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?

Useful website

Yesterday while I was supporting the MK group I came across this website:

Highland Learning and Teaching Toolkit

If you look at Issue Papers on the right you will a number of interesting areas listed.

Each of these is introduced and explored with some recommendations of reading.

You might find some of these useful starting points when you begin to explore these areas of learning and teaching on the FDLT.
