greetings).
In what ways could CC World University and School, of which I'm the founder and president, and Stanford, best partner?
I'm thinking in terms of WUaS hiring teachers and faculty and in all countries' main languages, with time, for free CC MIT OpenCourseWare- and Yale OYC-centric university and high school degrees. I'm also thinking in terms of World University and School seeking to become the online Stanford of the Internet, with, if possible, our law schools and medical schools emerging out of the Stanford law and medical schools themselves - for free-to-students online CC OCW law and medical degrees - EVENTUALLY in all ~200 countries' official (and main) languages. This would complement CC MIT OCW's ~2,300 courses in English and its CC OCW in 6 other languages (Chinese and Korean, Persian and Turkish, Portuguese and Spanish). In so doing, wiki World University and School seeks to become the Harvard / MIT / Stanford / Oxbridge of the internet for free CC OCW degrees in all ~200 countries' official languages, as well as wiki schools for open teaching and learning in all 7,097 living languages (in Ethnologue) / 7,943 entries in languages (in Glottolog).
How best might we also communicate further about World University and School with possibly SFUSD students matriculating this autumn for free CC MIT OpenCourseWare-centric online Bachelor degrees from the comfort of their homes, - and live and interactively as well in group video to begin?
Thank you again for your talk, Laura, and it was very nice to meet you in person. In seeking to become the Stanford of the Internet in California too, and from people's homes, and as wiki (editable web pages) too, World University also seeks to create education and learning anew, building on the excellence, and STEM thinking, of Stanford and MIT and greatest universities in all countries' languages - and with information technologies, such as an universal translator and a realistic virtual earth, as these continue to develop and grow rapidly and with excellence in the coming decades. Perhaps partnering re CSET - https://cset.stanford.edu/ - in these regards would be logical as well.
Could we possibly meet (or talk) please, perhaps with Stanford Professor Janet Carlson, to explore partnership opportunities further? World University and School seeks to become a major employer worldwide, hiring perhaps 1 million people, with 700,000 of them graduate/undergraduate students in all 8,000 languages, each a school/university (as well as an academic language market).
Thanks again for your excellent talk and far-reaching thinking, Laura!
(just finished writing and publishing a 350 page 8 1/2x11 inch actual-virtual ethnographic book, I'm glad to say :) - http://bit.ly/HarbinBook and https://twitter.com/HarbinBook - which will also inform the realistic virtual earth as field site, with more about all of this here in my blog - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.

My question in Laura Wentworth's recent Stanford Education talk begins at 104:15 -
"The Tree, in various versions, has been called one of America's most bizarre and controversial college mascots." ... re the 1960s & '70s ... See, too, this Stanford Tree article about the Yurok tribe here.
