Course Description

 

It's again Prof. Sugata Mitra, the winner of TED 2013, on WizIQ!

 

Professor Sugata Mitra is a visiting Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab, in Boston, USA and Professor of Educational Technology at the School of Education for Communication and Language Sciences at Newcastle University, UK.

 

 

Dr. Mitra was born in Kolkata, India. After completing his B. Sc. in Physics from Jadavpur University, Kolkata joined IIT Delhi for further studies and awarded M.Sc. in Physics with specialisation in Quantum Biology and Acoustic Holography. He had done his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in the Theoretical Solid State Physics of Organic Semiconductors from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi.

 

Dr. Sugata is famous for his Hole-in-the-Wall experiments and Granny Cloud project of volunteers. The driving force behind Hole-in-the-Wall is the concept of Minimally Invasive Education which is truly path breaking. That children could learn on their own, was something not many people would have imagined and that too in such a cost effective manner with benefits like improved group dynamics, better in-class behavior etc. These experiments shown that group of children using the Internet can achieve Educational Objectives on their own through curiosity & encouragement and can learn anything by themselves, if they can search, read, understand and believe.
