Standard

Great talk by Sugata Mitra on leveraging the cloud to enable equitable access to informal learning.

Jay Cross in his Book on informal learning says

Formal learning is like riding a bus: the driver decides where the bus is going; the passengers are along for the ride. Informal learning is like riding a bicycle: the rider chooses the destination and the route.

Could these¬†educational systems foster such riders who may well come back with innovative solutions for the “Wicked Problems” faced by society today ?
