Ces résultats sont-is confirmés ? ils sont affichés dans le Guardian, proviennent de l'OCDE - Pisa quand même...

Interesting, in other ways this could also be seen as framing learning as a constant performance of assessment. Where do you draw the line ?

A school in the cloud: Sugata Mitra accepted the TED Prize at TED2013

A school in the cloud: Sugata Mitra accepted the TED Prize at TED2013 | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Sugata Mitra is named the TED Prize winner at TED2013. He shares his wish—for a school in the cloud that encourages self-learning.

 

Mitra has a history of research to back up this wish. In 1999, he began what he calls his “hole in the wall” experiment. He carved a hole in a wall in a Delhi slum — about three feet high — and placed a computer in it. Kids had gathered around within a matter of hours and asked Mitra questions about what this thing was. He responded “I don’t know,” and walked away.

 

===> Soon the kids were surfing the internet — and teaching each other how to do it more effectively. <===

 

Mitra repeated the experiment 300 miles away, where computers even less familiar. He installed a mysterious computer on the side of a road. A few months later, he returned and found kids playing games on it.

 

Remembers Mitra, “They said, ‘We want a faster processor and a better mouse.’”

Another thing these kids said that was music to his ears:

 

“You’ve given us a machine that works only in English, so we had to teach ourselves English.”

 

Mitra says, “It was the first time I heard the words ===> ‘teach ourselves’
