Sugata Mitra's new experiments in self-teaching

Even if you have seen Sugata Mitra's previous presentations on his 'Hole-in-the-wall' experiments, this one is definitely worth revisiting as it offers some his new findings as well based on research he has done all over the world, and more recently in Newcastle.

This talk is a must watch for all those who dare make decisions about education systems. The whole thing is about the future generation. Right? So we should care about it. Well, I'll let you watch, enjoy and allow your imagination go further.

At the end ask yourself: "What if...?"




Can you envisage what education would look like in your school if you followed Sugata's model? I'd be happy if you shared it with us.

I have written a closley related post on this here, called "Our children transforming education in action".

  2. Glad you liked it Brad. I've been following Sugata's research for over a year, and his findings are great. Educators should really re-think their roles, I believe - including myself :-)
