"This fall, the entire British school system will embrace computer science.

 

The UK is the first G8 country to include computer science education in its national curriculum, and the move could serve as a test case for so many other nations across the globe, including the United States. As computing comes to dominate our world, programming skills are more valuable than ever, but even the U.S.–the center of the technology universe–is still struggling to bring coding into the classroom. Part of the problem is that, before students learn how to code, their teachers must learn too. Pulling all that off is a massive endeavor."

Bill Huston's insight:

The UK is really leading  the way in this vital educational endeavor. I think as we move forward with technology and education there has to be a merging of the two into strong elearning program that integrate technology into the classroom.

It's all a very interesting and necessary development, but again, it's all about operational skills. What about social and critical skills? I get visions from David Egger's 'Circle', with youngsters surrounded by screens instead of friends and living teachers. "As computing comes to dominate our world...", sounds like spreading panic and fear. Who's in control? Can we still see technology in perspective? As much as I;'m charmed by (science)fiction, some fictions should not become reality...

Do You Ever Think About Customer Relationships? Think about how many times you yourself have received bad customer service, how did you feel? That is the same feeling your own customers feel if you are not focusing and nurturing your customer relationships whenever and wherever you can.

Bill Huston's insight:

This is a great post and spot-on in its analyze of the value of nurturing customer relationships. I am a huge fan of implementing inbound marketing strategies for the pre-launch period of crowdfunding to convert visitors to lead and nurturing then until the campaign launch.

The rise of crowdfunding: 10 things to know

The rise of crowdfunding: 10 things to know | Crowdfunding | Scoop.it
Crowdfunding platforms are changing the way we finance projects and services, but the laws surrounding them are still ambiguous. Here are 10 facts to get you up to speed.

Crowdfunding is a tool that allows anyone -- be it startup founders, musicians, artists, students, children, or even someone in a developing country who lacks basic electricity -- to attract a pool of people via the internet to invest in their business idea. A funding target is established, and rewards to backers are offered.This new type of startup business model has the opportunity to disrupt industries and change the way we determine success and let the best ideas flourish, rather than the best access to capital. It's exciting, because the venture capital model that powers Silicon Valley and the global startup scene is inherently biased based on geography and connections. According to the Small Business Administration, about 600,000 new businesses are started in the US every year. The number of startups funded by VCs? 300. That means 99.95% of entrepreneurs won't get funded.To affect real change, we have to understand the basics: what defines crowdfunding, how it works best, and how the current laws shape what's possible. We also need to look at the ways the law is changing and what it means for the future of crowdfunding.Here is a list of the 10 most important things to know about this important new buzzword.
