One of the most curious and historic experiments on educational technology is Sugata Mitra‘s Hole in the wall. The idea was to left a computer embedded into a wall in an Indian slum, where children were allowed to access the Internet in a free way.
As a result of the experiment, the kids learned by theirselves how to use the computer and the Internet. The Minimally Invasive Education concept, that results from the experiment, has gone beyond the anecdote and remains as a basic concept on educational technology. On the next video, Professor Sugata Mitra talks at one of the TED conferences about his experiments and the self-teaching theories. We are looking forward to listen him live on the UOC UNESCO Chair Fifth International Seminar:
