The Future of Learning
Sugata Mitra
A renowned pedagogue, expounds the new trends regarding the educational system that will forever alter the way we teach children. He starts by criticizing the old way of teaching that has its roots in the Enlightenment and western imperial expansion. This old method is constantly becoming more obsolete with the advent of the internet and explosion of information. The new paradigms of education stem from self-learners and their pursuit to solving problems. Knowledge is obsolete, the teacher is obsolete.

Sugata is famously known for his “Hole in the Wall” experiment that proves that Self-Organized Learning Enviroments (SOLE) develops learners for the new century. He ends his talk by disclosing the challenge of assessment and how it can be fixed.
