Have you ever heard Prof. Sugata Mitra talk about his experiments? Prof Mitra has been my constant inspiration. An important insight which Prof Mitra reports on, is: “If children have interest, then Education happens”. No matter how many resources we might use, no matter how many fancy tools or gizmos we buy for our classrooms, unless we stimulate interest – there will be no education and much less learning.
Prof. Mitra called his experiments “The Hole in the Wall” – and I would strongly suggest that you follow his discussions about the how and why he did these experiments and more importantly how it affected education? I would also invite anyone to think about how his experiments can be adapted to the classroom? What can someone do to follow in Prof. Mitra’s steps?
