Can we implement cost-effective analogue solutions to education in Rural India.
I live in Hyderabad, India. My country faces a tremendous problem with poverty and education. India's statistics are bad: a third of the world's poorest, and the highest in illiteracy. These numbers keep changing, but it is still bad.
Sugata Mitra proposed a school in the cloud, strongly supporting self-learning through emotional encouragement as a requirement for educational growth. Even so, the cloud is expensive. A population that cannot afford food or education can only dream at the moment.
Can the existing educational system be improved using analogue solutions, until an infrastructure that can incorporate digital technology is put in place?
