Sugata Mitra on The Future of Education

Call to action: Allow kids to learn by themselves.

Mitra recaps his research on Self Organizing Learning Environments (SOLEs). He proves that children given the right tools can learn without formal teachers. Learning facilitators using the Grandma Method improve self-learning. Language is not a barrier in facilitating learning. Using his method, we only need 1 billion dollars to create SOLEs for the entire planet.

Wow! And, he edited this big textbook on Multimedia Systems.
