Witness the launch of an acclaimed new book, Disruptive Literacy: A Roadmap for Urgent Global Action that shines a light on how to emerge from a post-pandemic educational crisis

A new book on solutions to the global literacy crisis, titled Disruptive Literacy: A Roadmap for Urgent Global Action was launched on 11 July during a two-day summit in Delhi focusing on how to make India literate in months, not years. The conference featured such high-profile guests as Rajnath Singh, the Hon. Defence Minister of India, who used a video link to exhort the group to work together for universal literacy. Dr Abdullah Rashid, the Hon. Minister of State for Education, the Republic of Maldives, was the chief guest, unveiling the partnership between DEVI Sansthan and the government of Maldives to accelerate foundational literacy and numeracy at the nationwide level, in all its public and private schools.
Here are the glimpses from the book launch at the Synergy Summit on 11th July at India International Centre, New Delhi 
The book highlights the scale of the global educational crisis: as per UNICEF, over 70% of 10-year-olds lack foundational literacy and numeracy skills. The book strikes an optimistic tone, though, arguing that major breakthroughs are possible through a mass movement which involves all of society, including corporations, schools & colleges, NGOs, media and ordinary individuals. It is high time to replicate the experience of Ernakulam, which used a literacy movement to become the first Indian district to attain universal literacy, at the nationwide level to reap immediate gains and become a global example.
Watch Hon'ble Defence Minister, Shri Rajnath Singh hailing the book through a video message
Disruptive Literacy provides a roadmap for how to reach universal literacy, taking lessons and case studies from successful mass movements around the world. The government must play a crucial leadership role to conduct the campaign in a mission mode. The book argues that a paradigm shift is needed as the old teacher-centred rote-learning based education system has failed, leaving tens of millions of children and adults behind even before the Covid crisis. The book advocates the groundbreaking Accelerating Literacy for All program, which uses peer learning and the power of questions to unlock rapid literacy gains for both children and adults.
Check Out The Book on Amazon

Disruptive Literacy has been hailed by politicians, international academics, literacy experts and educational changemakers alike, with figures as diverse as Yogi Adityanath, Ernesto Schiefelbein (a leading Latin American educationist), Vicky Colbert (former Vice-minister of education, Columbia) and Fred Mednick (founder, Teachers Without Borders) offering endorsements. Anil Swarup, former Secretary of Education, has described it as a ‘must read for policymakers and all those involved in the struggle against illiteracy’. Disruptive Literacy is published by Bloomsbury and available as a paperback or ebook in bookstores and online.

 For followers of  peer networks gravitated by Von Neumann's Intel that 100 times more tech per decade 2035 back for 1935 would either end in sustainability for all or none of human species (systems/chaos maths just doesn't spiral to some middle ground by mathematical definition) its joyful that AI for good is the centrepiece of the 9 interlocking ways forward Engineer Guterres has designed into digital roadmapping UN2.0 the brand that needs to lead the world's collaborative and effectiveness rankings

Fuller library of how UN evolved from SDGs to UN2.0 digital roadmapping since 2015 is here

UN2.0 is not just a benchmark for UN but all govtech and open society

AI is multiplying out of at least 50 practice services of the UN such as the FAO's food or the WHO's health but its deepest exponentials are multiplying out of Geneva ITU (back in 1865 the world's most collaborative brand as nobody wanted 2 telegraph standards or telecoms or satellite telecoms or ...) and 3 new headquarters focused teams in ny all closely clustered around Guterres - tech envoy, deep data's global pulse, OC - lot longer tour at our world record jobs briefing on Guterres- BELOW ARE glimpses of aIforgood tours 24/7/365 massively openly online cooperated out of Geneva  with extra commentary from wikipedia

AI for Good is a year round digital platform of the United Nations, where AI innovators and problem owners learn, discuss and connect to identify practical AI solutions to advance the UN SDGs. The impetus for organizing global summits that are action oriented, came from existing discourse in artificial intelligence (AI) research being dominated by research streams such as the Netflix Prize (improve the movie recommendation algorithm).[1] AI for Good aims to bring forward Artificial Intelligence research topics that contribute towards more global problems,[2][3] in particular through the Sustainable Development Goals. AI for Good came out of the AI for Good Global Summit 2020 which had been moved online in 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. AI for Good is organized by the Standardization Sector of ITU (ITU-T). Since moving online, AI for Good developed into three main programme streams: Learn, Build, and Connect. AI for Good also helps organize ITU's Global Standards Symposium.. In 2022 this as moved the "Neural Network" platform.[4] Speakers include:[5]

Global Summit 2019[edit]

The third AI for Good Global Summit took place from 28 May to 31 May, and gave rise to the ITU Focus Group on Artificial Intelligence for Autonomous and Assisted Driving with several workshops and VIP events having taken place on May 27.[6] Some of the speakers included:

The second AI for Good Global Summit took place from 15 to 17 May 2018 at the ITU headquarters in GenevaSwitzerland and generated 35 AI project proposals[7] including the ITU-WHO Focus Group on Artificial Intelligence for Health with the World Health Organization.[8][9][10] Speakers included:[11]

The ITU also relaunched its Journal ICT Discoveries during the 2018 Global Summit, with the first edition being a special on Artificial Intelligence.[12]

Global Summit 2017[edit]

Fei-Fei Li speaking at AI for Good 2017

The first AI for Good Global summit took place from 7 to 9 June 2017. Speakers at the event included:[13] [14]

One of the outcomes of the 2017 Global Summit was the creation of an ITU-T Focus Group on Machine Learning for 5G.

Related applications[edit]

Several similar terms have been used to describe related applications of AI to global issues. These include "AI for Earth", referring specifically to environmental applications;[15][16] "Humanitarian AI", referring to applications for humanitarian ends;[17][18] and "AI for Healthcare".[19]

missing curricula electricity 1.0 and 2.0

 main questions this curriculum seeks to raise & make transpoarent:

to empower or to power over people

which nations succeeded in empowering people with electricty (1.0)

will all humans succeed in empowering people with AI (electricity 2.0)

advanced question - how does electricity 1.0 & 2.0 conne t with von neumanns number 1 question for journalists from 1945 what to do with 100 times more tech every decade

I had always thought that what made usa the most successful nation ever seen (during its second century, and potentially beyond) was continental scaling connecting electricity for everyone- this article corrects that assumption ; it explains the heroic efforts of roosevelt as one of america's few leaders of electricty for all the people https://americanhistory.si.edu/blog/rural-electrification

To this day this article is political dynamite - if you are not aware ofwho/how america got electricity you will believe all sorts of fake stories about america being supoerior on human rights and other countries unfair competition

countries that share electricity with all leap ahead; historically a huge problem has been scaling electricity across a narrow island or a city is easily afforded; doing this on a continental scale wasnt done anywhere until turn of millennium china

however even if a whole nation has access to electricity its not obvious where eg media is used to power over or empower everyone

when technologists call artificial intelligence the new electricity we should hope they mean not only access for all but empowering win-win games among all - see www.sdgmetaverseprize.org - where all the last challenges of minimum equality of all human beings have become our species' youth's last chance to celebrate.
