The next TED Talk video features Sugata Mitra, winner of the 2013 TED Prize, who describes his wish: build a School in the Cloud, where children can explore and learn from one another. The talk, 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, in the Ocean City Free Public Library auditorium, tackles one of the greatest problems of education — the best teachers and schools don’t exist where they’re needed most.
In a series of real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, Mitra gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize the way we think about teaching.
The 20 minute video will be followed by a discussion. As always, the talk is free and open to the public.
