Hole-in-the-wall Project

January 26, 2009

I find the Hole-In-The-Wall project fascinating. How kids teach themselves. Dr. Sugata Mitra’s research explores how by working with a single computer with internet access groups of kids in rural communities across India self-organize to teach themselves. A little curiosity, a little opportunity, and a gateway to content and people.

The results of his work inspire me to learn more about formal vs. informal learning. I also love the fact that having a single computer and interacting as a group is the winning combination. The process of learning is exposed through the open interactions.
