Sugata Mitra - Leading Remarkable Learning - March 2017

I have long been a fan of Sugata and in many ways he has been a big influence on my teaching approaches and philosophy of teaching. I have watched and enjoyed his Ted talks numerous times and have experimented with the concepts of self organised learning environments on a number of occasions. 

Sugata Mitra is Professor of Educational Technology at the School of Education. He was given the TED Prize in 2013 in recognition of his work on 'building a School in the Cloud,' a creative online space where children from all over the world can gather to answer 'big questions’ He is also well known for his ‘Hole in the wall’ experiments.
