Embedded below is a very thought provoking video from a TED talk given by Dr. Sugata Mitra detailing some of the details of his recent work.
A few discussion questions to get you started:
1. It is really the presence of the web and universal access to information that makes this type of learning possible. How have you seen this type of learning or these strategies impact the world of education? Or have they?
2. Dr. Mitra has very persuasive words regarding the power of social learning. How true do you find this to be and in what way does it challenge some traditional pedagogies in American education?
