How to avoid getting sick in India

Jenny Connected

In today’s live ChangeMooc session with Antonio Vantaggiato [link] (which I will come to again in another post), I was sorry to hear that Stephen Downes, George Siemens and Dave Cormier all suffered from ‘Delhi Belly’ as a result of their trip to India. Avoiding getting sick in India. These strategies have worked for me over many visits to India. And I should end by saying that I absolutely love India.

The current situation in India is that the growth rate of services has overtaken both agriculture and industry and is now more than 50% of GDP. India therefore has a services-oriented economy.

The place of ‘the teacher’ in relation to open content

It was the startling fact that India (where more than half the population is under the age of 20) needs 37000 new universities within the next 10 years (as of today, 4 new universities a week) if it is going to meet the education demands of it’s growing population. Just how will ‘teaching’ be scaled up to meet the needs of tomorrow’s learners in India, China and the world? Change Mooc, Week 18: Richard DeMillo, Ashwin Ram, Preetha Ram, and Hua Ali.

Why is it called Open Space “Technology?”

At the conclusion of the several programs, Mahesh convened a press conference for the business reporters of India. This was rather a formal event, and in the way of such things in India, Mahesh’s introduction of myself seemed to go on forever. I get asked this question a lot. It makes me laugh because truthfully there is very little “technology” to an Open Space Technology meeting. You just need some paper and markers and some tape and away you go.
