Vriti Saraf � 3.0
A counter-offensive to banning AI in schools
John are there any blackout days you cant do in next 3 weeks?
vriti- if i understand you prefer people saying I have or want to develop this skill: can I help you? to people saying: what you are doing is important will you apply it to my agenda? - apologies in this email I cant live up to that
Johnwhatvriti is doing in 2023 is likely more important than anyone else in new york as a missing piece in jigsaws of whomever you do most important work with after 45 yearsof mediating stories that either become massively popular through artistic creativity or represent what powerful people sometime want their charitable legacy or real being to have played on life's stage Macbeth -- famous "sound and fury" speech ACT V, SCENE V To-morrow,...
to john - vriti's teams are also currently scaling even more stuff on bringing the future of the metaverse to education than jeanne

vritiI cant explain why or what John might be helping one of ny's most powerful ladies launch on feb 14 - other than its something to do with women around the world linking in expoenetially more community good than men - only john can tell you parts of that mix launching first
meanwhile 2 people john is trying to help at levels way beyond my status whose mission is a bit more public

now had about 20 hours of briefing of what she's doing and i made hong kong my first travel since covid; and since first working for unilever in indonesia 1982 my experience is 70% of humans who are asian have deeper solutions youth need to spend time and intel on on regarding maps of the first 5 sdgs - all need trust to cooperate around than many american cant even imagine-
in 2010s my 24 trips to asia included 16 to bangladesh where most people still dont have electricity grids but have doubly leaped with mobile and solar- why was the person sir fazle abed who since 1970 had most helped solve businesses a billion village women could build health around spending his last decade talking to every ambassador etc about 2 projects (each with at least 50 million new livelihoods) a new university designed to graduate the most cooperative women in the world of sdg solutions and pre-schools - either is a subject of interest vice chancellor vincent has promised john and me and others a debriefing now he bridged the 4 years of abed's death and covid having been headhunted from building shenzen-hk universities with the number 3 person at peking u; vincent grew up in a very poor taiwanese fishing family so if one person can translate the truths of conflicts youth need to sort out from japan to singapore and every chinese-english trading community in between it may be him
vincent and I have gone full circle since we met in simpler time spring 2019 at marriott times square - he helped launch global broadway with japans senior person in wall street mack whose passion is http://www.musicforsdgs.com - so john and friends are due a double update from vincent once he's moved his belongings back to los angeles
to john-vriti's teams are currently scaling even more stuff on bringing the future of the metaverse to education than jeannethough probably the top 5 things she is doing are each at urgent opportunity/threat crossroads compounded by crypto; she's also on a parallel path to what mit did 25+ years ago when the architects and civil engineers (and artistic interior design) renamed their faculty medialab! she knows the gaming community and something called sandbox that was an urban planning /design game in california circa 2010 is now what makes jeannes friend yat siu asia's number 1 designer of the metaverse http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=yat+siu+bloomberg+or+bi... at on time siu's main ny venture fund was in flatiron but not sure if still is;anyway unlike others he seems to have so far avoided crypto's tsunami due to the arrogance of ftx's 30 year old - and presumably the big banks that invested in him to fail just like subprime
John I dont know if you remember open space of harrison owen and of amy chen- developed as real global vilage town halls back in 1984 now practised in most natiosn and cultures, vriti's digital platform is truer to open space than any hackathon. at 80 something despite harrison being a neighbor of mine I am not quite sure where among his 10000 active apprentices to try make an intro- for some reason john the day you met harrison we never got to action debrief what help he was asking for
to vriti jeanne was in some ways lucky she was expecting to launch an nft 14 minths ago but waiting for apple's platform ; then she found apple wants to chare 30% of everything her platform does so she stopped being dependent on ceypto)- the disadvantage of that is she's doing far less public work that she hoped and far more private commercial stuff- but each will be visible -eg she is uniting all of a spanish islands ecotourism sites under one virtual reality creator so soon ecotourists wont be limited to postcards if wish you are here - they can hook their skilled peers into virtual reality experiences of best ecotoursim cooperations; meanwhile the island governor has told all hotels to join in or he will remove their star ratings ... or something along those lines - back in 2017 I met the governor of jeju south korea who was challenging his island to something 100 times bigger and randi's friends in vienna know a lawyer in hainan who is probably turning china's most southerly island into an even bigger a game (she asked me to send her a challenge if anyone has one)
to john-if i undesrtand correctly at least 2 things vriti owns (has most co-created during a very challenging time of covid) are
6000 spaces for teachers who want to change the world to unite the future of the profession around - some of these are grounded in challenges like how to help philidelphia education system with maths or tech their teenagers need even if the teachers can no longer teacher it without cooperation beyond any one school or any one supervisors district
vriti- if thats what mike peck is doing - i am sure john would like an intro (this also related to http://www.nexteienstein.org - for 20 year africa has been working on new ways of tecahing maths wizxards and thsi has become one of the most exciting presentation whenever science summits are hosted to twin un policy summits). again john is following this up - he knows the person whose company designed apple's siri apple mathematica siri - Google Search
apple mathematica siri - Google Search
a virtual reality conference hall or campus design which is able to design eg 10 day courses with faculty who might be best for students on a particular challenge to link in first
to vriti- john knows probably the best network for training african mathematicans to do maths that africa needs
ok i went on too long but hopefully you can see there are conversations that benefit fro \m real life as I dont know their ordee of play and in fact depending what diaries roll out I dint think we know
recursion 1 in case you want deeper system crossroads emerging from what is the 73rd year mainly dad but now I have update von neumanns survey what god can privileged peoples unute who get first chance to network with 100 times more tech per decade?
at the beginning of this week a 4 star general in DC has said expect us to declare war on china - (as if its not enough that europe 2020s with putin looks like europe 1920s )
god speed everyone - in the last thinktannk before covid i got harvads leading expert on what he still calls intellectual capotalism but is probably now last chnace to huamnise ai to say declaring war on chain was not the way - that was 2020 january that was...

i expect joseph is annoyed with me for open spacing this conversation though we could try seeing if he will talk to one of you two instead of me; johns other campus apart frim flatiron is various pieces of boston as he's an mit graduate
there's really only one bit of un i believe in after seeing it greenwashed from launch of millennium goals back in 2000; its taken 7 yeras for 9 educators reviewing 2015 sdgs to grow sdgaction-ed-tech https://www.un.org/techenvoy/content/ongoing-work people like jim kim jack ma melinda gatres were 3 of the founding 9 but all have disappeared from direct involvement - its now a small ny office and a huge geneva network - the office is next door to guterres at un hq - its now led by senior india civil servant amandeep gill- vriti I dont know if india development is one of your 6 movements - but it is connected to feb 14 launch john can share more with you

IF SCHOOLS were child centric they would make age relevant interventions:
if anyone is illiterate at age 6 it only takes 90 days to change that - best of all a literate kid can be main helper in 20 minute session - see sunita gandhi
finacial literacy would be practicsed from age 8 - see aflatoun ( works in 100 countries
from age 10 pre-teens would have access to pfysical and mental health studies designed peer to peer -see Lancet
no kid would leave primary school without knowing how open space meetings/teamwork is facilitated
teachers would be celebrated for clarifying which skills involve experiential learning not classroom examination - while there is some recognition that music and sports involve practice, its shocking that coding isnt valued this way ..
Do you have life-changing moment to share? - what was it and what did you think or do differently after it?
example until 9/11, i assumed that (good) futures are happening somewhere in the world and would be searched out so that all could communally replicate them; === 9/11 caused me to question whether global connectivity will give us time to find sustainable solutions for our kids- i became particulaly interested in places where good education leaps appeared but did not get app'd the world over - one example actually goes back to my favorite 1990s advances in schools that a small cliuster of new zealand schools pioneered - download it here https://oiipdf.com/download/the-learning-revolution
i welcome discussion of this book's parts at any time rsvp email@example.com if you have a solution every community that develops youth could be cooperational
in 1984our book with economist editors 2025report made the case for 40 year commitment to every child identifying own skils dashboard and maximising AI curation of this- we valued this as sustainability critical worldwide cooperation - we see no logic for changing this concern
== we live in an age where most up to half of knowhow of techforgood changes every 3 years - we needed mindsets for exploration not for being standard examined; a nation that makes its college students its largest debt class is likely to collapse economically socially environmentally if web3 is designed for celebrating sustainability cooperation; and if web3 is not designed for neough yout to linkin the first sustainability generation then we are all heading the way of the dodo
TECH - What is IT? and which exponential multipliers most impact human and natural futures?
AI >. silicon chip singularity (ie when one chip > one brain in pure analytical capacity) - science fictiion no moore
who programs the ai - the race to include lost voices eg girls- the world of statistics re=-examined like never before (eg previously mass statistics very weak at coding meaining from numbers)
Biotech >> Affective science (loveq and emotional intelligence remains human's unique edge over artificials for at least 10 more years!)
Some people say that Virtual or Augmented Reality has advanced at its best so far in last 12 months that there are hardly any qualified teachers only pioneering explorers- does this matter - well its VR which is your gateway to web3 - intead of just a mobile device you will like wear a visual sensor system; equally others argue that you shouldnt worry about how fast you put googles on - what you should want is to take back ownbership of what you spend time creating virually- look at the small print of the big platforms you probably dont own anything without them..maybe this is a generation issue bu interstingly the met-generation can now work on chnaging anything that old systems are destroying (eg climate) ...t
IOT which things will now have brains and be as mobile connected as you are
Crypto - can communities celebrate financiang their own most urgent sustainability cooperations? if they dont who wil?
Cyber >> Drone - opportunities and threats of public spaces- first in spaces like the arctic circle if we dont use drones we will get no warning before the big meltdown
-the mkist memorable western campus event i attended in 2010s was tufts colllaboratory summit convened mainly by arctic circle youth under 25;
one of the main debates how to help teachers in arctic circle schools empower their students to use virtual reality to visit other arctic circles schools communities; many of the changes and solutions are analogous; I am reminded by educators leading the compilation of virtual realty libraries of the DICE acronym - a reen might want to do something dangerous like climb everest, why not VR simulate that? there are impossible things a trainee doctor will never be able to travel inside a humans gut but that can be VR'd; there are catastropghic simulations - you would rid the world of bees just to test if donald is wrong about nature being more powerful than he is, you can simulate it; or the future of smart tourism may be curation of what a community is proudest of being visited for - this way ecotourism, cultural appreciation exchanges can be twinned to maximise celebration of each other- and by the way friends of the tourist can join in virtually- of corse this raises a metaverse question - that Hong Kong is leading the world on
being 100% public - good and bad hacs- note context matters - context 1 smart city context 2 isolated vilalge no moore context 3 make a huge land safe at borders
