Victorian school

Sugata Mitra takes us through the history of education, how we have become cogs in the Victorian bureaucratic system and how our children are more unique than these cogs. He explains why are children no longer need to multiply in their heads or write neatly but why they are inspired by the big questions that they can answer without us.

Learn how indian children who don’t speak english can learn about DNA replication without a teacher, what a Granny cloud is and how you can turn your classroom into a ‘SOLE’ (Self Organising Learning Environment).

We would be interested in your own experience. What happens when you ask children the big questions in life?
