As you’ve no doubt experienced, spending five or six hours in a classroom, listening to a teacher give a lecture, can be extremely tedious. This is especially true when you’re only given a blackboard and a set of textbooks to look at throughout the lesson. But guess what, it’s the 21st century! Which, as you well know, has quickly become the digital era. Technology is now allowing modern learners to study with the help of a wide range of online learning tools, and it's time we put them to use.

A typology of openness

“I was recently asked to talk about the idea of “open”, and I realized the term is used in at least eight different ways. The distinct interpretations are all important in different but interlocking ways. Getting them confused leads to a lot of misunderstanding, so it’s good to review them all.

The world’s first School in the Cloud opens in the UK | TED Blog

The world’s first School in the Cloud opens in the UK | TED Blog | Open Scholarship | Scoop.it

By Sarah Schoengold

Sugata Mitra has opened the doors of the world’s first School in the Cloud.

Located inside George Stephenson High School in Killingworth, England, this one-room learning lab is a space where students can embark on their own learning adventures, exploring whatever questions most intrigue them. Students even designed the interior of the space — which has colorful beanbags scattered throughout and (very appropriately) fluffy clouds painted on the walls.
