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 Knowledge is obsolete, the teacher is obsolete.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.

A Revolutionary Approach to Local Government
In 2005 retired executive Oliver Porter created a functional city government for Sandy Springs, Georgia, in less than a year. He had no budget, no formal authority, and to join him. Facing overwhelming odds, Porter pioneered a model in which city services are comprehensively contracted out to private firms.

Sandy Springs became one of the most successful cities of its size in the United States, with award-winning city services and public works but no debt or long-term liabilities.

In this book, Porter shows you how your local government can join the growing number of contract cities to get out of debt, adopt new technologies, and take control of your community’s future.
