The New Era of Learning
The direction in which learning is going: personalized, self-directed, grounded in the real world, and blurring the lines between age groups, teachers/students, formal/informal, etc. It taps into people's instincts and desires for play, creativity and meaning.

Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud | Video on TED.com

Onstage at TED2013, Sugata Mitra makes his bold TED Prize wish: Help me design the School in the Cloud, a learning lab in India, where children can explore and learn from each other -- using resources and mentoring from the cloud.
Luba Vangelova's insight:

Mitra discusses his remarkable experiments with illiterate children in India, and why he concluded that the only elements essential for learning are: peer-to-peer interaction, access to information, and compelling questions. He envisions "minimally invasive education" environments around the world that will benefit millions of children.
