Eye Heart SOLE

Free SOLE Toolkit. GO GET.

SOLE is Self-Organized Learning Environment. It’s the TED-Prize-Winning Sugata Mitra’s plan for creating learning environments that inspire children to educate themselves, rather than threatening their brains into shutdown with rote work, tests and punishments.

You may have heard of Mr. Mitra’s experiment — I had — where he left an English-only laptop in the street near where some poor Tamil children played. When he returned weeks later, they had all taught themselves English and learned to play games on it.

SOLE, or something like it, may be one of the biggest, best things we can do for the future of humanity. GO DOWNLOAD THE DARN PDF and at least internalize some of its ideas for later!
