The Future of Learning

Starts: Wednesday, 11 January 2017

Presented by Professor Sugata Mitra, Professor of Educational Technology, Newcastle University

Venue: EDEN 036 (Powys)

In this inspirational session, TED talks prize winner Sugata Mitra will share insights from his experiments with technology in diverse settings. 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 results findings suggest a strange new future for learning.

Thirteen years of experiments in children’s education takes us through 12 a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own and can learn to read. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the Internet can learn by themselves, through ‘Schools in the Cloud’.
