Education has two faces in today’s world, according to a recent World Bank report. On the one hand there’s the traditional face, where learning takes place in the state-sponsored classroom. On the other are the private initiatives in which other partners take responsibility for education at all levels.

The Global Goals For Sustainable Development

In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.Our governments have a plan to save our planet…it’s our job to make sure they stick to it.The Global Goals are only going to work if we fight for them and you can’t fight for your rights if you don’t know what they are. We believe the Goals are only going to be completed if we can make them famous.

LESSON CREATED BY JOSE G. LEPERVANCHE USING VIDEO FROM TED for non-native English speakersYOUTUBE CHANNEL

MIT Media Lab grad student Joy Buolamwini was working with facial recognition software when she noticed a problem: the software didn’t recognize her face — because the people who coded the algorithm hadn’t taught it to identify a broad range of skin tones and facial structures. Now she’s on a mission to fight bias in machine learning. She spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet in Boston. Join #codedgaze. (Ref: TED.com)
