Sugata Mishra @ TED: The School in the Cloud

Something every educator should see and think about very carefully - are we ready to get out of the way of our children's learning?

  1. What an amazing video and an equally amazing experiment. And it is all so simple. I am grappling with similar questions raised by my son who hates writing. “Why do we still write projects and not type on computers? Why don’t we do a powerpoint presentation instead?” And I feel like a real loser when the only answer I can offer him is ” You have to because that is what the school wants!” He rues the day when his fractured right hand mended. Because during the recuperation period he had a writer for the class tests and I must admit he did pretty well in them. Is your school planning to adopt what Mr. Mishra is talking about? And thank you for this post. I plan to share it on my facebook page.
