Goonan to speak at Global Competitiveness Forum

I will be heading to Riyadh this January as one of five members of SIGMA, an SF thinktank, to participate in the 2012 Global Competitiveness Forum. 

I was invited to participate in September, and arrangements are now complete. 

President Bill Clinton and Bill Gates have been recent keynote speakers at the Forum, which includes an international array of CEOs, educators, entrepreneurs, and artists. 

My part of the presentation will include speaking about the possibility of inexpensive, nanotech-produced preschools.  These preschools will be autotelic learning environments that will enable preschool children, who are at the peak of their ability to absorb language, mathematics, and spatial concepts, to become literate and contributing members of our international community. 

I introduced this idea in a talk I gave to the JSSAP in Crystal City a few years ago, and used it fictionally in THIS SHARED DREAM. 

I’m looking forward to this opportunity to put this idea in front of those who have the ability to make this vision real.
