Self Organised Learning Environments - SOLE



A MUST WATCH VIDEO - one peaceful hour!
The Future Of Learning Sugata Mitra
Published on Jan 17, 2018
Since the 1990s, experiments with children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children, in groups, can form 'self organising systems' that results in emergent learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: Groups of children with access to the Internet can learn anything by themselves. The mechanism of this kind of learning seems similar to the appearance of spontaneous order, or 'emergent phenomena' in chaotic systems. 
From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning. 
Using the 2013 TED Prize, he has built seven 'Schools in the Cloud', where Self Organized Learning Environments (SOLEs) and a 'Granny Cloud' of mediators over the Internet, interact with unsupervised children. The results of this three-year study are not yet fully analysed but Sugata will present some of the preliminary findings. 
We begin to see some glimpses of what schools should be for and what curricular, pedagogic and assessment changes will be required in the future.
