I’m looking forward to meeting Sugata Mitra at Big Ideas Fest. I’m planning to interview him and other big thinkers in the field of education innovation.

In the meantime, take a look at this recent TED Talk video, in which Mitra talks about real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, where he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize how we think about teaching.
