Doug Tressler Posted over 1 year ago Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud This is more than inspiring it is revolutionary. We cannot continue to teach children to live in a world that doesn't exist, we must equip them for the future by empowering them to function in a social environment that is without walls. The purpose of the brick-and-mortar institution is not to educate the mind in content it is to education the body in social settings; those social settings have changed. We are I a global community that cannot be sustained by people whose brains have been conditioned to the containment of a box. We must facilitate education in a virtual environment that conditions the mind for growth without walls. I do take exception to the innuendo in this film that teachers are unnecessary; they are very necessary, they are the grandmothers. We must have the guide that can discern the truth and allow us to learn from the past.
