Sugata Mitra on the Future of Learning

Sugata Mitra on the Future of Learning | Education & more | Scoop.it

Mitra’s premise is that schools are still operating on a 19th century factory model designed to spit out workers with the same skills. He encourages teachers and parents to break free of that model and do a better job at sparking children’s curiosity and agency.

Essentials for inquiry learning to be effective.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, June 18, 1:46 AM

Number 1. Get them to ask their own question!  This is so important and quite a difficult thing to get students to do. They are so used to answering questions given by the teacher that when it comes to creating their own questions they don't know how. A really important starting point.

There is a huge push to embrace PBL...this article does a very nice job of defining how project and problem based learning is different.  What are you using in your class?

Marcia Powell's curator insight, May 21, 2013 2:26 PM

This is great, because it talks about the evolution of #pbl, and tells me how I can get better as a teacher.   This should be of particular interest to anyone trying to transform their classroom.

ratzelster's comment, May 31, 2013 7:46 AM
I sort of think it's an on-going kind of journey. It's hard to get there in one jump. I see it as more of a gradual and intentional shift.
