andrew dimock Posted about 1 year ago Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud Cristina, I can't explain all here but one tangent is that Sugata is thinking ahead. He sees that learning is intrinsic to humanity and system of education today is not efficient. Professional teachers are inappropriately allocated assets. go to 14:12 and listen. He makes his point clear. Times are changing. We no longer need an abundance of factory workers. Change the system of learning from threat to joy. Learning is more effective if it is positive not stressful. Our existance is transforming today. We are making computers faster and developing solar cells that convert more energy, education needs to catch up and follow the same curve. Activation of a childs inner desire makes the learning process faster and more effective. It is clear to me from watching many of these lectures that traditional education has to catch up with tech. Basic education can take place anywhere. Teachers can specialize. allow kids to think,dream and learn. It is truly amazing what develops! Think ahead, PhD's today are the High School Diplomas of tomorrow..
