The self organized learning environment (SOLE) is a model to adapt school space to facilitate inquiry based learning. The idea is simple and powerful: “A teacher encourages their class to work as a community to answer questions using computers with internet access“.

If you haven't seen this, take 17 minutes Sugata Mitra: The child-driven education | Video on TED

TED Talks Education scientist Sugata Mitra  tackles one of the greatest problems of education -- the best teachers and schools don't exist where they're needed most. In a series of real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize how we think about teaching.

Sugata Mitra's "Hole in the Wall" experiments have shown that, in the absence of supervision or formal teaching, children can teach themselves and each other, if they're motivated by curiosity and peer interest.

5 Innovative Mind-Mapping Tools For Education | Edudemic

5 Innovative Mind-Mapping Tools For Education | Edudemic | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

What do you do when you have an elaborate project, assignment, or paper that needs to be quickly organized? Do you fire up Microsoft Word and whip up an outline? Do you pull out a pen and paper and start sketching?

What if you could have the best of both options with a free online tool? It’s called ‘mind mapping’ (“Mind Map” is a trademark of the Buzan Organization.) and it’s basically a fun and intuitive way to visually organize your thoughts. Thanks to a recent article, I received an influx of mind-mapping web tools that I wanted to pass along to the Edudemic audience. Enjoy!
