Re: The STEM of EVIL
I am wondering why STEM is associated to "Evil." The STEM of saints may be an appropriate title for educator or students. Title may be saints-centered STEM.

Re: The Difference of location
>>  at least, a good basic education, many of them can't just even read and write in their language so reading in english, french, german or spanish can be considered just science fiction

Great point - with highly poorly motivated teachers that are not paid for months, you can throw all the technologies you want, nothing will happen. Technology does not make a poor teacher better. Technology only enhances and accelerates efforts. You can be a bad writer, having a computer will not change that until you improve in your skill.

Re: Don't rely on the net.
The only constant is that technology will continue to add value to human productivity and improve welfare. It is also true that it makes everyone good. However, when it comes to the money matters, that may not be obvious. You can have a job of $30k because the old one of $50k was gone because of technology. Yet, now, you do not need $1k to own a cellphone as was before. So, technology has reduced some of your costs. Too bad, this is not linear in all your budgets as you rent may not be affected. It is complicated but in human history, tech has aways be a positive.

Re: Don't rely on the net.
Great technology produces great wealth in the most case, causing people on the earth might see more gap between rich and poor because technology might require more financial assets.

I may not understand the point. If you mean that even though technology improves everyone, the investor has an upper hand that the mere consumer I agree. But if the point is that technology narrows wealth gap, I may have a problem with that.

Re: The Difference of location
>> In many countries of Europe, education is free, but it is not well maintained (most colleges in Europe don't come within the first 500 colleges of the world) since there is no real funding.

My problem with Europe is if I am living there, there may not be a lot of incentives to even worry THAT MUCH. You get free education, free health insurance and that means your kids do not task you that much. You can always get them food and shelter. Life is good. Compared to US where you are on your own, you need to be creative.

Re: Don't rely on the net.
>> Think through your hypothesis and develop problem solving process flow even in the brainstorming session 

Great insight only if the person understands the problem very well. The challenge most times is that we do not understand the problem and all hypotheses will be off from that point.  Today, it is still a mystery why people can be poor in America and homeless despite the wealth and government services. How can someone be homeless when walking to a relevant government  office, the person can get a home! Yet, some remain homeless. The same applies in technology. Many things are simply complex to fix.

That explains when the great minds solve them, they create great wealth.

Re: Internet as a force
>> Online Education supported by internet might be used in the poor country. Then, they could access all resources remotely as well as virtual engineering and science lab.

 

That is exactly how World Bank works and thinks. Replicate what has worked in developed nations into developing ones. But someone who has lived in a poor country will know that only the very rich can afford watching videos in the poor countries. So you may have the website but that does not mean you can get students to afford to pay for broadband to watch the courses. But of course you can subsidize Internet access. That will be help then.

Re: The Difference of location
Well said, it all depends on what the requirements are. All we have to do is to cater the requirement.

Re: The Difference of location
@goafrit2: What a country with a lot of poor, illiterated population needs are properly maintained and free schools and colleges. I know most of the capitalist countries charge a ton of money as tuition fees but that should not be the case. In many countries of Europe, education is free, but it is not well maintained (most colleges in Europe don’t come within the first 500 colleges of the world) since there is no real funding. Also, if a country has problems like poverty, civil war, drug trafficking etc then education and free colleges can’t help the folks in the country. You won’t see a hungry child wanting to read a book.
