The future of learning In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to the dematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning. - See more at: http://iatefl.britishcouncil.org/2014/sessions/2014-04-05/plenary-sugata-mitra?utm_source=09+April+2014&utm_campaign=ConstantContact+26+March&utm_medium=email#sthash.LfTv1D2R.dpuf
