In today’s Guardian.co.uk Sugata Mitra suggests … give them a laptop and a group of pupils will teach themselves.
He goes on to say: … we call it a Self-organised learning environment (Sole). It just means a “cybercafe” environment for children – light, comfortable, safe and inexpensive. Children work in self-organised groups of four or five. They have the freedom to work as they please, or not to work, if they so please. Order is maintained by the children themselves.
As has often been said of our education system … too much teaching and not enough learning.
So how do you stand on this one?
