Educational Technology Guy Eli Portnoy Debunks the Value of a Harvard MBA | Betabeat — News, gossip and intel from Silicon Alley 2.0. By Nitasha Tiku 7/14 2:31pm Share this: Venture capitalist Peter Thiel pushed the debate about whether a college education is worth the student debt past the tipping point–he’d rather pay smart kids $100,000-a-piece to build a start-up–but the argument has taken on a life of its own. Entrepreneurs have long romanticized the notion of a boot-strapped, self-taught success and held a healthy skepticism over whether a classroom can prepare you for the business world. But Eli Portnoy, a TechStars alum/Harvard MBA and CEO of ThinkNear, a location-based services start-up that helps merchants drive traffic to stores during down periods, takes an updated look at the current landscape. It’s no longer just a choice between going to college or venturing out on your own. If you know you want to start a company there is nothing more helpful than TechStars and I would strongly suggest going through the program ahead of an MBA. Sounds good in theory. by Taboolaby Taboola Sponsored ContentSponsored Content

Free Technology for Teachers A Puy-Saint-Vincent, l'institutrice est payée par les habitants Un village rural des Hautes-Alpes, dont la classe maternelle était promise à la fermeture en raison d'une baisse des effectifs, accueille lundi sa nouvelle institutrice recrutée et payée par ses soins, créant une situation inédite en France. "Il faut que la commune garde ses enfants dès le plus jeune âge, sinon c'est la mort annoncée du village", déclare à l'AFP Marcel Chaud, le maire sans étiquette de Puy-Saint-Vincent, une station de ski de 300 habitants qui emploie jusqu'à 500 saisonniers l'hiver. La mairie, opposée à la fermeture de la classe maternelle annoncée en mars dernier par l'inspection académique, a décidé d'embaucher pour cette rentrée une institutrice qu'elle paye sur ses deniers, via une association, pour un budget annuel d'environ 30.000 euros. Dix enfants, âgés de 2 ans et demi à 5 ans, sont inscrits dans cette école privée, hors contrat avec l'Etat, installée au sein de l'établissement communal qui accueille les 17 autres élèves de primaire.
