"My wish is to help design the future of learning by supporting children all over the world to tap into their innate sense of wonder and work together. Help me build the School in the Cloud, a learning lab in India, where children can embark on intellectual adventures by engaging and connecting with information and mentoring online. I also invite you, wherever you are, to create your own miniature child-driven learning environments and share your discoveries".
"We need to look at learning as the product of education self organization. If we allow the educational process to self organize, then learning emerges. It is not about making learning happen, it is about letting it happen."Sugata Mitra is Professor of Educational Technology at the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences at Newcastle University, England. He tackles one of the greatest problems of education -- the best teachers and schools don't exist where they're needed most. In a series of real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize how we think about teaching. He is the winner of the 2013 TED Prize. His wish: Build a School in the Cloud, where children can explore and learn from one another. This a GREAT and ENTERTAINING talk, please take the time to watch.
