What We Can Learn from Motown

Not too long ago, I took the opportunity to visit the Motown Museum in Detroit. In 1959, Berry Gordy founded Motown Records, which developed artists like the Temptations, Four Tops, Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and the Jackson 5. At first glance it seemed that Berry’s success was because he had a knack for identifying superstars but a deeper look reveals more. Motown’s success was actually built on an operating system which is similar to that of some of the most successful organizations today.

Edtech Doesn’t Have to Create a Digital Divide

Call them millennials, call them digital natives, call them zombies, but the cliche is that today’s kids can be identified by their hunched posture, their eyes locked on a screen and their tendency to communicate in emoji. However, this idea that schoolkids are perpetually plugged in isn’t exactly true—especially not among kids from poorer families.
