The Future of Education:In Seat versus Virtual Learning

In one of my “inquiring minds want to know” moods, I watched a TED video today (2/28/2013) that I found fascinating; “Build a School in the Cloud” by Dr. Sugata Mitra, an education researcher from India and the winner of the 2013 TED Prize.

In fact, I have watched it three times as of this writing.

I do not want to give anything away and introduce the video to you as it was introduced to me, with no information. I ask you to watch it (once is really enough), think about it, then email to me or post your opinion.

My philosophy concerning secondary, post-secondary and adult education theory and practice is evolving and I planning to write an essay concerning the effectiveness of in seat versus virtual learning methodologies.

My self-imposed deadline is the Ides of March (Idus Martias) and your help would be extremely useful.

Thanks – David
