Self-Organised Learning Environments (SOLEs) are models of learning in which students self-organise in groups and learn using a computer connected to the internet with minimal teacher support.

The idea of SOLEs is a social innovation that is inspiring educators (in schooling and also business contexts) everywhere, as demonstrated by Mitra’s award of the 2013 TED prize. However, when SOLEs are located in classrooms, a number of questions arise. Are SOLEs easily adapted for the classroom context?

Given that this blog is ostensibly about educational research, I thought it was time to ask whether such research is actually worthwhile. In particular, can educational research be scientific in nature?
EsdeGroot's insight:

"However, the benefits of having the evidence – of knowing something approaching the truth – these are worth having."
