My good friend Melinda Brown told me about this video by Sugata Mitra which is remarkably compelling to me. Its implication for educators and education are amazing. I will not dilute it's impact with a review or rhetorical rephrasing.
Allow me please to allude to my favorite quotes from the talk:
- "A teacher that can be replaced by a machine, should be."
- "If children have interest, then education happens." (Arthur C. Clarke)
- "the Arithmetic of Change, a question of attitude, not technology"
Please share this video with your colleagues and your students, and ask them how your school will change.
