A New Deal For Europe A New Deal For Europe Presentation Transcript

  • A new Deal for Europe Broadband for everybody for a better living (and education)
  • As Pdt F. Roosevelt does
    • With the Tennesse Valley Authority in 1933..
    • To bring electricity in the country
    • 10 billions US $/year until the 2d world war
    • To stop the 1929’ big economic crisis…
  • The situation today is quite different, but…
    • We have oil and fossil energies crisis in perspective…
    • The problems of « durable environment » (warming climate..)
    • And the Revolution 3.0…
    • So, Human Beings would have some probems in the next futur…
  • The 3d Revolution of Human Beings
    • After the Revolution 1.0 (Agriculture, 10.000 years ago, in Near Orient)
    • After the Revolution 2.0 (Industry, 300 years ago in Europe – UK is in Europe, isn’t it ?)
    • Human Beings are starting the Revolution 3.0
  • No name at the moment for this new Revolution based on :
    • … Nanotechnologies…
    • … Humanoïd Robot
    • … Renewable Energies
    • … Synthetic Biology
    • … .
  • Between Revolution 1.0 and 2.0 nothing happens
    • Perhaps some « frictional » problems between english, french and german people and other tribes on the Earth…
    • Nothing happens, except the « first Bill Gates » : Johannes Gutenberg (1456)…
    • Printing change the World, the spread of knowledge, the quantity of knowledge, the education of Human Beings…
  • And between the 2.0 and 3.0 Revolution
    • Internet would be the « modern printing »
    • And broadband Internet, based on fiber optic end to end, would be marvellous … for the different activities of Human Societies (commerce, entertainment, communication, health… )
    • AND EDUCATION – Why ?
  • Human Beings brain…
    • 100 billions of neurons… and each one has 1.000 connexions with others…
    • That’s a marvellous thing (thanks to God…), but…
  • But it’s not the « panacea ». Why ?
    • Because HB ’ brain doesn’t quickly understand complex problem, abstraction, …
    • We would need more neurons…
  • That the problem for education
    • So what we have to do ?
    • Very simple…
  • Build interactive 3D applications
    • Why ? Because if you interact yourself with/inside a process (real or virtual), you retain much more than if you’re listened some one with a piece of chalk on a blackboard…
    • THAT’S THE KEY for e-education …
  • For that we need 2 things…
    • Interactive 3D applications
    • And broadband for delivering that to universities, schools, homes (interactive 3D needs broadband – 100 megabits/s and more – (same thing for commerce, communication, health, ….)
    • Suggestion :
  • Building the 3d Millenium University
    • I suggest Europe would be « the melting pot » for that (we suppose english, french, german… resolve their traditional historical problems)…
  • A new Deal for Europe
    • As President Roosevelt does in 1933 in United States…
    • We do the same thing in Europe to build this University .. Bring fiber to every European (as in Japan..)
    • Create public/private partnerships to carry through interactive 3D applications
    • If not... Our european Futur is compromised… in the Revolution 3.0
  • Many projects outside…
    • MIT with opencourseware (87.000 on line courses)
    • CORE : China opencourseware with 44 chinese universities
    • Global Education Learning Community, a fondation of Scott McNelly…
    • So, what we do ?
  • Many thanks for your attention… and good luck in the Futur 3.0…
