Education in the Cloud

When my brother bought our first family computer, I was fascinated with it and diligently learned to master the keyboard. Back then, computers were chunky and had limited options. Now, a computer could be the key to level the playing field among the privileged and poor. Watch how a man installed a computer through a hole in the wall and effectively gave kids the single tool to transform their self-education.

This talk won the TED prize and Sugata Mitra was awarded $1 million to pursue his wish. His vision of education in the future was exactly how I have always wanted to be taught. Not only does it promote global understanding, it is powerful in that it plants a seed for self-efficacy. Knowledge should indeed start with a question.
