An adventure that will give him an inkling of the world Before Google and prepare him for a world Beyond Google. Before Google, when gaining knowledge was difficult and grit, perseverance and lot of intrinsic motivation was needed just to know; the Google era when knowledge is available on tap and what is important is an ability to connect the dots; and, Beyond Google – realising the timeless wisdom of passion with compassion, equanimity, harmony, well-being and joy.
We didn’t realise that our B.G. – ‘Before and Beyond Google’ thinking would prove so prescient.
In a recent column, Tom Friedman interviews Laszlo Bock, who is in-charge of global hiring at Google, to get Bock’s advice for job-seekers anywhere, not just at Google. Among a lot of good advice Bock makes a statement that we find disconcerting. He says, “…I told that student they are much better off being a B student in computer science than an A+ student in English because it signals a rigor in your thinking and a more challenging course load.”
If the vision Google has with its Glass is ‘a world full of computer scientists’ then we sure want to prepare K for a different future!
Help us create an enthralling learning adventure for K, which we hope will inspire many others his age. Some images from the storyboard are pasted below (final version will be more polished and in colour).
