Technology they say has come to stay for good and it's only just getting started. We believe strongly that sooner rather than later, in our highly competitive global knowledge economy, the ability to code would set apart those that would be world leaders in almost all career paths. This presentation summarizes what we mean.

  8. 8. What is Technology? Paul Zane Pilzer defines technology as a better method of doing something you already do more efficiently.  We tend to think of technology as a new computer, a new semiconductor, something we don't understand.  
  9. 9. What is Technology? If you drive to work and it takes you 30 minutes, and there's a better way of getting there in 25 minutes, that's better technology. In the twentieth and the current century, the personal computer and the Internet have been the greatest drivers to progress and economy - Paul Zane Pilzer
  10. 10. The Computer “The Computer is the only product since the beginning of time that the maker or designer cannot determine or limit what it can be used for.” Dr. Tunde ADEGBOLA
  11. 11. The Future of the Computer & The Internet In the coming century, being able to command a world that will be thoroughly computerized will set apart those who can live successfully in the future from those who will be utterly left behind.“ Yishan Wong
  12. 12. Some Facts "Even with the *105million penetration of mobile phones with *less than 10% Smartphone and even less than 1% of our population can utilize these technologies, neither do we have local apps relevant and beneficial to this population " *National Bureau of Statistics
  13. 13. No.2The Future ofNo 2.
  14. 14. Why? "The recession of 2008 wiped out the credit and asset bubbles that had been fueling over- consumption and overproduction around the world". Ken Robinson
  15. 15. Why? Among the worst affected are young people. As I write this, global levels of unemployment among young people, aged from 15 to 24, are the highest on record.  Ken Robinson
  16. 16. Unemployment “Unemployment, while it is painful for the workers who are temporarily displaced, is a necessary and positive sign that the economy is growing". Paul Zane Pilzer
  17. 17. Consider this... About ten years ago there were no social networks. Ten years before that we didn't have the Web.
  18. 18. Consider this... If you work in the web programming, online marketing, or mobile phone industries… … your job did not exist twenty years ago.
  19. 19. Consider this... Who knows what jobs will exist twenty years from now? The people out of work today will soon find jobs again. But the work won't be the same.  
  20. 20. No.3 The Future of
  21. 21. Language & Literacy: The last 6 inches of the divide “Over the past few years, the Internet has rapidly become part of the daily lives of most people in the first world. This trend in easy access to unlimited information resources for first world users mirrors the growing 'central- peripheral divide' in the developing world”: Andie Miller
  22. 22. The Truth is... "The future's already happened, it's just unequally distributed."  a quote by science fiction writer William Gibson.
  23. 23. The Truth is... “The Computer needs to speak our language and vice versa. Until technology is applicable in our local language and appropriate applications that allow our huge population to benefit from it we would continue to look at technology as foreign and reserved for a selected few”. Dr Adegbola
  24. 24. No 4.
  25. 25. Data "Errors using inadequate data are much less than those using no data at all.” Charles Babbage

  26. 26. Making Sense of Data and Information At the heart of any management system you need good decisions and good information. In his book on Leadership, Rudy Guiliani, ex-mayor of New
 York tells how timely access to accurate information helped improve decision making in New York City’s fight against crime.  Elearn
  27. 27. Making Sense of Data and Information New media (particularly electronic media) have made it possible to communicate information faster and more directly and through many more channels. From e-mail to pagers and mobile phones, PDA’s, wikis and Intranets, the options to present information through different channels and formats is now immense.  Elearn
  28. 28. Making Sense of Data and Information Ultimately the tremendous amount of information that is generated is only useful if it can be applied to create knowledge within the organization. Building and managing knowledge is one of the greatest challenges that faces organization in the twenty first Century.  Elearn
  29. 29. World Wide Web The biggest source of secondary data is now the World Wide Web and you need to be able to search it.
  30. 30. The No. 5 No 5. The Future of Education
  31. 31. What is missing? “Our schools haven’t changed; the world has. And so our schools are failing”. Tony Wagner
  32. 32. Think about it “Children, young children, starting elementary school this year will be retiring 'round about 2070, if they ever do retire. Think about that. 2070. Nobody has the faintest idea what the world will look like in 2015, or 2020, let alone 2070". Sir Ken Robinson
  33. 33. What is missing? In today‘s highly competitive global knowledge economy, all students need new skills for college, careers, and citizenship. The failure to give all students these new skills leaves today‘s youth and our country at an alarming competitive disadvantage.
  34. 34. What is missing? “The greatest challenge is creativity in Africa which comes out of an incomplete education.
  35. 35. We are “Certified but not Educated” We are “Certified but not Educated” It is the attitude of chasing after certificates and not an education that has become the bane of our society. The problem in the society today is that skill is yet to be developed in people.  We are yet to come to a place where we truly use our education to create wealth”. Francis Madojemu
  36. 36. Where Do We Go From Here?
  37. 37. Now that we know the 5 Reasons........... What can we do about it?
  38. 38. Skate to where the puck is going to be Make sure your company is not simply chasing where other companies in your industry have been. The true ability of a successful company is to skate to where the industry is going to be. Jeffrey Monaghan
  39. 39. The Seven Survival Skills for Careers, College, and Citizenship
  40. 40. The Seven Survival Skills for Careers, College, and Citizenship 1. Critical Thinking and Problem- Solving 2. Collaboration Across Networks and Leading by Influence 3. Agility and Adaptability
  41. 41. The Seven Survival Skills for Careers, College, and Citizenship 4. Initiative and Entrepreneurialism 5. Effective Oral and Written Communication 6. Accessing and Analyzing Information 7. Curiosity and Imagination
  42. 42. Computer Programming The program that best covers these survival skills is Computer Programming
  43. 43. What Is Coding? The word coding is a slang term for computer programming, used because programming basically means writing source code. Emma Mulqueeny
  44. 44. What Is Coding? These actions are understood by the computer in what is known as binary code, that lovely series of ones and zeros loved by Hollywood futuristic films Emma Mulqueeny
  45. 45. Critical “We consider it critical that students be able to read and write and understand math, biology, chemistry and physics. To be a well-educated citizen in today’s computing-intensive world, students must have a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of computing as well.“ Chris Stephenson
  46. 46. Critical “Whether our children want to become farmers, doctors, teachers, or entrepreneurs, it’ll be easier for them to achieve their dreams in the digital age if they have some background in computer science. We need our children to learn 21st century skills for a 21st century world, and coding teaches them the creativity and problem-solving skills that are necessary for success.“ John Thune
  47. 47. Our Give every child in our community the chance to learn to code. It is our aim to equip the next generation with this essential skill to learn.
  48. 48. Consider This “I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think.” Steve Jobs
  49. 49. How? 1. We believe and think every individual, parent, kids; youth should be encouraged to start to learn to Code no matter what they want to do or are already doing in life. This will teach them to think and solve problems.
  50. 50. How? 2.Campaign for, encourage and assist schools and parents to introduce coding and computer programing into their curriculum.
  51. 51. How? 3. To provide a melting point for leading hardware and software providers and developers as well programers and programing firms to meet and work together  and to  come up with relevant applications for our local community and language
  52. 52. Why Code? “Here we are, 2013, we ALL depend on technology to communicate, to bank, and none of us know how to read and write code. It's important for these kids, right now, starting at 8 years old, to read and write code will.i.am
  53. 53. Why Code? Kids spend an increasing portion of their lives interacting with and through screens about which they know little or nothing.
  54. 54. Why Code? Introducing kids to code reveals to them how computers are really “anything” machines, capable of doing pretty much anything we program into them.
  55. 55. Strategic Partnership In strategic partnership with leading hardware and software providers and developers as well as programming firms we would be using simple coding curriculums from code.org, code academy.com and scratch.mit.edu just to mention a few to develop appropriate and relevant courses and programs
  56. 56. Everyone Can Learn To Code Children, Youths, Educators and Parents
