The Educators – Sugata Mitra

smOn Wednesday 17th September Professor of Educational Technology at the University of Newcastle Sugata Mitra was interviewed by Sarah Montague on the BBC Radio 4 programme The Educators. It is available on i-player and I have saved it to Box of Broadcasts.

His TED Talk ‘School in the Clouds’ is available to watch here – Build a School in the Cloud

Professor Mitra has views about how schools, learning and teaching should be different in the twenty first century – as students working in education what do you think of his ideas?
