Varied thrush: Bill Gates and NYT's Tom Friedman on education (video), "Seek out private instruction" in Marsalis's and Ma's 'Guidelines for Practicing a Musical Instrument,' WUaS Music School and Instruction?, 'International Baccalaureate Diploma and Degree Program' at WUaS with Friends?
Bill Gates and NYT's Tom Friedman on education (video) ...
Bill mentions here a 5 to 1 ratio as beneficial in teaching,
and World University and School plans to hire graduate students
(matriculated at these great universities, for example -
to teach using the Conference Method -
Here Wynton Marsalis and Yo yo Ma's first suggestion is to "Seek out private instruction" -
in their 'Guidelines for Practicing a Musical Instrument' ...
World University and School's Music School
(all instruments in all 3000-8000 languages as wiki pages)
is relevant here -
How to bring the benefits of private instruction to free Bachelor, Ph.D., Law and M.D. degrees
via MIT OCW at WUaS
on the internet
via the conference method?
Dear San Francisco Friends' Meeting,
Here are the beginnings of World University and School's
'International Baccalaureate Diploma and Degree Program' -
with part of this I.B. Programme planned to be
MIT-OpenCourseWare High School-centric (Creative Commons' licensed),
online (e.g. in virtual worlds and Google Hangouts - to increase access),
focusing on these United Nations' languages only -
Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), English, French, Russian, Spanish ..., so not only in English)
and integrated with the MIT-OCW-centric World University,
but part of which could also be on-the-ground at a developing SF Friends' high school.
