"The School in the Cloud"
Self Organized Learning Environments (SOLE Groups)
on My Education Room
What is the future of learning?
A few weeks ago we received an email with a link to (Newcastle) professor Sugata Mitra's inspiring TED talk detailing the need to rethink the manner by which we educate children in the 21st century. His dream? To build a school in the cloud (see YouTube video below).
Professor Mitra went on to win the $1 million dollar Ted Talks prize and is now conducting education research in India, England and other countries. We contacted his organization The School in the Cloud (www.theschoolinthecloud.org) and have offered to help.
Using My Education Room's online platform certified teachers can create free SOLE lessons for K-12 students from around the world.
