We already talked about Sugata Mitra - the winner of the 2013 TED Prize. His wish: Build a School in the Cloud, where children can explore and learn from one another. His experiments “Hole in the Wall” have shown that, in the absence of supervision or formal teaching, children can teach themselves and each other, if they’re motivated by curiosity and peer interest. Mitra, who's now a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University (UK), calls it "minimally invasive education."
“It took nature 100 million years to make the ape stand up and become Homo sapiens. It took us only 10,000 to make knowing obsolete.”
