Linda Alexander's insight:
There are lessons gleaned from Mitra's TED Talk this particular critique (see below) seems to ignore. Yes, it's silly to believe we can educate the masses in slums across India simply by placing a computer in a hole in a wall here and there. On the contrary, Mitra's experiment speaks to the ability of children to learn a second language, science curriculum, etc. on their own given internal, self-motivation, to navigate technology and work well in small groups. I feel some of the lessons from his experiment may be applied to pedagogy elsewhere--and that's a good thing. Here's a sample of the critique:
"It would be nice to just ignore Mitra’s cukooland in the cloud view of history, but his idea of, for instance, a self-organising learning environment (SOLE) where children educate themselves online with as little intervention from the teacher as possible gets all its persuasive force from the perception that we are only a few steps away from a perpetually peaceful self-organising society – a society in which all the children of the slums will be equal participants once they figure out how to code and once they save up enough money for a laptop."
