I wanted to share this TED talk, by Sugata Mitra, an Indian educational scientist. He focuses on the problem that the best teachers and schools don’t exist where they’re needed most. In the video, Mitra discusses a series of experiments he conducted across the globe, where he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and computers. Aptly called the Hole-in-the-Wall project, Mitra discusses the results he saw and how his findings could revolutionize how we think about teaching.
