Investing in Our Future - Kids in the Tech Era - Movie Monday

I was invited by Heather Payne, a brilliant twenty-something making us all feel like underachievers, to check out an event hosted by Mozilla geared towards getting kids excited and involved in tech and coding. It’s a cool concept, and even cooler in execution, and got me thinking about how our education systems evolve.

Now, while I am a bit critical in this video of some investment choices made by governments all over the world in education for technology, this video is not so much about criticism as it is about starting a conversation about priorities. As time’s get tougher, and government’s have more work to do with less cash, it’s important that we all be part of the conversation about how our hard earned tax dollars are spent.

Some look at this as a right/wrong equation, but really, it’s only by putting everything on the table that we can have an honest conversation as citizens about what matters most to us. Thus, take today’s Movie Monday as a piece of that puzzle.

Enjoy!
